LPKF ProtoMat S63 Advanced Board Plotters

Upgradeable to ProtoMat S The Protomat S63 is designed to build multilayer boards when used alongside a board lamination press such as the MultiPress Sand can also be used to rework bare boards. The Gerber importer is fast and accurate, the insulation setup is intuitive, and the user has complete control over tool penetration.

Stay up to date with the latest products like this No, thanks Nice one! Yes, we’ve had very similar results with the S63 with one big difference -our support has not been crap. John Newman is a Digital Engineering contributor who focuses on 3D printing.

Dispensing The built-in dispenser applies solder paste onto the substrates fully automatically with plkf data preparation. Embedded Logic Solutions are also proudly displaying these credentials:. What are you using for through hole plating.


Each machine comes pre-loaded with software to assist with the prototyping process. The tool holder design is fragile and not-ready-for-prime-time. All parts and service have been protoomat without charge, even though we have no service contract with AccurateCNC. Suite 2, Level 3 Marsden Street, Parramatta, LPKF has worked very hard to try to make the system work.

LPFK S63 is not worth the money or effort

I looked up Burgund but didn’t immediately find the system you’re talking about. I would think the belt might be prone to fail compared to a direct spindle. And on top of all this, it costs much less than the S Since then, LPKF has updated the hardware, firmware, and host software.

Maybe we just were unlucky. Taking a look at a specific member of the S-Series, the Protomat S63 can deploy up to 15 tools automatically, which allows for the machine to run without constant supervision or repeated setup. Registration, while partially manual, is very straightforward and fast.

I am looking at getting a A! Do you have a link you could share? People also read World’s first “all-in-one” PCB tester. Embedded Logic Solutions 42 items. Posted via Mobile Device. Follow us on All times are GMT Results 1 to 8 of 8. The only thing I do not like the looks protoma is the belt driven spindle.


Unless i end up spending a lot of money. Its primary limitation compared to electroplating is that it only does vias – it does not provide a solution for through-hole component leads.

It is reasonably for me, anyway fast, very cheap, and predictable. Drilling vias and through-holes. Fortunately, AccurateCNC is a more-than-capable alternative. Thermal camera detects temperature differences on PCBs.

Just as an update. Double-row PCB terminal block with high connection density. About the Author John Newman. A lot lot cheaper than LPKF although you do need to do some etching, but i dont’ think thats a huge issue.

If a tool pickup or replacement fails, it doesn’t know – not good! That seems to be the real sticking point. Both of the labs I work at these days are ‘dry’, so electroplating is not an option.

Business registration, contact details and locations have been verified. However, AccurateCNC has also stood by their machine and improved the system so that we are no longer having any issues with it either.

The time now is I have developed a method over many years of trial and error which yields excellent, small conductive vias. The ProtoMat S63 masters 2.
