Table of contents

(1) Assessment of rubber roll mounting quality

Industry: Displays, Prited boards, Lead frames, etc
Challenges: If the adhension of the rubber to the steel core of the lamination nip roll is poor or if the rubber is damaged, lamination defects occur.
Benefits of Prescale: Time saving, Quality improvemnet

(2) Checking adhesive pressure of dry film resist (DFR) lamination

Industry: Printed Circuit Board(PCB), Lead frames, Liquid crystal, etc
Challenges: Bubbles and wrinkes can be formed if the base material/dry film resist/lamination roll is not set up in balance or if the pressure is not adjusted to be uniform. 
Benefits of Prescale: Time saving, Material savings

(3) Checking the water resistance of mobile phones and improving the stability of related production processes

Industry: Manufacture of mobile phones, smartphones, and tablet computers
Challenges: Need to ensure that uniform pressure is applied by the assembly jigs during the assembly of waterproof devices.
Benefits of Prescale: Yield improvement, Quality improvement, Accuracy improvement

(4) Checking drum (roller) pressure uniformity when attaching functional films(OCA, AG, AR, polarizing plates, etc.) to cover glass and touch panels

Industry: Touch panels and LCDs
Challenges: If the pressure balance during this process is incorrect, air bubbles, wrinkles, positional displacement and other errors may occur, causing product failures.
Benefits of Prescale: Quality loss prevention, Time loss prevention

(5) Checking roller pressure uniformity when attaching the cover glass to touch panels or LCDs.

Industry: Touch panels and LCDs
Challenges: Since precision attachment is required between these hard materials, uneven pressure during the attachment process can cause air bubbles and other probelms.
Benefits of Prescale: Quality loss prevention, Time loss prevention

(6) To check pressure uniformity between the polisher stage and polishing sheet of the Panel polishing equipment

Industry:  LCDs production
Challenges: To prevent air bubbles may form it is very important to maintain sufficient, uniform pressure between the panel and the polishing sheet.
Benefits of Prescale: Reduce of low quality product loss, Time saving

(7) Verification of pressure uniformity of vacuum heat pressure devices

Industry: Electronic components, OLEDs, Touchscreens, Print circuit boards, Equipment such as semiconductors that are used as manufacturing and development machines
Challenges: The devices are expected or required to maintain as uniform surface pressure as long as possible to improve the quality of processed products.
Benefits of Prescale: Reduce of pressure failure or yield, Quality improvement
