3M solutions help customers

3M(TM) Dual-Touch Display C1910PS Bezel-FreeThe 3M Electronic Solutions Division is a leading provider of advanced electronic thin substrates and sensors, components, and comprehensive systems for enhancing and managing electronic signal properties. Our solutions help customers – many of them household names – in consumer electronics, touch panels, enterprise and networking, industrial and factory automation, semiconductor and component markets worldwide.

3M leverages its expertise in materials and electronic signal transmission to develop practical and high frequency solutions for board level and cabling applications in high performance computing and data centers, and in projected capacitive (PCAP) touchscreen technology and electronics – the same touch technology found in smart phones and tablets – in kiosks and retail applications, for example:

  • Designers of high-performance computing systems, data centers and other ultra-high-throughput networks have a new interconnect option for SFP+ applications.  3M now offers the low-power, high-speed Active Optical Cable (AOC) Assembly for SFP+ Applications. The first known cable assembly of its kind available on the market designed for reaches up to 100 meters. The direct-attach, bi-directional AOC assembly supports speeds of more than 10 Gbps per channel over OM 2+ bend-insensitive fiber. It can be used to connect high-performance switches, servers and storage.
  • In display technology, new Dual-Touch Chassis Displays – 15, 17 and 19 inches – provide kiosk and enclosure manufacturers with a responsive, durable dual-touch display solution for heavy-use public environments. These robust projected capacitive interactive displays meet the requirements of a one-user, gesture-based interface by supporting common gestures such as flick, pan, zoom and rotate. Add the durability of its metal housing, chemically-strengthened glass, anti-glare surface, and easy-to-integrate flat front surface design and kiosk manufacturers now have the ideal interactive display for upcoming kiosk programs or upgrading existing installations.

3M markets products through a network of authorized distributors who are able to ship from stock and offer many value-added services in most countries of the world.  Find out more at
