One of the most talked-about 3D printers to be introduced over the past few years has been the DragonFly 2020, the electronic circuit board 3D printer. A thorough beta program allowed creator Nano Dimension to perfect the machine, and feedback from customers was highly positive as the beta program closed. Working with feedback from its many beta customers, Nano Dimension recently followed up with the DragonFly 2020 Pro, an industrial replacement of the original desktop machine that was designed in response to users’ real-world usage and requirements and is now commercially available.
Now that the DragonFly 2020 Pro is on the market, what’s next for Nano Dimension? Quite a bit, it seems. The company has announced its intentions to pursue ceramics 3D printing as well as bioprinting, and now Nano Dimension has officially opened a new Customer Experience Center, or CEC, at its headquarters in Ness Ziona, Israel. The DragonFly 2020 Pro will be featured at the CEC, with on-site 3D printing demonstrations and samples available for viewing.
The CEC will be operated by Nano Dimension technicians and engineers specializing in additive manufacturing and engineering. Companies that visit will receive personalized advice on how best to implement 3D printed electronics for certain applications.
“Companies that are engaged in computing and actuating hardware products are under pressure to speed up their concepts into market-ready products quickly, while meeting the need for small, faster and more functional electronics,” said Amit Dror, CEO of Nano Dimension. “We are making agile hardware development immediately accessible through our Customer Experience Center, which will serve as a one-stop shop for advanced additive manufacturing technology. For the first time, customers can leverage Nano Dimension’s expertise and experience the benefits of electrified additive manufacturing applications on site.”
The CEC in Ness Ziona is the first of several CECs that Nano Dimension has planned for across the world. The CEC offers the opportunity for visitors to not only see the DragonFly 2020 Pro in action and meet with Nano Dimension’s leadership team, but also to meet and work with company specialists who can “provide tailored advice to the specific needs of your company about the best way to implement 3D-printed electronics for specific applications and industry 4.0 preparedness.”
The DragonFly 2020 Pro 3D printer will be traveling, making its way to trade shows and allowing people to check out its capabilities. The original DragonFly 2020 has been a presence at many trade shows and industry events, but this is the first time many people will be seeing the Pro in person. Next week, the 3D printer will be on display at productronica, a trade show for electronics development and production, which is taking place in Munich from November 14th to the 17th.
Nano Dimension will be in Hall B2, Booth 201 at productronica, and visitors can stop by to see fully functional circuits 3D printed on the DragonFly 2020 Pro. The company will also be displaying its high performance inkjet materials for 3D printed electronics, including conductive and dielectric materials. Visitors to the booth can also check out Nano Dimension’s Switch software, which was developed for the DragonFly 2020 and offers users a great deal of design flexibility.
