Nano Dimension used for Defense

Nano Dimension, a leading additive electronics provider, today announced that one of the top ten largest U.S.-based global defense and aviation providers has bought aDragonFly Pro 3D Printer. The DragonFly Pro, the only system of its type worldwide, additively manufactures electronics, allowing the user to achieve unparalleled rapid prototyping agility.
The sale marks yet another purchase of a Nano Dimension 3D printed electronics system in the U.S. defense sector, and is an important milestone in the company’s penetration of global defense and aviation markets.
The Nano Dimension DragonFly Pro 3D printer is transforming electronics development by empowering companies to take control of their entire development cycle. The system enables 3D-printing of functional electronics such as encapsulated sensors, conductive geometries, antennas, molded interconnect devices, printed circuit boards and other innovative circuitry.
Today’s sophisticated defense and aviation systems are comprised of thousands of electrical components. To keep tight development timetables on-track and move prototypes out of the laboratory and into the field, companies need fully-functional prototypes. Thus, in-house rapid prototyping of electronic circuits has become mission-critical. With 3D printing of electronics, security and aerospace R&D teams can streamline prototyping – reducing time to delivery from months to days. This lowers both R&D overhead and lead times, and enhances innovation and productivity as companies are able to test more and more cost-effectively.
The U.S.-based global defense and aviation provider plans to leverage its DragonFly Pro to produce functional electronic circuitry. Advancements in aerospace technology have increased demand for complex circuits not easily produced by conventional subtractive manufacturing. The DragonFly Pro enables the user to fit more features into each compact device – customizing functional parts, lightweighting, and reducing overall part-count to simplify assembly, reduce potential points of failure, and enhance reliability.
"Our disruptive technology, the first of its kind, enables defense and aviation companies to prototype their innovative products without sacrificing either convenience or security,” noted Amit Dror, CEO of Nano Dimension. “The ability to manufacture electronics in-house is especially appealing in the defense sector, where privacy and IP are crucially important.
