Manufacturing error-free flat panel displays is a challenge, because as display performance improves, manufacturing processes become more complex and panel defects can become more common.
Inspection and repair procedures have been developed to ensure that errors have minimal effect on display quality.
Renishaw's ATOM encoder system has been integrated into a variable aperture stop design.
Precise manipulation of the laser aperture, in the range of 5 - 50 microns (um) in diameter, is vital to ensure successful panel repair.

Located in Budapest, Hungary, 3DHISTECH designs and manufactures one of the world's fastest and highest-capacity autonomous panoramic digital slide scanners – the P1000. The P1000 is a highly accurate scanning microscope that enables large routine pathology labs to capture ultra-high resolution images of medical samples, while operating unmanned for up to 2 days. Building upon 3DHISTECH's successful product range, this new generation of digital slide scanner is the first to have integrated optical and magnetic position feedback encoders for enhanced throughput. With Renishaw's technical support, 3DHISTECH's engineering team were able to specify an encoder for each machine axis and find the appropriate encoder products for their applications. Renishaw's advanced encoders, such as the VIONiC™ series, enable the P1000 to achieve truly market-leading performance.
The QUANTiC™ series of encoders are made for manufacturing industries. The QUANTiC encoders are easy to install with exceptionally wide installation and running tolerances, along with built-in installation and calibration functions. QUANTiC encoders combine high speed interpolation with impressive metrology performance, whilst being compatible with the Advanced Diagnostic Tool, ADTi-100.
Learn how to install the TONiC super-compact digital encoder readhead.
Please refer to the relevant TONiC installation guide for more information.
The TONiC encoder series is Renishaw’s super-compact, non-contact incremental optical encoder that offers speeds up to 10 m/s and, when combined with the Ti interface, resolutions down to 1 nm for both linear and rotary applications.
TONiC systems are quick and simple to install with wide set-up tolerances and calibration at the push of a button. TONiC's dynamic signal processing gives improved signal stability with ultra-low Sub-Divisional Error, high running speeds and compatibility with linear and rotary applications. This makes TONiC suitable for the highest of performance applications where speed and accuracy are crucial. TONiC UHV is available for ultra-high vacuum applications.
Renishaw’s expert engineers introduce the technology behind the new ATOM DX™ digital encoder.
The ATOM DX encoder builds on Renishaw's ATOM™ miniature encoder series, first launched in 2014, and incorporates advanced interpolation technology originally developed for the VIONiC™ and QUANTiC™ digital encoder families. The combination of miniature size, digital quadrature output direct from the readhead and Renishaw's market proven filtering optics create a powerful foundation for the building blocks of a motion system.
