With the ability to print traces and spaces down to an accuracy of one micron, the DragonFly™ inkjet deposition system is setting new accuracy and precision standards for 3D printed electronics. This allows the DragonFly™ to deliver in industries with the most demanding design and quality requirements, such as aerospace, telecomms, healthcare and more.
Simultaneous multi-material additive manufacturing is a revolutionary approach that paves the way towards redefining how compact, dense and non-planar the electronics of tomorrow can be.
The DragonFly™ is fitted with two printheads, one for nano-Silver and the other for dielectric polymer ink. This set-up allows the DragonFly™ to concurrently print with both advanced inks in one print job.
Powering the DragonFly™ is Switch, a 3D-optimized software package that prepares electronic designs for printing on the DragonFly™ .
Switch supports customary file formats in the electronics industry such as Gerber, VIA and DRILL. It presents a unique interface that displays a detailed and accurate rendition of design's structure, thus facilitating a highly precise 3D print job.
With Switch, users will be able to adjust many characteristics of the 3D file, such as layer thickness, conductor width, layer order, punching, rotation options as well as the shape or object outline. In addition, the software enables an optimization of the printing process by maximizing the use of the printing surface.
Synthesizing precision and accuracy with multi-material additive manufacturing, the DragonFly™ unlocks a whole new world of design possibilities for printed electronics. A wide array of Printed Circuit Board (PCB) features, such as vias and through-holes, can be fully 3D printed in-house without subsequent etching, drilling and plating. A range of non-planar electronic components, such as Molded Interconnect Devices (MIDs) and electromagnets, can also be printed and tested on-the-fly.
The DragonFly™ is transforming how product development teams work – waiting days or weeks for a custom prototype to be fabricated offsite can finally be a thing of the past. The freedom to innovate empowers progress, encourages product advancement, lowers development risks and enables faster time-to-market. Ultimately, it creates a better end-product.
