An easy-to-use cost-effective solution for producing professionally masked PCBs in an in-house prototyping environment.
The LPKF ProMask® is an easy-to-apply green solder resist mask. This professional finish, ideal for all rapid PCB projects, is especially important for SMT projects where lines are very close and circuit isolation/insulation is critical. The ProMask® system requires very little training and no prior experience to master.
The LPKF ProMask® finishes prototype PCBs professionally and helps protect traces and prevent short circuits from soldering conventional though-hole or SMT components.
The LPKF ProMask® includes all the necessary instructions, tools, and supplies. All consumables are premeasured and individually sealed.
All remnants from the ProMask® process are rendered environmentally harmless with an included Ph conditioning powder. Disposal is safe and simple.
In-house PCB prototyping moves circuits from design to prototype to market faster by eliminating production delays and the high costs associated with outside vendors. Additionally, all designs remain securely within the organization.
All of the necessary accessories for the application of the ProMask® consumable materials.
Transfer the artwork pattern to the PCB surface in approximately thirty seconds.
Pre-dry the PCB and harden the resist in thirty minutes using this hot air oven. The oven offers an integrated time switch clock and a precise temperature regulator.
Includes ProMask® lacquer gel, developing foils, and developer.
