Metal masks

Metal masks explained

  • This is an original plate used for screen printing, a type of stencil printing.
  • A metal mask prints on an object by allowing paste to pass through openings in a metal plate.
  • It is used for solder paste printing used in surface mounting of printed circuit boards.

Features of metal mask manufacturing


Fabrication method

We provide high-precision, high-quality metal masks by using three types of treatment: laser, additive, and etching processes.


Use cases

This can be used not just for plates for printing, but in a wide range of fields, from deposition and sputtering applications to jigs and metal parts for various devices.


Laser metal masks

Various grades are available according to printing difficulty.
In addition to wall smoothing technology, we can offer optimal metal masks in combination with various surface treatment technologies.

Etched metal masks

For printing metal masks, we can provide various types of half-etching processes.
Various metal parts for vapor deposition and shadow masks can also be processed.

Additive metal masks

This product excels in thickness accuracy, aperture accuracy, and positional accuracy, and boasts high reproducibility even for repeat products.
We support not only the semiconductor industry, but also the ever-miniaturizing field of ultra-small chip components.
