LPKF Laser & Electronics AG has released LPKF ProtoMat S42 circuit board plotter, a new entry-level circuit board plotter for in-house rapid PCB prototyping. This compact system provides precision and performance for quick and easy milling and drilling of single-sided and double-sided circuit board prototypes in a single day.
The LPKF ProtoMat S42 is a tool for colleges and technical institutions, allowing students and instructors to produce printed circuit boards that are production quality and chemical free, immediately in the classroom environment.
Low consumable costs, instant turnaround, and no need for external vendors encourages more practical exercises and experiments in the classroom or laboratory.
The ProtoMat S42's 42,000 RPM spindle motor makes it an entry-level performer for producing quality PCBs in-house. Easy handling can be increased with the addition of an optional fiducial recognition camera, as well as a vacuum table.
