|By:, SA News Editor

Citing a "technical breakthrough in roll-to-roll plating process," UniPixel (UNXL) says it has achieved roll-to-roll pilot production for its InTouch sensor film.

The company claims it now has "a fully-functional, roll-to-roll pilot production line comprised of a plating line at the company's Texas facility, and printing, final testing and packaging at the Kodak (KODK) facility" in Rochester, NY.

UniPixel will now focus on improving manufacturing yields. Its announcement coincides with an operational update CC (webcast).

With 40% of the float shorted as of June 13, a short squeeze is quite possible tomorrow.
