LPKF Laser & Electronics
for printed circuits
The LPKF ProtoLaser S4 features the new LPKF design, combining a classy look with clever solutions for operation and maintenance. Integration of the control PC is optional.
Cost-Effectiveness Built In
The ProtoLaser S4 is a valuable tool in the electronics lab. It can quickly and accurately generate fine structures and uses a special procedure for ablating large areas. The laser process requires no masks or tools to produce one-offs or individual marks.
Expanded Process Window
Switching to a green laser wavelength increases the range of applications. A green laser is much less likely to burn the substrate. It can also reliably machine inhomogeneous metal layers up to 6 μm in thickness – e. g., boards with fully metallized surfaces following galvanic via plating. The ProtoLaser S4 can cut rigid or flexible substrates efficiently with thicknesses of up to 0.8 mm.
The LPKF ProtoLaser S4 has a newly designed camera and image processing system that has been optimized for circuit board prototyping. A higher resolution and faster detection algorithms accelerate the manufacturing process.
