Is your industrial touch screen monitor misbehaving? Flickering? Not responding? Most resistive touch screens are designed to last for more than 35 million touches in one spot before failing, as much as 4 times longer lasting than the display. That sounds like a helluva lot of touches but that depends on the application. For example, a touch screen used in a popular national-chain pizza delivery shop could get 35 million touches very quickly.
When problems do arise with industrial touch screens before it becomes aged, it is often due to misuse or an accident. A good industrial touch screen should not require calibration for quite a long time, unless it is getting banged around in your shop, which, unfortunately, is not a rare occurrence.

Buying used industrial electronic equipment or reusing shelved or mothballed equipment can indeed save a lot of money, BUT it can also result in some costly problems.
When you buy used you can end up buying someone else’s problems and if you dig out your own mothballed machinery, you can only hope that it was put away and marked properly.
No matter what size plant you operate, you can employ Predictive Maintenance technologies to evaluate the operating condition of used or mothballed equipment. You probably already do this on some level, only you didn’t call it anything fancy. You still don’t have to call it anything fancy, but applying some fundamental tests and organization to the process can help make it more effective thus saving time and money, and isn’t that what we all want to do?
