Photo Stencil LLC has released a line of stencil products and technologies integrated in DEK's VectorGuard frameless stencil tensioning system. This includes Photo Stencil's NicAlloy-XT, chemical etch, step, coated, laser-cut and electroformed stencils. According to the company, the ease-of-use of the VectorGuard system delivers space savings and convenience.

VectorGuard's high accuracy foil tensioning and alignment is automatic, reducing mounting time to seconds. The company added that the stencil solution enables safer handling, is clean, compact, keeps stencil foils hanging in an orderly manner, and recyclable.


The VectorGuard frameless stencil tensioning system features repeatable and accurate foil tension.

Enhanced rigidity makes it easier to retrieve, fit and tension the foil. Protective cassettes reduce storage space by up to 75 percent compared to conventional stencils, and Photo Stencil stencils in VectorGuard frames are available in all stencil thicknesses.

"VectorGuard is one of the most robust and user-friendly frameless systems on the market. Photo Stencil is unique in offering a full range of stencil products, including mixed technology/hybrid stencils, in VectorGuard frames. Customers in all market sectors, including surface mount technology, semiconductor packaging, solar, medical and industrial, can now take advantage of these frameless systems, and it makes great business sense for them, too," stated Rachel Miller-Short, VP of sales, Photo Stencil.
