For rigid and flex PCBs Depaneling laser systems
The Cuttingmaster family from LPKF consists of laser depaneling systems for rigid and flex PCBs. The systems are available with different laser sources, power levels and two different working areas.
The Cuttingmaster 2000 series is a cost-effective laser depaneling system. It has a compact footprint while it still provides an effective working area to handle panels up to 350 mm x 250 mm (13.8” x 9.8”). The machine is available either as a stand-alone system or as an in-line configuration with integrated conveyor system. The high-throughput and clean cutting quality is comparable to mechanical depaneling methods, but with none of the dust or debris, while the investment costs are comparatively low.
The Cuttingmaster 3000 series provides a larger working area to handle panels up to 500 mm x 350 mm (19.7” x 13.8”) as well as a high speed and high precision linear motor drive system with a rigid granite construction for high positioning accuracy. This system is also available in a stand-alone configuration or in-line integration for SMT lines.
The systems come with the software Circuitpro, which is designed for easy-to-use operation without expert knowledge. The software is compatible with all standard data formats and standard interfaces used in PCB production. Custom MES connectivity, multi-fiducial detection, bad-board recognition and full product traceability are also available in the SMT assembly process.
The ability to integrate a wide range of different laser sources with different wavelengths and pulse durations in both the nanosecond and picosecond range makes these systems suitable for a wide range applications and materials including drilling applications.
