The four SQM systems will be installed in manufacturing plants in Europe, the United States and Asia, with one system already fully operational at Elsaesser, GmbH, in Horb, near Stuttgart, Germany. Elsaesser is a leading independent stamper-producing manufacturer. Synchronicity Mastering Services in Salt Lake City, Utah, an independent mastering service, has also ordered the SQM high output mastering system for its expansion plans in the United States. With the SQM, M2 can now supply complete manufacturing systems and equipment for the entire production process, from mastering to finished CD and DVD discs, as well as production of current and future generations of optical media. The SQM, together with the SQ200 and M2's own molding technology, makes M2 Engineering AB of Stockholm, Sweden, the total solutions provider of optical disc production. The SQM, a "new generation" of photo-resist glass mastering systems, combines the level of precision and sophistication of a high-end mastering system with the reliability of a high-output optical disc replication line. It has been designed specifically for the volume production of high quality CD and DVD masters. The system features many new innovations, including a completely new laser beam recorder concept that provides the level of precision required for consistent high quality mastering of the current CD and DVD formats and the next generation of high density optical media.
