Printed circuit boards (PCB) information
T-Tech Quick Circuit QCJ5
The T-Tech Quick Circuit QCJ5 is a 3-axis CNC milling machine. It has a 60,000rpm spindle specifically designed for producing printed circuit boards. It has the capability to produce single and double sided PCBs with a maximum size of 300mm x 220mm.
Typical Work Pieces
The following table contains details of tool sizes available in the Mechatronics PCB mill. Your PCB Design minimum clearances and hole sizes should be matched to suit this tooling.
thou / mil
transistors - TO-92 / small diodes - 1n4148 etc…
1/4 watt resistors etc.
Pins and diodes - 1N4004 etc
Holes for screws / standoffs etc…
Minimum clearance between tracks and pads
Preferred minimum clearance
Board outline / cut-out. Can also be used for holes
Producing a Board
To get a PCB produced email the Gerber and drill files to firstname.lastname@example.org
You will be informed by email when your board is complete.
Instructions are based on DipTrace. Please take note of design restraints.
Exporting Gerber and Drill Files
Once the board design is complete, Gerber and drill files will need to be created and sent to email@example.com.
Single sided boards will require 3 files:
- Tracks (Gerber)
- Board Outline (Gerber)
- Holes (Drill)
2 Sided boards will also require a second Tracks Gerber file.
