Visionox plans to build an 8.6-generation OLED production line in Chengdu or Shenzhen

After BOE, Visionox is also considering investing in OLED production lines in the IT field. Visionox plans to invest in IT OLED lines with a double-stacked tandem structure, and the candidate area for Gen 8.6 lines is in Chengdu or Shenzhen. It is said that Visionox has asked domestic and foreign equipment manufacturers to review the equipment required to produce 8th-generation OLEDs for IT.

According to industry news on the 11th, Visionox is considering the development of organic light-emitting diode (OLED) technology for IT products such as tablet computers and notebook computers. The lifespan of these IT products is around 5 years, which is longer than the 2-3 year replacement cycle for smartphones. For such products, it is advantageous to adopt a "double-stacked series" structure, but Korean media believe that Visionox's technical strength is insufficient and its financial situation is not good, so an investment review for the purpose of subsidizing local governments is a normal statement.

It is said that Visionox's 6th generation (1500x1850mm) is a half-cut vertical deposition, and the 8.6th generation (2250x2600mm) is considered half-cut deposition technology. This year, the 6th generation line will be installed in the Hefei V3 line, and the 8.6th generation line candidate area will be in Chengdu or Shenzhen. Visionox has now asked domestic and foreign equipment manufacturers to review the equipment concepts required to produce 8th-generation OLEDs for IT.

The industry expects that Visionox plans to first mass-produce or verify IT-oriented OLED technology in the 6th generation line, and then move to the 8.6th generation technology. Samsung Display, LG Display, and China BOE all plan to first mass-produce the 6th generation line of IT products OLED, and will respond to the 8th generation line in the future, because there is no 8th generation line yet.

It is said that the 6th generation line is currently mainly producing 6-inch smartphone OLED panels, but the production of 10 to 20-inch tablet/notebook OLEDs in the 8th generation line has an advantage in terms of cost. Korean media pointed out that in the domestic industry, Visionox's observation of low actual investment in IT OLED dominates. Samsung Display, LG Display, and BOE all have major OLED customers, but Visionox has less output and no major customers.
