Sharp Corp. plans to double the current production capacity at its LCD panel plant located in Green Front Sakai, Sakai City, Osaka Prefecture, Japan, to 72,000 substrates per month.

This LCD panel plant is the first in the world to employ 10th-generation glass substrates. Using Sharp's proprietary UV2A photo-alignment technology, the plant produces high-contrast panels offering outstanding energy efficiency in screen sizes of 40 inches and larger. These panels have been highly rated by LCD TV manufacturers around the world.

The plant is currently in full operation, running at an input capacity of 36,000 substrates per month. To accommodate brisk order inquiries, Sharp will double this capacity to 72,000 substrates per month in July of this year.
