The ProtoLaser U3 is an ultraviolet laser system for processing printed circuit boards. Winner of a SMT Vision Award, the ProtoLaser U3 can etch circuitry, drill holes, and depanel PCBs all in a single step.

The system works straight from CAD data to process boards. Circuit traces as small as 50 µm can be achieved, along with spacing of 25 µm. The system's advanced speed allows it to be used not only for R&D but also small-scale production.

Thanks to the high photon energy and low-stress nature of UV lasers, the ProtoLaser U3 can work with virtually any PC board substrate: FR4, fired ceramics, flexible and rigid-flex materials, transparent conductive oxide (TCO), PET, ceramics, and high-frequency RF and microwave materials (TMM, RT/duroid, Rogers 4000 series, etc.).
