CMK Corporation to leverage Nano Dimension additive manufacturing technology to accelerate development in electronics
NESS ZIONA, Israel, May 6, 2019 –Nano Dimension Ltd., a leading additive electronics provider (NASDAQ, TASE: NNDM), today announced its entry into the Japanese market with the sale of the award-winning DragonFly™ Pro 3D printing platform to CMK Corporation in Tokyo, one of Japan’s largest printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturers.
CMK will use the DragonFly Pro multi-material additive manufacturing system for faster prototyping cycles of printed wiring boards (PWB) during early development stage, and use it to take new various suggestions of PWB shapes or layer structures to their customers. CMK believes that their development products can be completed earlier using this 3D printing machine for PWB.
The DragonFly Pro system is currently the only one-stop solution for additive manufacturing of electronics. It enables designers to move rapidly from concept and design validation to production of precision electronic components, providing efficiency and cost savings, keeping the entire process securely in-house, with the final product ready in a matter of hours – a current industry record.
With more than 50 years of experience in manufacturing PWBs, CMK derives about 70% of its sales from automotive electronics – from circuit prototypes for car accessories, to highly complex electronic control systems, engine management systems and applications for autonomous vehicles essential in the era of connected cars.
The Japanese automotive industry has been the dominant force in global automotive manufacturing and innovation for decades. According to recent market reports, the Asia-Pacific market is the largest regional market for automotive PCBs. The Asia-Pacific region comprises emerging economies such as China and India along with developed economies such as Japan and South Korea. The rapid adoption of advanced automotive electronics, growing consumer purchasing power, and consumer expectations for safety features are the key factors driving the automotive PCB market in the Asia-Pacific region.
“We are thrilled to expand into the innovative Japanese electronics market and look forward to working directly with CMK, a global leader in electronics and PCB technologies,” said Gilad Reshef, APAC director at Nano Dimension. “Our experts have the capability and know-how for PCB technologies and accelerate the development of precision additive manufacturing for electronics. We are the only company capable to provide this type of in-house manufacturing process, so printed electronics can offer a wide design and manufacturing freedom.”
