TTM Technologies, a California-based supplier of advanced printed circuit boards has reportedly invested in two additional DragonFly Pro 3D printers from Israel-based Nano Dimension. The two new units will join an existing DragonFly Pro machine at the company’s facility.
By expanding its use of Nano Dimension’s electronics 3D printing technology, TTM Technologies aims to increase its PCB AM capabilities to better serve its clients in the aerospace and defense industries, to name but a couple. The company will leverage the DragonFly Pro systems’ ability to print metal and polymer components in a single part to produce increasingly advanced PCBs.
“It’s been over a year since we launched the DragonFly Pro,” commented Amit Dror, CEO of Nano Dimension. “One of the most significant achievements is seeing how customers using our system can consistently overcome development and production challenges, increase innovation and improve workflows to achieve faster time to market and better performance.
“The combination of our unique system and TTM’s leading expertise in innovative design, development and manufacturing, allows them to provide services like no one else can, to achieve market dominance in traditional and additive manufacturing processes. We are excited to be collaborating with TTM, a company that is garnering the value of precision additive manufacturing of printed electronics.”
With three DragonFly Pro 3D printers operating in house, TTM will be better equipped to offer its clients the latest prototyping and production solutions. The innovative AM platform is well suited for a range of applications, including the production of multilayer PBCs, RF antenna prototypes, sensors and new electronics for IoT devices.
Since its launch in 2017, Nano Dimension’s DragonFly Pro 3D printer has made an impact on the AM industry through its ability to print electronic components using a novel inkjet deposition technology. The technology has already been adopted by a range of companies and organizations for production and research applications. In the U.S., the defense sector has taken a particular interest in the AM platform.
