LPKF Protomat C-100/HF
LPKF Protomat C-100/HF
New Jersey, USA
LPKF C-100 HF PCB milling and CNC routing machine. Purchased refurbished from factory in December 2013. Everything is set up and working. Included is the dust extractor, air hookups and laptop with software installed.
We purchased this machine planning to use for production, however our business platform has changed and we are doing things differently. We can help you set this up and get it running in your facility. We are still covered by the manufacturer support period and can provide all software and assistance needed. Potential buyer is also welcome to visit our facility in Livingston, N.J. for demonstration and understanding.
I am including the laptop because the machine requires a serial port to operate. We tried using the USB-Serial adapters and these did not work with the machine. Laptop is a Dell notebook with Windows XP installed. Everything has been set up and works "out of the box" and should work as soon as set up at your facility.
If you do not want the laptop, then we will take $100 off the sale price. The factory confirmed they will re-host the CircuitCAM 6 software.
The machine requires a constant air supply of 80 PSI to operate. I am including all of the hookups, adapters, and pressure regulator that I used with a 1/4-inch quick disconnect.
--- Accessories Included:
The dust extractor is used and will also be included. It works well and there are additional filters supplied.
Accessories: two routing/drill bit kits, baseboard material sheets. We also printed and bound the manuals, which will be included.
Terms and support: The machine is being sold "as is" with no warranty expressed or implied. Sale is final.
--- Software included:
CircuitCAM 6.1 (for importing DXF and setting up routing). Software license has been reset and should install with no issue. License information card will be provided.
Board Master 5.0 (for controlling the machine). It is already installed on the laptop.
Disc or flash drive containing the software installers will be provided.
Local pickup is available and preferred due to the heavy and delicate nature of the item. We are in Northern New Jersey.
The original packing materials for the machine have been saved and would be used to ship the machine at 70 lbs.
Additionally, the dust extractor and laptop would ship separately, at 20 lbs and 10 lbs, respectively.
No "handling" fees. Rates are by weights mentioned only.
Will ship to USA only, by either UPS, FedEx, or Postal, whichever is best way. We can ship on your UPS or FedEx account.
Please DO NOT use the shipping calculator as it will be inaccurate. Send me a message with your ZIP code and we will prepare your shipping quote.

--- From manufacturer website:
This system, especially designed for RF and microwave PWB's, takes prototyping to extremes. A motor speed of maximal 100,000 rpm allows the widest range of tools including 6 mil endmills for high performance designs.
In addition the ProtoMat® C100/HF is extremely versatile. A contact-less air bearing depth limiter is ideal for use on flexible or gold plated circuits. Micrometer depth adjustment can be used to mill precise pockets into brass or aluminum backed circuits or to route beryllium copper sheets.
The ProtoMat® C100/HF is fully compatible with multilayer applications and all common materials including FR4, Rogers RO 4000 and TMM®, as well as PTFE based substrates such as RT/duroid® and UltraLAM®, TLX®, TLY® and many others.
