BotFactory Squink

BotFactory Squink Information

The BotFactory Squink is our Desktop PCB Printer, capable of printing multilayer circuits, dispensing paste onto pads and pick-and-placing components onto the board. All of the processes found in any PCB Factory are miniaturized to fit within a package so small that it can fit between your computer and your oscilloscope.
