Nano Dimension introduces world’s first on-demand 3D-printed electronics service
Nano Dimension (Ness Ziona, Israel), a leading additive electronics provider, recently announced the immediate availability of the world’s first 3D-printed electronics online service, giving designers and engineers unprecedented access to develop smart, electrified objects, including those that cannot be produced by any other method today.
“We are excited to bring to market the first ever digital manufacturing service for on-demand electronics prototypes and short run production,” said Amit Dror, CEO of Nano Dimension. “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.”
The company’s online service addresses the need for functional electrified prototyping in multiple industries and delivers fast global access to Nano Dimension’s unique DragonFly 2020 Pro 3D Printer, materials and in-depth expertise. Using the Nano Dimension print service portal, companies can upload and optimise designs, receive quotes and order 3D printed models, prototypes, printed circuit boards (PCBs) and other conductive and connected parts.
The new 3D-printed electronics service marks a further expansion of Nano Dimension’s rapidly growing impact as a leading additive electronics provider, helping customers solve unique design challenges and shorten product development timelines. The on-demand printing service is expected to create a new revenue stream for Nano Dimension, while being cost-effective for electronics developers.
For the first time ever, companies and individuals can 3D-print on demand a wide range of objects – with both conductive and dielectric materials – using Nano Dimension’s DragonFly 2020 Pro 3D printing platform. The unique system enables 3D printing of what Nano Dimension calls “electrified objects,” including fully functional devices such as sensors, antennas, moulded interconnect devices (MIDs), PCBs, conductive geometries and more.
The new 3D printed electronics service leverages the company’s growing fleet of printers as well as its newly-launched SOLIDWORKS add-In, which enables electronics developers to design a 3D model in SOLIDWORKS and easily print it using the DragonFly 2020 Pro 3D Printer.
