Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd has begun construction of another TFT-LCD mass production line, Line No.6, in Chonan, Korea.

Samsung's newest TFT-LCD line will produce 17-inch or larger monitor panels and TV receiver panels of larger sizes than 20-inches. Furthermore, Line 6 will manufacture substrates measuring 1,100mm-by-1,300mm which are suitable for LCD TV receiver applications.

The new production line is scheduled for initial start-up at the end of this year. The production capacity of Line 6 will be 60,000 fifth-generation glass substrates per month when in full operation. Samsung Electronics has commenced operations at its line "No. 5" last September, and with the additional capacity from Line 6, Samsung targets to produce a monthly input of 160,000 fifth-generation substrates.

Samsung is currently reviewing plans for installing a seventh-generation TFT-LCD line.
