Alpha Releases tensoRED Master Tensioning Frame

Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions, the world leader in the production of electronic soldering and bonding materials, has launched its new tensoRED Master Tensioning Frame, the latest development in its range of state-of-the-art printing stencils.

ALPHA tensoRED Master Tensioning Frame has been specially designed to enable a higher and more even tension compared to ALPHA tensoRED. Due to its innovative design, no air pressure on the frame is needed, resulting in significantly reduced maintenance costs and improved reliability.

“This new Master Tensioning Frame delivers a more even tension,” said Donald Corlett, General Manager for the Stencils division of Alpha Assembly Solutions, part of the MacDermid Performance Solutions group of businesses, “Which results in less paste smearing, as well as reduced variation and improved positional alignment on volume deposits, compared to ALPHA Tetra Master Frame.”

ALPHA tensoRED requires a minimum of 1 loading station per customer and is available in common printer sizes and additional adaptors that configure smaller frame sizes to fit into full 29” printer openings. ALPHA  tensoRED can be used with a number of ALPHA stencil products, including ALPHA Precision Milled Stencils, ALPHA Cut, ALPHA Nickel-Cut and ALPHA Form.
