The FATHOM team is excited to announce that its partner, Nano Dimension, recently launched its DragonFly 2020 Pro 3D printer system for agile hardware development and innovative circuit boards—a larger form factor system than its desktop version, the “Pro” platform will accelerate design validation and enable flexible additive manufacturing of high resolution electronics.
INTRODUCING THE DRAGONFLY 2020 PRO
Many of the complexities and bottlenecks inherent in printed circuit board (PCB) prototyping are removed, allowing companies involved in developing electronics to take control of their development cycles and realize the benefits of fast, secure and cost-effective agile electronics development. Designers and engineers can now innovate rapidly from proof of concept, through design validation to test fixtures, by 3D printing their own multi-layer PCBs.
- 3D print high resolution trace and space with the precise inkjet deposition system
- Construct the full range of multi-layer PCB features—including interconnections such as buried vias and plated through holes
- Owning a system keeps sensitive and proprietary design information in-house during development
- Significantly speed up the fabrication of professional multi-layer PCBs, antennas, experimental electronic circuits, and more—create revisions faster during design validation and use time to be more creative with board designs
The larger system replaces the desktop-sized model that was tested during Nano Dimension’s beta period—one of the first betas was delivered to FATHOM, the first in North America, back in 2016. The evolution in size and capabilities is the direct result of valuable partner and customer feedback. Benefits of the “Pro” model include high precision and resolution, easy maintenance, and an extendable platform.
“Agility and keeping pace with rapidly changing customer expectations is a competitive differentiator,” said Simon Fried, Co-Founder and Chief Business Officer of Nano Dimension. “3D printing with this next-generation DragonFly is transformational for electronics development. Optimizing workflows shrinks PCB design and test cycles from months or weeks, to days. More and easier iterations lead to greater innovation and better business outcomes.”
