Mycronic Receives Order for Mask Writer


Reading time ( words)

Mycronic AB, has received an order for a maskwriter replacing an older system for manufacturing of display photomasks from a customer in Asia. It is estimated that the system will be delivered during the third quarter of 2016.

Mycronic offers mask writers for the manufacturing of photomasks within different fields of application. These areas are display manufacturing (for TV, smart phones and tablets among other things) and applications within the multi-purpose market, a broad segment comprising many different application areas.

Ever since the mid 1990s, Mycronic has been delivering mask writers for production of photomasks that are necessary in the manufacturing process for all flat screen displays. Mycronic occupies a unique position as the only supplier in the world of equipment for manufacturing of advanced photomasks. Since the year 2000, Mycronic has delivered approximately 65 mask writers for display applications. A little more than half of these are 10 or more years old. Maintaining these systems is increasingly a challenge. Some of Mycronic's customers with older mask writers also need to modernize their production equipment.

To offer customers a wider choice, Mycronic has established a replacement strategy to address the needs described above. Mycronic offers a scalable system, built on the Prexision platform, in exchange for an older system. This offering allows customers to increase productivity. At the same time a long-term service solution is secured for the customer.

”This is the second order for a mask writer to be delivered in exchange for one of the customer´s older systems. The mask writer is scalable, which provides the customer with the possibility to further upgrade the mask writer later on,” says Magnus Råberg, Senior VP & General Manager for business area PG at Mycronic AB.

“The order confirms that our replacement offering addresses several of the challenges that our customers are facing.”

The price level for a replacement mask writer built on the Prexision platform is normally in the range of USD 12–16 million depending on the configuration and type of machine traded in.

Preparing the Next-gen Tech Workforce

Knowledge transfer, especially from the “graying-out” experienced technical workers in our industry, is a complex, difficult family of problems. It differs wildly between companies, and even within divisions of the same company. One of the biggest barriers is the full manufacturing schedules in North American electronics companies that don’t leave any slack time—and the 40-hour work week is a complete fantasy for many.

Finding Solutions in the Quoting Process

05/03/2022 | Duane Benson, Screaming Circuits
It’s easy to frame all our supply chain woes around the COVID-19 pandemic. However, at Screaming Circuits, we started receiving dire warnings about component shortages in early 2018. At that time, we were told that the supply upheaval could last years and that we should expect it to get much worse before it got better. Now, four years later, I would say those warnings nailed it.
