Desktop PCB Prototyping Machine

Key Features:

  • Multilayered rigid and flexible circuits
  • Dispensing glues and solder pastes
  • Printed Electronics
  • Pick & Place Components

SV2 from BotFactory brings the future of electronic circuit fabrication to your desktop.SV2 circuit printers allows you to prototype in minutes instead of weeks, all at the click of a button, from a bare substrate to a fully assembled and functional circuit board in a matter of minutes.

 

Each PCB Printer includes an inkjet printhead that can dispense very fine droplets of conductive ink and insulating ink, allowing you to create multilayered rigid and flexible circuits on FR-4, Kapton or any substrate of your choice.

  

In addition, each printer has two heads for dispensing glues and solder pastes, and another to pick-and-place components, allowing you to assemble PCBs right at your desktop.

Every year, millions of Electrical Engineers, Academics, Students and Hobbyists spend billions of dollars creating Printed Circuit Boards yet suffer long waiting times for their design to be fabricated. We took it upon ourselves to bring PCB prototyping tools closer to the designer, creating a product that integrates all the steps of PCB fabrication into a compact, intuitive package. Building upon the maturation of conductive nano particle inks and image recognition technology.

SAMPLES

SV2 delivers a solution at several magnitudes of cost lower than in-line manufacturing equipment, heralding one of the rare moments where the rules of manufacturing and innovation are up-ended by miniaturization.

It uses three interchangeable heads to inkjet print conductive and insulating ink, extrude dots of conductive glue or solder paste, and pick-and-place electronic components, rotating parts and correcting misalignment using computer vision.

 

The BotFactory SV2 has an onboard computer running a web browser-based software, compatible with any platform - no installation required. It provides an intuitive experience, guiding the user through the different steps with illustrations and animations.

  

 

We stand behind our product and actively improve the software of the BotFactory SV2 to better utilize the hardware. The BotFactory SV2 makes updates automatically available from our servers whenever it is connected to the internet.
