COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Photo Stencil and Montauban, France-based Novatec, a research laboratory that develops technologies for the electronics assembly industry, have teamed to distribute Novatec's VacuNest underboard support product throughout North America.
The VacuNest tooling system takes impressions of boards and maintains their exact shapes with component contours using a pliable, anti-static chamber that contains solid particles. Once the chamber conforms to the board, a vacuum locks the particles without shrinkage, creating a firm support for all boards in production. Photo Stencil believes that distributing VacuNest throughout North America will enable the company to offer customers underboard support and recent printing solutions.
