For years, panel makers have been using MMG as a way to best utilize substrate efficiency by cutting two panel sizes on the same substrate. The basic principle is to gain the best economic cut per glass substrate while also achieving the highest production efficiency for the most popular sizes. For example, a Gen 8/Gen 8.5 substrate at 2200 × 2500 mm can be cut into 18 pieces of 32-inch, 8 pieces of 49-inch, or 6 pieces of 55-inch. Since 32-inch, 49-inch, and 55-inch are mainstream sizes in the TV market, they are also referred to as economic cuts or sizes.
