Plastic Logic and PrintLess Plans Collaborate on New Display for the AEC Industry PR Newswire CAMBRIDGE, England, November 19, 2013 CAMBRIDGE, England, November 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Plastic Logic, the flexible display technology company, has entered into a development partnership with PrintLess Plans to produce the Zephyr E-portfolio, a touch-sensitive display for plans for on-site use by the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry. (Photo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20131119/654043 ) Plastic Logic and PrintLess Plans have worked together to develop a medium format flexible display for use on-and-off site by the AEC industry. PrintLess Plans selected Plastic Logic's display technology as the best suited to the application. A working prototype will be shown at GreenBuild International Conference and Expo, Philadelphia, November 20 ^th - 22 ^nd . Previous attempts to replace hard copy plans on construction sites have largely failed due to the challenges of making a sufficiently large display which is robust, lightweight, low power and can be folded or rolled up. Plastic Logic's electrophoretic display (EPD) meets these criteria. The technology is unbreakable, flexible, daylight-readable, lightweight and only uses power to update the image. The EPD offering combines Plastic Logic's unique flexible OTFT backplane with technology from E ink™, the market leader for flexible EPD materials. The project timescales have been aggressive, but commenting on this, Indro Mukerjee , CEO Plastic Logic, stated: 'With our experience, fast prototyping and agile manufacturing capabilities, we are able to make such ideas become reality.' Indro added: 'Plastic Logic and PrintLess Plans are looking forward to demonstrating the future of the on-site plan display to the 30,000 attendees at GreenBuild.' The global construction industry is forecast to grow by 70% from US$7.9trillion to US$15trillion by 2020 (Vertical Edge Ltd.) and traditional plan printing, document management and circulation accounts for up to 10% of the value of a construction project. About Plastic Logic Plastic Logic is the recognised leader in organic thin-film transistors (OTFT) and is at the forefront of research and investment in plastic electronics. The company has industrialised the process and now manufactures a range of high-quality flexible plastic displays. These shatterproof daylight readable displays are ultra-thin, ultra-lightweight and very low power, offering huge advantages over conventional screens as they are extremely flexible with proven lifetimes. Flexible displays enable revolutionary design possibilities and are set to transform existing markets, such as signage, wristwatches and other wearable devices, and automotive as well as many others. Plastic Logic is backed by major investors including Oak Investment Partners and Rusnano.
