Types of PCB Stencils
Types of PCB Stencils
 
There are four types of PCB stencils:  prototypes, framed, frameless and hand/ rework stencils. Each has a different function.
Prototype PCB stencils are customised laser cut stencils made for various PCB needs. They are also used in Gerber files. They are generally designed for manual printing.
 
Framed PCB stencils (also known as glue-in stencils) are laser-cut stencils mounted permanently on a stencil frame. They are designed for high speed printing on PCB, and for production runs.
 
Frameless PCB stencils do not require permanent fixing to a frame. They are mainly used for screening printing on PCBs, and are a useful option for short-run production and PCB prototypes.
 
Hand rework stencils are used to print individual components onto a PCB. In general, they are used in rework situations, but can also be used in developing prototypes. The stencil includes a flag that allows the stencil to be hand-held.
