Mycronic AB has received an order for an SLX mask writer from a new customer in Asia. The order value is in the range of USD 3-5 million. Delivery of the system 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 gratifying to initiate 2022 by announcing another SLX order, this time from a new customer. We see that our modern and flexible platform is well suited to meet different customer needs”, says Charlott Samuelsson, Sr VP Pattern Generators at Mycronic.
Mycronic provides mask writers for display manufacturing and production of semiconductors.
