Experimental production line for 27” liquid crystal display production

December 31, 2021

EuroLCDs Ltd in the framework of project “Experimental production line for 27” liquid crystal display production” is moving on with project.

As reported earlier suppliers’ engineers for on-site work are necessary to finalize equipment setup process. We are now in negotiation status with supplier on possibilities to solve this issue taking into account pandemics situation in Latvia and time frame for project completion. After final setups additional testing round and final acceptance test should be carried out. Above mentioned actions have to be implemented till 11th June of 2022.

Project is implemented with European Union Regional development fund co-financing (project number 1.2.1.4/18/A/017). Total costs are planned to be 1.25 million euro, including ineligible costs and European Union co-funding 493 123.60 EUR. Project implementation deadline is the mid of 2022nd.

EuroLCDs Ltd in the framework of project “Experimental production line for 27” liquid crystal display production” is moving on with project.

We are continuing testing received equipment and have made some samples. After first trials we have discovered necessity to improve equipment capabilities which requests supplier engineers on-site work to be carried out which is difficult due to pandemics situation in Latvia.

Project is implemented with European Union Regional development fund co-financing (project number 1.2.1.4/18/A/017). Total costs are planned to be 1.25 million euro, including ineligible costs and European Union co-funding 493 123.60 EUR. Project implementation deadline is the mid of 2022nd

EuroLCDs Ltd in the framework of project “Experimental production line for 27” liquid crystal display production” is moving on with project. At this moment we are in final equipment testing phase and first prototype 27” samples have been made. We are planning that this phase will take more time than planned initially as only remote assistance for equipment set-up from manufacturer is available due to uncertain pandemics situation. Project is implemented with European Union Regional development fund co-financing (project number 1.2.1.4/18/A/017). Total costs are planned to be 1.25 million euro, including ineligible costs and European Union co-funding 493 123.60 EUR. Project implementation deadline is the mid of 2022nd.

EuroLCDs Ltd in the framework of project “Experimental production line for 27” liquid crystal display production” is moving on with project. Due to raised pandemics levels in Europe some additionally necessary parts for equipment delivery have been delayed up to 2 months. Delays of deliveries have postponed equipment testing phase start and we are still in equipment integration stage. At this moment, only remote assistance for equipment set-up from manufacturer is planned as pandemics situation in Latvia haven’t improved significantly. Project is implemented with European Union Regional development fund co-financing (project number 1.2.1.4/18/A/017). Total costs are planned to be 1.25 million euro, including ineligible costs and European Union co-funding 493 123.60 EUR. Project implementation deadline is the mid of 2022nd.

EUROLCDS Ltd in the framework of project “Experimental production line for 27” liquid crystal display production” has found a several solutions to move on with project implementation with support of Central Financing and Contracting agency and other public institutions despite raised pandemics levels in Europe. Main equipment with delay, but have been received in our factory on 11th January. Shipping was much longer than expected. Now we carry on with necessary infrastructure work to start equipment set up as soon as possible. It looks like only remote assistance for equipment set-up from manufacturers will be possible due pandemics rise in Europe, including Latvia where it looks like emergency situation won’t finish as soon as we would like to. Consequently, equipment set-up can delay significantly which will leave less time for us for experimental technology testing and implementation in production. Project is implemented with European Union Regional development fund co-financing (project number 1.2.1.4/18/A/017). Total costs are planned to be 1.25 million euro, including ineligible costs and European Union co-funding EUR 493 123.60. Project implementation deadline is the mid of 2022nd.

Laser upgrade was successfully finished in October. Supplier staff from UK traveled to Latvia under professional visit scheme with permission from Investment and Development agency of Latvia. Main equipment pre-acceptance testing (PAT) in supplier factory has been done. It was carried out using available online video solutions. Equipment has been loaded on ship in Korea harbor and it’s on its way to our factory in Latvia. We are expecting to receive it till the end of this year. Project is implemented with European Union Regional development fund co-financing (project number 1.2.1.4/18/A/017). Total costs are planned to be 1.25 million euro, including ineligible costs and European Union co-funding EUR 493 123.60. Project implementation deadline is the mid of 2022nd.

EUROLCDS Ltd in the framework of project “Experimental production line for 27” liquid crystal display production” has signed contract with main production line component supplier about ODF (one drop fill) equipment delivery. We are planning to receive and set-up equipment during first half of the next year. Most of experimental equipment specific details are already discussed and tested on small scale. Equipment is in production process phase and might be finished already till the end of this year. Delivery and set-up process will take extra time due to long transportation time and additional requirements for setting it up in clean-room environment. Other line parts has been ordered as well to achieve opportunity to obtain full cycle production of 27” displays. Delivery is planned till the main equipment is received. Necessary measuring equipment to be received within this project is partly ordered and already partly received. Project is implemented with European Union Regional development fund co-financing (project number 1.2.1.4/18/A/017). Total costs are planned to be 1.25 million euro, including ineligible costs and European Union co-funding EUR 493 123.60. Project implementation deadline is the end of 2021st.
