Mycronic AB has received yet another order for a mask writer, replacing an older system for manufacturing of display photomasks. The system is scheduled to be delivered to a customer in Asia during the first half of 2018.
With this order, Mycronic has received seven orders since the introduction of the replacement offering. The price level for a replacement mask writer built on the Prexision platform is normally in the range of $12–16 million depending on the configuration and type of system traded in.
Mycronic occupies a unique position as the sole supplier in the world of equipment for manufacturing of advanced photomasks. Many systems are today 10 or more years old. Maintaining these systems is increasingly a challenge. Some of Mycronic's customers with older mask writers also need to modernize their production equipment. Mycronic offers a scalable system, built on the Prexision platform, in exchange for an older system. This allows customers to increase productivity, while at the same time securing a long term service solution.
"Our customers continue the exchange of older systems. Our offering allows the customer to increase productivity, while at the same time securing a long term service solution," says Magnus Råberg, Sr VP & General Manager Pattern Generators at Mycronic AB.
