Mycronic AB has received an order for a mask writer replacing an older system for manufacturing of display photomasks. The customer, based in Asia, has previously exchanged older systems through Mycronic's offering. The system is scheduled to be delivered during the first half of 2018.
Mycronic has now received eight 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 today are 10 or more years old. Maintaining these systems is increasingly a challenge. Some of Mycronic's customers also need to modernize their production equipment. Mycronic offers a scalable system in exchange for an older system.
"Our replacement offering provides the customer a long term and secure service solution while at the same time allows them to increase productivity. That is why our customers continue the exchange of older systems," says Magnus Råberg, Sr VP & General Manager Pattern Generators at Mycronic AB.
