 Squink - PCB Printer

 

When you are making a new PCB design don’t you wish you could just print out the design instead of sending your Gerbers out for manufacture? BotFactory has created a PCB Printer called Squink, it prints using conductive ink and places dots of conductive adhesive where each SMD part will be placed. Best of all the machine then does a pick and place of all the parts onto the design. The entire process takes about 15 to 30 minutes depending if you want the optional heat curing to be performed. Just think of the ability to spin your board design a few times in a day. Of course this might not be right for everyone. I am not sure what the work around is to incorporate some through hole parts and vias for double sided designs. These days a double sided board is about the same cost as a single sided board but gives you much more flexible trace options without using jumpers.

If you are interesting in playing with this technology you can jump on the KickStarter for $2,999 (only a handful left at this price)

    Pretty useless as single layer version, I’d say.
    They should add a dispenser for an insulation layer, so traces can cross each other, like it’s standard in ceramic substrates.
