The rush to stay ahead of the competition and meet ever-increasing customer demands for the next wearable device, smart phone, internet-enabled home appliance and other connected devices keeps consumer electronics manufacturers at the forefront of product design innovation.
The ability to print functional electronic prototypes in hours instead of waiting weeks for outsourced designs to be manufactured is already causing a paradigm shift in R&D workflows. With 3D printed electronics, developers and manufacturers have the speed and agility to iterate faster and more efficiently, thus allowing the introduction of new products to market at record time and minimal cost.
With new capabilities for embedding components, printing circuitry directly into electronic products, enabling device miniaturization and customization, 3D printed electronics represents a major advantage for smart product manufacturers. In the past, smart products had to be assembled from multiple separate components, but this is no longer the case. 3D printing of advanced electronics with complex geometries, smart surfaces and non-planar components will enable leaps and bounds in product innovation, increasing functionality while decreasing part size and count.
Positioned at the heart of digital manufacturing and offering groundbreaking technology to 3D print electronic prototypes in-house, the DragonFly™ System is set to become the new standard in the way smart products are designed and manufactured. Forget lengthy design processes, multi-stage prototyping, costly iterations, and one-size-fits-all thinking: 3D printed electronics is enabling a new age of customized and on-demand electronics. From innovative sensors and wearables to enhanced intelligence and on-site maintenance in IoT systems, additive manufacturing of electronics delivers a brand new tool set to help developers succeed.
