Laser cut stainless steel stencil with etched areas
When huge open spaces have to be produced on the bottom side of a stencil, the etching technology is one opportunity to realize it. The apertures for the solder paste print process are still manufactured in laser cut technology. The etching technology offers the possibility to produce the open spaces in one production step in the required depth. This technology is used as well for raised ground levels or raised lines which are present on the printed circuit board. The positioning accuracy of all etched laser cut stencils is ±10µm.
