VectorGuard® Stencil Mounting System

Cost-effective, High-Yield

The VectorGuard® stencil mounting system, developed by DEK, has been a popular frameless stencil choice since its invention in 2004. The revolutionary system utilizes a single reusable frame into which various stencil foils can be interchanged depending on the manufacturer’s needs. The VectorGuard® system also delivers more consistent printing by ensuring even, consistent tension across the stencil, even after many uses. Traditional mesh-mounted stencils have a tendency to sag later in their lifespan. VectorGuard® is easy to load, unload, store and clean, and requires very little storage space.

A Highly Effective VectorGuard® Alternative

BlueRing’s own Apshen is an effective, simple, frameless quick mount stencil, which is fully compatible with VectorGuard® systems. Apshen has a very reliable tension system, are quick to attach and detach, and make a solid connection for the life of the stencil. The inward edge of the cap is beveled to a thin edge so as not to interfere with printing. Overall, Apshen stencils are comparable to VectorGuard® stencils, work in the VectorGuard® system, and are more cost-effective than VectorGuard® stencils.
