A current Gunze customer, Rockwell Collins, is a developer of ruggedized displays who provides advanced display technology to military, commercial and a variety of other demanding markets. Currently Rockwell Collins is utilizing the Gunze 7", 15" and 22" PCAP touch screen in their patented DDF(TM) lamination process for applications demanding outstanding performance for projecting through thick coverglass substrates laminated to the touch screen without interfering with display performance. Gunze's PCAP panels are durable, thin, light-weight and have lower power consumption. In addition to their exceptional durability, Gunze's projected capacitive touch panels support Windows 7 native gesturing and are highly accurate. They are available in various sizes from 7" to 22".
