CircuitPro can read any gerber file of any CAD software dedicated to electronic development. We can also import some .dxf files. Inoveos can assist you if you have trouble exporting / importing your files.
A maintenance is recommended every 12 to 24 months depending on the use of the machine.
Yes ! Once the ProConduct paste has been cured, it can be reflow soldered at 250°C and manually soldered up to 380°C.
The depth of penetration depends on the technology used : With a mechanical solution we will go in by 60 to 100µm approximately as from the surface of the material. With a laser we will go in by approximately 10µm more than the thickness of the metallization.
We offer 3 solutions : LPKF EasyContac : copper-alloyed rivets that are inserted manually, low cost, but the minimum diameter of 0.6 internal and 0.8mm external is limiting. LPKF Proconduct : chemical-free conductive paste easy to use. However, we cannot control the thickness of the paste deposited. LPKF Contac S4: electroplating copper deposition, the result will be similar […]
Mechanical solutions are ideal for standard materials with thicknesses >200µm. However as soon as you want to do flexible circuits, or specific materials such as Rogers for example or that there is a need for traces and / or isolations <100µm, a laser becomes a must.
What is the lifetime of a tool ? The lifetime of each tool is managed statistically. CircuitPro registers the distances and once the maximum distance is reached it indicates to the user that the tool needs to be replaced. The maximum distance of wear of a tool is variable and depends of the type of […]
