LPKF Laser & Electronics' entry-level
ProtoMat S43 is a milling machine that provides an introduction into the world
of professional rapid PCB prototyping. For those with an occasional use and/or
limited budget, the ProtoMat S43 has the precision and capacity for drilling,
de-paneling and structuring printed circuit boards and engraving front panels. It
comes equipped with a 40,000 RPM spindle motor, a working area of 9 x 12 inch,
and has the ability to produce multiple design iterations in the same day. The LPKF
ProtoMat S63 circuit board plotter has 2.5D material processing such as routing
of pockets, and features a programmable spindle speed of up to 60,000 RPM,
making it useful for drilling test adapters or housing enclosures. New to the
system is a mounted dispenser which applies soldering paste to the circuit
board automatically with minimum data preparation, and an intelligent fiducial
camera, a 15-position automatic tool change and an automatic milling width adjustment;
letting nothing stand in the way of producing precise double-sided and
multilayer circuit boards right in the electronics lab.
ProtoMat S103 is equipped for all application areas including RF and Microwave prototypes.
Meeting standards in geometry and accuracy, the special carbide tools produce
straight sidewalls and reduce penetration depth to allow milling and drilling
of delicate material. In addition the S103 cuts irregularly shaped flexible
circuit boards from large panels and its superior features include a 100,000
RPM spindle motor for milling ultra fine structures, a fiducial recognition
camera, a vacuum table to securely mount substrates on the plotter, and a pneumatic
milling depth limiter.
BMW has already incorporated more than 10,000 3D-printed parts in the Rolls-Royce Phantom and intends to expand the use of 3D printing in its cars even more in the future. Meanwhile, Daimler has started using additive manufacturing for producing spare parts in Mercedes-Benz Trucks.
Researchers have been developing a number of nano- and micro-scale technologies that can be used for implantable medical technology for the treatment of disease, diagnostics, prevention, and other health-related applications.
SABIC's lightweighting polycarbonate glazing materials have appeared for the first time in a production car: the rear quarter window of Toyota's special edition 86 GRMN sports car, where they're saving 50% of its weight compared to conventional glass.
