Yeolight Breaks Ground on 4.5 Generation OLED Lighting Manufacturing Facility
On May 20, China-based OLED lighting manufacturer Yeolight broke ground on their new 4.5 generation OLED manufacturing facility in Huaibei City, China. The “4.5th Generation Organic Light-Emitting Device (OLED) Industrialization project” is expected to finish construction and begin operation sometime in 2023. Yeolight provides the OLED lighting panels that come standard in the Hongqi H9, and their new fab will allow them to keep “redefining the world of light with technological innovation”.

At 10:18 a.m. on May 20, 2022, with the slow start of the two pile drivers, Yiguang Technology’s “4.5th generation organic light-emitting device (OLED) industrialization” project officially entered the pile driver stage, and the entire project went smoothly. The sequence progresses rapidly.
Huaibei Yiguang Construction Site Yiguang Technology’s “4.5th Generation Organic Light-Emitting Device (OLED) Industrialization” project is located in Xiangshan Economic Development Zone, Huaibei City, Anhui Province. The construction period is 2 years, and it will be completed and put into operation in 2023.
Driven by the “new four modernizations” of electrified, intelligent, networked, and shared vehicles, the automotive industry is increasingly pursuing new technologies. Advantages, in today’s intelligent development of automotive lighting, stand out in many technical routes. In addition to the advantages of light and thin, uniform lighting, soft lighting, low heat generation, and no glare, OLED light sources also have the characteristics of transparency, flexibility and displayability.
These advantages can easily realize flexible and changeable lamp shapes and make the lamps more fashionable. It enriches the design connotation of the car, improves the recognition of the car brand, and is favored by many car OEMs. Audi, as the “light factory” in the automotive industry, first started the application of OLED car light products, and then Mercedes-Benz, BMW and many other brands also began to actively deploy their own OLED technology.
For domestic brands, Hongqi H9 is a domestic high-end model that benchmarks against BBA’s first-tier luxury brands. It also comes standard with OLED taillights (provided exclusively by Yiguang Technology).
Yiguang Technology has been deeply involved in OLED technology for many years, and has been committed to the application development and research of OLED technology in the field of lighting.
