Deposition masks

Deposition masks

Deposition mask techniques 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 panel displays.

Tecan's manufacturing technologies provide accuracy and durability advantages over conventional mask manufacturing techniques.

Burr-free aperture edges and controllable draft angles enable improved deposition performance.

Finished masks, produced in stainless steel and nickel with optional gold-plating, typically withstand post-deposition cleaning for up to 10 times longer than conventional masks.

Single masks, multi-mask sets and frame systems are all available dependent on the application. Multi-level masks can be produced with 'stepped' recesses, limiting the need for spacer sheets in multiple-sheet sets.
