LPKF ProtoMat D104

Mechanical and Laser Machining in One System


The range of PCB prototyping has now been supplemented with the LPKF ProtoMat D104 with an integrated high-precision UV laser. The ProtoMat D104 combines the best of two worlds and adds new machining options such as depaneling of flex and rigid-flex boards and machining of fired ceramics. As well as the precise geometries with straight side walls required in RF circuits to PCB prototyping.

Multifunctional and a High Performer

Chemical-free production of high-quality circuit boards in the R&D department has clear advantages in the time-to-market for new products. Circuit board plotters generate a complex circuitry on a metal-coated base material through insulation channels. Conductive traces are separated from the base material by insulating channels made using various tools such as milling and drilling machines. The LPKF ProtoMat D104 has perfected this functionality, exhibiting spindle speeds of up to 100 000 RPM, up to 15 auto-select tools, and a repeatability of 1 μm.

The integrated UV laser extends the range of possible applications: With a focus size of just 15 µm, minimum PCB track widths of 50 μm and spaces of 15 μm can be achieved. The smart control system and the advanced software decide independently when the precise laser or the faster mechanical tools are used - depending on the board layout.
