DISCO Laser Saw Shipments Exceed 800

DISCO Corporation (Headquarters: Ota-ku, Tokyo; President: Kazuma Sekiya) announces that the cumulative shipments for laser saws reached 800 units in June 2013.

Since DISCO laser saws went on sale in 2002, shipments have remained strong even after the achievement of 200 units in January 2010. DISCO shipped more than 600 units during the period of June 2013 from January 2010. Currently, our laser saws have been delivered to more than 150 companies, including top 10 assembly companies and are being used widely throughout the world.

As background to this increased shipment pace, the laser processing technology of a wafer with Low-k film or an LED substrate wafer has been highly appreciated, and DISCO has devoted itself to this area of technology as a technical leader. In addition, our successful field support has a good reputation, by accelerating the development speed under a framework of more than 250 R&D, application and service engineers spread among our affiliate offices.
