The LPKF ProtoMat® S-Series

PCBs on demand, right in your lab

LPKF's ProtoMat® family of benchtop PCB prototyping systems provide the ideal in-house research and development solution for virtually any engineering environment. Every LPKF ProtoMat® is built to be the best of its class, with thousands of the individually calibrated systems installed world-wide. It's no surprise to hear LPKF customers explain that their ProtoMat® system is the most important tool in the R&D lab.

Prototyping with LPKF ProtoMat® Systems

LPKF Laser & Electronics' benchtop prototyping systems produce high-performance boards that match or exceed the quality of outsourced PCB prototypes. With an LPKF ProtoMat® PCB milling machine, prototype PCBs can be made and tested within a single day - without the use of hazardous and messy chemical etching tanks. Any problems with the initial design can be identified early, allowing for revisions 2 & 3 to be completed in the same day!

"Thanks to our LPKF ProtoMat we took a project that should have taken 10 weeks and did it in only one week."

— Paul Clark from Honeywell C&K Systems

LPKF PCB prototyping systems work directly from CAD data which provides the necessary versatility needed for working on a multitude of various projects, from PCBs to RF enclosures, contour routing, controller housings, faceplates, signs, inspection templates, test fixtures, and even solder paste stencils.

Benefits

  • Reduce R&D time, and thus overall time-to-market
  • Keep designs confidential and in-house
  • Freedom to create and experiment quickly and inexpensively
  • Rework, adjust, trim and tune existing PCB's
  • Compatibility to any CAD program using standardized file formats
  • Mill, drill, and route - the ProtoMat® functions as a PCB router and circuit tracer
  • Convenience right in your own lab

Features and Options

  • Automatic tool change - start your project and come back to a finished board
  • Fiducial positioning camera - automatic alignment and reload
  • Vacuum table - secures thin or wavy materials
  • Through-hole plating
  • Multilayer lamination
  • Auxiliary SMT assembly equipment (pick & place, stencil printer, and reflow oven)
