Description

CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATIONS



[0001] The present disclosure based on and claims priority to Chinese Patent Application No. 201710464893.9, filed on June 19, 2017 and titled "FILM COATING APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR THE SAME", the entire contents thereof are incorporated herein by reference.

TECHNICAL FIELD



[0002] The present disclosure relates to the technical field of manufacturing a display device, and in particular, to a film coating apparatus and a film coating method.

BACKGROUND



[0003] The flexible touch display device has the advantages of thin, light, wide viewing angle, active illumination, flexible display, and simple and direct operation, and has been considered as a promising next-generation display technology.

[0004] In the related art, a substrate thin film is usually coated on a glass substrate by using a film coating apparatus, and then a touch structure layer is formed on the substrate thin film by using the glass substrate as a support. After the formation, the substrate thin film is separated from the glass substrate to obtain a flexible touch thin film.

[0005] The film coating apparatus generally includes a substrate adsorption device and an coating device located under the substrate adsorption device, wherein: the substrate adsorption device has a bearing surface facing towards the coating device, and the bearing surface has a first adsorption structure; the coating device includes a screen plate disposed opposite to the bearing surface, a negative pressure tank located under the screen plate, and a press roll disposed inside the negative pressure tank. Before the film coating, the substrate adsorption device adsorbs the glass substrate to the bearing surface, the glass substrate has a photoresist on a side thereof facing towards the screen plate, and the coating device adsorbs the substrate thin film on the screen plate; during the film coating, the press roll extrudes the screen plate and moves parallel to the bearing surface, so as to ensure the substrate thin film to closely adhere to the glass substrate by the photoresist

[0006] However, the related art has a drawback in that the press roll applies a certain amount of pressing and pulling against a thin film when coating the thin film, so that the thin film generates a tensile stress. In the subsequent process, the thin film tends to shrink along the direction that the press roll moves, which causes the glass substrate to warp, so that the thin film coated on the glass substrate is prone to the phenomenon such as abnormal vacuum absorption and abnormal flow, which seriously affects the product quality of the touch thin film.

SUMMARY



[0007] The embodiments of the present disclosure provides a film coating apparatus and a film coating method to improve the adhesion of the thin film to the substrate, and thereby to improve the product quality of the flexible touch thin film.

[0009] In the film coating apparatus provided by the embodiment of the present disclosure, before coating the thin film, the substrate fixing device fixes the substrate on the arched surface, and the substrate is slightly arched downwards; during the process of coating the thin film, the press roll presses the thin film towards the arched surface, and rolls at a side of the thin film away from the arched surface, so that a portion of the thin film opposite to the press roll is closely adhered to the substrate, and at which time the thin film generates a tensile stress; after the thin film is coated, the substrate returns to an original state, and the thin film generates a compressive stress which is offset by the tensile stress. Compared with the related art, the film coating apparatus improves the shrinkage of the thin film and the adhesion of the thin film to the substrate, thereby improving the product quality of the touch thin film.

The second adsorption structure relatively closely adsorbs and fixes the substrate on the arched surface, thereby reducing the wrinkling of the substrate, and improving the adhesion of the thin film to the substrate.

[0016] In one embodiment, the thin film bearing device further includes a first driving device connected to the press roll for driving the press roll to press the thin film against the arched surface and roll at a side of the thin film away from the arched surface.

[0017] In one embodiment, the substrate fixing device further includes a rotating shaft disposed at a side of the arched surface away from the thin film bearing device, the rotating shaft having a first rotational position for making the arched surface facing towards the thin film bearing device, and a second rotational position for making the arched surface facing away from the thin film bearing device.

[0033] In order to improve the adhesion of the thin film and the substrate, and further improve the product quality of the flexible touch thin film, embodiments of the present disclosure provide a film coating apparatus and a film coating method.

[0034] As shown in FIG. 1, an embodiment of the present disclosure provides a film coating apparatus including a substrate fixing device 1, a thin film bearing device 2 and a press roll 22, wherein:

the press roll 22 is located at a side of the thin film 4 away from the substrate fixing device 1, and when the press roll 22 presses the thin film 4 against the arched surface 11 and rolls at a side of the thin film 4 away from the arched surface 11, a portion of the thin film 4 opposite to the press roll 22 is coated to the substrate 3.



[0035] In the film coating apparatus provided by the embodiment of the present disclosure, before coating the thin film 4, the substrate fixing device 1 fixes the substrate 3 on the arched surface 11, and the substrate 3 is slightly drooped under the action of gravity. As seen from the broken line in Fig. 2, during the process of coating the thin film 4, the press roll 22 presses the thin film 4 against the arched surface 11 and rolls at a side of the thin film 4 away from the arched surface 11, so that a portion of the thin film 4 opposite to the press roll 22 is closely adhered to the substrate 3, and at which time the thin film 4 generates tensile stress, as shown in FIG. 3.

[0036] In the embodiment of the present disclosure, a convexity d of the arched surface 11 and a thickness a of the base substrate 3 satisfy: d≤2a. The convexity of the arched surface 11 takes a value within this range, and the warpage of the substrate 3 can be reduced, thereby improving the adhesion of the thin film 4 to the substrate 3.

When the press roll 22 presses the thin film 4 against the arched surface 11 via the screen plate 21 and rolls on the surface of the screen plate 21, a portion of the thin film 4 opposite to the press roll 22 is coated to the substrate 3. The thin film bearing device 2 fixes the thin film 4 on the screen plate 21, which can reduce the wrinkling of the thin film 4, thereby improving the adhesion of the thin film 4 to the substrate 3.

The second adsorption structure 13 relatively closely adsorbs and fixes the substrate 3 on the arched surface 11, thereby reducing the wrinkling of the substrate 3, and improving the adhesion of the thin film 4 to the substrate 3.

[0041] In the present embodiment, the thin film bearing device 2 further includes a first driving device connected to the press roll 22 for driving the press roll 22 to press the thin film 4 against the arched surface 11 and to roll at a side of the thin film 4 away from the arched surface 11.

The rotating shaft 12 has a first rotational position for making the arched surface 11 facing towards the thin film bearing device 2, and a second rotational position for making the arched surface 11 facing away from the thin film bearing device 2. The rotating shaft 12 rotates the substrate fixing device 1 to the first rotational position during fixing of the substrate 3; and the rotating shaft 12 rotates the substrate fixing device 1 to the second rotational position after the substrate 3 is fixed, so as to facilitate fixing of the substrate on the arched surface.

[0043] In this embodiment, the film coating apparatus further includes a control device connected to the first driving device for controlling the first driving device to drive the press roll 22 to press the thin film 4 against the arched surface 11 and roll at a side of the thin film 4 away from the arched surface 11 after the thin filming apparatus is activated, so that a portion of the first adsorption structure 23 opposite to the press roll 22 is separated from the thin film 4, and so that a portion of the thin film 4 opposite to the press roll 22 is closely adhered to the substrate 3. With the design of this structure, the control device drives the press roll 22 by controlling the first driving device to automatically coat the thin film 4.

[0044] In an embodiment, the film coating apparatus further includes a second driving device for driving the rotating shaft 12, and the second driving device is connected to the control device.

[0045] The control device is further connected to a first vacuuming device and a second vacuuming device, respectively, for controlling the first vacuuming device to vacuum the first adsorption structure 23 and controlling the second vacuuming device to vacuum the second adsorption structure 13 after the film coating device is activated.

step 101: fixing a substrate on an arched surface of a substrate fixing device;

step 102: placing a film on a bearing surface of a thin film bearing device;

step 103: controlling a press roll to press the thin film towards the arched surface and roll at a side of the thin film away from the arched surface, so that a portion of the thin film opposite to the press roll is coated to the substrate.



[0047] In the film coating method provided by the embodiment of the present disclosure, before coating the thin film 4, the substrate fixing device 1 absorbs and fixes the substrate 3 on the arched surface 11, and the substrate 3 is slightly arched downwards; during the process of coating the thin film 4, the press roll 22 presses the thin film 4 towards the arched surface 11, and rolls at a side of the thin film 4 away from the arched surface 11, so that a portion of the thin film 4 opposite to the press roll 22 is closely adhered to the substrate 3, and at which time the thin film 4 generates a tensile stress; after coating the thin film 4, the substrate 3 returns to an original state, and the thin film 4 produces a pressure stress which is offset by the tensile stress. Compared with the related art, the film coating method improves the shrinkage of the thin film 4 and the adhesion of the thin film 4 to the substrate 3, thereby improving the product quality of the touch thin film.
