The ProtoMat S63 is ideal for printed circuit board prototyping applications ranging from digital to RF, offering a great mix of performance and price. The system is capable of producing mutliple design iterations in a single day and has the features that make in-house prototyping the choice method for PCB R&D.
The ProtoMat S63 works straight from CAD data to process boards. Features include a fiducial recognition camera which aids the user with front-to-back alignment for double-sided and multilayer PCBs, and an automatic tool changer for expedited board production. In conjunction with a 60,000 rpm motor and high accuracy, it's easy to see why the ProtoMat S63 is LPKF's best-selling PCB milling machine.
4 mil traces and spacing are common on a wide range of materials with drill holes as small as 6 mil; smaller features may be possible dependent on tooling, copper thickness, substrate type and peel strength. The ProtoMat S63 also includes software controlled 2.5D milling for pocket milling and cutting or drilling of aluminum, brass, copper and plastics allowing for metal core PCB development. Solder paste dispensing is also a standard feature if a clean/dry compressed air supply is provided.
LPKF CircuitPro software is included with easy to follow processing guide wizards and updated GUI. This simplifies the process of arriving at a completed design with the machine prompting the operator during each milling, drilling and cutting stage. A comprehensive parameter library for many commonly used materials supports the users in their own projects.
The LPKF ProtoMat PCB milling systems utilize the highest quality stepper motors, spindle motors and H-shaped guide rails mounted to a durable frame to ensure pristine milling, drilling and cutting quality for years of operation. Spindle runout below 5µm and an internal calibration completed on each machine is standard with over 40 years of German engineering experience applied in development of each model.
