AGI is committed to delivering a superior stencil. By using the finest Stainless Steel and Fine Grain metals coupled with our pure oxygen atmosphere, we consistently produce a stencil that will maximize throughput and yields. Quality awareness of aperture designs, correct material thickness and reliable fiducial placement will produce the optimum material deposit and alignment for your print process. AGI’s proven track record of quality products and on time delivery will ensure a quality product delivered to meet your needs. We have Lasers located in Tampa and Huntsville to ensure your stencil is shipped on time.

AGI will never use a recycled frame!

AGI Wall Shots with Pure Oxygen Cutting

With AGI’s state of the art lasers and software, we are able to produce the smoothest apertures, without any post processing. In addition, AGI uses the cleanest process gas for cutting stencils. Using Pure Oxygen has helped to create consistent smooth and clean aperture walls for all of our stencils, without any Post Processing.

See the electron microscope images of our walls. These were taken without any post processing, fresh off the laser. The images on the bottom were taken at 500x and with pure oxygen cutting gas.

SPI data confirms that Fine Grain Stainless (RED) can perform as well or better than Nano Coatings (GOLD) down to .55 Aspect Ratio

Precision Chemical Etching for Full Reverse Etch Relief Stencils

Many of our customers have worked with AGI to solve the problem of "thick" solder resist, or silk screen, to improve the "seal" or gasketing of the stencil to the PCB apertures. By etching 1 to 2 mils away from the stencil, around the apertures on the PCB contact side, we have seen an improvement in print performance. These benefits are:

  • Improve gasketing from stencil aperture to pad on board.
  • Reduce Paste Smear.
  • Increase cycles between cleanings.

These benefits are really evident around fine pitch parts. With our precision alignment process, we can etch up to fine pitch apertures within 4 mils reliably
