Novel Coronavirus

 Fourth Report: Production status of DISCO product

February 13, 2020 6:50p.m.

In response to the spread of the novel coronavirus, this is an announcement regarding the production status of DISCO products.

Precision Processing Tools

Because DISCO keeps a 6-month supply of raw materials in stock as part of our BCM (business continuity management) measures, production and shipment are currently unaffected. We are also continuously replenishing this stock to ensure a constant supply to maintain our production and shipment schedule.

Precision Processing Equipment

Equipment scheduled for shipment during February 2020 will be produced and shipped without any delay. During and after March, standard specification equipment can be produced and shipped as scheduled. However, because some suppliers of component parts base production in China, depending on the specification, there are some concerns regarding future supply. The aforementioned suppliers resumed operations on Monday, February 10, 2020, but it has been confirmed that the operation rate has fallen due to factors such as remote work. If the situation becomes prolonged, DISCO will proceed with measures such as switching to alternative suppliers with whom DISCO has built relationships and design changes to ensure stable production and shipment.


Status updates will be provided on the DISCO website as the situation develops.
