Interchangeable Stencil offers consistent tension over time.
May 6, 2013 -
In addition to optimized solder paste deposition and definition, VectorGuard™ High Tension features foil tension of 33 N/cm², transferred evenly on all 4 sides. Product has no glue bonds to fail and offers frame flatness for process control and repeatability of position from foil to foil of same product, minimizing time to switch stencil. Long-term integrity of stencil ensures no tension degradation over time.

VectorGuard(TM) High Tension - Taking Stencil Technology to the Next Level
DEK is delighted to present its latest stencil innovation VectorGuard™ High Tension. Expanding on the award-winning VectorGuard interchangeable stencil portfolio, the cutting edge technology will transform your product line. With a system that provides tension 45% greater than previous-generation products, it demonstrates a new way of thinking about the printing process – opening up new possibilities to manufacturers.
The comparative advantages of the VectorGuard technology over mesh mounted stencils are so clear that an industry wide shift towards it has already started. When VectorGuard High Tension was first unveiled at APEX 2013 earlier this year, the first product was sold within an hour of the show opening!
Higher tension, higher yield
VectorGuard High Tension has been proven to deliver improved process control for greater end-of-line yield, with excellent solder paste deposition and definition.
It offers better transfer efficiency over the life of the stencil for leading-edge, miniaturised components. The long-term integrity of the product ensures no tension degradation over time.
Importantly, DEK has made VectorGuard High Tension to be compatible with existing VectorGuard foils to ensure cost-effective process integration for your business.
The VectorGuard Difference
Compared to mesh mounted stencils, VectorGuard offers considerable benefits. These include foil tension of 33 N/cm², transferred evenly on all four sides. This tension remains consistent for a longer period of the stencil life.
VectorGuard has no glue bonds to fail, frame flatness for process control and repeatability of position from foil to foil of the same product (reducing time to switch stencil). It also offers space-saving foil storage in comparison to mesh-mounted stencils.
