Microservice, Brazil, has decided to begin manufacturing Blu-ray discs as the first company to do so in South America. Mr. Isaac Hemsi, CEO of Microservice, states: “We are very proud that after being the first company in South America producing Optical Disc back in 1987, we will now be the first company in South America manufacturing Blu-ray discs (BD 50 and BD 25). As our goal is always to provide our customers with the best quality discs, we have chosen to buy the well-established SINGULUS BLULINE II for Blu-ray disc production to bring this plan into action.”

SINGULUS, with over 60 Blu-ray production systems at customer sites worldwide, has become the global market leader. The SINGULUS Blu-ray disc production system BLULINE II is designed for the economical production of Blu-ray Discs (BD ROM 50 and BD ROM 25), according to the specifications issued by the BDA.

All production steps from molding, cooling, metallizing, wet-embossing, lacquering and UV curing to quality inspection are incorporated in the BLULINE II. Its functionality, speed and design again set a new benchmark for the industry.

Background and Statement Microservice, Brazil
With 40 years of operation and 9 business areas, Microservice is an innovative company that continually invests in technology and specialization in the segments in which it operates.

With more than 1,000 employees, two Industrial Plants in São Paulo and Manaus, Microservice inaugurated the first Optical Disc factory in the Southern Hemisphere in 1987, when there were very few factories in the world. In 2007, they were the first company in Brazil to receive CDSA certification, awarded to companies that maintain programs for the prevention of piracy throughout their entire chain, from production to delivery.

Microservice believes in long term partnerships with the international brand names that they represent, their customers and their employees, since only through them can they meet their delivery commitments for complete and outstanding solutions to the market.

In 2008, SINGULUS unveiled its new BLULINE II system for the production of 50 Gigabyte dual layer Blu-Ray Discs and has since supplied a total of more than 60 systems for Blu-ray production lines.

SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES AG will be concentrating on the Optical Disc and Solar segments in the future. SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES, the world leader in manufacturing mass production equipment for Optical Discs CD/DVD/Blu-ray, has joined with STANGL to focus on the photovoltaic market.

While STANGL specializes in wet-chemical processes, SINGULUS’ core competence is vacuum coating technology. SINGULUS’ extensive know-how is the optimal base for development of highly profitable, fully-automated production lines.

With this acquisition, SINGULUS has successfully entered the solar equipment market. The new business area Solar will be expanded in the next couple of years.
