Automobile trends continue to advance connected, autonomous, shared and electric vehicles – and automotive displays are central to helping deliver these trends to market. Drivers are demanding in-vehicle displays perform like consumer electronic devices delivering critical information as well as infotainment. The unique operating environment of automotive displays requires technology that helps deliver performance and design flexibility while enhancing the safety of HMI – and that calls for thoughtful innovation.
3M has a long and storied history brining innovation to the automotive industry. Combining our automotive knowledge with our expertise in consumer electronics has helped us identify issues and provide solutions that help enable designers and engineers deliver an excellent in-cabin experience. See how 3M technology can be applied to help you solve some of your most difficult challenges.
Harnessing and manipulating light not only empowers visionary HMI designs, but can ensure critical information is seen easily and reliably. 3M technology helps enable automotive displays direct and enhance light precisely where needed, while keeping light reflections in check.
Information communicated to drivers via automotive displays must be visible under many conditions, while helping to keep the driver free of distractions. As larger, curved, floating and browless designs gain traction, the job of making those designs functionally possible is no small job. These display designs must support an ever-increasing amount of information and data – audio systems, navigation systems, vehicle cameras and various driver curated apps depend on the display as the key medium for interaction and communication.
We deliver solutions in foam tapes, structural liquid adhesives and optically clear adhesives that are designed to solve a broad range of bonding challenges including impact absorption, fatigue resistance, moisture protection, environmental robustness, anti-shatter and light efficiency and transfer.
EMI solutions from 3M help manage interference by providing low and stable contact resistance and helping improve signal to noise ratio. In addition, our solutions provide reliable adhesion which enhances consistent electric and magnetic performance in rugged environmental conditions.
To help keep critical systems running, that connect drivers and allow vehicles to perform safely and reliably, it is imperative to protect the sensitive equipment that keeps the systems going. As displays increase in size and reliance on touchscreen technology interface grows, foams that can absorb and disperse impact energy and help reduce point loads which are key to helping keep infotainment touchscreens and digital dashboards working.
Our highly damped foams deliver 60% to 70% impact absorption, are available in multiple stiffnesses and thicknesses and can be laminated to adhesives and die cut to meet your unique design needs, helping improve product longevity.
