Stencil printing is a process of placing solder paste on the printed wiring boards (PWBs) in order to establish electrical connections. The equipment used in this process are stencil, solder paste, and printer. The stencil printer is also popularly known as a screen printer. Stencil is a thick paper with designs punched with letters. As a print medium, ink is run through the paper to imprint the letters correctly. Stencils are used to cut designs or letters and later allow the pigment medium, which in either case could be ink, solder paste, or at times, electrical current on to the PWBs through the cut-out holes.
Increasing developments in digital printing technology is likely to make screen printing a marginal technology. Screen printing process is based on the stencil principle. Stencils are primarily used in textile printing with silk screening. High versatility of stencil printing design drives the market.
