The Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP in Dresden, Germany, as one of the leading partners for research and development for surface technologies and organic electronics and Swiss-based Sefar AG, a leading manufacturer of precision fabrics from monofilaments, developed a roll-to-roll processed large area flexible OLED during a joint project.
With support from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), technology development partners Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP (Dresden, Germany), SCHOTT AG (Mainz, Germany), VON ARDENNE GmbH (Dresden, Germany) and tesa SE (Norderstedt, Germany) have been developing new applications for ultra-thin glass on roll since 2013 in the research consortium KONFEKT.
The Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP, which is based in Dresden, Germany, and the machinery company VON ARDENNE, also based in Dresden, will intensify their cooperation in the field of the coating of flexible glass. Due to its properties, this new material is ideally suited as a substrate for various applications in flexible electronics. Since October 2016, the two partners have been operating the roll-to-roll coating system FOSA LabX 330 Glass together.
