Post subject: CNC Milling CU clad board for PCB prototype
fabrication Posted: Tue Feb 15, 2005 8:03 pm
I am looking into
purchasing a Sharp 9x42 3-axis CNC mill.
I have since been given further justification by hearing of other
employees desire to quickly fab RF-circuits on copper clad FR-4.
Their are CNC machines available specifically for this purpose,
but I would like to be able to accomplish the same job with a standard
CNC mill. The only advantage I know of to using a dedicated machine
is that some of the models out there have the option to add plated
through holes on the fly.
Does anyone have any experiance in

the thought that I would be able help out on this, but the CNC milling
machines that we use are all LPKF made machines and are designed
to actually mill out circuitry.
I have no idea if a standard
CNC machine would make a decent PCB board. Then again, I don't know
any real reason why it couldn't. I guess it all depends on the operator
and the ability to convert the routing data to a machine language
that the CNC mill interface box understands.
As for plating
holes on the fly, I only wish it was that easy.
