Circuit printing just got a whole lot more affordable, surprisingly faster and much less complicated. Introducing Squink, the all-in-one desktop electronic circuit factory that has been revolutionizing the industry of rapid prototyping. With a total of three interchangeable heads, this tabletop circuit factory saves money by serving multiple purposes.
Use Squink's inkjet printer head to construct high quality circuits in a matter of just a few short minutes or use the extruder head to glue and solder printed items or pre-fabricated boards. To bring all of your wildest creations to life, this circuit machine is also equipped with what is known as a “Pick-and-Place” toolhead. This innovative printer head allows you to simply design a file and then drag-and-drop it into the unique web-based software. Yes, it really is that easy!
There is absolutely no need to install extra software on your computer to use this circuit printing device, and when it comes to the quality of software, no other circuit factory compares to Squink. This is because this powerful circuit printer is outfitted with the finest quality on-board software available.
