Reading time ( words)

Mycronic has secured an order for three mask writers from an existing customer in Asia. The order consists of one Prexision-8, whose functionality has been limited to the manufacture of photomasks up to generation 6, as well as one FPS8100 and one FPS6100. The order has been booked in the fourth quarter and is valued at between US $30–35 million. Delivery of the Prexision system is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2019 and the two FPS systems for the second quarter of 2020.

Mycronic's Business Area Pattern Generators provides mask writers for manufacturing photomasks in several fields of application. These mainly consist of display manufacturing (TV, smartphones and tablets) and applications in the multi-purpose market, a broad segment that includes such applications as electronic packaging, microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) and touchscreen functions.

"We are pleased to secure another order from this customer. This order clearly demonstrates that the FPS series is well established as the most advanced mask writer in the multi-purpose segment. At the same time, the order further confirms the display industry's need for photomask area," says Charlott Samuelsson, Senior VP Pattern Generators at Mycronic.

Synergy Between Smart Manufacturing and the Secure Supply Chain (Part 2)

06/05/2019 | Michael Ford, Aegis Software Corp.
With the trend of shortening lead-times within the material ordering process, and the frequency with which urgent orders for materials from the grey market are made, there is increased opportunity for the ingress of counterfeit materials. The situation is made far worse when a genuine shortage of materials in the supply chain occurs. The consequences of not being able to eliminate the risk of defects getting through into the market will be disastrous for individuals as well as for the company brand image, not to mention the associated costs of recovery. It is only a matter of time, unless something very significant changes.
