Awesome new piece of capitol equipment, so much better than the T-Tech 5000 we have. Not the the T-Tech is a bad machine (I still love the T-Tech too) it just all manual set-ups, the LPKF is totally automatic just hit mill and it changes all bit and depth automatically. Plus the S63 has a camera on-board for inspection and feedback loop that will track fiducial, so easy multilayer boards. Also this has the dispenser unit that can apply solder paste. Total control over the Z axis we can even mill 3D objects in aluminium.
Pretty intuitive got my first board done in about 1 hour (8 min to mill board) Once I figured out the software it's pretty easy. So far I've only done single sided board but soon to have two sided done next week. I did have a problem with the camera but a upgrade on software fixed it.
The all-rounder in the LPKF ProtoMat S series is great for virtually any job in in-house prototyping. The ProtoMat S63 masters 2.5-dimensional mS63 Setupaterial machining and features a faster spindle speed of 60.000 rpm
