Galvanically structured metal stencils made of pure nickel stand out due to their long service life and good release behavior.
These SMD stencils are predestined for very complex and filigree prints such as LTCC printing, fineline, waferbumping and balling applications. This very costly and complex production process can result in production times of 5 to 7 working days. The stencil thickness can have production-related tolerances of ± 5%.
Copper alloys such as nickel silver, copper bronze and brass or stainless steel are the most popular choices for producing etched metal stencils. We tend to offer stainless steel or nickel silver stencils because of their significantly higher mechanical stability and abrasion resistance.
