Zumbotel Group from Austria and the Fraunhofer IPMS institute has agreed to create a new joint-venture for the development and production of OLED lighting modules. The new company will be called Ledon OLED Lighting. It will be based in Dresden, and will have 10-15 employees in the first year.
Ledon will not only produce OLED panels, but will also develop and manufacture complete OLED lighting solutions and concepts for large-scale OLED systems. Ledon will use the Fraunhofer's pilot line, to make OLED panels on 370x470 mm2 substrates with a cycle time of just three minutes.
Back in January 2009 we have interviewed Prof. karl Leo from the Fruanhofer IPMS, and he explains their technology and aims.
