Laser Stencil Masks have a number of distinct advantages, which make them ideal, for printing heavy, solder pastes and epoxy die-attachment materials:

  • Excellent paste transfer 100% open area
  • Excellent solvent resistance
  • Outstanding durability if properly handled

Special Features

Our unique mesh-support system helps to maintain optimum tension on the metal stencil.

  • The mesh will flex enough to allow for printing in the off -contact as will as on contact mode.
  • In most cases, a 25mm minimum border of mesh will be provided around the perimeter of the metal stencil.
  • More border must be provided when off-contact printing is to be utilised.
  • Laser stencil masks from MCI are available on our standard aluminium frames and on all frames provided by customers.
