||COLORADO SPRINGS, CO - Photo Stencil, LLC, a leading full-service provider of high-performance stencils and tooling, announces it has won the 2013 Global Technology Award in the stencils, stencil holders, and nano-coatings category for its NiCutX-SmartRelease™ stencils. The award recognizes the best new innovations in the printed circuit assembly and packaging industries.
NiCutX-SmartRelease stencils use an innovative technology that starts with Photo Stencil's electroform stencil, applies a proprietary fiber-optic laser-cutting technology, and then embeds SmartRelease nano-coating. This combination produces superior stencil capabilities and print quality. The smooth aperture walls enable precise paste release while the SmartRelease coating dramatically reduces the need for under-screen cleaning on the printer, improving manufacturing speed and throughput. NiCutX-SmartRelease stencils perform well for applications with high density and mixed components and fine pitch components including ball grid arrays, quad flat no leads, and resistor networks.
"We are honored that the industry recognizes our leadership role and the contribution of our products and technology to furthering the PCB industry," said Neil MacRaild, president of Photo Stencil.
