What Is ScanSTENCIL Lite?

ScanSTENCIL Lite is a fully integrated, stand-alone process control, measurement and inspection workstation for use after solder paste stencil and hybrid emulsion screen fabrication or other machined, etched or laser cut operations.

ScanSTENCIL Lite uses a PC Windows-based software package integrated with a high-resolution, calibrated, A3 size flatbed scanner. This combination allows inspection of both stencils and screens for accuracy and the ability to inspect 100% for absence/presence and correct size of apertures.

Automatic Features

Tired of using slow manual measurement and inspection methods? ScanSTENCIL Lite offers various functions that quickly and automatically verify data:

  •  Absence/Presence of Apertures
  •  Confirm Proper Aperture Shape and Size
  •  Compare Stencil/Screen vs. Gerber
  •  Compare Stencil/Screen vs. Stencil/Screen
  •  Compare Stencil/Screen vs. PCB
  •  Confirm Proper Aperture Position
  •  Automatic Inspection Accuracy Level Detection


Worried about the quality of the finished stencils, screens or Gerber files? Use ScanSTENCIL Lite’s “check functions” to verify the accuracy of the data. The new LMA option allows for checking apertures as small as 0.002” diameter (0.050 mm).


ScanSTENCIL Lite can be easily upgraded to full ScanSTENCIL with Gerber generation capabilities.
