"We experienced strong demand for our macro products from the machine tool industry, and our micro and marking business was positively impacted by increased orders from the medical device, semiconductor and electronics markets," he said. "The increased backlog and the ongooing sales activities provide a strong foundation for solid performance in future quarters."
