COLORADO SPRINGS, CO -
Photo Stencil, LLC, a leading full-service provider of high-performance stencils and tooling, introduces its new Interactive Squeegee Blade Selection Guide. Available on the Photo Stencil website at www.photostencil.com, the Guide provides characteristics to look for when choosing a squeegee blade, the types of blades available, and information about which blade to use for a particular application and printer make and model. The sizes and prices are listed for each Photo Stencil part number. Wiper blades, squeegee holders, head assemblies, and shims are also included in the Guide.
A complete line of blades, including DuraGlide™, E-Blade®, OEM, and specialty blades, is given along with printer machine type and manufacturer. Blade configurations fit any of the common metal squeegee holders such as DEK, EKRA, Fuji, Panasonic, and MPM/Speedline. Part numbers are aligned to each printer and an explanation is given as to the type of squeegee blade required, how it will perform, the Photo Stencil part number equivalents for each blade and blade size, and the Photo Stencil price in US dollars.
"The technology of the blade is as important as the stencil. Our Guide helps you select the correct blade for the stencil and stencil printer you are using," explained Rachel Short, VP sales and marketing, Photo Stencil. "Photo Stencil has a long history of manufacturing squeegee blades and stencils. Our blades are of the highest quality, incorporate the latest technologies to handle complicated print challenges, are proven to be durable and maintain their original edge, and can be purchased at prices comparable to other manufacturers' blades. You also get Photo Stencil's customer service and application support team."
Photo Stencil has organized its blades into core categories to make it easier to determine which type of blade to use and which part number to select to fit the printer being used. Purchasing Photo Stencil blades reduces costs because the blades are among the most durable on the market, reduce solder paste waste, and the high printing quality minimizes the need for rework and repair. Using Photo Stencil's new Interactive Squeegee Blade Selection Guide, parts and prices can be identified so it is easy to order and have them shipped to inventory.
