May 11, with the first flexible AMOLED high resolution touch screen light, China's first 6-generation flexible AMOLED production line--BOE Chengdu 6th generation of flexible AMOLED production line formally put into operation.
BoE Chengdu 6th generation flexible AMOLED production line total investment 46.5 billion yuan, started in May 2015 construction, July 2016 main plant cap. Design capacity for a month of 48,000 pieces of glass substrate (glass substrate size for 1850mmx1500mm), positioning in high-end mobile display and emerging mobile display products.
The production line is applied to the world's most advanced evaporation process, the glass substrate cutting to one-second of the technology is difficult, is China's first use of the process of AMOLED production line. At the same time, the production line adopts low-temperature polycrystalline silicon (LTPS) plastic substrate to replace the traditional amorphous silicon (a-Si) glass substrate, the electron transfer rate is 100 times times higher, with quite good signal drive and system integration capability. The use of LTPS product screen resolution is higher, so that small-size products can also have 4K-level Ultra HD resolution. In addition, flexible packaging technology is used to achieve the display screen bending and folding, can be widely used in smart wear, mobile phones, tablets, on-board display, such as high-end mobile display and emerging mobile display products.
In addition to the 6th generation of flexible AMOLED production line in Chengdu, BOE in Mianyang, Sichuan Province in December 2016 to build a 6-generation flexible OLED production line, planning capacity for a month of 48,000 pieces of glass substrate (glass substrate size for 1850mmx1500mm), is expected to achieve production 2019.
BOE in OLED display field layout has been long. BOE invested in China's first, the world's second 5.5-generation LTPS/AMOLED production line--BOE Ordos 5.5 generation AMOLED production line has been put into production in 2013. At present, the production line has been used for well-known customers at home and abroad to provide smart phones and smart watches and other wearable products AMOLED high-resolution display.
As a new display development direction, AMOLED in high-end smart phones and wearable equipment, such as intelligent Terminal Market application prospects. According to group intelligence consulting data, from the mobile Terminal panel development, by 2020, flexible AMOLED in the entire AMOLED capacity accounted for up to 65%, 2017 and 2018 is the fastest growth of flexible AMOLED two years.
