FCT Assembly is pleased to announce the 20th anniversary of the Fine Line Stencil division. Shortly after FCT Assembly was established in 2004, Fine Line Stencil was acquired.

At the time of the acquisition, Memphis, TN was a strong stencil manufacturing location due to the industrial area and proximity to the main FedEx hub and headquarters. This enables Fine Line Stencil to cut and ship stencils up to midnight same day. Today, FCT Assembly’s stencil division, Fine Line Stencil, has various stencil facilities throughout the United States including Tennessee, Texas and California.

Fine Line Stencil is the sole licensee of the NanoSlic® Coating Technology. The coated stencils are manufactured at the Memphis, TN location. The NanoSlic® Gold coating is based on a proprietary application process that coats both the underside of the stencil and aperture walls offering superior paste transfer efficiency.

FCT Assembly has four divisions; FCT Solder, FineLine Stencil, A-Laser, FCT Recovery, and seven facilities across the country. The company that started with ten employees and 1.5 million annual sales ten years ago has grown to 70 employees and 15 million annual sales today.

For more information, contact a local FCT Assembly sales representative or visit www.fctassembly.com/nanoslic.php.


FCT Assembly consists of three divisions: FCT Solder, Fine Line Stencil and A-Laser. FCT Assembly is a leading and innovative manufacturer of lead-free and leaded solder products, superior quality stencils and precision laser-cut parts with multiple locations throughout North America.

FCT Assembly strongly believes in taking a multi and interdisciplinary approach when developing new products and processes. With expertise in micro-machining, metallurgy, chemistry and polymer technology, FCT Assembly is well positioned to develop products to meet technology challenges and satisfy customer demands.For more information, visit www.fctassembly.com.
