Samsung Display said on Sunday that it has begun installation of equipment in its latest Gen 8.6 OLED production line to be set up at its Asan plant in South Korea.

The new A6 line will be built by converting its existing L8 line, which manufactured liquid crystal display (LCD) panels, and start production in 2026, the South Korean display panel maker said.

Gen 8.6 (2290mm x 2620) OLED lines are aimed at manufacturing OLED panels for IT products besides smartphones, such as tablets and PCs.

Samsung Display said it has finished the construction of the cleanroom of the line and will install major equipment in the line within the year.

The company said last year in April that it will spend 4.1 trillion won up to 2026 in Gen 8 OLED production lines to secure an annual production capacity of 10 million units of OLED panels aimed at notebooks.

The A6 line will produce OLED panels made with a two-stack tandem structure, or a panel that has two light emission layers, and apply encapsulation techniques to glass substrates.

Having two emission layers increases the life span and brightness of the panel, while encapsulation is usually done on plastic substrates, applying them to glass substrates can make rigid OLED panels thinner.

Samsung Display began manufacturing OLED panels for IT products in 2019 by using its existing Gen 5.5 OLED line, or A2, which manufactures rigid OLED panels used in notebooks.
