Sharp Corp.'s Kameyama Plant No. 2 will begin processing glass substrates for LCD panels this month, the company disclosed recently. Production of large-screen LCD TV models equipped with these LCD panels will start on September for markets around the world.

Plant No. 2 will use 8G glass substrates (2,160-by-2,460mm), the world's largest, with about double the surface area of the 6G glass substrates (1,500-by-1,800mm) produced in Kameyama Plant No. 1,which is designed for production of LCD panels used in 30-inch class LCD TVs. According to Sharp, these 8G glass substrates provide optimal production efficiency for LCD panels used in 40-inch and 50-inch class LCD TVs, and the introduction of unprecedented new production processes and compact, high-density layout designs for production equipment have made it possible to cut production lead times in half.

Sharp added that the production technology innovations will enable Plant No. 2 to reach a level of investment productivity (in 45-inch panel equivalents) and approximately double that of Plant No. 1. The company has also been working with material suppliers since the initial design phase to develop new parts and materials for the key components that go into making up the LCD modules.
