LG Display Selects Orbotech AOI for South Korea Facility


Reading time ( words)

Orbotech Ltd. announced today that LG Display has ordered multiple Quantum AOI (automated optical inspection) for Flex solutions for its new flexible OLED Gen 6 fab in Paju, South Korea, which is intended for flexible mobile device display production. Delivery of Orbotech’s solutions is expected to be split between the first quarter and the second quarter of 2018.

The production process required for flexible OLED panels is more sophisticated and complex than the traditional LCD manufacturing process due to its reduced layer thickness and increased number of stages. Based on Orbotech’s patented multi-modality imaging (MMI) technology, the Quantum™ AOI for Flex series is a comprehensive yield enhancement solution for high quality inspection, detection, classification and 3D measurement of critical defects that impact the quality and the lifetime of the final flexible OLED display.

"This repeat order from LG Display is testament to the high quality of Orbotech’s advanced solutions," stated Edu Meytal, President of Orbotech Pacific Display. “Orbotech’s end-to-end advanced AOI display solutions are designed specifically to address the unique challenges posed by flexible OLED panel production and will enable our customers to produce the most advanced FPD products with high yields.”

While there are many Chinese companies now selling in the United States, I wanted to find one in Taiwan that is penetrating the U.S. market. I was delighted to come across EISO Enterprise Co. Ltd., a printed circuit board fabricator located in Taiwan. I know that the American companies are usually looking for PCB global partners in countries other than China, which made my conversation with Gary (Jung Kun) Chien all the more interesting, especially when he shared his thoughts on the U.S-China trade wars.

Quality and Continuous Improvement

02/24/2021 | Patrick Valentine, UYEMURA USA
The concern for quality control and reduced product variation can be traced back centuries. Archaic quality control methods were used by the Xia Dynasty in 2100 BC in ancient China. During the late 1290s in medieval Europe, guilds—the pre-cursor to unions—were responsible for product and service quality. From 1700 to 1900, product quality was determined by the individual craftsman’s efforts. At the close of the 19th century, Eli Whitney introduced standardized, interchangeable parts to simplify assembly.
