Solder Paste Stencil is available for custom stencil designs.

February 11, 2014

Able to be applied to existing production stencils, chemistry of NanoSlic® Gold coating imparts hydrophobic and oleophobic surface to apertures and underside of stencil; non-stick surface resists solder paste build-up and reduces cleaning cycle requirements.  Nano coating permanently bonds and conforms to aperture walls regardless of size or geometry. Abrasion surface withstands repeated cleaning, and paste release enables high-yield printing at low area SARs (surface area ratios). Read More

Stencil for Solder Paste Printing increases yield, reduces waste.

January 29, 2014

Developed to address electronic assembly industry demands, NanoSlic® Gold stencil features coating based on application process that coats both underside of stencil and aperture walls. Thermally cured and permanent coating is hydrophobic and oleophobic, which repels solder paste. Minimizing rework while increasing yields, properties promote solder paste transfer efficiencies for small apertures. Furthermore, properties minimize bridging and reduce underside cleaning.

Fine Line Stencil helps maximize solar cell efficiency.

May 29, 2013

Ensuring printed line height uniformity, Fine Line Stencil™ enables sub-40 µm line widths with no increase in line resistance. When used in dual print process, stencil first prints busbars with fine mesh screen, and then separately prints conductors. This allows optimized paste to be used for each process which not only gives precise control over print height of busbars and fine lines, thereby saving silver, but also allows non-contacting busbar paste to increase Voc and therefore cell efficiency.

3D Stencil targets multi-level printing applications.

December 7, 2010

Facilitating printing on different levels with upward or downward steps, VectorGuard 3D enables uniform stencil thickness to be achieved for quality print results. Electroformed nickel stencil not only prints 2 levels simultaneously, but can also accommodate levels that differ by up to 3 mm. In addition to providing coverage for dedicated areas on board, VectorGuard 3D is suitable for printing of heatsink pockets for power components or printing of 3D mounting PCBs. Read More

Multi-Level Stencils reduce need for post-print rework.

October 21, 2005

Multi-level stencil helps ensure that appropriate paste volumes are deposited for all components, from power and I/O connectors to discretes and fine-pitch devices of all types, in one squeegee pass. This is achieved by controlling thickness of stencil in selective areas across its surface, local to each component; apertures in thinner areas deliver less paste, and apertures in thicker areas deliver more paste.
