PCB Circuit Board Plotters | LPKF ProtoMat S103

Supplier: Embedded Logic Solutions

LPKF ProtoMat circuit board plotters form a coordinated system that combines advanced machine technology and powerful CAM software, for the in-house manufacturing of prototype PCBs. LPKF plotters can solve your most complex design tasks, such as multilayer, through-hole and SMT board prototyping.

Price Guide: POA

The ProtoMat S103 LPKF plotter can solve your most complex design tasks, such as multilayer, through-hole and SMT board prototyping.

High performance plotter for RF and microwave circuitry and non-contact processing of surface sensitive materials. The ProtoMat S103 is extremely fast and accurate with a spindle speed of 100,000rpm, a max. travel speed of 150mm/s and a resolution of 0.5μm. This ensures accuracy required for milling and drilling ultra fine structures.

The touchless, pneumatic depth limiter allows the processing of delicate surfaces and, soft and flexible substrates. The S103 also carefully de-panels irregular shaped flexible circuit boards from larger boards.

2.5-dimensional operation with Z-axis control

The sophisticated Z-axis drive makes the ProtoMat S103 perfect for finishing front panels and housings as well as depth milling microwave PCBs. Even machining populated PCBs is no problem at all.

100.000 rpm spindle motor

The ProtoMat S103 is extremely fast and accurate with a spindle speed of 100.000 rpm, a max. travel speed of 150 mm/s and a resolution of 0.5 μm. This ensures the accuracy required for drilling and milling ultra fine structures – especially for high-end applications in the RF- and microwave field.

Dispensing

CircuitPro turns raw CAD data into a dataset for populating the circuit board with soldering paste with no additional expense. The software wizard guides the user through the individual process steps. An internal computation accounts for the pad shape and size to ensure each pad has the right amount of soldering paste. This is further achieved through proven process parameters. The paste is applied with the built-in dispenser, all without having to convert the machine.
