LG.Philips LCD marked the opening of its 7th generation plant for volume production of TFT LCD glass substrates on April 27.

According to the company, the production facility in Paju, South Korea, will make 45,000 1,950-by-2,250mm TFT-LCD glass substrates per month by June. LG.Philips also plans to expand monthly capacity to 90,000 substrates by the end of this year. The substrates are used to produce 42- and 47-inch flat TV panels.

Located on 1.69 million m2 of land, the $5.6 billion plant is said to be the world's largest. LG.Philips is now operating a 6th generation line in Gumi that produces 32- and 36-inch LCD TV panels.

Early this week, S-LCD Corp., the LCD joint venture of Samsung Electronics and Sony Corp., announced that it will expand capacity at its 7th generation LCD fab by 50 percent. It will now process 90,000 substrates a month with an investment of about $240 million.
