A recent article by TCT Magazine highlighted Nano Dimension (TASE:NNDM,NASDAQ:NNDM) and their DragonFly 2020 3D printer, which is designed to print multi-layer professional printed circuit boards (PCBs), and advanced nanotechnology-based conductive and dielectric inks.
As quoted in the article:

Like 3D printing, printed electronics have been around for some time but it’s only just beginning to mature. Nano Dimension is by no means the first name to tackle 3D printed electronics but unlike desktop Voxel8 that’s just started shipping its Developer’s Kit 3D Printer, it identifies itself as the first company that’s solely focused on 3D printing electronics in the professional space.
“Plastic printing is good for some things, 3D metal printing is good for others, but our world is one where electronics are everywhere,” Simon Fried, Chief Business Officer and Co-founder of Nano Dimension, commented. “To be able to merge printed electronics and 3D printing will open doors to new ways of making things and ultimately making different things.”
The DragonFly uses an inkjet deposition and curing system to print multi-layer circuit boards in a matter of hours. Capable of printing in two materials, the machine exclusively uses Nano Dimension’s in-house developed AgCite nanoparticle conductive silver inks. Nano Dimension’s ink scientists can extract 10-100+ nanometer-sized particles of pure silver and are able to control the size, shape and dispersion of nanoparticles to achieve the best levels of conductivity, flexibility and adhesion. Simon says he believes using proprietary materials is “the only way” to achieve the ultimate precision required for electronics to function, as they should.
Nano Dimension hopes we’ll see more electronics engineers taking risks in their approach to design thanks to the benefits afforded by 3D printing. The typical 10-day turnaround for a 10 or 12 layer PCB can often mean engineers remain conservative about the process as any mistakes can come with high risk in terms of cost and time. With 3D printed electronics, engineering teams have the ability change the way they work, moving from linear workflows to a much more flexible system where they can print an entire board or just part of a circuit, whilst iterating on the fly.
The machine is scheduled for commercial release later this year in key manufacturing and tech hot spots across the U.S., Europe and Asia. They’re already working with a select few companies in beta including Silicon Valley 3D printing service provider FATHOM and aerospace technology developer Israel Aerospace Industries, which will be among the first to receive a printer upon release. Nano Dimension is looking for partners in various industries including telecom, aerospace, consumer electronics, automotive and even Internet of Things. Each of these sectors have completely different needs from the technology, whether it’s simply speeding up development cycles, weight-saving or embedding into consumer products.
“Different questions are being asked across the board,” Simon concluded. “We don’t have answers to all of them yet but by working in each of those areas it will get clearer all of the time.”
