Two Sides of the Same Coin
LPKF offers two processes for the professional surface finish of printed circuit boards: Solder resist with LPKF ProMask and assembly printing with LPKF ProLegend.
Solder mask and legend printing for in-house prototyping
The solder resist is - especially with SMT components - a basic requirement for safe soldering. With LPKF ProMask, a professional solder resist mask can be quickly and effectively applied to already structured circuit boards.
The solder resist mask is printed from the CAD program onto a transparent foil, transferred to the printed circuit board and developed. In just four steps, the structured circuit board is given a perfect surface finish in just a few minutes for soldering without short circuits.
The legend printing follows the same principle: ProMask and ProLegend are supplied with all necessary tools and consumables for a perfect result.
LPKF ProMask and LPKF ProLegend are essential for fast, simple and cost-effective PCB prototyping or small series production. A photographic exposure process transfers all structures or lettering exactly to the printed circuit board.
The advantages of LPKF ProMask:
- Fast, simple and cost-effective
- Clean electrical insulation
- Perfect protection of the printed circuit board against corrosion and oxidation
The advantages of LPKF ProLegend:
- High adhesive strength against cleaning agents
- Simple procedure like LPKF ProMask
- Minimum letter height of 2 mm
