PanelMappers and FilmMappers

Successfully installed and operated in major production lines since 2006.

Axometrics PanelMapper systems combine tilt and rotation measurements with arbitrarily large XY table, allowing complete characterization of large samples across the entire surface of large samples. All systems are engineered for clean room use and can be used in a laboratory or on the production floor.

PanelMappers

These are typically used for offline R&D and QC of liquid crystal displays (before polarizer attachment). PanelMapper systems have an optional film mounting vacuum plate to allow measuring cut film samples up to the same size as the LCD panels being tested.

Measurements:

  • All LC parameters (cell gap, rubbing directions, twist angle, pre-tilt angles)
  • All polarizer and retarder film film parameters

Standard Sizes:

  • 16:9 Panels up to 20", 42", 60", and 85"
  • Undiced motherglass from Gen 3 up to Gen 10

Other Options:

  • Optical gauging system
  • Removable vacuum plate for holding cut film samples

FilmMappers

For very large film samples, such as cross-web pieces cut from the beginning or end of a full roll, dedicated FilmMapper systems allow the largest possible film samples to be tested. A vacuum film mounting plate is permanently installed in the systems.

Measurements:

  • All polarizer and retarder film film parameters
  • Includes multi-layer film testing

Standard Sizes:

  • 2000 x 500 mm
  • Custom sizes available

Other Options:

  • Optical gauging system
