FINE LINE STENCIL Introduces Space Saver Frames

Oct 16, 2008

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO � October 2008 � FINE LINE STENCIL, a division of FCT Assembly and a leading manufacturer of stencil products, introduces Space Saver Frames.

The Space Saver Frames reduce storage requirements while maintaining traditional stencil mounting techniques. Additionally, the frames save space while providing the most advanced stencil technology in the industry.

The system consists of two parts: the �Adapter,� which measures 29 x 29 x 1" and is required for each printer. The second part is the �Space Saver Frame,� which measures 29 x 29 x 0.5". This frame is designed to be stretched with polyester mesh to provide a flexible mounting platform for stainless steel stencils.

The Space Saver Frame is attached to the Adapter using pins that are permanently captured in the Adapter. Bushings pressed into the Space Saver Frame receive the pins and prevent the assembly from shifting while being installed in the printer. This system effectively reduces storage space from 1�" per stencil to only �" per stencil.

Three frames will fit in the traditional space of one, eliminating the problems associated with shipping bare stencil foils that can be damaged in shipment or can cause finger cuts while attaching to frameless systems. Finally, because of the strength of the Space Saver Frame, there is no concern of damage during stencil cleaning. Fine Line Stencil offers the Space Saver Frame to replace the standard 29 x 29 x 1.5" tubular frames. The 20 x 20" and Fuji 4000 versions are available as well.
