Nano Dimension Sells Two DragonFly IV 3D-AME Systems to Defense and Government Agencies


Reading time ( words)

Nano Dimension Ltd., an industry-leader in Additively Manufactured Electronics (AME), Printed Electronics (PE), and Micro Additive Manufacturing (Micro-AM), announced that it has sold the first two DragonFly IV 3D-AME Printers, in addition to the two machines that have completed beta sites processes with other leading customers.

Nano Dimension is the leading provider of intelligent machines for the fabrication of AME. The new DragonFly IV system, combined with FLIGHT software, delivers new levels of quality, efficiency, and print resolution in the 3D printed electronics sector, providing increased flexibility to design any 3D geometry and create innovative new products.

DragonFly IV is a Dielectric and Conductive-Materials Additive Manufacturing System aimed for fabrication of High-Performance Electronic Devices (Hi-PEDs®) by depositing the proprietary materials simultaneously, while concurrently integrating in-situ capacitors, antennas, coils, transformers, and electro-mechanical components.

DragonFly IV 3D-AME Printer

DragonFly IV delivers improved accuracy of traces, spacing, and vias, improved PCB product quality, and the ability to design and produce 3D Hi-PEDs® in a one-step production process.

New capabilities include:

  •  Integration with Nano Dimension’s new FLIGHT software
  •  Integration of 3D elements in PCB
  •  3D designed Hi-PEDs®
  •  Support of HDI level elements
  •  75µm traces; 100µm spacing; 150µm via
  •  Enhanced print quality, optimizing yield with predictable conductivity
  •  Low thickness variation

FLIGHT Software Package

Nano Dimension’s new FLIGHT software suite provides a comprehensive first-of-a-kind ability to incorporate ECAD designs into real 3D MCAD designs, as well as intelligent verification, slicing, and job control solutions. FLIGHT enables the 3D design of electrical and mechanical features in 3-dimensions while ensuring that the new product designs comply with the system’s requirements and can then proceed directly to fabrication on the DragonFly IV.

The Flight Software Suite consists of 3 components:

1-FLIGHT Plan:  Allows designers to develop viable 3D AME using both existing 2D design data, and novel 3D data. Tests show that this reduces the 3D AME design time by up to 10 times.

  •  Integrates 3D MCAD and ECAD capabilities for 3D Electro-Mechanical design
  •  Imports existing designs from major ECAD systems
  •  Enables the use of customers’ existing design tools

2-FLIGHT Check: This application enables design rule checks so that the designs meet the DragonFly IV requirements and are ready for printing.

  •  Unifies design rules for ECAD that meet the constraints of DragonFly IV
  •  Reduces design iteration cycles

3-FLIGHT Control: Delivers an entirely new pre-production solution that enables concurrent fabrication of both 2D and 3D multi-material Hi- PEDs®, improving productivity.

  •  Integrates system and job management toolsets
  •  Supports new file formats (STL & ODB++)
  •  Improves user experience through better rendering accuracy and user interface

Hardware and Software in Smart Factories

03/27/2019 | Happy Holden, I-Connect007
As smart factories become a part of the present rather than a thing of the future, we will all need to become familiar with related concepts and components. This article is dedicated to various automation protocols, including some new ones just coming on the market, and covers hardware, such as PLCs and machine interfaces, as well as software and network protocols, such as MAPS, SECS/GEM, OML, CFX, IPC-2541, and custom software.

Drilling and Routing Machines: Taking Control

05/28/2018 | Barry Matties, I-Connect007
Once driven by hardware, the controller industry for PCB drilling is now one being driven primarily by software, so says Holger Dornau, of SIEB & MEYER. Barry Matties sat down with Holger at the CPCA show in Shanghai to discuss CNC drilling and routing machine controllers and why It's becoming more and more important for fabricators to consider.
