Electroluminescence driving innovations in print
Hasselt University picks KBA as technology partner for Lumoza
The new company specialises in largeformat screenprinted electronics for novel forms of advertising and luxury goods etc. Potential applications include waferthin, luminous animated billboards or DVD covers that display special light effects in the dark. The effects, which are created by dielectric barrier layers between the individually applied inks, open up new perspectives in product marketing and presentation for both indoor and outdoor advertising and the packaging industry. Not only that, they support a totally new genre of printed product.
The various players involved, among them professors at Hasselt University, had approached KBA at the early stages of Lumoza's gestation. Always keen to build on its prowess in packaging press technology and expand from print, its traditional power base, into new lines of business offering sound potential for growth, KBA seized the opportunity to join forces with the groundbreaking companies engaged in the Lumoza project. Their aim is to promote crossplatform research to create previously unimaginable products. Negotiations are already well advanced for a sheetfed offset press customengineered to meet Lumoza's specific needs.
