Singulus delivers its first production machine for rewritable Blu-ray Discs

Leading optical disc manufacturing machine maker Singulus Technologies delivered the first production system for rewritable Blu-ray discs (BD-R/BD-RE) to Asia. The replication line - called BLULINE BD-R/BD-RE - is based on the proven components of the BLULINE II. SINGULUS had already delivered several modules for the production of rewritable Blu-ray discs to Asia in 2011.

Singulus expects the market for rewriteable Blu-ray discs to develop. For both the CD and DVD a market for rewritable CDs and DVDs developed approximately one to two years after the introduction of the formats, respectively. Therefore, the German manufacturer intends to deliver production machines with automated key processing steps for once-writable and rewritable Blu-ray discs to large Asian disc manufacturers. With this, the company objective is to take pole position in the market for these optical storage media at an early stage.

"With our production machine for 50 GB Blu-ray discs, we have currently attained the technologic leadership, which we intend to expand further," says Dr.-Ing. Stefan Rinck, CEO of Singulus. "On the basis of the double-digit market growth for Blu-ray discs, we now also expect an increasing demand for rewritable Blu-ray discs and therefore higher demand for our production systems."
