Precision Stencils — Laser Cut
Xekera Precision Stencil Service
Xekera makes precision stencils for solder paste deposition using lasers. We use your data to make the stencil from stainless steel in steel shim style. Our precision stencil for solder paste deposition are the most reasonably priced in the US.
For the first time customer, we offer one sample laser cut stencil free of charge, as a promotional offer.
We will extract the stencil information from your Gerber data. Then we edit it to add extra holes for tooling and frame mounting, add tool numbers, fiducial marks, text, and if necessary, we step and repeat the whole data for making a panel. After assembly, we return the stencil to our customers, securing them in storage boxes suitable for storing vertically by hanging.
We make foil type stencils by using stainless steel sheets of thickness 4.92 mils or 5.9 mils. These steel sheets are special and meant for making screens. Depending on the client’s PCB, we design the frame mounting holes specifically.
Our precision stencils are suitable for mounting on foil tensioning systems that solder paste printers typically use. We do not make stencils that mesh frames mount. Typical delivery time for our precision stencils is 2 working days, but we can deliver within 1 working day, and in specific urgent cases, within ½ working day also.
For the half-day stencil delivery service, we need your purchase order and Gerber data before 9:00 AM. We start work on the stencil and we deliver by the end of the same day. We offer this service only on working days.
For the one-day stencil delivery service, we will need your purchase order and Gerber data before 12:00 noon. We will ship your stencil by the end of the next working day. We offer this service only on working days.
For the two-day stencil delivery service, provided we receive your purchase order and Gerber data before 12:00 noon, we can ship your stencil by the end of the working day following the next working day. We offer this service only on working days.
Customers of Xekera Precision Stencils
Our precision laser cut SMT stencils are in great demand with anyone assembling SMDs and who need to deposit solder paste by screen printing method on to their PCBs.
Advantages of Xekera Precision Stencil Service
Based on our vast experience in stencil cutting, we have optimized our methods for producing stencils that allow efficient assembly of SMDs. That is the reason we offer fast turnaround on our stencils at reasonable costs.
For instance, we have developed our own frame tensioning system. As this is non-proprietary, we do not incur royalty and license fee expenses. Most of our competitors use proprietary frame tensioning systems that offer high cost stencils.
