Fine Line Stencil, a division of FCT Assembly and a leading manufacturer of stencil products, announces it will introduce the UltraSlic™ FG solder paste stencil, which sets new stencil performance standards, in booth 846 at the upcoming APEX 2009 exhibition & conference, scheduled to take place March 31-April 2, 2009 in Las Vegas.
Fine Line Stencil's new UltraSlic FG solder paste stencil is the latest breakthrough in stencil technology. With superior paste release below surface area ratios of 0.5, UltraSlic FG outperforms all existing stencil technologies on the market today. Using the latest stencil laser technology and Datum Alloys' new Fine Grain stencil material, exclusively distributed by Ed Fagan, Inc., UltraSlic FG stencils provide superior aperture registration, higher performance and lower cost compared to electroform, the option of step stencils, and the option of same day turnaround times.

The two photos show the differences between regular stainless steel and UltraSlic FG on etched apertures. As illustrated, much finer features and smoother walls are achieved with UltraSlic FG than with standard 304 or 301SS.
"OEMs and contract manufacturers are faced with ever-increasing challenges as assemblies get more and more complex. With the introduction of our new UltraSlic FG stencil, we are able to offer cost-effective solutions for the most challenging designs. At prices 20-50 percent less than electroform, our customers can now get the performance they need while reducing their overall cost," said Robert Dervaes, V.P. Technology and Engineering for FINE LINE STENCIL.
