The standard laser cut stencils by Christian Koenen show better print results thanks to cutting with specially developed lasers.
The apertures are cut with the edges adjusted to the grains of the used solder paste.
The patented technology of electropolishing translates into a staggering accuracy and repeatablity of the print.
The possibilities of adjusting the stencils to the PCBs topology, bending the sharp edges or lasering basically any image, logo or a code make the storage and work with the CK stencils particularly easy and pleasant.
Step and 3D stencils
The differences in the components dimensions and the density of their placement often require that different amounts of the solder paste are printed.
The step stencils or the 3D stencils are the ideal solution for such cases.
The advantage of Christian Koenen stencils lays in the extremely precise preparation of the steps leading to a fluent move of the squeegee and to a stable print.
The squeegees are especially adjusted for the applications with a big difference in the zero to step dimension.
The CK Nanovate stencils represent a revolution in the nickel stencils.
In comparison to the standard nickel stencils the patented Nanovate has a very fine grain (10-20um), it is ready to be cut with a laser, it is firm, smooth and resilient.
Therefore it combines the hardness and the life time of nickel stencils and the durability and smoothness of stencils made of steel. In addition, no further surface treatments are needed as the Nanovate material itself is very smooth even after lasercutting.
The Pumprint stencils are most often used for printing of glue, when the adjustable height (from 2mm to >10mm) and the possibilites to print on a clear PCB as well as mounted PCB are needed.
Christian Koenen manufactures the stencils for fixed frames as well as variants for self-mounting frames (Alpha Tetra, Stencilman, Quattroflex, VectorGuard and others).
