Electronics additive manufacturing firm Nano Dimension has announced the launch of new technology facilitating round-the clock 3D printing of electronic circuitry.

The Dragonfly Lights-Out Digital Manufacturing (LDM) technology has already been deployed at the Munich factory of defence and security electronics company Hensoldt. 

“The DragonFly LDM is a necessary evolutionary setup up from the DragonFly Pro, enabling low-volume manufacturing of electronic circuits fast and easy to do in-house, with minimal operator time. It will be a great addition for Hensoldt, enabling us to develop innovative applications faster and with far better machine availability and lower maintenance than ever before,” said Andreas Salomon, responsible project leader for 3D printed electronics at Hensoldt.

The technology allows for uninterrupted printing thanks in part to a self cleaning printhead, as well as supporting 3D printed multilayer PCBs and other electronic components. The company said that the technology would extend printed electronics beyond the prototype phase, enabling low-volume manufacturing of 3D printed PCBs and other electronics.

“The DragonFly LDM is designed to help our customers prepare for Industry 4.0. and stay competitive in a world that demands electronic devices with increasingly sophisticated features. Like its predecessor, the DragonFly Pro, it's the first of its kind on the market, carefully designed for both ease-of-use and even more agile, faster and affordable 3D printing of functional circuitry,” said Amit Dror, CEO and co-founder of Nano Dimension. “We’re confident that the LDM system will provide best in class additive manufacturing of printed electronics on the market, making it possible for companies to be more innovative, improve productivity and reliability, lower costs and reduce time-to-market.”
