Stencil technologies

The quality of the stencil is a critical factor in the printing process. Stable and cost-effective printing processes can only be achieved with materials that are precisely manufactured and extremely resilient. ASMPT produces stencils with a wide range of technologies – from classic laser cutting to high-precision electroforming, and from single level to multi-level stencils. The broad portfolio of our award-winning DEK stencil and frame solutions features perfectly coordinated high-quality products for all requirements ranging from standard SMT applications to the production of the most complex modules.

Stencil coating technologies

DEK Stencil coatings are extremely thin fluxophobic coatings that can be applied to the stencil surface and/or aperture interior walls. Solder paste is prevented from adhering to the coated areas, helping reduce required understencil cleaning frequency and, in the case of coated apertures, encourage better material transfer efficiency.

Smart Stencil

Declines in tension and surface quality, which are normal as stencils age, reduce the quality, yield and process stability of the solder paste printing process. The RFID tags provided by ASMPT make it possible for the first time to monitor the service life of stencils as easily and conveniently as seamlessly. DEK printers equipped with the Smart Stencil option record each printing cycle on the RFID tag even if the stencil is used in different lines. Never again will the use of outdated stencils hurt the quality and efficiency of your printing process.

  • Easy and fast ordering via our stencil online order system
  • Process stability through seamless service life management
  • For stencils from all manufacturers (customers can apply RFID tags themselves)
  • Ability to store a stencil profile
  • Customer-definable warning and maximum thresholds
