Voltera V-One EDU Bundle

A PROTOTYPING PLATFORM FOR ELECTRONICS.

The Voltera V­-One brings quick turn PCBs to your desktop. Import your Gerber file into the Voltera software, press print, and the V-­One will bring your board to life. Use the solder paste dispensing and reflow features to mount components onto your printed board, or mount components on a pre-­fabricated board with ease.

Features

Anyone can use it.

The ink cartridge is installed in the dispenser, and the dispenser is mounted on the V-One. All of our attachments are magnetically mounted, so you do not need any special tools to swap them.

During a print, the dispenser gear will rotate to apply and relieve pressure to accurately control the ink flow. With the click of a few buttons you can be printing 8 mil (200 micron) traces, but don’t worry the software will guide you every step of the way.

A perfect print every time.

This high precision probe was developed from the ground up and creates a height map of your substrate. The V-One takes the map into account and makes micro adjustments to ensure a constant printing height of 100 microns.

Since we do not need the substrate to be conductive, we can dispense on rigid materials like FR4, glass and ceramics, along with flexible substrates like Kapton (Polyimide).
