We seek to achieve rapid turnaround together with efficient production of solder paste stencils to meet the different technical and commercial demands of our customers.
We offer either ‘chemically etched’ stencils or ‘laser cut’ solder stencils for fine pitch devices. A summary of our solder paste stencil services can be described as follows:
- Laser Cut
- Chemically Etched
- Modification of stencil data to customer specification
- Pattern step & repeat for multiple imaging
Tension levelled stainless steel or nickel silver suitable for a range of solder paste stencils and PCB solder temperature in the following standard thicknesses:
- 0.125mm ( 0.005″)
- 0.150mm ( 0.006″ )
- 0.200mm ( 0.008″ )
- 0.250mm (0.010″ )
- 0.400mm ( 0.016″ )
- Aperture width better than +/- 0.008mm ( 0.0003″)
- Positional accuracy +/- 0.005mm (0.0002″)
- Minimum aperture width 0.050mm (0.002″)
Solder paste stencils are usually dispatched within 2 to 3 days from receipt of your manufacturing information. However, for urgent requirements, we can organise a ’24 hour turnaround’ or even arrange a ‘while you wait’ service.
Our way of measuring the thickness of our solder stencils has a high degree of accuracy as we always take the greatest of care with our solder paste height inspections.
