TOKYO -- Japanese manufacturers Toray Industries and Shin-Etsu Chemical have developed a way to drive down the cost of mass-producing next-generation microLED displays.

Toray will introduce a device this month that reduces key manufacturing processes up to 16%. Codeveloped with Shin-Etsu, the device shortens the time needed to affix light-emitting diodes (LEDs) onto substrates.
