3M's Command Strips for Touch Sensors Helps Casinos Save Time and Money



Quick Removal and Easy Integration Features

METHUEN, Mass. - April 14, 2009 - 3M Touch Systems, a wholly owned subsidiary of the 3M Company and a leading innovator and manufacturer of touch technology, announces today the availability of Command Strips for Touch Sensors, a new and unique method for removing and integrating touch sensors. Developed specifically for the 3M MicroTouch System SCT3250EX (formerly the 3M MicroTouch ClearTek II touch system) and based on Command's "peel and stick" adhesive and patented "stretch release" technology, 3M Touch Systems now offers casino operators a cost-effective and time-saving alternative to established time-consuming touch display repairs.

Replacing a damaged touch sensor or a working sensor on a broken LCD display can take experienced slot technicians nearly an hour. Using Command Strips for Touch Sensors, touch sensors can be removed in seconds by merely pulling the exposed tabs. And, by using the Command peel and stick strips, a touch sensor can be quickly integrated in minutes, especially since Command's stretch release technology leaves no difficult-to-remove adhesive residue to clean. Casinos adopting this mounting method can reduce their future touch sensor replacement time and help return repaired games to the casino floor more quickly.

"For more than 25 years 3M Touch Systems has been working with casinos to provide reliable and robust touch technology to keep their gaming machines up and running. Now, by leveraging this well-known Command Strips product, we're able to help operators improve the cost and efficiency of their gaming machine maintenance," says Scott Hagermoser, gaming business manager, 3M Touch Systems.

Command Strips for Touch Sensors are available from these 3M authorized distributors: EuroCoin Ltd. (Europe), JCM Global (North America) and the Suzo-Happ Group (North America). In Asia-Pacific region, contact local 3M representatives.
