A Third DragonFly 2020 3D Printer is Shipped in Beta Testing: PHYTEC to Evaluate Accelerated Speed in Development
Previously all we were able to do was anticipate the DragonFly 2020 3D Printer from Nano Dimension, skipping from the unveiling of the groundbreaking new hardware to the announcement of their Switch software which will allow users to prepare files of electronic circuits for printing with the DragonFly 2020. Now, we see the circuit board (PCB) desktop 3D printers being meted out slowly, with three having been delivered and the most recent sent to PHYTEC.
Headquartered in Germany, PHYTEC Messtechnik has been a long-time leader in the world of microprocessors and supporting applications, developing the most innovative technologies. Known as the first to launch an Original Equipment Manufacturer – OEM-able module, PHYTEC also offers systems integration, hardware and software design, mechanical design, and manufacturing. Their innovations are particularly useful within industries such as control and automation, medical, testing and measurement, automotive, energy, and transportation.
PHYTEC has offices all over the world, to include Germany, France, the United States, India and China, and their products have been used in hundreds of thousands of systems. Although the DragonFly is still in beta, this powerful new 3D printer will be installed at their Mainz, Germany location.
“Product development in industrial applications has become very agile. Global trends like IoT create new technologies which drive innovation into almost every kind of application,” said Bodo Huber, CTO of PHYTEC. “Time-to-market is a key to success for our customers since new types of appliances and products are continuously invented all over the world.”
“We are very excited to work with Nano Dimension’s cutting-edge technology and hope that it will enable us to provide our customers with end-to-end solutions for shortening time-to-market and allowing rapid prototyping.”
As PHYTEC delves further into 3D printing with the DragonFly, the expectation is that they will see accelerated turnaround times in development and production of important electronics systems. As they use the 3D printer, it will be evaluated in terms of fast it does speed up project times and manufacturing.
“Nano Dimension receives a high level of interest from potential customers with hundreds of inquiries by companies that are interested in testing the DragonFly 2020 3D Printer,” said Amit Dror, CEO of Nano Dimension. “As a part of our go-to-market strategy, we are currently focused on supplying printers for evaluation to leading companies around the world, and across key technology sectors. We believe that this will help bolster the adoption of our cutting-edge technology with many prospective customers.”
Nano Dimension has also supplied the 3D printer to FATHOM, a US company already known to be experts in 3D printing, along with providing one to an Israeli defense company. Founded in 2012 with a keen focus on 3D printed electronics, Nano Dimensions’ products are known for combining 3D inkjet, 3D software and nanomaterials.
