Nano Dimension Ltd., a leading Additively Manufactured Electronics (AME)/PE (Printed Electronics) provider, announced that it has successfully achieved the RoHS 3 certification.
The certification confirms that the dielectric and conductive inks used by the DragonFly LDM System for additive manufacturing of electronics are recyclable as well as non-hazardous and non-polluting. In addition, it assures that the waste created in the printing process may be recycled or disposed without any restrictions.
Yoav Stern, President & CEO commented, “This certification is in addition to our other previously announced certifications, including UL, CSA, ISO 45001:2018 and ISO 14001:2015. It is an important additional reinforcement of our vision to be the natural non-polluting solution to the post-Corona and trade-wars eras concerns of large corporations that ended up totally dependent on electronic low-cost production in the far east. Those supply chains proved to be addictive in a normal course of business, and disastrous upon crisis. The ecological proposition of Nano Dimension’s DragonFly machines and materials for proof of concept will enable companies to shorten supply chains, including for sophisticated PCBs, by building clean environmentally-friendly fabrication facilities “on the ground” at all eco-sensitive locations.”

It’s officially fall now, and in Atlanta the temperature has plummeted to the mid-80s. We’ve all bumped our air conditioners up to 74 degrees. That means it’s trade show season, and I’ve been busy looking for my suitcase. This week, we have an assortment of news about associations, education, and advocacy, as well as another installment of our Printed Electronics Roundtable. And if you’re looking for a job, you are in luck; our jobConnect007 section is chock-full of open positions at all levels in this industry.

Leading companies in the electronics manufacturing industry are highly intentional about their environmental, social and governance (ESG) priorities, with climate change and energy use among the most closely scrutinized issues, an IPC analysis shows. As part of IPC’s ESG for Electronics initiative, IPC is interested in developing resources for members on the most common ESG methods and priorities of leading companies across the electronics value chain. In support of this, IPC has preliminarily analyzed the ESG reports of approximately a dozen companies in selected portions of the industry.

“Summer is over, now it's back to work!” This was the opening line of the invitation to the 18th EIPC Technical Snapshot webinar, Sept. 14, following the theme of advances in automotive electronics technology, introduced and moderated by EIPC President Alun Morgan. The first presentation, entitled "The fully printed smart component—combining additive manufacturing and sensor printing," came from Jonas Mertin, a thin-film processing specialist at the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology.
