LG Electronics announces that it upgraded its Plasma Display plants to 8-up PDP Production.
This technique will maximize LG’s PDP production capacity by allowing the company to produce eight PDPs from one sheet of glass substrate, up from the current six.
The improved 8-up processing will increase LG’s total capacity per month by 22%, from 360,000 to 440,000 panels. LG also began mass production of 50-inch Full HD TVs last week as part of its ongoing efforts to focus on premium display products. According to DisplaySearch, demand for plasma display panels is expected to continue to increase in 2007, from 2.3 million in the first quarter to 2.7 million in the second quarter, 3.2 million in the third quarter, and 4 million in the fourth quarter.
LG Electronics started the new 8-up process yesterday.
