Colorado Springs, CO — Photo Stencil, LLC, a full-service provider of high-performance stencils and tooling, now makes available its full range of stencil products and technologies integrated in DEK's VectorGuard® frameless stencil tensioning system. This includes Photo Stencil's new NicAlloy-XT, chemical etch, step, coated, laser-cut, and electroformed stencils. The VectorGuard system delivers space savings and convenience with maximum ease-of-use and repeatable and accurate foil tension and alignment. It enables safer handling, is clean, compact, keeps stencil foils hanging in an orderly manner, and the system is recyclable as the frames can be reused.

VectorGuard's high accuracy foil tensioning and alignment is automatic, reducing mounting time to seconds. Enhanced rigidity makes it easier to retrieve, fit, and tension the foil. Protective cassettes reduce storage space by up to 75 percent compared to conventional stencils, and Photo Stencil stencils in VectorGuard frames are available in all stencil thicknesses.

According to the company, it has been a licensee of DEK's VectorGuard system for over six years. It has developed a comprehensive range of stencil products in a VectorGuard foil. The user benefits from proprietary processes such as NiPlate, that ensures ultra-smooth aperture walls and superior paste release, and NanoCoat, for the highest quality print deposit.

VectorGuard is described as one of the most robust and user-friendly frameless systems on the market. The company offers a full range of stencil products, including mixed technology/hybrid stencils, in VectorGuard frames. Customers in all market sectors, including surface mount technology, semiconductor packaging, solar, medical, and industrial, can now take advantage of these frameless systems.
