US Armed Forces purchase two more electronic 3D printers from Nano Dimension

Total number of installed systems in the US military now stands at four

After the first deal sealed last June 2018, leading electronics 3D printer manufacturer Nano Dimension sold two additional DragonFly Pro systems to different branches of the United States Armed Forces. This brings the total number of U.S. Armed Forces customers to four since Nano Dimension received a Commercial and Government Entity (CAGE) Code from the U.S. Department of Defense’s Defense Logistics Agency.

Sending confidential intellectual property to an external supplier is a major security concern for defense industry companies. The multi-material DragonFly Pro precision additive manufacturing system allows electronics designers and electrical engineers to 3D print conductive metal and dielectric polymer simultaneously, and in-house, to meet stringent security requirements. This capability significantly shortens electronics developers’ project turnaround times. PCB prototypes and other functional circuitry, including antennas and sensors, can be additively manufactured in a matter of hours instead of weeks. This helps businesses achieve greater value by leveraging more agile workflows and adopting new design opportunities within shorter development cycles.

“Nano Dimension’s US sales and marketing team has been working effectively with our market-leading value-added resellers. On the strength of these partnerships, Nano Dimension has further extended its reach in the U.S. defense vertical,” said Simon Fried, President of Nano Dimension USA. “The selection of our precision additive manufacturing technologies by U.S. defense organizations demonstrates the unparalleled value offered by our products to the defense industry at large.”

The DragonFly Pro additive manufacturing system transforms electronics development by enabling companies to reinvent their development processes as well as their products. Furthermore, the DragonFly Pro makes it possible to manufacture customized and low-volume parts without requiring with an outside vendor. This technology enables IP-secure in-house prototyping or manufacturing of functional electronics such as sensors, antennas, molded interconnect devices, printed circuit boards and other innovative circuitry.
