Accucode, an American reseller of Nano Dimension’s electronics 3D printing technology, is opening the world’s first service bureau for 3D printing electronics. To support the new service, the company has also purchased a second DragonFly LDM 3D printer from Nano Dimension.
Accucode is a technology systems integrator and software developer which has turned its sights to offering electronics 3D printing as a service for end-to-end prototyping and low-volume production of electronics. The company now has one DragonFly 3D printer installed at its facility in Denver, Colorado and the other at its center in Richardson, Texas. Both printers will support its new service offering.
“Building on our experience of thousands of additively manufactured electronics parts, with the help and collaboration of Accucode’s dedicated service bureau, we are now scaling our business to enlarge our reach,” said Amit Dror, CEO of Nano Dimension. “Customers that wish to benefit from our disruptive technology can easily have it now through a service thanks to Accucode. For us, the opening of a dedicated service bureau represents Accucode’s strong belief in our technology and the continuation of a long and prosperous journey together to expand our market reach.”
The new electronics 3D printing service will leverage the DragonFly’s ability to 3D print both conductive metal and polymer materials simultaneously to produce one-off functional boards for customers. The DragonFly platform also allows for new types of electronics to be explored, unconstrained by traditional shapes and sizes.
Through its new service, Accucode will produce components with integrated functionality, like PCBs with side mounted and inserted components, functional capacitors, vertically stacked integrated circuits, DC-to-DC power converters, antennas and RF devices.
The 3D printing service will be co-managed by Accucode 3D, the company’s 3D printing division, as well as The 3D Printing Store, which recently merged with Accucode 3D.
“We have seen increasing growth in the number of businesses looking for functional electrical prototyping and manufacturing solutions,” said Debra Wilcox, CEO of Accucode 3D and The 3D Printing Store. “Nano Dimension’s technology and expertise helps us provide a direct path to achieve that.”
“Additive manufacturing is ready to disrupt the electronics manufacturing sector,” added Kevin Price, CEO of Accucode. “Our teams in Dallas, Denver and Ireland are ready to support customers through the disruption processes. Our service bureau can design, print, populate, and deliver working electronics in days. We can potentially deliver this at a significant cost savings over today’s production options. From quantities of 1 to the 1,000s. This is a dream come true for designers, inventors and manufacturers of many things. Nano Dimension has been a great partner and we are excited by this opportunity.”
