Galvanically structured metal stencils

Galvanically structured metal stencils made of pure nickel stand out due to their long service life and good release behavior.


These SMD stencils are predestined for very complex and filigree prints such as LTCC printing, fineline, waferbumping and balling applications. This very costly and complex production process can result in production times of 5 to 7 working days. The stencil thickness can have production-related tolerances of ± 5%.

Technical information

  • Material: Pure nickel (hardness 650 HV)
  • Minimum pad width:  = material thickness
  • Stencil size up to: 740 mm x 600 mm
  • Minimum web width: 1.2 – material thickness
  • Material thickness: 10 µm – 200 µm
  • Minimum grid: 200 µm
  • Max. printing format: 600 mm x 500 mm
  • Stencil thickness tolerance: ± 5%

Etched metal stencils

Copper alloys such as nickel silver, copper bronze and brass or stainless steel are the most popular choices for producing etched metal stencils. We tend to offer stainless steel or nickel silver stencils because of their significantly higher mechanical stability and abrasion resistance.

Technical information

  • Maximum stencil size: 750 mm x 620 mm
  • Stencil thickness: 10 µm to 2000 µm
  • Minimum pad width: = material thickness
  • Min. web width: 0.8 x material thickness
