Ensure repeatable and consistent printing quality with Veco’s metal squeegee blades

Metal squeegee blades are a solution to the problems of scooping and scavenging that traditional polyurethane squeegees create with larger stencil apertures. They are developed to address the rheology problems associated with less dense lead-free and no-clean pastes. These pastes have a tendency to cling to a conventional unpolished blade resulting in paste hang-up at the end of the print stroke, thereby reducing the paste bead on subsequent print strokes. The improved paste-roll characteristics aided by reduced surface tension also extends the printing life of the paste. 

Our Squeegee Blade Solutions

Veco/Tecan squeegee blades are manufactured from a durable metal and include a reactive mobile edge to ensure good contact with the squeegee side of the stencil throughout the printing process. They out-perform traditional polyurethane blades, single thickness metal blades and coated blades and are suited to both single thickness and multi-level stencils (with either raised or recessed areas).

Highly-polished nickel squeegee blades are also available, offering improved compatibility with lead-free pastes, optimized aperture fill and paste-conditioning characteristics which extend print life.

Handheld squeegee options are also available including holders and replacement blades:
