Visionox set to start mass producing AMOLED panels in Q2 2015

In August 2013 Visionox started constructing their Gen-5.5 AMOLED production line, and according to the company, they are set to start mass producing AMOLED panels in Q2 2015 (i.e. by June 2015). This line will produce 4,000 substrates each month at first and once yields stabilize it will reach its full capacity of 15,000 monthly substrates.

When this happens, Visionox will become the world's second largest AMOLED producer after SDC (which currently produces 140,000 monthly Gen-5.5 substrates). China's EverDisplay also has a monthly capacity of 15,000 substrates, but its production line is smaller (Gen-4.5). The fourth AMOLED producer, Taiwan's AU Optronics, also has a Gen-4.5 line but production volume is unclear at the moment.

Visionox flexible AMOLED prototypes (2015)

Visionox also updated on their flexible OLED development. The company developed three flexible OLED prototypes. The largest one is a 7.6" 800x480 display. The flexible OLED thickness is about 20 um, with a bending radius of 3 mm. Visionox's flexible OLEDs use a polyimide substrate and an LTPS backplane (similar to both LGD's and SDC's flexible OLEDs).
