LG Display is speeding up the process of shifting the weight of its business to OLED. It has been busy with preparing the groundwork for producing large OLEDs by bringing in key equipment to its Gen-10.5 OLED line in Paju and Gen-8.5 OLED line in Guangzhou one after the other.
According to the industry, LG Display is planning to bring in a stepper from Nikon this month that will be used for its Gen-10.5 OLED line within its P10 fab.
“This new stepper will be installed sometime during the next month.” said a representative for the industry. “LG Display has brought in three steppers to its P10 fab since last year.”
Stepper that is used for the front-end process of display is used to create circuits on the surface of a semiconductor wafer or the glass substrate of a TFT (Thin-Film Transistor) by shining light.
It is one of the first equipment that is ordered by display makers when they construct fabs or make investments for additional facilities and equipment. It is heard that LG Display is planning to bring in three to four additional steppers from Nikon by end of this year.
