Nano Dimension Ltd., a supplier of Additively Manufactured Electronics (AME) and multi-dimensional polymer, metal & ceramic Additive Manufacturing (AM) 3D printing solutions, has had a breakthrough in developing a critical material for the advancing additively manufactured electronics (AME).
Materials, which are commonly known as consumables, are an important factor in the success of additive manufacturing at an industrial scale. The functionality of the materials and their acceptance according to industry standards are both critical. Nano Dimension's launch of INSU200, a dielectric ink with industry-leading thermo-mechanical properties, addresses both with increased functionality and greater alignment with industry standards, even going so far as to set new standards.
In terms of functionality, the new material can withstand the demands of Restriction of Hazardous Substances (“ROHS”) compliant reflow soldering processes. With regards to industry standards, the new material aligns with a number of reliability standards set by IPC, the leading global association for the electronics industry, and the FED (Fachverband Elektronik-Design e.V.) in Europe.
“We are proud to share this breakthrough in materials with our customers and the industry. When we set out a strategic plan in 2021, materials development was a core focus for our R&D team. The reality of additive manufacturing is that no matter how good the printer may be, materials must also be leading. This development achieves just that with improved functionality and critical industry standard adherence without which wider adoption would be greatly limited,” said Yoav Stern, CEO and a member of the Board of Directors of Nano Dimension.
INSU200 will be available for customers in Q1 of 2024.
Nano Dimension’s vision is to transform existing electronics and mechanical manufacturing into Industry 4.0 environmentally friendly & economically efficient precision additive electronics and manufacturing by delivering solutions that convert digital designs to electronic or mechanical devices—on demand, anytime, anywhere.
