The pneumatic frame is a four sided stretching frame for fast clamping of SMT metal stencils. Simple fast and repetitive changing of stencils is provided by patented perforation or profile. A unique patented system of stretching with compressed air enables perfect tensioning all over the work area. Air is disconnected after setting the stencil to the frame.
Fast exchange of stencils Perfect tensioning all over the stencil No air connection required while printing Less storage place required Short pay-off time
Various thicknesses of stencil can be used and perfectly tensioned for print application. Additionally, the frame provides constant tensioning and therefore constant print quality over time. The functioning of the frame is very simple and therefore reliable.
Lower Production Costs
Only one frame is required per line The same frame can be used for multiple projects The foil is clamped directly into the frame without the need for glue No need to buy new frames or recycle old ones Less storage space is required Only frameless stencils are archived Quick change over time Stencils can be changed in one minute
Your production quality will be improved
Stencils held in equally distributed tension Repeatable tension levels without risk of long term tension level decay Reduced risk of damage while stencils are archived Print area of foils is larger than with meshed frames
Washing of Stencils is Simplified
Only the stencil is washed Elimination of glue and cleaning agent compatibility problems
Some Additional Advantages of the Pneumatic Frame
Once the foil is held in tension the air supply is disconnected No special docking station is required to change the stencil Exchanging foils is quick and easy
Last But Not Least, Using the Pneumatic Frame System Is Also Friendly to the Environment
No need for glues and lacquers Reduced use of cleaning solvents
