Prototype Stencils are laser cut stencils custom-made for your own circuit boards using your Gerber files. These
laser cut stencils were specially designed for manual printing. They come with a squeegee blade and board holders.
Our Prototype Stencils & Toaster Reflow Oven process will make your circuit board assembly job easier and save
you time. We are backing that with a money-back guarantee
Every day offers new Surface Mount Devices that tantalize you with capabilities you can't find in through hole components. Many types of through hole devices are getting more difficult to find as time passes by because SMT is a more streamlined and profitable process for bigger manufacturers. You would like to take advantage of the newer SMD capabilities, but you may have avoided it because of the problems associated with hand soldering the leads.
You know that stencil printing your paste and reflowing your SMD assembly is the right method but until now nobody has a stencil printer or a reflow oven that is small and affordable.
Guess what? You now have both. Prototype stencils do not have the sophistication of stencil printing and reflow equipment, but it gets the job done including double sided circuit boards. You can even do it from your garage.
It is possible to cut your circuit board assembly time, increase the quality of your designs and open the door to mixed technology you want to work with.
