Last year at the Hanover Fair LPKF showcased a laser structuring system for high-volume production. This year the company is pleased to present a process for close-to-production prototyping for 3D-circuitry carriers. At the Hannover Fair 2011 LPKF will introduce a process for prototypes and small series for the LDS-method.

A 3D plastic component is coated with the LPKF ProtoPaint LDS lacquer. This coating contains special LDS-additives. The structuring of the component is carried out using a new laser system. The three-dimensional guided laser beam activates the additive in the lacquer and defines the areas for the subsequent electroless metallization. A pre-series version of this laser system will be presented at this year’s Hannover Fair.
"ProtoPaint coating, combined with the new LPKF laser structuring system and suitable laboratory plating creates an opportunity for further growth of the LDS technology," explains Dr. Ingo Bretthauer, CEO of LPKF Laser & Electronics AG.About LPKF
