Prototype SMT Stencils are laser cut stencils custom-made for your own prototype printed circuit boards using your Gerber or CAD files. These frameless solder paste stencils were specially designed for manual printing. The stencil kit comes with a squeegee blade and board holders.
Our Prototype Stencils & Toaster Reflow Oven process will make your PCB prototype assembly job easier and save you time. We are backing that with a money-back guarantee program. Buy a low cost Prototype SMT Stencil and try it using our recommended process. If you are not satisfied with the results, you may return the stencil for a complete refund.
Every day seems to offer new Surface Mount Devices (SMDs) that tantalize you with a wealth of capabilities you can't find in through hole devices. In fact, many types of through hole components are getting more difficult to even find as time goes by because Surface Mount Technology (SMT) is a more streamlined and profitable process for large manufacturers. You'd like to take advantage of some of the newer SMD capabilities, but may have avoided it because of the problems associated with hand soldering the leads. You know that screen printing your solder paste and reflowing your SMT assembly is the method you would choose if you could. But, to date, nobody has a screen printer or reflow oven that would even fit on your workbench - let alone, be affordable.
Well, guess what? Now you have both. Prototype PCB stencils lack the sophistication of major screen printing and
reflow equipment, but it gets the job done - even double sided SMT printed circuit boards. You can do it right
in your garage or workshop.
It's possible to actually cut your PCB prototype assemblytime, increase the quality of your designs and open the door to all the mixed technology you want to experiment with.
