We ship the job within 24 – 48 hours for with or without step standard steel stencil. For NanoSlic® process need to add-on 1 day on fabrication. We accommodate faster turnaround when needed.

We recommend IPC-7525 Stencil Design Guidelines edits. Aspect ratio = Width of Aperture/Thickness of stencil = W/T. Area Ratio = Area of Aperture/ Area of Aperture Walls = L x W/ 2x(L+W)xT.

We require a solder paste gerber file in RS-274x format, but we prefer to have silkscreen, solder mask, circuit layer and drill layers to ensure the stencil is accurate to your needs.

We are using fiber lasers Tannlin T11 laser cut machine.

We have nickel foil, fine grain (sus301L), stainless steel (sus304H) and DPS (sus431). If you are interested in others material, please ask us.
