Kent Displays triples flexible LCD production capacity with second R2R line

March 1, 2012 — Kent Displays is installing its second roll-to-roll (R2R) production line at its Kent, OH headquarters, manufacturing Reflex No Power flexible liquid crystal displays (LCDs). The additional capacity will build LCDs for Boogie Board eWriters sold by Kent’s consumer products subsidiary, Improv Electronics.

The new R2R LCD production line is expected to ramp to full operation in H2 2012, tripling Kent Displays’ production capacity for flexible Reflex LCDs. It joins a roll-to-roll line installed in late 2008, which makes flexible LCDs for eWriters, electronics skins and eCards.

Once Kent Displays introduced the Boogie Board eWriter model in early 2010, global demand ramped, and the company introduced several new models and accessories with additional functionalities. The added demand caused Kent Displays to invest in the second R2R line, which will also increase efficieny in Boogie Board eWriter production. The company secured funding for the new production line from a combination of sources.

Kent Displays Inc. researches, develops and manufactures Reflex No Power LCDs for multiple applications. For more information about Kent Displays, go to
