NASHUA - GT Crystal Systems, a subsidiary of GT Advanced Technologies, has partnered with Motorola Solutions to be the exclusive supplier of sapphire screens for Motorola's new MP6000 multi-plane bioptic imager.
GT Crystal Systems will fabricate the 24-square-inch sapphire components in its manufacturing facility housed in Salem, Mass., according to a news release.
"This is an important development for us as it expands the adoption of our sapphire material into a new market segment," Tom Gutierrez, GT's president and CEO, said in a statement. "GT's ASF sapphire is virtually scratch-proof, making it ideally suited as a screen material over reinforced glass because it can withstand the extreme strike forces the scanner system experiences during its use."
Bob Sanders, senior vice president of Data Capture Solutions, Motorola Solutions, said GT's ASF sapphire provides the durability and longevity needed to ensure optimal performance.
