Discover how 3D printed electronics provides new ways to solve traditional development challenges and is ramping up to manufacturing in the Industry 4.0 era.
The award-winning system for precision additive manufacturing of printed electronics
Transforming concepts into market-ready products is a major challenge in the highly competitive electronics industry. With the introduction of additive manufacturing to the electronics world, these problems can finally become history.
Nano Dimension provides AgCite™ nano-Silver inks specifically tailored for antennas and radio-frequency identification (RFID) chips. Third party tests demonstrate the inks matching industry efficiency benchmarks with 89% antenna efficiency at 2 GHz.
Harris Corporation and Nano Dimension worked together to explore the potential use of 3D printing for radio frequency (RF) circuits. The resulting data showed similar RF performance between 3D printed and the baseline amplifiers, demonstrating the viability of 3D printing technology to produce a functional RF circuit.
In an IoT world, we interact with our gadgets, tools, environment and vehicles in new ways such as touch, eye tracking or speech. As product formats change and features evolve, there is the need to develop new sensors to facilitate this ‘electronics everywhere’ era where monitoring and effortless control become paramount.
Everyone makes mistakes, but that doesn't mean manufacturers need to incur huge time and cost penalties correcting them. Learn how one company managed to redesign and 3D print 30 Ball Grid Array PCBs on the DragonFly™ Pro system in just one day upon unearthing a design error.
Molded Interconnect Devices (MIDs) provides a high degree of design flexibility and miniaturization. With the DragonFly Pro 3D printer’s ability to print both dielectric and conductive inks concurrently, not only is production time kept low, but conductive traces can now be printed within the insulating materials.
While conceptual design may be simple, the outsourced production of Arduino prototypes may involve design mistakes that require multiple iterations. With the DragonFly Pro 3D Printer, printing a functional Arduino prototype in-house can now be as simple as creating the design itself.
IoT sensors help provide full interconnectivity between a wide range of objects. Learn more about how the DragonFly Pro 3D printer was used to create this temperature and humidity sensor that can be incorporated into many applications.
By combining conventional additive manufacturing of mechanical components with 3D printing of electronics, Nano Dimension created an Arduino-based robot with its electrical components 3D printed on the DragonFly Pro 3D printer.
Electromagnets are important components of a wide range of devices. With the DragonFly Pro 3D printer's ability to make rapid prototyping affordable, limitless electromagnet designs can be created to accommodate specific project needs and enable greater precision.
Moore’s law is coming to an end according to many science and technology commentators. Among them is the celebrity theoretical physicist Michio Kaku who predicted in 2012: “In about ten years or so, we will see the collapse of Moore’s law.”1
