Decorating, bonding, nameplates, and labels for an ultrasound

One of the growing capabilities at GM Nameplate is front panel integration. We currently provide the front panel integration for many customers across nearly every industry. Recently, we provided ultrasound device manufacturer, Fujifilm SonoSite with front panel integration for their X-Porte ultrasound kiosk device.

For the X-Porte device, we provided the decorative cover glass and bonded the cover glass to the display. The manufacturing process involved printing specialty ink and Sonosite’s reflective chrome logo. Once decorated, the cover glass was integrated to the display using our liquid optically clear adhesive (LOCA) bonding process.

Before going into production, significant time was spent developing the inks and process to ensure that the liquid adhesive to cure. Once everything was set, the production team faced various challenges in assuring the best quality display. Due to the design, there were extremely tight tolerances in both the printing and bonding process

The end result? A beautifully bonded front panel display assembly, with added durability and sunlight readability benefits!
