Press for Multilayer Production
- In-house production of multilayer prototypes with rigid, rigid flex, flexible and RF materials
- Advanced intuitive graphical user interface with touch screen controls and guidance
- Up to five freely programmable temperature/pressure process steps
- Vacuum function and fume exhaust
- Stand-alone design; easily moveable on wheels
8-layer Multilayer in Your Own Lab
A high packing density and the corresponding high number of circuits or additional tasks that need to be performed by the circuit board require a multilayer design of complex prototypes which can accommodate circuits in several layers.
The new concept with an intuitive graphical user inter-face offers an easy entry to multilayer production for a novice and opens up possibilities for setting up the process for next-generation materials. The three to five step process with different ramp-controlled tempera-tures and pressures can also utilize vacuum and rapid cooling.
The single-phase operation, built-in vacuum and hyd-raulic pump, connectivity, and predefined process setups for common materials make the stand-alone LPKF MultiPress S4 the most efficient system for multi-layer pressing in your own lab. Any fumes or odors can be removed directly via an exhaust connection to the ventilation system.
Systems for multilayer manufacturing
The LPKF ProtoMat S104 is the system of the ProtoMat S family with automatic tool change, vacuum table and camera for optical registration of the register marks. Automatic milling width adjustment ensures precise PCB structures with identical milling channels.
With the LPKF ProtoLaser S4, it only takes a few minutes from the layout to the structured circuit board - exact geometries on many substrates. The ProtoLaser S4 can also reliably process copper surfaces with inhomogeneities up to 6 μm and is ideally suited for the production of multilayers.
The stand-alone system with intuitive software, predefined process settings for common materials and a large touchscreen makes laminating very easy. The vacuum function and precise temperature and pressure profiles are the key to success.
The electrical connections between the individual layers are made by LPKF ProConduct, a chemical-free system specially developed for laboratory use. If there are more than four layers, galvanic through-hole plating is recommended.
With multilayers, the connection of layers with vias is of particular importance. The classical galvanic process is obligatory for six layers or more. The LPKF Contac S4 table system is easy and safe to operate without chemical knowledge.
