SMT Stencils (solder paste and adhesive stencils) are an absolute necessity for SMT PCB assembly
. SMT stencils from PCBSky are manufactured using laser technology, which ensures a constant process quality through its high level of precision.
Our SMT Stencils fulfil the most stringent quality requirements with optimal register accuracy and cutting precision. The precise axial tolerance of ± 2µm and a repeat accuracy of ± 3µm offers optimal conditions for solder paste printing, even for the smallest high-tech components.
In addition, the pads on laser-cut stencils have a slightly conical opening towards the printed circuit boards side, thus providing for optimal release behaviour for the solder paste.
Following services are already included with PCBSKY:

Hightech makes it possible
Thanks to the carbon fiber axis setup, the cutting speed per system is a realistic 20.000 pads per hour. The innovative Real-Time Process Control-System checks each pad (Aperture) for completeness and correct dimensions, in real time.

SMT Stencils for quick clamping frames
On request we will gladly apply the necessary mounting holes (perforation) to your stencil for loading into all popular, license-free quick clamping frames (also quick-tension system, stretching frame) and self mounting systems.
A quick clamping frame replaces the solid aluminum frame. The SMT Stencils is used as required and pneumatically (rarely mechanically) brought to an even tension.
Currently we can place mounting holes for the following quick clamping frames:
