With its broad product range LPKF is one of the world market leaders in the "in-house rapid PCB prototyping" and "StencilLaser" services
Established in 1976, LPKF Laser & Electronics manufactures machines and laser systems used in circuit board and microelectronics fabrication, medical technology, the automotive sector, and the production of solar cells.
LPKF’s worldwide headquarters is located in Garbsen, Germany outside of Hannover which maintains North American headquarters in Portland, OR.
LPKF's ProtoMat family of systems provides an ideal PCB prototyping machine for virtually any engineering environment. Every LPKF ProtoMat® PCB prototyping machine is built to be the best of its class, with thousands of installed quickturn systems to prove it. Each PCB milling machine system has its own special system features. Some prototype milling machines feature milling, drilling, routing and depanelization; some feature a new generation of advanced boards and circuit board plotters. Other prototype milling machines have automatic tool change and are ideal for exotic substrates and flex. The LPKF Laser & Electronics AG is developing quickturn systems and process solutions for demanding tasks in printed circuit board technology and microelectronics.

Day to day, year over year, businesses are forced to make critical R.O.I.—related decisions that impact the future and the bottom line—some of them reactionary, some forecasted. For a growing number of electronics manufacturers, many of those decisions revolve around whether a function should be performed by an outside contractor or kept in-house. But for many companies in the RF/microwave industry, this decision is often concerned with continuing to employ an outside PCB fabricator for prototype PCBs, or to make a $10,000 to $100,000 investment in an inhouse, rapid PCB prototyping machine that may represent a key competitive advantage....
