MPS's TF-100 is a precision stand alone stencil and screen printer specifically designed for thick film circuitry in hybrid microelectronic applications.  It is also ideal for surface mount (SMT) and through hole plications within its 6" X 6" (152mm X 152mm) print area format.

       The TF-100 provides the high degree of precision and repeat ability required for R&D and prototype applications.  Its simplicity of setup and operation, as well as its rugged design and construction, also make it well suited for demanding production environments.

Greater Flexibility and Control

The TF-100 control module allows users to make a variety of print parameter adjustments.  For example, the Mode Selection Switch allows the operator to select any one of four automatic print cycles; single print, alternate print, double print, flood/print, print/flood, and on and off contact prints.

    Solid state electronics provide years of reliable service with minimal maintenance.

     A variable "squeegee up" delay (up to 10 seconds) allows the stencil to peel off behind the squeegee for off contact applications involving a viscous material.  To help users obtain the best print images possible, an adjustable carriage return delay can be employed, depending on the specific characteristics of the materials used.

Compact, Versatile

Because of its tremendous flexibility, the TF-100 offers exceptional cost/value advantages.  The printer can accommodate a wide range of substrates, including ceramic and FR-4, and materials ranging from cermet and polymer thick film to solder paste, epoxies, and solder mask.  A frame adapter plated for the TF-100 enables it to accept all standard stencil frames including 5" x 5", 5" x 7, 8" x 10", and 12" x 12" (305mm x 305mm).

Fast, Easy Setup and Cleanup

The TF-100 offers two unique featues that facilitate setup.  MPS's unique mylar alignment system prvides rapid one-print registration of an pattern.  In addition, MPS's unique 3-point frame registration system simplifies stencil removal and cleaning.  This feature permits the re-installation of the same stencil after cleaning without pattern re-alignment.  Independent dial adjustments for screen height (snap-off) and squeegee down stop further facilitate setup.


A pneumatically raised print head with a stencil "tilt-away" feature provides full access to the stencil and squeegee assembly for stencil replacement and cleanup.  In addition, because the TF-100 is designed with a single squeegee and pre-set hop over, setup and cleanup are fast and easy. The single squeegee design also increases the squeegee stroke length for maximum print area in all modes.  The TF-100 is known as the most operator friendly screen printer on the market.
