LG Electronics starts 8-up PDP production LG Electronics has begun 8-up processing on its A3 plasma display panel (PDP) line. The move was made to ramp up production capacity. The technique will allow LG to produce a maximum of 8 panels from one sheet of glass substrate. Previously, the maximum umber of panels created from a sheet of glass substrate was 6.
Simon Kang, CEO of Digital Display Company, LGE said that the company will accommodate increasing demand for PDPs by maximizing its production efficiency, especially in the second half of the year. "This is part of LGE's ongoing campaign to streamline its production system," Kang added.

With the help of 8-up processing, LG has increased its total capacity per month by 22%, from 360,000 to 440,000 panels, even greater than the total capacity before its A1 line was shut down. Glass substrates used for LGE's 8-up PDP production will be increased to 1,9562,200mm in size from the previous 1,9561,650mm size.

Last week, LG Electronics also began mass production of 50-inch full high-definition TVs (HDTVs) as part of its ongoing efforts to focus on premium display products.

All well and good for LG to make new products but i rather pay a little extra and get a stable product.
