Vector Guard Stencils
The Vector Guard system makes it possible to use different stencils within the same tensioning frame.
The Vector Guard stencils, working with the Vector GuardTM patented 4-sided tensioning system, allow us to use multiple stencils in a single tensioning frame.
Quick, precise stencil-changing, no longer relying on opening- or groove-alignment.
Its aluminium border keeps the stencil rigid after tensioning, making it incredibly user-friendly, with greater protection against accidental cuts, and optimised storage space approximately ¼ of standard rigid frame stencils.

Technologies and processes
EP-Gel electropolishing for SMD stencils reduces roughness around openings by improving how the paste is deposited on the PCB
Treating SMD stencils with a nanocoating improves the paste depositing process and requires fewer cleaning cycles.
Multilevel stencils using microsoldering offer greater control of the stencil printing process by using several thicknesses in the same stencil.
The multi-level micro-machining technology facilitates additional flexibility in both thicknesses and complex geometries.
