Micronic’s new FPS5100 System gaining acceptance for advanced electronic packaging applications
TABY, Sweden – November 30, 2006 – Micronic Laser Systems AB (Stockholm Exchange, Nordic list, Mid cap, Information technology: MICR), a leading global supplier of laser pattern generators for photomasks, announced today that one of its Asian customers has ordered the company’s newest tool, the FPS5100 laser pattern generator for advanced electronic packaging applications.
“This order demonstrates that Micronic accurately anticipated the market’s need for this new system,” said Sven Lofquist, president and CEO of Micronic. “Since its introduction earlier this year, the FPS5100 is rapidly achieving recognition for its very high productivity and flexibility for multiple uses.”
The FPS5100 was introduced in June 2006. While enabling high-volume production of photomasks for advanced electronic packaging, passive matrix TN/STN LCDs and other large-area applications, the FPS5100 provides shorter turn-around times, easier production planning and the lowest cost of ownership in its application space. The system features a very high throughput up to 12,000 mm2/min and a main writing grid down to 0.4 microns.
