Mycronic AB has received an order for two SLX systems from a new customer in Asia. The order value is in the range of USD 7-10 million. Delivery of both systems is planned for the second quarter of 2022.
The SLX laser mask writer meets rising demand for photomasks for the semiconductor industry and a future need for replacement and modernization. Photomasks manufactured by laser mask writers are of high importance and account for 70-75 percent of all photomasks produced for semiconductor manufacturing. SLX is a new and modern mask writer based on the same technology as Mycronic’s mask writers for displays.
“It is extra gratifying to be entrusted to deliver two SLX systems and in addition to a new customer. The order further underlines that the SLX system’s performance, productivity and reliability makes it cost effective for customers producing photomasks to the rapidly growing semiconductor industry,” says Charlott Samuelsson, Sr VP Pattern Generators at Mycronic.
Mycronic provides mask writers for manufacturing photomasks in several fields of application. These include display manufacturing (TVs, smartphones and tablets), production of semiconductors and applications in the multi-purpose market, a broad segment that comprises many different areas of application.
