Nano Dimensions, a company in the field of 3D printed electronics, not only attended productronica this year but also was awarded the productronica Innovation Award 2017 for its DragonFly 2020 Pro 3D Printer. As the winner in the PCB & EMS cluster, the DragonFly is recognised as the best of the best among new products designed for PCB and electronics manufacturing.
The award-winning 3D printer was publicly demonstrated for the first time in Hall B2, Booth 201 throughout the trade fair, which ran this week from 14th–17th at Munich’s Messe Munchen trade fair centre.
The productronica Innovation Award is presented every two years. Winners are chosen by an independent jury of industry experts who select the most innovative new product developments and manufacturing techniques in six categories.
Nano Dimension’s DragonFly 2020 Pro 3D Printer for professional electronics enables companies to take control of their development cycles by bringing prototyping in-house. The ground-breaking printer enables the 3D-printing of functional electronic objects such as professional PCB prototypes, antennas, molded interconnect devices and other electronics.
The printer bypasses the bottlenecks inherent in prototyping electronics, allowing product designers and engineers to benefit from fast, secure, cost-effective and agile electronics development. Companies can now innovate rapidly by printing proofs of concept, design validations, test fixtures, and multilayer PCBs.
“We are very proud and honoured that the productronica board has recognised our innovation. The DragonFly system is a phenomenal tool that enables electronics professionals to keep pace with the ever-growing demand for new devices,” said Simon Fried, Co-Founder and Chief Business Officer of Nano Dimension. “Our high-resolution multi-material 3D printing technology is transformational for electronics development because it optimises workflows and shrinks PCB design and test cycles from months or weeks to just days. More and easier iterations lead to greater innovation and better business outcomes for electronics designers and manufacturers. Receiving this important award is a very welcome validation of the strong impact we’re making on the world of electronics development.”
