Mycronic AB (publ) has received an order for an SLX system from a new customer in Asia. The order value is in the range of USD 4-6 million. Delivery of the system is planned for the third 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.
“The SLX system’s modern design, performance, productivity and reliability provides an attractive solution for customers producing photomasks to the semiconductor industry. This is highlighted when we are entrusted to deliver SLX to a new customer,” says Charlott Samuelsson, Sr VP Pattern Generators at Mycronic.
Mycronic provides mask writers for manufacturing photomasks in several fields of application. These include display manufacturing (TVs, smartphones and tablets), production of semiconductors and applications in the multi-purpose market, a broad segment that comprises many different areas of application.
