BEST can provide precision laser machining services for your stainless steel thin parts up to 0.020" (0.5mm).
We have been providing the electronics as well as other industries with custom laser machined precision parts for many years being able to drill over 10,000 custom precision apertures over a 9 square foot area. We can are able to work with your GERBER, .dwg, .dxf, .eps, .ai , .pdf and other vector file formats to bring you stainless steel machined parts quickly, without burrs or blemishes.
BEST has a variety of thicknesses in stock from 3-20 mils. Not only can we machine stainless steel but also copper, brass, titanium, carbon steel and others.
We have also supplied numerous industries applications shadow masks. These shadow masks can be made of a variety of thin metal materials and be precision cut to your requirements.
Shadow masks define device areas and form micro-structures covering or masking off the target surface. Patterning a silicon wafer or substrate is usually processed with deposition using a mask such as this.
BEST Inc laser-machined shadow-masks are a rapid and cost effective alternative over photo lithography when feature sizes are greater than 10um. Laser fabricated geometries achieve smaller dimensions, tighter tolerances than chemical etching. Shadow masks can be fabricated from unconventional metal substrates that eliminate possible chemical contamination or reactions that are unwanted in the chamber. Laser specifications and tolerances are ........
— Maximum process tolerance is ± 10μm.
— Minimum width of patterns is 20μm.
Your stainless steel precision parts will be inspected via an optical inspection system in order to insure that critical dimensions are met.
We can provide laser machined shadow masks per your requirements.

Call BEST Inc for your precision cutting of stainless steel parts including but not limited to such shadow masks.
Stencils Unlimited will meet your increasing design requirements of ultra precision metal parts. If you need high quality, burr free precision metal parts, Stencils Unlimited is your answer. Whether you need a few prototypes or several thousand parts, we can handle your requirements quickly and more economically than die stamped and machined metal parts.
Advantages of Laser Cutting over conventional machining: No non-recurring engineering fees Design complexity has very little effect on the cost of tooling Perfect solution for prototype proofing and quick time to market projects Designers can tweak a part or try different designs quickly and at low cost Prototypes are produced using the same method as production parts Clean and Burr Free Edges Does not change the grain structure or hardness of the metal No Stress to metal
