LPKF ProtoLaser 100 combines the capabilities of an advanced pcb
milling system and circuit board plotter with a sophisticated
laser. The ProtoLaser 100 is an ideal system for the laser structuring,
pcb milling and drilling of circuit carriers. A special laser
removes the copper layer between the conductive strips without
affecting the substrate. Printed circuit board prototypes with
50 µm (2 mil) structures can be manufactured quickly and flexibly.
Completely integrated LPKF software automatically manages all
tool parameters, as well as the interaction between laser and
mechanical machining. For more information on this combination
pcb milling system and laser equipment, visit our website at www.lpkfusa.com.
The ability of LPKF to produce
prototypes, multi-layers and test circuits that are equal to outsourced
boards, combined with their time and cost advantages over pcb
prototyping outsourcing, makes our in-house milling technology
and related electronic equipment the perfect solution for every
electronics engineer. An array of other LPKF in-house pcb prototyping
equipment used in conjunction with our plotters gives customers
the ability to design and fabricate prototypes with up to eight
layers. We invite you to learn more about LPKF’s in-house pcb
prototyping equipment and products. Just click on www.lpkfusa.com

The LPKF Laser & Electronics AG
is developing flexible systems and pcb quickturn process solutions
for demanding tasks in printed circuit board technology and microelectronics.
The company was founded 1976 and started successfully by offering
unorthodox procedures for pcb quickturn inhouse prototyping. In
the beginning of the 90's, LPKF extended its range of pcb quickturn
products with laser systems for the printed circuit boards manufacturing
and circuits for microelectronics. Altogether the company employs
at present approx. 220 employees. World-wide LPKF customers are
accompanied by LPKF subsidiaries and/or commercial representations.

The pcb milling machine delivers
significant reductions in the cnc production time of prototype
PCBs. The maximum cnc machining speed is now doubled compared
to prior top-of-the-line cnc systems, and can reach up to 4" per
second. The integrated smart following-vector path generation
allows the pcb milling machine to maintain a higher average speed.
The combination of both of these features pushes the cnc performance
factor of this pcb milling machine 2-3 times. Now, prototype production
of multilayer circuit boards is accomplished in-house comfortably.
The resolution of the H100 has been increased five-fold to 1µm.
With its 100,000 rpm milling motor, the plotter can create 3 mil
tracks with 4 mil spacing.
Today, more than ever, pcb prototypes
are crucial to the electronics design process. In this world of
blazing time-to-market production requirements and fierce R&D
expectations, effective prototyping is critical to success. Yet,
in spite of the need for effective pcb prototypes, engineers still
find themselves constrained by the time and cost limitations inherent
in outsourcing their pcb prototypes. As a result, an increasing
number of engineers are adopting LPKF’s in-house prototyping solution
because of its enhanced capabilities in technology and clear advantages
over outsourcing products. E-mail us through our web site for
more prototype assembly information.
LPKF's ProtoMat family
of systems provides an ideal pcb prototyping machine for virtually
any engineering environment. Every LPKF ProtoMat® pcb prototyping
machine is built to be the best of its class, with thousands of
installed systems to prove it. Each pcb prototyping machine has
its own special system features. Some prototype machines feature
milling, drilling, routing and depanelization; some feature a
new generation of advanced boards and circuit board plotters.
Others have automatic tool change and are ideal for exotic substrates
and flex. The LPKF Laser & Electronics AG is developing systems
and process solutions for demanding tasks in printed circuit board
technology and microelectronics.
