The VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland has, for the first time, performed all manufacturing stages for a flexible in-moulded LED foil in a roll-to-roll process. The purpose of this demo is to prove the suitability of the technique for the highly cost-effective manufacture of products such as flexible LED displays containing printed electronics.
The cooperation between Coatema Coating Machinery (Dormagen, Germany) and temicon (Dortmund, Germany) has revealed a brand-new R2R-Nanoimprint line. The new line allows nanoimprinting of seamless structures on rolled products up to the width of 300mmfor various applications.
The Dutch, Belgian and German R&D partnership Solliance announces the demonstration of an industrially-applicable roll-to-roll process for the production of solar cells, achieving a record 12,6% conversion efficiency on cell level. This breakthrough result paves the way towards an accelerated market introduction of this attractive new source of renewable energy.
