LCD & OLED Display Components

Screen display technologies require supporting components that enable them to function or enhance performance. From screen bonding systems to vibration management, optically clear adhesive (OCA), window tape, barrier film and thermal management, LCD and/or OLED display technologies need these supporting solutions for trustworthy device operation over extended periods of time.

Boyd’s expertise in advanced rotary die cut converting with ultra-tight tolerances, superb cleanroom footprint and innovative raw material selections are critical to the high design and manufacturing designs of display module components. Our innovative approach to manufacturing and rotary die cut also pushes us to work “outside the box.” We search for opportunities that push the limits of product integration – utilizing our world class precision converting and manufacturing engineering knowledge to combine multiple unique products into one, simple deliverable, helping customers reduce supply chain and assembly complexity.

Our innovative segmented frame manufacturing technology for display lens adhesives and window tape gaskets allows Boyd to replace original full window frame designs that drive a high amount of material waste with yield-optimized assemblies that have zero gap tolerance, delivered to the assembly chain in a format optimized for automated as well as manual assembly operations. These solutions act as gaskets and cushions, help protect against dust, moisture and shock or vibration impact.

Boyd’s OLED advanced energy management and sealing solutions are optimized to treat energy in a variety of manifestations, including EMI, thermal spreading & insulation, sealing, encapsulating, vibration absorption & cushioning, barriers, in one to two cohesive deliverables.

Optically clear adhesive (OCA) is one of the most challenging materials to die-cut and handle but are critical to ultimate screen clarity, contrast and minimized reflection. Boyd’s Class 100 cleanroom precision converting environments and excellent historical OCA manufacturing quality make us the global leader in optically clear adhesive custom fabrication and die cutting.
