Nanofabrica and its 3D additive manufacturing system have been officially renamed following the acquisition by Nano Dimension in April 2021. The company is now known as “Nano Dimension’s Fabrica Group”, and its micro AM technology printing system Tera 250 is now Fabrica 2.0 3D-Additive-Micro-Manufacturing-Machine.
Since commercializing the Fabrica 2.0 machine, Fabrica Group has been making significant headway positioning micro-3D printing as a viable alternative to traditional micro plastic fabrication technologies. The key advantage is the way in which 3D printing allows for the design and production of complex micro geometries at no additional cost. Fabrica 2.0 is also much more agile and flexible than traditional manufacturing technologies. The requirement for no tooling means that designs can be altered with minimal expense, and the potential for mass customization is now open to players in the micro-manufacturing sector.
Fabrica 2.0 is used in the areas of medical devices, micro-optics, semi-conductors, micro-electronics, micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS), microfluidics, and life sciences, making products such as casings for microelectronics, micro springs, microactuators and microsensors, and numerous medical components such as microvalves, micro syringes, and surgical devices.
Dr. Jon Donner, General Manager and Head of Fabrica Sales team, stated, “The acquisition by Nano Dimension, allows Fabrica to accelerate its commercialization. The Fabrica 2.0 machine is appropriate for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in all industry sectors that are looking to manufacture small parts or larger parts with micron-level accuracy. The opportunities we are facing are vast. With Nano Dimension’s support and geographical wingspan, we are accelerating our sales efforts toward the goal of introducing our technology to all relevant vertical markets across all geographies. Nano Dimension has a high profile in the AM sector, and rebranding our micro-AM technology as the “Fabrica 2.0 machine” emphasizes the fact that we are pragmatically focused on opportunities for ‘micro-fabrica-ting’ parts and components using 3D-AM as an alternative to traditional technologies”.
Yoav Stern, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of Nano Dimension shared, “ ‘Fabrica Group & Fabrica 2.0 Machine’ branding indicates our expanded focus on any fault-tolerant AM fabrication not solely AM-Electronics. Moreover, Fabrica Group’s upcoming generations of machines are planned to be equipped with our unique patented Deep Learning/Machine learning for neural fabrication network, enabling smart-real-time-self-correcting manufacturing. Our customer base is expanded with Fabrica’s solutions, while our positioning is gradually shifting toward leveraging our Deep Cube in 3D AM manufacturing across the board. We own now an unparalleled competitive edge with very high barriers to entry, erected by the patented Deep Cube Intelligence Technology”.
