Selecting an Industrial Computer or Rugged Tablet for Your Manufacturing Environment
Touchscreen computers and tablets are an integral part of modern production lines in the food manufacturing, packaging, and material handling industries. Computer hardware directly affects the efficiency, productivity, resiliency, and overall profitability of your production lines. Careful consideration must be taken to ensure the computer or tablet will integrate well into your production environment. It must meet the demands of the physical environment, be compatible with Aptean software, and operate without failure for several years.

This seminar discusses some key items to consider when selecting computer hardware and provides an overview of Teguar’s proven Aptean compliant touchscreen computers and rugged tablets.
