Photo Stencil’s technology focus has evolved with the industry and is now directed at the most advanced and challenging stencil applications.


The use of stencils is no longer confined to just the PCB industry or laser formed stencils. They now contribute significantly to the semiconductor assembly process and are made of new materials, in clean rooms, and often using laser direct imaging.


Photo Stencil has pushed innovation to achieve stencils that accommodate high density interconnects and complex boards.
