ASM-DEK Stencil Technologies

Stencil Technologies

ASM's printing experts stand by your side for all stencil printing-related questions. Using the right stencil for your application is a critical decision. Whether classic mesh-mounted or in the patented VectorGuard frame – we provide stencils for any application and are able to produce them with a wide range of technologies.

If your application and your processes pose special requirements, get in touch with our stencil experts .

We produce the following stencil types for you:

  • DEK stainless-steel stencils
  • DEK fine-grain stencils
    Ideal for fine-pitch applications and our cost-effective alternative to nickel stencils
  • Laser-cut nickel stencils
    The surface qualities of nickel deliver especially even and detailed paste deposits
  • DEK multilevel stencils
    The right area ratio for each component
  • Electroformed stencils
    Built layer-by-layer for outstanding printing properties (more information)
  • DEK 3D stencils
    Electroformed stencils for very special cases – with cavities or for chip-on-board applications

DEK VectorGuard Stencils

VectorGuard frames

DEK VectorGuard has revolutionized the paste printing process. Instead of having to use separate mesh-mounted frames for each stencil, VectorGuard is an easy-to-use foil mounting technology that saves up to 75 percent of storage space for stencils.

Even more important: VectorGuard holds the stencils in place with permanent and even tension. While the tension declines over time and bonded areas weaken in mesh-mounted stencils as they age, VectorGuard maintains the tension for long-term paste transfer efficiency and the best possible printing results.

We offer VectorGuard frames in two versions:

  • VectorGuard
  • VectorGuard HighTension
