|Product name||LCD Scanner FX-67S|
|Sales launch term||October 2012|
New Product Overview
With the increasing popularity and outspread of sophisticated mobile devices such as smartphones, the market is demanding further increased production efficiency for high definition liquid crystal display panels and OLED panels.
FX-67S is exposure equipment that supports production of high definition small and medium-sized panels using large plates. Its scanner method enables improved productivity as well as high resolution and high alignment accuracy.
Use of this FX-67S in combination with the already released FX-66S allow for formation of an optimal production line.
Main Characteristics and Specifications of FX-67S
A new adjustment mechanism has been incorporated to further improve the resolution of the multi-lens system comprising multiple projection lenses, and a new illumination system with Nikon's proprietary resolution enhancement technique has also been developed.
