ImprioYamagata Fujitsu has purchased Molecular Imprints newly introduced Imprio(R) HD2200 imprint lithography tool for hard disk drive (HDD) development work. The tool supplier said that this was the ninth Imprio system sold to the HDD industry in total, and the seventh sold to the HDD industry within the past 12 months.

"With the Imprio HD2200, the disk drive industry for the first time has a nanopatterning system capable of patterned media advanced development and pilot production," said Paul Hofemann, vice president of marketing and business development for hard disk drives and emerging markets at Molecular Imprints.  "This is our second-generation nanopatterning system for the HDD market, and it is demonstrating our ability to extend our core Step and Flash(R) Imprint Lithography technology to enable our customers to continue meeting their patterned media roadmaps.  Its adoption by manufacturing leaders, like Yamagata Fujitsu, further validates our S-FIL technology as being uniquely suited to meeting their performance and cost-of-ownership challenges."

The Imprio HD2200 is specifically designed for the HDD market that the company claims delivers a high throughput of double-sided disks and superior precision pattern fidelity with a low cost of ownership.
