STOCKHOLM, Dec. 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Mycronic AB (publ) has received an order for SLX mask writers from an existing customer in the US. The order consists of two SLX mask writers and the total order value is between USD 12 and 16 million. Delivery of the first system is planned for the first quarter of 2022, while delivery of the second system is planned for the third quarter of the same year.
The SLX laser mask writer was launched at the end of October 2019 to meet rising demand for photomasks for the semiconductor industry, which is driven by long-term trends, and to meet the future need for replacement and modernization.
