Solder Paste Stencils

What is the Laser Cut Solder Paste Stencil Service?

We manufacture laser-cut stainless solder paste stencils, in steel “shim” style, from client-supplied data. Precision-cut solder paste stencils start from a reasonable £80.00.

To introduce our service, we offer new customers one sample solder paste stencil without charge, cut to your data.  Contact us now.

We’ll edit your stencil data to incorporate tooling holes, frame mounting holes, frame mounting holes, tool numbers, text, fiducials, steps and repeats and more. Each of your solder stencils is supplied in storage wallets which are secured by Velcro with hooks for hanging storage.

“Foil” type stencils are manufactured using either 0.125 or 0.150mm thick stainless steel sheets that are specifically rolled for solder paste screens. Frame mounting holes are cut to suit each client’s individual mounting system requirements.

We are unfortunately unable to provide stencils mounted over mesh frames. However, the foil type stencils that we supply can be used with a foul tensioning system in a solder paste printer that is intended for use with mesh frames.

Deliveries of half w/day, 1 w/day and 2w/days are available.

The half day service requires orders and data to be with us before 9.00 am, subject to which we will ship by the close of business the same working day, service available weekdays only.

The 1 day service requires orders and data to be with us before 12.00 am, mid-day, subject to which we will ship by the close of business the next working day, service available week-days only.

The 2-day service requires orders and data to be with us before 12.00 am, mid-day, subject to which we will ship by the close of business the day following the next working day, service available weekdays only.
