JOLED was founded in January 2015, combining the OLED display development divisions of Sony Corporation and Panasonic Corporation, with the goal of accelerating mass production development and commercialization of OLED displays.
JOLED Nomi Site, with a monthly production capability of approximately 20,000 glass substrates of size G5.5 (1300×1500mm), is planned to become JOLED’s main production site. It will be producing mid-size (10- to 32-inch) printed OLED displays for use in areas such as automotive displays and high-end monitors.
JOLED has been pursuing the research and development of printed OLED as well as establishing technology for their mass production ever since being founded in 2015. A pilot line (substrate size: G4.5 [730×920mm]) was opened at Ishikawa Technology Development Center in 2016. Currently, 21.6-inch 4K high-resolution OLED displays produced at this pilot line are being shipped for use in medical and high-end monitors.
The JOLED Nomi Site will be established in the location of the previous Japan Display’s Nomi Plant acquired from Innovation Network Corporation of Japan. JOLED is using its R&D capability for achieving the commercialization of OLED displays produced using the RGB printing method.
