Joining forces to demonstrate printed electronics
The Demo Line shows the practical application of printed electronics. A real product is produced live in front of the visitors’ own eyes, giving them the opportunity to really grasp printed electronics.
Are you interested in manufacturing processes of organic and printed electronics and would like to see equipment in operation? The LOPEC Demo Line gives you the perfect opportunity. On March 29 and 30, the entire value chain for printing electrochromic displays will be set up—in a trade fair environment.
Electrochromic displays have the unique characteristics of organic and printed electronics: thin, lightweight, flexible, and robust. They can be integrated directly into various applications, making the technology very promising for many industries. Electrochromic patterns, lines, and dots can be used as low-power displays for medical and healthcare, for example. Their low power consumption makes them also ideal for the packaging industry.
More than a dozen OE-A members are collaborating in the LOPEC Demo Line to create this unique project. It is coordinated by the Fraunhofer Institute for Electronic Nano Systems ENAS, with material, technological and design support from Ynvisible.
The following companies are participating in the 2017 production line:
adphos Digital Printing, Coatema Coating Machinery, DuPont Teijin Films, Exakt Advanced Technologies, Fujifilm Dimatix, Genes'Ink, GT+W, Heraeus Deutschland, KelennTechnology, NovaCentrix, Polytec/Xenon, Schoeller Technocell, Thieme, and Ynvisible.
These companies—representing the entire value chain—come together to join efforts in further developing emerging technologies as well as producing innovative products.
The electrochromic displays produced by the LOPEC Demo Line partners work e.g. with different printed battery types as well as a coin cell.

Guided tours will be offered on the exhibition days March 29 and 30 at 09:30 (English), 12:00 (German) and 14:00 (English). Interested visitors should gather at the Demo Line Meeting Point. Registration is not required.
