Improving printing efficiency and yields with Veco’s electroformed stencils
Electroformed Stencils are mainly used for component printing, e.g. solar cell printing, as an alternative to conventional screen printing. With electroforming technique, ultra-fine lines with high aspect ratios and low level of striations could be reached, resulting in higher efficiency as well as yields.
Our electroformed stencil solutions
Veco offers precision electroformed hard nickel stencils, in both single layer and double layer, which have been proved to effectively improve efficiency and yields.
- VECOFINE. Vecofine is an electroformed printing stencil suitable for various screen printing and component printing, with wide applications from adhesive layers, to copper paste in semiconductor structures, capacitor/resistor/inductors, LCD touch panels, solar panels, etc.
- VECODUAL. A Vecodual screen is an electroformed hard nickel stencil consisting of two layers: a top “grid” layer on the squeegee side allowing the printing medium to permeate and a bottom “product” layer which defines the final lay down pattern.
