GDS Invests in New Taiwanese Clean Room
GDS INVESTS IN NEW TAIWANESE CLEAN ROOM TO ENSURE OPTIMUM LCD DISPLAY PERFORMANCE
Global Display Solutions Ltd., market leader in the design and manufacture of industrial monitors has recently made a significant investment in a new, cutting-edge clean room for the controlled assembly of high brightness LCD modules. The new clean room, which has been built at GDS's manufacturing plant in Taiwan, meets international standards of air cleanliness (Class 10,000, where there exists no more than 10,000 particles larger than 0.5 microns in any given cubic foot of air).
GDS has built the 100m² clean room to protect its sensitive LCD modules from contamination by airborne particles during the assembly process, thereby improving reliability and longevity. Such contamination can permanently damage the LCD modules and thereby the displays in which they are fitted. GDS's Mitra system, which enabled the first commercially viable high brightness display to be developed is amongst the modules that will be assembled in the clean room.
Marco Cohen, Sales Manager of GDS comments "The GDS team is 100% committed to ensuring that our LCD displays are the highest quality and most reliable on the market. This is why we have invested so heavily in this state-of-the-art clean room. With the clean room's highly regulated air quality, temperature and humidity, any chance of contaminating the LCD modules is significantly reduced."
The new clean room has advanced technology with a nine-step airflow system ensuring that the air is repeatedly filtered to remove damaging dust particles and other impurities. To ensure GDS workers do not contaminate the room, they have to undergo a rigorous decontamination process which involves donning an anti-dust working suit or 'bunny suit'. This prevents skin and hair particles from entering the room's atmosphere. The workers then have to go through an air-shower followed by a small pass box before entering the clean room. All tables in the clean room are made from stainless steel to avoid any particles from collecting on the table surface.
