LPKF’s ProtoMat D104 circuit board plotter offers interesting extensions and new features. The table-top unit, equipped with mechanical tools and a laser system, boasts new hardware components and improved software.
The new D104 is recommended for HF applications requiring high geometric precision. The ProtoMat D104 has not only mechanical drilling and milling tools but also a laser tool. Automatic changeover to the laser (laser class 1) occurs when no smaller mechanical tool is available.
The laser tool eliminates the need for high-precision micromilling tools, thereby lowering the consumption costs of the D104. The final version includes numerous new features: contactless milling depth setting, contactless working depth limiter, a 100,000-rpm spindle, a vacuum table, and a measuring and vision system, for example. The D104 is available now.
