LPKF ProtoMat S104

  • ProtoMat S104 - LPKF


The ProtoMat S104 is particularly fast and precise due to the 100 000 RPM spindle motor which allows for higher travel speeds with a mechanical resolution of just 0.5 μm. In combination with the machine’s stable granite base, this ensures optimum accuracy for drilling and milling of even very fine structures. Thanks to the high-performance spindle and vacuum table, it is also suitable for RF applications and thin laminates as well as substrates with sensitive surfaces (conductor path widths as small as 100 μm on FR4 18/18 Cu).

Automated operation makes things easy for users of the ProtoMat S104. Sensor-controlled, the material and copper thickness are measured automatically and enable the exact calculation of the required milling depth. The machine, which is well equipped with 20 tool positions, automatically changes the corresponding tools during the production process. The automatic milling width adjustment also ensures that any conical tools being used will always have a constant and correct width.

If required, the integrated dispenser can automatically apply solder paste to solder pads without any additional data preparation. The short set-up time and the operator-free machining enable the user to achieve short process times. With its Z-axis drive, the ProtoMat S104 is ideal for machining front panels and enclosures – or for pocket milling in printed circuit boards. It is also easy to machine assembled PCBs and to produce plastic or aluminum enclosures and faceplates.
