The LPKF ProtoMat S43 is the entry-level model in the ProtoMat S-series. It can be upgraded in two steps to have the same features as the top of the line model, the S103. The precision and capacity of the compact system ensure quick and easy PCB prototype production in mere hours – easily handling multiple cycles in one day. The S43 is the perfect entry into the world of professional Rapid PCB Prototyping, especially for occasional use or limited budgets.
40,000 rpm milling spindle
At a maximum travel speed of 150 mm per second (approx. 6"/s) and a spindle speed of 40,000 rpm the S43 is the perfect entry level model for high-quality circuit board prototypes produced in-house.
Upgradeable to ProtoMat S63 and S103
Upgrading to the S63 includes a milling head with 60,000 rpm spindle, camera, 15-position tool changer, automatic milling width adjustment, dispenser and automatic width adjustment. Upgrading to the S103 includes a milling head with 100,000 rpm spindle, pneumatic non-contact working depth limiter, 15-position tool changer, automatic milling width adjustment, camera, dispenser and vacuum table.
Single- and double-sided PCBs on different materials
The main area of application for the LPKF ProtoMat S43 is fabricating high-quality professional FR4-based PCB prototypes. The included software reliably and accurately converts the original CAD data to PCB production data.
