LPKF – Laser & Electronics Precision Machines

Designs and Manufactures Products/Solutions for PCB Printed Circuit Board technology and microelectronics. Products include Rapid PCB Prototyping, Solar Cell Technology, Precision Drives, Laser-Direct-Structuring and others.

LPKF – Laser & Electronics Precision Machines

The range of PCB prototyping has now been supplemented with the LPKF ProtoMat D104 with an integrated high-precision UV laser. The ProtoMat D104 combines the best of two worlds and adds new machining options such as depaneling of flex and rigid-flex boards and machining of fired ceramics. As well as the precise geometries with straight side walls required in RF circuits to PCB prototyping.

LPKF - Mechanical and Laser Machining in One System

LPKF ProtoMat D104 – Mechanical and Laser Machining in One System

The ProtoMat D104 includes a non-contact sensor for automated tool depth adjustment allowing for unattended operations. An integrated vacuum table holds the substrate firmly in place. A vision system can read in material positions and measure the structuring results.

The integrated UV laser extends the range of possible applications: With a focus size of just 15 µm, minimum PCB track widths of 50 μm and spaces of 15 μm can be achieved.

Silicones are polymers that include silicon together with carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, and sometimes other chemical elements.

Silicone at Wikipedia

Frederick Kipping was the chemist who pioneered the study of the organic compounds of silicon (Organosilicons), and invented the term silicone.


You know that Silicones play an important role to electronics manufacturing. When you want to Insulate a Power Device from the heatsink, Silpad is used in place of Mica. In some situations, where a higher temperature is expected, Mica or Alumina is inevitable, but these are fragile.

Silicone shrink sleeves, Silicone Insulating Sheaths or Surfaces, provide good electrical insulation and Thermal stability to survive in the industrial environment.
