Mycronic AB has received an order for two SLX mask writers from an existing customer in Asia. The order value is in the range of USD 10-12 million. Delivery of the first system is planned for the fourth quarter of 2023, while the second system is planned for delivery during the first quarter of 2024.
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 modern and energy efficient mask writer based on the same technology as Mycronic’s mask writers for displays.
“We are happy to receive another order from an existing customer who already has the SLX in production. This time the order is for two SLX mask writers and constituters further evidence that the SLX is performing well in a production environment”, says Charlott Samuelsson, Sr VP Pattern Generators at Mycronic.
Mycronic’s Pattern Generators division provides mask writers for display manufacturing and production of semiconductors.
