Post Time:Mar 11,2009Classify:Company NewsView:437

LG Display announced that its 8th-generation LCD plant in Paju, Korea has begun mass production. The 8th-generation LCD line will primarily manufacture 32-, 47- and 55- inch TV panels from its 2,200 X 2,500mm glass substrates.

The new LCD line was designed to remove wasteful factors, maximize investment efficiency and per capita productivity, and adopt multiple new technologies. The company invested 2,535 billion won in the line, excluding the building costs.

According to LG Display, initial monthly capacity will start with 20,000 input sheets of glass substrate. The company will adjust the ramp-up speed according to market circumstances and gradually increase monthly capacity to design capacity of 83,000 sheets by the end of the year.

The LCD maker said the start of mass production at the 8th-generation plant will enable the company to actively respond to growing market demands, further stimulated by narrowing price gap between LCD TV and CRT TV, and the rapidly increasing Chinese market due to the Chinese government's Home Appliances to the Countryside policy.
