Heptagon Corporation selects Heidelberg Instruments advanced Gray Scale Lithography System for Production of Micro Optics
Heidelberg, Germany, August 17, 2012: Heidelberg Instruments, a leader in design, development and production of maskless lithography systems, announced order for an advanced DWL 2000 system with sophisticated Gray Scale Exposure capability from Heptagon. System will be used for production of micro optical components for applications in smart phones, mobile devices, gaming consoles, telecoms equipment and supercomputers.
“Gray Scale lithography technology can produce complicated, random, and smoothly or discontinuously contoured material surfaces with a variety of applications in modern optical systems. We implemented Gray Scale lithography in our maskless lithography systems over 12 years ago and through the years have refined this technology in our commercial based systems.This order is a significant step to solidify our position as a global leader in production of direct write systems for applications in Gray Scale Lithography.” states Alexander Forozan, Head of Global Sales and Business Development, Heidelberg Instruments
