QTS Releases Wizard Frame Quick Tensioning System Print E-mail

Wizard Stencil Stretch Frame system changed and tensions stencils using simple, adaptable components and readily-available shop air (compressed). Consists of two frame components plus the stencil foil. A patented molded plastic Container Frame holds the stencil foil for handling, mounting, and space-saving storage, using 64 to 80 contact points to hold the foil stencil in place, and protects workers from injuries during handling. When ready to mount for printing, the Container Frame and stencil are mounted in the adjustable, durable, lightweight aluminum frame assembly Stencil tension can be modified in all directions with the amount of air pressure applied. Requires less storage space (since stencil foils can be stored in their compact plastic Container Frames) and eliminates need for epoxy bonding of the stencil foil to a cast frame. Come in three sizes and three types of plastic composition for specific applications.
