Perforated Edges and Seating Systems

Stencils for self mounting systems are characterized by different seating systems or perforated edges. The self mounting system replaces the fixed frame.

Pneumatically or mechanically, uniform tension is generated. For stencil thicknesses > 100 µm, self mounting systems are an inexpensive and space-saving alternative to stencils in fixed frames. Christian Koenen GmbH has licenses for the manufacture of all commonly used perforated edge and mounting systems. The perforated edges are cut together with the data in a single operation.

Thanks to this technology, the stencils produced are positionally precise and free of
angular offset
