If stencils with frame mounting holes are required, with data editing suitable for production runs, consider using our full service bureau style laser stencil cutting service.
The express laser stencil service makes it affordable to reap the benefits of using solder paste stencils for manufacturing prototype and small batch production electronic assemblies. We regret that we cannot supply stencils mounted on fabric stretched over aluminium frames.
Express stencils are shipped on the next working day following the working day of order placement. Express laser stencils are suitable for all component pitches down to 0.4mm (0.016") and all discrete components down to 0201s.
The profile of the Express laser stencil is cut to the size of your PCB with the addition of a plain border of at least 10 mm on all sides.
Note that all Express stencils are supplied as foils without any frame fixing holes or fiducials. It is assumed that paste data files will be 1:1 to your PCB pad data.
Express laser stencils will be cut with standard feature reductions of 5% from your PCB layout data. If top and bottom stencils are required, request 2 stencils on the order form and pay the lot price for 2 stencils as quoted.
Your stencil must be for a PCB or panel no greater than 330mm x 230mm overall and your stencil must contain under 1500 pads.
If your PCB has been ordered in a standard PCB Train step & repeated panel, then we will step single image paste data to the same pitch. We guarantee that the stencil will register perfectly with your PCB panel. When ordering such stencils, enter the overall "x" and "y" dimensions of the step & repeated panel in the Express stencil price calculator.
