    Epson Develops “First” Inkjet Equipment for Manufacturing Color Filters
    DEC
    2006 — Seiko Epson Corp has developed inkjet equipment for
    manufacturing color filters compatible with 8th-generation large LCDs.
    This equipment has been installed at Sharp Corp’s Kameyama Plant No. 2
    and is in operation for production of color filters destined for
    Sharp’s latest large-screen LCD TVs.The inkjet-based color filter
    manufacturing technique grew out of research into industrial
    applications for inkjet technology conducted by Epson over many years.
    Through its participation in the Future Vision project to develop
    next-generation displays, the company worked this research into a
    method for manufacturing large-screen LCD TVs that has attracted
    attention for its remarkable effectiveness in reducing both the
    environmental impact and the cost of manufacturing. Epson will continue
    to develop its inkjet-based manufacturing equipment business –
    including color filter applications — to contribute to the widespread
    introduction of next-generation manufacturing processes.Based on
    original Micro Piezo head techniques accumulated in the course of its
    inkjet printer business, the company has researched and developed new
    technologies for applying inkjet methods to industrial processes. These
    efforts have resulted in a range of applications including a method of
    forming alignment layers for LCDs using inkjet technology — claimed to
    be the world’s first industrial application of inkjet technology.
    Manufacturing of color filters with inkjet methods is another result of
    the R&D conducted by Epson’s LCD business over the last 10 years
    with a view to commercialization of industrial inkjet applications.At
    the same time, the company took part in the project led by Future
    Vision to develop next-generation displays and looked at how its
    original technologies could help to advance industrial processes. By
    cooperating with Sharp Corp, which also took part in the project, the
    company succeeded in developing the world’s first manufacturing
    technology to produce color filters for large-screen LCD TVs using
    inkjet methods.Compared to conventional color filter manufacturing
    methods, this new technology achieves better color properties.
    Moreover, it is an environmentally friendly next-generation
    manufacturing technology that significantly reduces waste volumes. Amid
    trends towards larger flat panel displays and lower prices, inkjet is
    likely to become the mainstream method of manufacturing color filters.
    More than 50% of color filter manufacturing for large-screen LCD TVs is
    forecast to switch to inkjet methods within the next three years,
    making this technology the de facto industry standard.
