Mycronic AB has received an order for a Prexision 8 Evo and an FPS 6100 from an existing customer in Asia. The order value is in the range of USD 25-28 million. Delivery of the Prexision 8 Evo is planned for the fourth quarter of 2023, while the FPS 6100 is delivered during the second quarter of 2023.
Prexision 8 Evo meets the market’s requirements regarding complex patterns for display photomasks. FPS 6100 is a mask writer producing photomasks for various application areas, including electronic packaging, touch-screens and MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems).
“This order for a Prexision 8 Evo points to the display industry’s continued need for photomask capacity. The FPS 6100, which is a used demo system, supports a wide range of applications requiring less critical photomasks”, says Charlott Samuelsson, Sr VP Pattern Generators at Mycronic.
Mycronic’s Pattern Generators division provides mask writers for display manufacturing and production of semiconductors.
