FINE LINE STENCIL to Install LPKF ScanCheck System in San Jose Facility

Dec 14, 2009

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO — December 2009 — FINE LINE STENCIL, a division of FCT Assembly and a leading manufacturer of stencil products, announces plans to install an LPKF ScanCheck system in its San Jose, CA stencil facility.

The LPKF ScanCheck system can be used to examine stencils and masks made with any technology including laser cut, chemical etched or electro-formed. The system checks for three parameters and detects apertures that are missing, placed incorrectly or are the incorrect size, based on the Gerber® artwork files.

The system features a programmable resolution from 1,500 to 12,000 dpi. The resolution can be set for 1,500 dpi if the requirement is fast scanning performance to test for missing apertures. The full 12,000 dpi is used to measure aperture position, size and quality.

“By stocking our local facility with the latest technological advancements in equipment and setting double checks in place for quality purposes, FINE LINE STENCIL is paving the way to lead the Valley in technology and quality, just as it has done in other areas of North America,” said Mike Scimeca, President & CEO of FCT Assembly.

The ScanCheck is capable of testing both framed and unframed stencils. After testing, the system will generate reports based on a combination of missing, incorrect size or misplaced apertures, or for all apertures.
