Samsungs panel factory recently will adopt new equipment to their own flexible OLED panel upgrade
Recently, Samsung Display, the panel maker of Samsung, will upgrade its own flexible OLED panel with new equipment, further reducing costs, enhancing product competitiveness and consolidating its position as the leading OLED panel in the world.
Beijing November 6 news, Samsung OLED technology upgrade or impact on domestic manufacturers. Recently, Samsung Display, the panel maker of Samsung, will upgrade its own flexible OLED panel with new equipment, further reducing costs, enhancing product competitiveness and consolidating its position as the leading OLED panel in the world.
According to industry sources, Samsung Display's flexible OLED panels will be manufactured using laser lift-off (LLO) devices. LLO originally used excimer laser technology, AP System is its sole supplier, and now more to the use of diode-pumped solid-state (DPSS) technology, the supplier list to add more Philoptics.
Semiconductor laser-pumped solid-state lasers (LDPSSL), as its name implies, are laser generation devices using LD or LD arrays (LDAs) as pumping sources and solid-state laser materials as gain mediums. This laser core is free of liquids (dyes, water, etc.) or gases (such as inert gases) and is often referred to as All Solid State Laser.
The biggest advantage of DPSS technology is low cost and easy maintenance. And switch to DPSS, the equipment needed for each production line will also be reduced, greatly reducing construction costs.
After Samsung Display switched to DPSS technology, it is speculated that 70% of LLO devices purchased in 2016 will come from Philoptics, and almost all of the LLO devices will be purchased from Philoptics by 2017.
Faced with the share of the crisis is being squeezed, AP System began to turn their attention to Chinese manufacturers to help Chinese manufacturers to develop OLED screen. In the meantime, Philoptics has not let up this vast market in China and signed a $ 6 million contract with Kunshan Guoxian Optoelectronics in September.
China's BOE has just released a sixth-generation OLED display production line this year, which indicates that China has already broken the monopoly of Samsung OLED display. However, when the rivals are getting stronger and stronger, the domestic manufacturers can not relax for a moment and only persevere Efforts in order to have a place in the market in the future.
