Sunstone Circuits® Now Offering Stencils for Quickturn and Full Feature PCB Prototypes
Mulino, OR – August 23, 2011 – Sunstone Circuits®, the leading printed circuit board (PCB) prototype solutions provider, has enhanced their services by offering SMT stencils when placing an order within their Quickturn, Full Feature, and CAD Tool, PCB123® product lines. Stencils join a growing suite of PCB solutions that includes Bundled Assembly, PCB Design Software and Free DFM. With the new stencils addition, Sunstone Circuits is continuing to differentiate themselves as a comprehensive PCB solutions provider within the marketplace.
Stencils are used for even deposition of solder paste onto a bare circuit board. The use of stencils replaces hand soldering of surface mount devices, and eliminates the inconsistencies created by hand soldering. By adding stencils to a new or previous PCB order on www.sunstone.com, a design engineer can eliminate this tedious error-prone process of hand soldering their printed circuit board, increase the quality of their product, and save valuable time.
With the new availability of stencils, Sunstone customers will experience numerous benefits. All stencils feature the following:
- Permanent, non-removable, and non-fading fiducials
- Exclusive performance enhancing stencil design modifications, tailored specifically for each customer
- 100% laser cut, ensuring the finest quality finish
- All fixed frame stencils are double bonded to withstand extreme wear
- Plates available with safety features to protect against sharp plate edges
With the new addition of the stencils product line, Sunstone customers now will have even greater confidence in the quality and consistency between their printed circuit board order and their stencil order.
"Our customers deserve high-quality, innovative PCB solutions that are reliable and help save them time and money. We listened to feedback we received and realized that by offering stencils during the ordering process, we could simplify and streamline the design process for our customers,” said Al Secchi, Customer Service Manager at Sunstone Circuits. “Incorporating stencils into the PCB online ordering process is just another example of how Sunstone is listening to what our customers are saying in order to deliver products that they deserve.”
