LPKF MicroLine 2000 S
Precision Cutting for Printed Circuit Boards and Cover Layers
LPKF MicroLine 2000 S
The LPKF MicroLine 2000 systems can process even highly complicated tasks with printed circuit boards (PCBs). They are available in variants for cutting assembled PCBs, flexible PCBs and cover layers.
Process advantages due to LPKF MicroLine 2000 systems
Compared to conventional tools, laser processing offers a compelling series of advantages.
The laser process is completely software-controlled. Varying materials or cutting contours are easily taken into account through adapting the processing parameters and laser paths.
In the case of laser cutting with the UV laser, no appreciable mechanical or thermal stresses occur.
The laser beam merely requires a few µm as a cutting channel. More components can thus be placed on a panel.
The system software differentiates between operation in production and setting up processes. That clearly reduces instances of faulty operation.
The fiducial recognition by the integrated vision system is done in the latest version around 100% faster than before.
MicroLine 2000 S - Cutting Assembled Circuit Boards
The UV laser cuts substrates in the immediate vicinity of sensitive components or strip conductors - without mechanical stress. Smaller components can thus be produced with a noticeably higher assembly density up to the edge of the PCB - and at the same time the process reduces the reject rate.
Circuit board thickness up to 1.6 mm
Close to strip conductors or components
Optimal utilization of the substrate
Integration in MES Solutions
The MicroLine 2000 S seamlessly integrates into existing manufacturing execution systems (MESs). The laser system delivers operative parameters, machine data, tracking & tracing values and information about individual production runs.
