3D printed electronics online on-demand service launched by Nano Dimension

Multimaterial 3D printing is exemplified no better than in the
area of 3D printed electronics. The ability to create printed
circuit boards (PCBs) on demand has the potential to
transform localized electronics production and prototyping from
the the
armed forces
to consumer goods, and every industry
in-between.

To meet a growing demand for rapid electronics production,
Israeli inkjet printing and material development company Nano
Dimension (TLV:NNDM) has launched what it terms “the world’s
first 3D printed electronics online service.”

Circuitry to speed the product life-cycle

Nano Dimension’s proprietary DragonFly 2020 and DragonFly 2020
Pro 3D printers are installed at over 15 different locations,

including Jabil
, FATHOM,
U.S. electronics company PHYTEC
 and anonymous users in
defence, medicine and transportation. However, this is the
first time that Nano Dimension will be directly offering PCB 3D
printing as an on-demand service.

Amit Dror, CEO of Nano Dimension, comments, “We are excited to
bring to market the first ever digital manufacturing service
for on-demand electronics prototypes and short run production,”

“Our unique additive manufacturing capabilities position us to
be the first to offer professional-grade 3D printed circuitry,
encapsulated sensors and printed antennas to designers and
engineers within days, compressing our customers’ time to
market and delivering valuable services across their entire
product life cycle.”

3D printing electronics for every purpose

Nano Dimesion’s
3D Printed Electronics Service Bureau
is
open companies and individuals, allowing designs that
incorporate  conductive
and non-conductive materials
, and rigid and flexible
polymers.

Finished products delivered by Nano Dimension 3D printers
include sensors, antennas, molded interconnect devices
(MIDs), PCBs, and conductive geometries, components that the
company terms “electrified objects.”

All electrified objects will be made using the
DragonFly 2020 Pro
system, an upgrade on the original 2020
model released September 2017.

Speaking at the time of the Pro’s release Simon Fried,

Nano Dimension Co-Founder and CBO
, said, “Agility and
keeping pace with rapidly changing customer expectations is a
competitive differentiator. 3D printing with this
next-generation DragonFly is transformational for electronics
development.”

Fried also featured in our
Future of 3D Printing
thought leadership series where he
gave his insight for the next five years of the technology.
