FCT Assembly Installs New Micrometers to Improve Stencil Accuracy

May 13, 2013

FCT Assembly today announced that it has installed new Mitutoyo Deep Throat Micrometers to accurately measure the step etch depth over the entire surface of the stencil. This is another example of the improvements FCT Assembly is putting in place since the purchase of Global Stencil, Inc.

As we develop new stencil technologies, we must ensure the accuracy and quality of every product that goes out the door. This new tool will allow us to inspect every step etch stencil at the micro level to provide consistency,” commented Mike Scimeca, President & CEO, FCT Assembly.

The new set of micrometers measures 18" into the stencil area, giving FCT the ability to produce more accurate and consistent step etch stencils. The micrometers will be mounted in a granite support plate, enabling FCT to measure all areas of the stepped area and identify and improve its process capabilities.
