Reading time ( words)

Mycronic has received an order from a customer in Asia for an SLX and a Prexision Lite 8 Evo mask writer, which will replace one of the customer’s older systems. The order has a total value of between USD 12–14 million. Delivery of the SLX system is scheduled for the second quarter of 2021, while delivery of the Prexision Lite 8 Evo system is scheduled for the third quarter of the same year.

The SLX laser mask writer was launched in October 2019 to meet rising demand for photomasks for the semiconductor industry, which is driven by long-term trends, and to meet the future need for replacement and modernization. The SLX mask writer is based on the new Evo control platform, which is shared by all of Mycronic’s new mask writers.

Prexision Lite 8 Evo, which was launched in 2019, is designed to meet demands for cost-effective photomask production of less advanced displays up to G8 mask size. The order for the Prexision Lite 8 Evo mask writer is to replace one of the customer’s older systems.

“It is gratifying that we are continuing to broaden cooperation with our existing customers. The combined order of a Prexision Lite 8 Evo, to replace an older system, and a SLX mask writer reaffirmed that our new products fulfill customer needs and that our product roadmap is in line with the needs of the display  and semiconductor industry,” says Charlott Samuelsson, Sr VP Pattern Generators at Mycronic.

Driving Down Cost in the Supply Chain

Driving cost out of the supply chain goes beyond reduction of raw material cost. Though many of the manufacturers today concentrate on negotiation with their raw material supplier(s) the hidden cost of internal supply chain goes undetected. To address the cost of the entire supply chain we should not only look at direct material cost but also the cost of internal supply chain. At Epoch we looked at four areas in particular which include: planning/tracking, storage/delivery, inventory management, and supplier relationships.

5 Keys to Smart Process Success

01/28/2021 | Steve Williams, The Right Approach Consulting LLC
Smart factories require the core underlying processes to be connected and “talking” to generate the data necessary to make real-time process decisions, that is, the IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things). In a truly connected factory, an ongoing continuous dialog between machines, business processes, suppliers and customers is happening in the background. This dialog is not only interactive, but proactive, as a constant stream of real-time data is tweaking and adjusting processes to drive improvement. It also provides time-critical information on how processes are operating, supply chain pipeline, and delivery status updates—all based on data.
