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 million and USD 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. Photomasks made by laser mask writers are very important in the manufacture of semiconductors and account for 70% to 75% of all photomasks produced. SLX is a new and modern mask writer based on the same technology as Micronics's mask writers for displays.
