What is PCB stencil?
The sole purpose of an SMT stencil is to transfer solder paste to a bare circuit board. A stainless steel foil is laser cut creating an opening for every surface mount device on the board. Once the stencil is properly aligned on top of the board, solder paste is applied over the openings (making a single pass, using a metal squeegee blade). When the stainless steel foil is separated from the board, solder paste will remain, ready for placement of the SMD. This process, as opposed to hand soldering methods, ensures consistency and saves time.
Now you can add a stencil to any PCB fabrication order. Simply place your PCB order as usual, and choose from a variety of stencil types and sizes, one to fit each of your stencil requirements.
Need to order a replacement stencil for boards previously manufactured by PCBGOGO? No problem! Just access the board order via your account order history at any time, and order a stencil directly from your history.
