LG.Philips LCD has announced that it has commenced mass production at P7, its 7th generation plant in Paju, Korea, by beginning the production of 42-inch panels from its 1,950-by-2,250mm glass substrates.

The company started the pilot run for P7 at the end of November 2005. The first phase of P7 is scheduled to reach a production capacity of 45,000 glass sheets per month by Q3 2006, and the facility is expected to reach its initial design capacity of 90,000 input sheets per month by Q1 2007. This will enable LG.Philips to quickly respond to the fast growing demand for large and wide LCD TVs.

The 7th generation line will initially manufacture 42-inch TV panels and then gradually increase the production ratio of 47-inch TV products. The 7th generation line is capable of producing eight 42-inch panels or six 47-inch panels from a single glass substrate.

The company added that they are the only panel maker who operates both 6th and 7th generation lines.
