We want to get a process running to print paste with a thicker plastic stencil with some room left underneath for preassembled components. I know DEK offers these stencils but since we are using an MPM printer they don't want to sell to us stencils for bump printing, they would only offer the package of printer + technology + stencil. So my questions: are there any other manufacturers of stencils for bump printing?
Go to http://www.globalstencil.com They are the stencil firm that worked with MPM for developing technology for printing with thick stencils that are milled out on the bottom to account for existing components on the top side of a PC board as well as cut & clinched leads on PCB bottom side. Global Stencil is in Texas and you can speak with Greg Smith.
