Sharp advances production at first 10th-generation LCD factory
April 16, 2009 //
To cater to market demand for LCDs in spite of the economic crisis, Sharp is bringing forward the start of production in the first 10th-generation LCD panel factory in Sakai, Japan, by five months to October 2009.
To cater to market demand, the company is bringing forward the start of production in the first 10th-generation LCD panel factory in Sakai, Japan, by five months to October 2009.
Under construction in Japan in Sakai near Osaka since the end of 2007, this modern production centre will be the first of the tenth generation, capable of processing LCD motherglass panels in a size of 8.7 square metres (2,880 mm x 3,130 mm). This makes these motherglass panels 60 percent larger than those in Sharp's current eighth-generation LCD plant, Kameyama II. Such large motherglass panels can be used to manufacture, for example six 60-inch or eight 50-inch LCD panels.
According to figures published by market research company iSuppli, global demand for display components and monitors for out-of-home use as electronic posters and billboards, adverts in stations and airports, and traffic and visitor management systems and so on will increase threefold over the next four years to more than 20 million units. Sharp's extensive portfolio of e-signage displays, including the new 108-inch and 82-inch formats matching characteristic dimensions of billboards and CityLight posters positions the company well to profit substantially from this development. The G10 factory in Sakai is the key to the highly efficient production of LCDs for this growth market.All news
