Abstract

In these days a large amount of cost has been invested for the development of the Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) panel, and new technology has been created. One great issue is how to assemble the LCD panel. It is an important issue of how to and what to assemble in order to produce a high reliability, high-quality, and low-cost LCD. This disclosure provides the solution for these assembling issues.

Cell Support Assembly without Screw

      In these days a large amount of cost has been invested for the
development of the Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) panel, and new
technology has been created.  One great issue is how to assemble the
LCD panel.  It is an important issue of how to and what to assemble
in order to produce a high reliability, high-quality, and low-cost
LCD.  This disclosure provides the solution for these assembling
issues.

      In conventional technology, we have assembled the cell to
recess the mold or tie it by screws within the bezel and frame.  This
method tends to break the screw hole and take many hours to assemble.

      The new disclosed method (Figure) can change assembly to one
action, which is to put the cell on a frame and connect it with a
bezel by ratchet.  Therefore, assembly is changed very easily and
reassembly can be done easily by releasing the ratchet.  This method
can produce high reliability, high quality, and savings on the total
cost.  A cell, a frame, a bezel, and a silicon rubber are used in
this method.
