Fabrication Principle LPKF Laser Direct Structuring System 3D Design In-house 3D design of parts Autocad used to produce .step files which can be imported to LPKF system. Autocad used to produce .dwg files for fabrication in mechanical workshop. LPKF Laser Direct Structuring System 3D Part Fabrication In-house mechanical workshop fabrication from 3D designs. Parts fabricated from metals or plastic materials.

3D designs can be used to fabricate parts using standard 3D printers LPKF Laser Direct Structuring System Conductive layer design Autocad produces .stp files with both the 3D part and associated conductive layer. LPKF system used .stp file to laser write the conductive layer on a ProtoPaint epoxy layer which is applied to 3D part surface. LPKF Laser Direct Structuring System Part Coating ProtoPaint epoxy layer. Spray coating of 3D part

surface. Multiple layer build up to produce a smooth surface finish. Low temperature oven bake to cure epoxy. Coating on conductive and non conductive materials. Possible materials include LPKF Laser Direct Structuring System Laser Direct Structuring Laser writing LPKF system laser etches the conductor design in the top surface of the ProtoPaint epoxy. The laser removes some of the epoxy material exposing metal

particles in the ProtoPaint layer. These metal particles can act as a seed layer for deposition of Cu layer. LPKF Laser Direct Structuring System Laser Direct Structuring Protopaint Metal particles exposed by the laser Copper, palladium, Chromium and Magnesium Seed Layer LPKF Laser Direct Structuring System Copper plating Electroless copper plating of seed layer exposed by laser etching of the ProtoPaint top surface. Layer thickness is a timetemperature dependent build up of copper.

LPKF Laser Direct Structuring System Copper plating LPKF Laser Direct Structuring System Copper plating Test coupons used to check track resistance and isolation between tracks. Different track and gap widths were designed to look at the effect of this on electrical measurements. Typical track resistance of <1 ohm Typical isolation of > 2K ohm Part Type 200 m TG Plating
