WILSONVILLE, Ore. — LPKF Laser & Electronics' ProtoMat S62 circuit board plotter delivers advanced PCB prototyping capabilities with reduced board production time and increased overall accuracy. Combining a maximum milling speed of 150 mm/sec, a system resolution of 0.25 µm and a 62,000-rpm spindle motor, the plotter produces fine traces for all types of PCBs, including RF and microwave boards.
Features include integrated head lighting and a 10-position automatic milling tool changer for unattended operation. Its motorized Z-axis drive independently moves the plotter milling head over multiple axes, providing 3-D plotting capability for machining front panels and housings. It does not require external compressed air or chemicals, and is enclosed in a soundproof acoustic cabinet for safe operation in a standard office or engineering environment. Optional accessories include a fiducial recognition camera system for automatic front-to-back alignment, and an integrated vacuum table top for securely mounting PCB substrates on the plotter.
