Solder paste stencils and frames

Once you have ordered your PCB’s you will usually also need a stencil to apply solder paste for surface mounted components. Naturally, at Elprint we supply both PCB’s and stencils, and we also offer frames for your stencils – a complete solution. By ordering everything from us you are guaranteed that everything fits together. We can also advise on selecting the best stencil for your particular project.

Solder paste stencils

All of our stencils are delivered from our partners in China, Germany or Sweden. They are laser cut on Japanese SUS304 steel.

After cutting, they are electro-polished – a process that removes impurities and burrs as well as smoothing the hole edges, which is especially important for fine-pitch components.

Capabilities

Maximum size 595 x 595 mm
Thickness 100, 110, 120, 130, 150, 180, 200, 250 µm
Treatment Electro-polished
Etching (stepping) Up to 2 thicknesses per stencil
Etch down in 10µm steps from base thickness
Minimum opening size 50 µm
Minimum distance between openings 150 µm

Special offer for A5 stencil delivered together with PCB

We offer a highly discounted price for stencils if you order it together with PCBs.
– Boards must be ordered from one of our manufacturers in China with a lead time of more than 5 days
– The stencil size must be no larger than 200 mm x150 mm.

In the Macaos Enterprise Stencil Module, there is an “A5 value with PCB” stencil frame. Selecting this frame automatically sets the stencil size to 20 mm larger than the size of your board. If desired, you may increase the stencil size up to 200 mm x150 mm.

Frames for all purposes

We can also supply LPKF frames for tensioning your stencils. They are available in 3 different designs for different needs. LPKF does not have a patent on their stencil frames, so stencil prices are substantially lower than those of patented frame systems.

Frame selection is mostly a matter of your production environment. Larger companies will typically choose the Zelfex Z4P, with compressed air tensioning, which is advantageous for large volume assembly work. Zelfex QR/ZR, on the other hand, may be more suitable for smaller businesses with less assembly volume. If you have any doubts about what to choose, you can always contact our competent and experienced staff. They are happy to help you with any questions you might have.

ZelFlex Z4P

Stencil frame with 4-sided compressed air tensioning, which ensures quick and equal tension in all directions.

ZelFlex Protect

A new and unique system with all the benefits of Z4P, but with higher security for both the operator and the stencil itself. The stencil is placed in an extra plastic frame, which can hold the stencil for as long as needed – even during storage. This plastic frame protects the stencil and the operators’ hands. This solution is optimal for businesses that use the same stencil mutiple times.

ZelFlex QR/ZR

This is the smallest and most affordable frame with tensioning on 2 sides without the use of compressed air. Tensioning and stencil replacment is easy.
