The LPKF ProtoPlace E4 is an ergonomically designed, one-hand operation pick & place system for the professional assembly of SMT printed circuit board prototypes and small batch projects. The ProtoPlace E4 quickly assembles SMT boards, with the user controlling each step of the assembly process through an LCD display.

  • Precise fine-pitch component assembly
  • Camera system aids component positioning
  • Flexible work area via magnetic PCB holders

A camera system coupled with the display ensures easy and accurate component positioning control, so the ProtoPlace E4 can precisely assemble complex circuits. The components are safely removed from the component trays or integrated tape feeders via vacuum needle. The ergonomically formed placement head is guided to the appropriate point above the circuit board, the component is placed, and the vacuum is deactivated – all very easily with just one hand.
