WILSONVILLE, Ore., 3 May 2007. LPKF Laser & Electronics in Wilsonville, Ore., is introducing unveils the ProtoLaser 200 laser system for prototyping and on-demand production of printed circuit boards.

This enclosed laser-based system works off of CAD data to produce circuits on a variety of materials, including ceramic- and PTFE-based substrates. The protective cabinet allows for a Class 1 laser safety rating and prevents any particles or evaporation from leaving the work area.

The performance and speed of this system makes it applicable to RF and microwave engineering environment including antennas, RFID, filters, and single-layer components.

A visible laser image is projected on to the work surface, outlining the preferred work area, prior to the actual laser structuring, while alignment of two-sided artwork is automated with a fiducial recognition camera. This vision system also allows the ProtoLaser 200 to automatically set the proper laser focal point, visually inspect, and align the work piece.
