Corning ha annunciato la sua ultima innovazione: Gorilla Glass 3D.

Pronto per immagini uniche, senza sacrificare la resistenza e senza aggiungere spessore“, questa è la frase con cui Corning ha annunciato l’ultima innovazione in termini di schermi. Infatti stavolta l’azienda si è veramente superata, producendo qualcosa di assolutamente nuovo tra tutti i prodotti da lei sfornati.

La cosa fantastica dell’annuncio non è che potremo avere il 3D su alcuni dei dispositivi tecnologici che usciranno nel 2014, dato che ormai molti altri produttori hanno implementato questa nuova tecnologia nei propri prodotti, ma che Corning sta sviluppando degli schermi che  introdurranno questa nuova tecnologia senza aggiungere spessore nei loro prodotti e senza comprometterne la resistenza e la proprietà antigraffio degli stessi. Questo è parte di una soluzione “un solo corpo” che Corning sta sviluppando, con la quale non servirà più l’aggiunta di pezzi di trasporto, ma il tutto sarà contenuto nel prodotto, come ha affermato James R. Steiner, vice presidente e general manager:

“Ora possiamo definire Gorilla Glass 3D un prodotto finito, ricavato da una lamiera di metallo. Presto arriverà dall’Asia con tempi di consegna ridotti e diminuzione dell’impiego di logistiche. Questa è una vittoria per Corning e per tutti i nostri clienti”.

Abbiamo già visto i progetti di smartphone curvi sia da parte di LG che Samsung, e quindi possiamo intendere che le linee curve sono il design dei prossimi device. Anche per questo Corning ha creato soluzioni arrotondate in 3D. Essa sarà presente al CES 2014 di Las Vegas, e quindi vedremo cosa proporrà quest’anno; continuate a seguirci per avere altre informazioni sui prodotti Corning.

Di seguito riportiamo l’informativa proposta dalla Corning in lingua originale:

Corning and GTOC Announce Manufacturing Readiness for 3D-Shaped Gorilla ® Glass

Vertically integrated operations in Taiwan

CORNING, NY, January 03, 2014 – Corning Incorporated (NYSE: GLW) today announced securities the manufacturing readiness of a novel 3D glass-forming technology to shape Corning ® Gorilla ® Glass. Corning is targeting commercialization of finished 3D-shaped parts Gorilla Glass in 2014 and is working with G-Tech Optoelectronics Corp. (GTOC) to Establish a vertically integrated operation in Taiwan.

Product design Continues to drive the consumer electronics industry. More than half of the top 10 smartphone manufacturers market devices That Already embedded cover glass with subtle curves, and the demand for even more-dramatic form factors is Increasing. Corning’s 3D-forming technology meets this demand and Expands the design possibilities for industrial designers.

The relationship with GTOC Allows to Corning Provided for “one-roof” solution. “We can now take Gorilla Glass all the way from flat sheet to a finished 3D-shaped product in Asia, expediting turnaround times and Minimizing logistical complexity,” said James R. Steiner, senior vice president and general manager, Corning Specialty Materials. “That’s a win for Corning and our customers.”

Corning’s 3D-forming technology can Achieve precise tolerances and high throughput on a platform That is more economical than two-mold alternative forming methods. This technology uses Gorilla Glass of uniform thickness, assisting designers to introduce thinner and lighter devices and leverage the emergence of conformable displays for mobile and wearable applications.
