PCB Production with the LPKF Protomat S64 for Beginners

G-EL-005E | SGK [B]

Mill a custom PCB. 


This machine is only available in MakerSpace Garching, not in Munich (inner city location)!

This course covers the production of a double-sided printed circuit board, using the Protomat S64 PCB milling machine.

In this course you will learn how to use LPKF’s CircuitPro software to import and prepare Gerber and Excellon files for milling. Also covered is the process of screen-printing soldering paste onto a milled PCB and the use of the reflow oven. Upon successful completion of the course, you will be able to mill printed circuit boards and manufacture complex assemblies using the SMT process.

The standard process supports track widths and distances of 200 µm (100 µn with the optional MicroCutter). Basic knowledge of electrical engineering, as well as familiarity with PCB-design software is expected.

This course is a prerequisite for using equipment in the MakerSpace electronics lab!
