Just a few more days and we will have left 2023 behind us. Despite severe challenges, LPKF has developed further on its way to becoming the leading developer and manufacturer of systems for the electronics industry. Hardly any of the important players in the industry can ignore LPKF technology – nor do they want to.
Environmental considerations are becoming increasingly important in PCB prototyping. Instead of etching chemicals, companies and research institutions rely on chemical-free processes. The range of systems - from simple tabletop structurers to picosecond lasers - promises efficient and economical production of circuit boards: classic solid substrates, flexible PCBs or multilayers, HF materials with special requirements for precise geometry. The ProtoLasers and the MultiPress S4 were able to establish new applications and processes, particularly with flexible materials.
LPKF has continued to develop its systems for mechanical or laser structuring in 2023 and at the same time has also optimized the entire process. Best example: The LPKF CircuitPro RP system software now supports all current ProtoLasers and makes processing even difficult applications even safer.
In recent periods, supply bottlenecks have characterized the market. The stabilization of the supply chain makes a significant contribution to looking back on a successful financial year.
