Stencil Cutting Device

Shaikh Mohammad Nazim

Present process of preparing stencils (to print patterns on fabric) is by punching holes with hand-held needles. This is very time-consuming, involves a lot of drudgery and is painful. Skilled labor is required for performing this task. In addition, this traditional method can harm the eyes of the workers in the long run.

Stencil cutting device mechanizes this process by attaching a simple mechanism with a small electric motor. The machine is user – friendly and easy to use and eliminates the need for skilled labour. It is an ergonomically designed pen-like device having a speed controller and a regulator to adjust the distance kept between two holes.

The stencil cutter has a needle operated by a motor, whose speed can be controlled. Using the up and down motion of the needle, stencil for imprinting the desired design on the cloth can be easily made on the butter paper. This may reduce the time spent by nearly 100 times.
