Tuesday, 27 April 2010 09:15 Pavel Beneš



Electroluminescence (EL) is one of the most skill demanding disciplines in the modern printed electronics industry. ELON Technologies has developed EL manufacturing over a 4 year period of pioneering research designed to achieve the best practical results in the advertising and media field.


ELON's unique EL printing technology has been recently upgraded through the use of quality swedish drivers system, known for its top-of-the-line electronics. The result of this union approaches ELON Technologies’ ultimate goal, the perfect EL poster. Working with the top US and EU electroluminescent ink providers, electro-technical engineers and chemical specialists, we have developed a great product with a reputation and an overall technical proficiency beyond anything currently available on the market.

ELON's animated lighting poster has been used with unparalleled results for such international brands such as Coca Cola, T-Mobile, Ford, Nespresso, Vodafone as well as many others. The technology is now ready for a major rollout to the printing market as a innovative production program, ideal for completing the product portfolio of screen printing houses, as well as giving new options to electro-technical engineers and supplying additional knowledge to companies involved in printed electronics.

The first seminar and workshop will be held in Prague, Czech Republic and starts on the 12th of July, 2010. The seminar lasts for 1 week (from 12th to 16th) and is oriented towards company management and sales managers. The participants will learn about the theory of EL, spheres of application and sales channels. The workshop follows on the next week and runs for 1 week as well (from 19th to 24th). The workshop is focused on printing techniques and will cover practical training for technical managers, screen printing and EL specialists.

Please note, we can accept only a limited number of participants (10 companies per term) in order to provide the optimal training environment from both the theoretical and practical side.
