StenTech Inc., the leading provider of stencils to the electronics manufacturing industry in North America, will showcase its new Advanced Nano Coating at the SMTA Silicon Valley Expo & Tech Forum, scheduled to take place Thursday, Dec. 8, 2022 in Sunnyvale, California. Additionally, the company will display its complete line of various stencils and tooling.
Advanced Nano is a highly unique coating that is applied to the bottom side of the stencil and inside the apertures, the squeegee side remains uncoated. This coating provides the stencil with anti-adhesion properties. Advanced Nano utilizes a specialized 1-3 um hardened nano coating. This permanent hydrophobic and oleophobic coating repels solder flux, allowing increased transfer of paste.
Advanced Nano increases transfer efficiency up to 25 percent, and enables significantly less bridging due to its paste efficiency benefits. Due to the anti-adhesion or “non-stick” characteristics, underside cleaning is reduced, giving customers a better yield and less expense on rework and touch-up. Stencils coated with Advanced Nano are ready for use just 30 minutes after coating.
StenTech has been leading the way in stencil technology, being the first company to introduce Fiber Diode lasers into North America. With more than 30 experienced CAD designers, their strength is the support they provide in stencil modifications, materials and thickness recommendations. StenTech offers a complete array of stencil technology, custom-tailored to suit your manufacturing requirements. They manufacture all types of stencils for the SMT industry.
