Does anyone know of any interchangeable stencil frame systems? We use Alpha's Metals Smart Frame system,but it is heavy and cumbersome. Also, are there any quality issues that prove the interchangeable system is not as repeatable as the permanently

Thanks for the help! Do you happen to know a good bandaid manufacturer?

Kapton tape is anti-static, that's why we use it so much in this industry. If you are seeing yellow light, either whatever you are pulling ain't Kapton, your Viagra is stale or whatever you had for lunch, I want a double!

what are these kids doing in the dark with band-aids anyway? I'll bet you could get the same effect with Kapton tape (maybe yellow light?) Seriously, I use the IIT proframe Dave mentions down to 25 mil but have gone back to a permanently mounted foil

We have had some success printing 20mil pitch with our IIT Proframe. It takes some babysitting, and you don't want your operators to be changing these things out every hour or you'll be buying lots of them. Pulling tension in one direction gives r
