> Trumpf acquired 85% of Access Laser, producer of low power CO2 lasers for EUV lithography

USA, Washington: Trumpf acquires majority stake in U.S. laser manufacturer

 

Trumpf acquired 85% of Access Laser Co. Headquartered near Seattle – in Everett, Washington – the company produces high-precision, low-power CO2 lasers that are notably used to fabricate microchips in EUV lithography.

In this application, the light generated by the low-power CO2 laser serves as a beam source that is deployed together with Trumpf laser amplifiers in EUV systems. With this acquisition, Trumpf has successfully integrated a key player in the supply chain for EUV technology.
