Japan PCB Firms May Lose Ground in OLED Sector


Reading time ( words)

Japan-based PCB makers are likely to be further marginalized if Apple's reportedly plans to launch three 5G iPhones all based on OLED technology are realized, according to sources from Taiwan's PCB supply chain.

Since the lamination of PCBs used in handset displays has been carried out through direct cooperation between PCB and display makers, the adoption of OLED for Apple's 5G phones—with the panels likely to be supplied mainly by Korea's display makers—means Korea's PCB firms would replace rival Japanese companies to become major PCB suppliers for OLED displays, said the sources.

Multilayer Press Technology Using Magnetism to Produce Lamination Heat

11/11/2019 | Victor Lazaro Gallego, Chemplate Materials
A revolutionary concept in multilayer press technology has been developed that uses electromagnetic energy to heat the existing stainless-steel separator plates with a never-before dreamed-of accuracy and precision. The heating and cooling systems—embedded within a robust hydraulic press inside a vacuum chamber design—are controlled using a temperature feedback loop that guarantees perfect fidelity between the press recipe and the press result.
