Nano Dimension’s (Nasdaq: NNDM) vision is to transform the electronics and similar additive manufacturing sectors into an environmentally friendly & economically efficient additive manufacturing Industry 4.0 solution, while enabling a one-production-step-conversion of digital designs into functioning devices - on demand, anytime, anywhere. Nano Dimension plans to execute on this vision by building an ecofriendly and intelligent distributed network of additively manufacturing self-learning & self-improving systems, which are designed to deliver a superior ROI to their owners as well as to Nano Dimension shareholders and stakeholders.
The DragonFly IV® system serves cross-industry High-Performance Electronic Devices (Hi-PEDs®) fabrication needs, by depositing proprietary conductive and dielectric materials simultaneously, while concurrently integrating in-situ capacitors, antennas, coils, transformers, and electromechanical components. The outcomes are Hi-PEDs® which are integral enablers of autonomous intelligent drones, cars, satellites, smartphones, and in vivo medical devices. These products enable iterative development, IP safety, fast time-to-market, and device performance gains. With DragonFly IV®, a revolution happens at the click of a button, allowing customers to go from CAD to a functional device in a matter of hours instead of weeks; creating products with better performance; reducing the size and weight of electronic parts and devices; enabling innovation; and, critically important, protecting IP, all the while limiting environmental pollution and chemical waste.
The race to develop next-generation wireless electronics is accelerating at a rapid pace. Thanks to additively manufactured electronics (AME) technology, fast-prototyping, low-entry-cost, and in-house short-run manufacturing empower millions of start-ups and companies with demanding confidentiality and accelerated innovation. We aim to build a new class of multi-beam packaged antennas and miniaturized circuit designs to advance the knowledge for next-generation (5G) mobile devices. Compact and low-cost 3D printed antennas and circuits will be delivered to circumvent the limitations of today’s mobile antennas, which are usually bulky and not compatible with future ultrafast wireless communications. The proposed AME antennas and microwave circuits should be easily integrated into mobile devices linking billions of high-speed wireless systems in a dynamic environment. New antenna prototypes with multiple dynamic beams will be created for emerging intelligent and immersive technologies, e.g. unmanned vehicles, ultra-low latency virtual reality, smart cities, and seamless telepresence on the move.
