Roadmap glass replacement Apple Watch 9
Our meticulous process for replacing only the broken glass of the Apple Watch 9 without damaging the original screen is as follows:
1. Screen heating
We carefully place your Apple Watch in our screen heating machine. This gently heats the glue between the broken glass and the OLED screen, without damaging the screen.
2. Remove broken glass
Once the glue is heated, our technician uses a thin metal wire to gently remove the cracked glass from the screen. This is a delicate procedure that requires experience and a steady hand.
3. Thoroughly clean the display
Before installing the new glass, we thoroughly inspect and clean the screen to remove any residue from the old adhesive or small glass fragments. Only a spotless surface guarantees that the new seal will adhere properly.
4. Precise alignment of new glass
The new glass for your Apple Watch 9 needs to be perfectly aligned before it can be laminated. We use digital tools to get the positioning down to the micrometre.
5. Laminating new glass
We place the new glass in our vacuum lamination machine. This applies just the right pressure and heat to permanently bond the new glass to your Apple Watch screen, without blisters or a cloudy finish.
6. Remove air bubbles
Despite the lamination machine, sometimes small air bubbles can still get trapped between the glass and the screen. Our debubbling machine removes these using light pressure and vibration. This leaves a completely even and smooth finish.
7. Testing for proper operation
Before we reassemble your Apple Watch, we thoroughly test the screen for proper function. We check:
- Brightness and colour rendering
- Touchscreen functionality and sensitivity
- Sharpness, resolution and pixel perfection
Only when all quality checks have been met will we repackage your Apple Watch for shipment or collection.
