    Abstract: Methods for modifying contours of substrate surfaces are disclosed. Methods include depositing filler material on a critical mating surface of a substrate so as to render the mating surface more mateable with a matching substrate. The filler material can be deposited within or around features or defects on the mating surface such that a final desired surface contour is achieved. In some cases, the final surface contour of the mating surface is planar. This can prevent gaps associated with the features or defects from forming between the substrate and the matching substrate when they are joined together. The final surface contour of the mating surface can be determined by comparing dimensions of the mating surface to dimensions of a reference surface. In some cases, ink jet printing techniques are used to deposit the filler material accurately in prescribed locations and with precise thickness control.

  • Patent number: 10310312
    Abstract: An object is to provide a display apparatus capable of suppressing damage to flexible printed boards. Each flexible printed board (31) is bent so as to be farther from a bezel (21) and thereby protected totally in a peripheral edge direction of a display panel (11). Therefore, contact between the flexible printed board (31) and the bezel (21) can be suppressed. This makes it possible to suppress displacement or twist or the like of the flexible printed board (31) due to contact with the bezel (21). Thus, damage to the flexible printed board (31) attributable to contact between the flexible printed board (31) and the bezel (21) can be suppressed.
