Mycronic receives order for three SLX mask writers
Mycronic AB has received an order for three SLX mask writers from an existing customer in Asia. The order value is in the range of USD 17-21 million. Two systems are planned for delivery during the fourth quarter of 2023, while the third 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 new and modern mask writer based on the same technology as Mycronic’s mask writers for displays.
“SLX’s modern and flexible platform is well suited to meet different customer needs, which in this case is manifested by a repeat SLX order from an existing customer. This time the order is for three systems in two different configurations”, says Charlott Samuelsson, Sr VP Pattern Generators at Mycronic.
Mycronic provides mask writers for display manufacturing and production of semiconductors.
