FINE LINE STENCIL Premiers New Slic Stencil Technology

Jun 06, 2008

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO � June 5, 2008 � FINE LINE STENCIL, a division of FCT Assembly and a leading manufacturer of stencil products, introduces its newest Slic� laser cut stencil.

The Slic� material has been proven to outperform the industry standard stainless steel material. Slic� has the mechanical and thermal properties of industry standard stainless steel, yet offers superior paste release due to the makeup of this proprietary material. Print studies have verified improved paste roll activation, smoother walls and better release. Further study results show significant improvements to aperture wall smoothness, which translates to enhanced printed deposits.

Slic� stencils incorporate a base material with a denser grain structure that results in fewer voids, smoother aperture walls, and provides the same tensile and yield strength as stainless steel material. Slic� significantly outperformed the standard stainless steel material available in most of today�s stencils.

FINE LINE STENCIL combines exceptionally quick turnarounds to deliver optimized print deposit consistency.

Slic� stencils have repeatability of �16 �m and are suitable for applications with surface area ratios of 0.55 and above. Featuring a positional accuracy of �12.5 �m (over 600 x 600 mm) and an aperture dimensional tolerance of �9 �m, the following standard material thicknesses are available: 0.004, 0.005, 0.006, 0.007, 0.008, 0.009 and 0.010". Additional thicknesses are available upon request.
