Industry 4.0 Kicks it Up a Notch with the First Machine that 3D Prints Electronic Components 24/7

by Nicolette Emmino

As manufacturers prepare for Industry 4.0, attempting to stay relevant and competitive at a time where electronic devices are needed quickly and with enhanced features, a solution is needed to for faster, more agile, and more affordable manufacturing methods.

Nano Dimension, Ltd. saw the need and created a piece of machinery that touts the answer to such challenges.

The Lights-Out Digital Manufacturing (LDM) printing technology is now the industry’s only comprehensive additive manufacturing platform for round-the-clock 3D printing of electronic circuitry.  The system is designed for Industry 4.0 and manufacturing for the Internet of Things and is the extension of the successful DragonFly Pro precision system, which is dedicated to printing electronic components such as multilayer Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs), antennas, capacitors and sensors.

Nano Dimension’s DragonFly LDM extends 3D printing for printed electronics beyond prototyping to true in-house, lights-out digital manufacturing, enabling one-off prototypes as well as low-volume manufacturing of printed electronics. It combines new printer head software management algorithms with the automatic self-cleaning of its print heads every few hours and is equipped with real-time automatic material monitoring capabilities that ensure maximized runtime. The new technology minimizes the frequency and duration of scheduled downtime to typically just one weekly maintenance operation.

 Features & Benefits

* Long uninterrupted printing for increased uptime and improved yield

* Supports 3D printed multilayer PCBs, capacitors, coils, sensors, antennas and more

* Simpler and faster operation for minimal maintenance

* New automatic printhead self-cleaning system

* Offered also as an upgrade for existing DragonFly Pro users
