Highly efficient process for step stencils
Previous processes for the production of step stencils were complex and cost-intensive. Together with LPKF, we have developed our own process for the production of step stencils in order to be able to guarantee low-cost and fast production.
In our step-up stencil method, patches of varying thickness are welded onto a base sheet. According to the SMT, the pad openings are then lasered. At these points, the stainless steel sheet melts, creating very clean inner walls.
These precisely manufactured step stencils are of higher quality compared to conventional stencils, as the stability of the surface is further enhanced by the manufacturing process. In addition, the distances between the step and the pad opening can be kept very small.
