Could 3D Printing Disrupt the Electronics Industry?
More companies and universities are integrating 3D printing with their electronic design. The non-traditional process was well-received as it moved from the aerospace to automotive to medical industries. Electronics could be next on the list to benefit from 3D printing, according to Ernst and Young. Today, many people say we will never 3D-print phones and other complex, multi-material products. However, with so many companies pushing to develop a magical all-encompassing printer, will we see electronics being manufactured with 3D printing?
PHYTEC enjoys reduction in time and cost with Nano Dimension DragonFly 2020 3D printer
In November 2016, Nano Dimension Technologies delivered a beta DragonFly 2020 to its third customer: PHYTEC, a German microprocessor solutions provider. The deal came about as PHYTEC tackled an increasing demand for prototypes from its customer base. PHYTEC needed a solution which could reduce development time, while maintaining the quality of its products and service. It decided to take on Nano Dimension’s flagship 3D printing technology, and today is publishing the results.
U.S. Armed Forces Invests in Additive Electronics
Two different branches of the U.S. Armed Forces have bought a DragonFly Pro 3D printer from Nano Dimensions, a move that points to the potential benefit that the technology has for defense applications.
Five 3-D printing breakthroughs everyone needs to know about
The world of 3-D printing is changing fast. New materials are announced and new systems are proposed almost every month. And as with any fast-growing technology, there is a lot of hype. When something is announced it will get a lot of press and attention, but what do you really need to know to follow the industry? Below are five recent events that anyone that uses or follows additive manufacturing should know about. They impact not only the technology, but also the business side of the industry.
14 Ways Israel Inspired the World in 2016
ISRAEL21c brings you daily reports of Israeli inventions, innovations, discoveries and altruistic initiatives. Here we’ve chosen 15 of many that made a remarkable impact in the year 2016, including Nano Dimension's 3D printed human tissue.
3D Printed Circuit Boards: First PCB 3D Printers Available Soon
For makers, 3D printed circuit boards are no longer a mere dream. 3D printers, which can do DIY PCB printing, will become commercially available soon. The making of DIY circuit boards is a complex task. First, you’ll have to plan the PCB, make a 2D print of the layout, cut a copper plate, transfer the PCB layout to the copper plate, iron the circuit, go through the process of etching, cleaning, disposing… and after some hours of manual labor, you should be ready.
Nano Dimension ships first 3D printer for PCBs
Nano Dimension Ltd. (Ness Ziona, Israel), has supplied the first DragonFly 2020 printer for 3D circuitry and PCBs to an Israeli defense electronics company. The unit is for evaluation purposes and is expected to be installed at the partner’s site in the next few days.
