Rubbing Machine has been developed for LCD R&D Labs. The system is intended for tracing grooves on the polyimide to orient the liquid crystal molecules. The grooves are made using a special rubbing cloth having depth of a few Angstrom. The substrate is held by a vacuum chuck for which a vacuum pump is included and integrated with the system. Maximum size of glass substrate which can be loaded is 100 mm x 100mm. The substrate along with vacuum chuck is held on a rotation stage so that it can be rotated and positioned at any required angle from 0 to 180 degrees for various rubbing orientations.
The system has been developed as a standalone unit in which speed of the roller and speed of the substrate can be varied.
Rubbing machine is developed in technical collaboration with Professor Surajit Dhara, School of Physics, University of Hyderabad.
