Material

We manufacture stencils using stainless steel (Material number: 1.4301, fully hardened, annealed). The following material thicknesses are available.

In addition to the standard material, we also provide the "Tension®" material. 

It allows more precise paste printing. Due to the finer structure (grain) in the material, the cut edge is less rough than with conventional material.

This also improves the release of the paste from the stencil. If necessary, electropolishing can be saved.

The following material thicknesses are available:

  • 130 µm 
  • 150 µm
  • 180 µm
  • 200 µm
  • 250 µm
  • 300 µm
  • 400 µm (on demand)
  • 500 µm (on demand)

Tolerances and sizes

Manufacturing tolerances
Axial precision: +/- 2 µm
Reproducibility: +/- 2 µm

Pad size
Minimum pad size from 50 µm depending on the material thickness

Modifications

Pad reduction
We can perform a size reduction of all pads (selective, relative to diameter or by percentage) with no extra charge.

Rounded corners

Radii of up to half of the smallest pad width are possible.
