LPKF ProtoLaser U3 | Versatile PCB Laser Etching

http://www.lpkfusa.com/products/pcb_prototyping/machines/protolaser_u4/ The ProtoLaser U3 shows how quickly applications can be processed. A UV laser beam can depanel individual PCBs from large circuit boards stress-free, cut LTCC and prepregs, drill holes and microvias, and structure FR4 substrates. The high pulse energy of the UV laser eliminates residue from the ablation process, resulting in geometrically precise contours. […]

Let’s Try PCB Etching!

Ben is always looking for new tools and processes to help with all the projects he builds. He’s got a CNC mill, laser cutter, and a 3-D printer, but hasn’t found a way to whip up a PCB at his shop. He’s hand wired many circuits, but this can be tedious. He’s designed PCBs in […]
