Notion Systems, MBraun and the Fraunhofer IAP develop a novel display industrial production process based on inkjet printing

Notion Systems, MBraun and the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research (Fraunhofer IAP) are co-developing new inkjet production technologies, aimed for the display market - specifically for OLED, QD and microdisplays.

The three partners are combining their respective competencies to present themselves together as a partnership supplier off all-in-one solutions. The Fraunhofer IAP is developing custom-made processes for display manufacturing with tailor-made inks. To achieve an industrial-scale best-in-class process solution, the parties are looking into all major pre-and post-processing steps, the substrate and the production equipment such as the inkjet print head.

The production process in this project is built around Notion Systems' n.jet display series, which prints functional layers in various steps of display production for a number of display technologies, including rigid, flexible, OLED, QLED and microdisplays. Together with its partner MBraun, Notion offers a fully integrated solution that combines compact design with minimized nitrogen consumption, in an inert and clean atmosphere.
