PRECISION TOOLING
Accurate, Quality Parts That Work Flawlessly With Your Machinery

I-Source makes precision tooling for all sorts of electronic devices including SMT Stencils, SMT Pallets, SMT Inspection Templates, and BGA Rework Kits.

When you need high quality and fast turn-around on laser micromachining for assembly, I-Source gets you up and running quickly. We work with tight tolerance laser cutting on all kinds of standard and exotic materials, and all of our custom fixtures, tooling, and parts are designed & manufactured at our Orange County, California facility. Services include welding, milling, sandblasting and finishing.

SMT Laser Cut Stencils

Surface Mount Stencils For Electronics Assembly

laser-cut-smt-stencils-products-i-source-technical-services,-incI-Source custom fabricates high quality, stainless steel SMT laser cut stencils for use in PCB assembly. All standard configurations are available, and all of our precision SMT stencils are electro-polished for enhanced paste release. For superior flexibility in achieving optimal solder paste volume deposit for components with diverse paste requirements, our multi-level stencils allow for multiple paste thickness with a single stencil.

We use state-of-the-art laser machines calibrated for optimal cut quality, high aperture and positional tolerances. When you order from I-Source, you can be assured that your stencil will be highly accurate and made from the best materials available.

Additional Processes

Micro-Etching – A unique chemical process developed at I-Source that creates a glass-like surface within the aperture wall, making it easier for the paste to go through. With this process we can manufacture stencils with a high aspect ratio.
Nano Coating – A chemical wipe that coats the stencil for:

  • Enhance paste release
  • Reduce cleaning frequency during the printing process
  • Provide better quality printing

EPR (Enhanced Paste Release) for slick SMT stencils:

  • EPR 1 – The stencil is nano coated
  • EPR 2 – The stencil apertures are micro-etched
  • EPR 3 – The stencil is nano coated and micro-etched

The Rack SMT Stencil Storage Solution I-Source Technical Services, Inc.

Shadow Masks

Improve Deposition Performance

shadow-mask-manufacturing-i-source-technical-services,-incShadow masks (also known as deposition masks & evaporation masks), are used in a wide range of vacuum-chamber evaporation and sputtering processes to fabricate both simple and complex micro-engineered electronic components and products. They are increasingly being used to deposit inks onto substrates during the manufacture of flat LED panel displays and other organic circuitry.

I-Source supplies a range of deposition masks such as single masks, multi mask sets, and frame systems with the possibility of ‘stepped’ recesses, limiting the need for spacer sheets. Finished shadow masks typically withstand post-deposition cleaning for up to 10 times longer than conventional masks.

Additional Information

Materials – Smaller than metal masks made for solder paste printing, our custom shadow masks are typically made from stainless steel but are also available in nickel and other alloys. Although we recommend stainless steel for most applications because it holds up well to temperatures and chemicals, we have experience fabricating shadow masks from other metals as well.

SMT Inspection Templates

Speed Up Your Manufacturing Inspection Process

inspection-template-manufacturing-i-source-technical-services-incThe ability to easily locate specific locations on a pcb board helps dramatically with reduced scrapped assemblies. An accurate SMT inspection template will enable your operators to quickly and safely check assemblies for correct component placement, polarity and more.

Each I-Source ESD inspection template is fabricated on one of our CO2 laser machines. See specs and details below.

Material Specifications

  • Made of Static Dissipative Plastic – thin gauge, extruded
  • Thicknesses of 0.030”, 0.040”, 0.060” and 0.070” are available
  • Non-Carbon Filled
  • Non-Migratory
  • Non-Humidity Dependent
  • Low Out-Gassing Values
  • Non-Soughing
  • Chemically Resistant

Features

Made of thin gauge ESD plastic, which is also dimensionally stable and provides excellent wear.

By client name, assembly number and revision, date of fabrication, I-Source job number, and any other information which you request, such as component reference designators or polarized component polarity indicators.

Ordering Details

Allow just a few days for design and one day for production.

Please be prepared to supply the following Gerber data files:

  • Final Assembly Layer
  • SMT Paste Layer
  • Component Reference Designator Layer
  • The PC Board/Panel Fabrication Drawing

BGA Rework & BGA Reballing Stencils & Systems

BGA Rework & Reball To Salvage Sensitive Components

With the high cost of BGAs, you can’t afford to scrap these out when something goes wrong with the board assembly. I-Source Technical Services offers two solutions for BGA rework and BGF reballing.

BGA or Micro BGA Reballing Kit

Custom designed and manufactured in-house for use with your specific chip, each self-contained kit includes everything you need to repair and reball BGA chips. Kits can be made 1-up to 4-up, can be reused indefinitely, and come with clear instructions so that even novices can use them successfully. What’s Included?

BGA Rework Stencil

bga-reball-i-source-technical-services,-inc
For use in any of the various reballing rework stations available on the market, each BGA rework stencil is designed for your specific chip and reworking station.

Support

If your business is located near our Southern California facility, we can send one of our engineers to your facility to provide in-person training for your staff.

Ordering Details

Typical turnaround time is 2 to 3 days.

To create your BGA reballing system or stencil, you will need to supply us with the manufacturer’s chip specifications (i.e. mechanical drawings), and the chip if possible.

We offer free local delivery and discounted shipping options.
