PCB Solder Paste Stencil
The sole purpose of the PCB stencil is to transfer the solder paste to a bare circuit board. A stainless steel foil is cut by the laser which can create an opening for each surface mount device on the PCB board. Once the stencil is properly aligned on top of the board, the solder paste will be applied to the opening (single scan using a metal squeegee). When the stainless steel foil is separated from the circuit board, the solder paste will remain and SMD will be placed. Contrary to manual soldering methods, this process ensures consistency and saves time.
You can now add the stencil to any PCB manufacturing order. Simply place your PCB order as usual, then choose from a variety of stencil types and sizes to suit your various stencil requirements.
