Plastic, zinc, brass, stamping and marking templates
The template is a cut-out shape for alphabets, numbers, symbols, and illustrations. Engraving and marking templates provide quality of work and save a lot of time. Insoles are available in a wide variety of materials and manufacturing methods. Stainless steel and plastic are the most used materials. The thickness ranges from a few millimeters to 0.040 depending on the components to be placed.
Marking template material
The stencil material can be a critical variable in the stencil printing process. The deposition and release dynamics are quite different between metal and plastic stencils.
Plastic stencils have several advantages over metal stencils. Plastic stencils are easy to clean and store. No rust problem with plastic. The plastic template weighs less than the metal templates. Plastic stencils are generally much thicker than metal stencils, and small openings may require more aggressive cleaning, such as high-pressure spraying or ultrasonic methods. Plastic is a more durable and flexible material. Mylar is a special type of plastic that is typically used to make plastic stencils. It has one shiny side and the other dull to create a difference between the stencil side and the bottom.
The plastic template also has disadvantages. Since the openings in the plastic template are perforated, only round shapes are possible. Also, since plastic stencil technology is new, they are not as widely available as stainless steel stencils and can be more expensive. Finally, the plastic stencil can be damaged by metal squeegee blades, and therefore only polyurethane or special blades (provided by the screen manufacturer) are recommended. Plastic stencils have been recommended when the application requires a wide range of dot heights in a single print pass.
Metal templates are available at comparatively low prices. There is complete freedom of aperture geometry. Metal templates are recommended when only small dots are needed. We offer a variety of metal marking stencils, including brass stencils, zinc stencils, and stainless steel stencils.
