Title: SUBSTRATE ETCHING APPARATUS AND A LCD MANUFACTURING LINE, PARTICULARLY FOR REDUCING THE WEIGHT OF AN LCD BY ETCHING A SUBSTRATE OR A LIQUID CRYSTAL PANEL
Abstract:
PURPOSE: A substrate etching apparatus and an LCD(Liquid Crystal Display) manufacturing line are provided to speedily etch substrates and liquid crystal panels by automatically realizing etching for them in the middle of a manufacturing line. CONSTITUTION: An etching apparatus comprises a robot(35), an etching cassette(44), a cassette fixing part(40), and an etcher. The robot, where a substrate(1) is laid, moves up and down. The etching cassette fixes the substrate loaded by the robot. The cassette fixing part, to which at least one etching cassette is fixed, rotates at a preset angle and arranges the substrate at right angles to the ground. The etcher etches the substrate arranged at right angles to the ground. ©KIPO 2008
