Abstract

Display panels are manufactured using wire, such as iron-nickel, chromium-copper, and other conductive wire combinations, including electroplated wire, 0.002-0.006 inch in diameter to provide conductor electrodes. These wires may be flattened to provide a smoother surface.

Gas Panel Manufacture Using Wire Conductor Electrodes

Display panels are manufactured using wire, such as iron-nickel, chromium- copper, and other conductive wire combinations, including electroplated wire,
0.002-0.006 inch in diameter to provide conductor electrodes. These wires may be flattened to provide a smoother surface.

Wire feeders similar to those used to automatically string ferrite cores on wires for core memory production are used, to provide the required numbers of wires to be rolled through a holding matrix. A transfer frame is then attached by pressure to the wires. The wires are now cut from the feeder matrix and the transfer frame holding the wires is removed.

The transfer is positioned over a glass or transparent substrate which may have molded or etched grooves, or no grooves. A glass frit is sprayed and reflowed to seal the wires in position on the substrate. The terminal ends of the wire are stripped to provide electrical contact. A secondary emitter is applied and the panel assembled with conventional methods.
