3D Printed Electronics Newsletter

The year so far has been a very busy one at Nano Dimension. We have delivered DragonFly 2020 3D Printers to industry leaders in various fields, in locations including the USA, Israel and Germany. We’re continually improving our customer support, infrastructure, and going ahead with our plans to open a new ink production facility as part of our ongoing global expansion. The ongoing feedback from our beta customers continues to be positive and they already are producing functional multilayer PCBs that work in end-use devices. We welcome you to join our upcoming commercial early access program.

While our focus is on continued improvements and partnerships towards commercial distribution of the DragonFly 2020 3D Printer, we are also developing our disruptive technology beyond PCBs for rapid prototyping, including embedded electronics, ceramic materials, breakthrough defense and aerospace applications and even production of functional electronic components, including additive and digital manufacturing for short run production. 

Here are some of our recent highlights in case you missed them:

Nano Dimension Awarded Two R&D Aerospace Projects

Nano Dimension has been awarded two project grant approvals by Space Florida, the aerospace and spaceport development authority for the State of Florida, and the Israeli Innovation Authority, as part of the Space-Florida-Israel Innovation Partnership Program for development and commercialization of aerospace and technology projects. Space Florida and the Innovation Authority announced in 2013 a joint program totaling $2 million a year for financing research and development in space technology by Israeli companies. The following projects were awarded to Nano Dimension:

Harris Corporation & Nano Dimension to Develop Next Generation 3D Printed Electronic Systems
Harris Corp, a leading technology innovator, solving customers’ toughest mission-critical challenges by providing solutions that connect, inform, and protect, and Nano Dimension will jointly develop 3D printing of electronic modules for space applications. This project will demonstrate double-sided, multi-layer circuits that distribute digital, power and RF signal at the same substrate, thus providing reduced size, weight, power and cost of space systems. New high volume printed RF technology will provide improved reliability and uniformity of space systems by eliminating manual assembly. “Such development is planned to lead to cost reductions of $400K per small satellite, thus providing enormous market capabilities for both entities”, says Space Florida in a press release.

Harris is a proven leader in tactical communications, geospatial systems and services, air traffic management, environmental solutions, avionics and electronic warfare, and space and intelligence delivering innovative solutions through its Communications Systems, Space and Intellligence Systems and Electronic Systems. 

Semplastics and Nano Dimension to Develop 3D Ceramic Materials for Aerospace Applications

As part of the project Nano Dimension will also work with Semplastics. Nano Dimesnion will focus on using Semplastics novel ceramic material precursors with it’s unique 3D inkjet printing technology to create prototype applications for the aerospace industry. A novel ceramic material, developed by Semplastics and used in prototype space applications in cooperation with NASA, will be 3D printed for this project. A modified resin will be developed for the Nano Dimension 3D printer during this project, resulting in a light-weight yet highly mechanically stable object.

The technologies available today to create ceramic elements are expensive as well as time- and energy-consuming from the design stage until final assembly, and they do not support the creation of complex structures. 3D printing of high-resolution ceramic materials has the potential to allow the creation of complex geometrical shapes, thus allowing rapid and cheaper production of small batches of designated ceramic objects, used in the aerospace industry.

 

Nano Dimension Appoints Avi Reichental to Board of Directors

Avi Reichental has joined Nano Dimension’s board of directors. Reichental served as president, chief executive officer and director at 3D Systems for more than a decade. Under his leadership, 3D systems emerged as a formidable global 3D-printing provider, growing revenue by more than six-fold and increasing market valuation by more than twelve-fold.

“Avi disrupted the 3D-printing industry and showed that success comes from challenging the status quo. I am very pleased he is joining our board of directors as we continue to grow Nano Dimension for long-term profitable growth,” said Amit Dror, CEO of Nano Dimension. “Avi is an experienced executive, parallel entrepreneur, and visionary. He has relevant and profound global insights into the field of additive manufacturing, that we believe will be immensely valuable to Nano Dimension.”

 

Ringing the Bell for 3D Printed Electronics

The Nano Dimension team celebrated the company’s recent capital raising activities in the Opening Bell Ceremony on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange on 18 June, 2017. Nano Dimension CEO Amit Dror rang the bell, which symbolizes the opening of trade on the Israeli market. Nano Dimension (Nasdaq: NNDM; TASE: NNDM) secured approximately $13.5 million in funding from Israeli and non-US private and institutional investors through private placements.

Amit Dror, Nano Dimension CEO said: “Nano Dimension is a world leader in the advanced manufacturing field, with a revolutionary technology and product that has gained recognition and praise from the world’s leading companies. We are a company with scientists, researchers and more than 100 employees, breaking down boundaries and creating the fourth industrial revolution with our technological breakthroughs.”

Nano Dimension Enters UK and Irish Markets 

Nano Dimension is collaborating with Anglo Production Processes, an industry-leading distributor, to develop the required commercial and service infrastructure and capabilities to allow the introduction of the DragonFly 2020 3D Printer to the UK and Ireland. APP has been a quality provider of products and services to the UK electronics industry for more than 20 years. The companies will be displaying the DragonFly 2020 3D Printer at the tct Show and Engineering Design Show this autumn.

 

Copenhagen Business School Wins MBA Competition on Nano Dimension

Congratulations to the Copenhagen Business School (CBS) for winning this year’s Sofaer International MBA case competition on Nano Dimension in the best Danish style.

Each year Tel Aviv University’s Sofaer International MBA Program at TAU’s Leon Recanati Graduate School of Business Administration invites university teams from Israel and abroad to compete in the program’s strategic case competition on an Israeli company operating in markets abroad. This year the students were asked to present a long-term strategy for the future growth of Nano Dimension. Nine MBA Teams from leading international business schools participated in the 13th competition in May 2017.

Amit Dror, CEO of Nano Dimension, said, “The competition is an exceptional opportunity for companies. The team that won presented a coherent analysis to reach the main market and an additional market which matches our current strategy. We will make an in-depth examination of the solutions which were brought up in the finals to refine the proposals and implement the students’ conclusions that are suitable to the company.”

Udi Aharoni and Dr. Ravit Meitar, Directors of the Eli Hurvitz Institute of Strategic Management noted that, “The competition provides Nano Dimension with creative solutions which are outside of its daily routine. The insights that it receives in the context of the international completion are original and reflect a different approach.”
