Mycronic Receives One More Order for a Replacement Mask Writer

Mar 30, 2016

Mycronic AB (publ), has received yet another order for a mask writer, built on the Prexision platform, replacing an older system for manufacturing of display photomasks. The system is scheduled to be delivered to a customer in Asia during the second quarter, 2017.

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 with many different application areas.

Mycronic occupies a unique position as the sole supplier in the world of equipment for manufacturing of advanced photomasks and has delivered approximately 70 mask writers for display applications. Approximately 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.

Mycronic offers a scalable system, built on the Prexision platform, in exchange for an older system. This allows customers to increase productivity, while at the same time securing a long term service solution.

One of Mycronic’s frequent customers has decided to exchange one of their older systems. With our offering, the customer gets a scalable mask writer for continued high productivity,” says Magnus Råberg, Senior VP & General Manager for business area PG at Mycronic AB. 

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 system traded in.

Mycronic headquarters is located in Täby, north of Stockholm and the Group has subsidiaries in China, France, Germany, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, the Netherlands, United Kingdom and the United States.
