First fast PCB rolls off Speedboard's Kwik process

Keywords: Printed circuit boards

Windsor-based PCB manufacturer Speedboard has turned out its first customer board on its fast turn Kwikboard&#153 prototyping system–in less than 24 hs and for free!

The bare prototype PCB was manufactured in less than 4h directly from the customer's CAD file using the new Kwikboard system undergoing evaluation at Speedboard. Next the double sided board was screen printed using a Kapton&#153 stencil produced in just 30min on the Kwikboard machine, then assembled in Speedboard's fast turn surface mount assembly shop and delivered to the customer within 24h. The compact Kwikboard machine integrates sophisticated micro etching, curing and drilling phases. The dry process uses cured conductive polymers for interconnect and eliminates photo tool time and costs. www.speedboard.co.uk
