The LPKF Contac RS and MiniContac RS are through-hole electroplating systems specially developed for the professional production of prototype and small batch production printed circuit boards. The systems are ideal for any rapid PCB prototyping situation, especially small runs and tight work locations. No analysis or special chemical knowledge are needed.
The systems use switchable reverse pulse plating, producing more uniform copper plating for difficult aspect ratios and smaller holes.
The Contac RS offers the largest board size capacity of any LPKF plating solution, plating boards as large as 460 x 305 mm (18.0" x 12.0"), as well as a heated tank for chemical tin plating (tin plating is excellent for optimal soldering of through-hole plated circuit boards and oxidation protection). A sink bath is connected via an external water supply for the cleaning step.
The LPKF MiniContac RS electroplating system handles PCBs as large as 230 x 330 mm (9.0" x 13.0"). The system is completely closed and needs no external connection.
