LPKF ProConduct® - Through-hole Conductivity System Description:

In-House PCB Through-Hole Plating without Chemicals

The LPKF ProConduct® introduces revolutionary technology to produce plated through-holes, which does not require a plating tank or potentially hazardous processing chemicals. This compact system is extremely fast and easy to use. Its rapid parallel processing method delivers completely safe, reliable and thermally stable via plating results for double-sided or multilayer boards.

Circuit board prototypes can be easily fabricated in-house in a single day when the LPKF ProConduct® system is combined with an LPKF ProtoMat circuit board plotter.

In-house PCB prototyping gets your designs to market faster by eliminating production delays and high costs that can occur with outside vendors. It also makes your precious design data secure by keeping it under your control.

LPKF ProConduct® uses specially-developed plating technology to rapidly plate vias as small as 0.4 mm (15 mil) up to aspect ratio of 1:4. Even smaller holes are possible under special conditions. The entire process can be completed in just a few minutes for double-sided and even multilayer boards. The electrical resistance of LPKF ProConduct® plating is extremely low with 19.2 mOhm depending on the material thickness.

Easy to handle

LPKF ProConduct® uses a specially-developed conductive polymer to quickly and easily plate vias in just a few minutes. This four-stop easy-to-learn process lends itself well to parallel processing and results in smoothly plated through-holes in a fraction of the time and cost of chemical electroplating.

Perfect Results

The LPKF ProConduct® system plates vias as small as 0.4mm (15mil) up to an aspect ratio of 1:4. Smaller holes are possible under special conditions. The basic process requires only a few minutes for double-sided and even multilayer boards. The electrical resistance of LPKF ProConduct® results in extremely low – approximately 19.2 mΩ, depending on the material thickness.

Key to in-house work

When combined with LPKF ProtoMat circuit board plotter, the LPKF ProConduct® system becomes a key component to an in-house rapid PCB prototyping solution, featuring security, flexibility, and speed.
