Nano Dimension Patents New Hybrid Process for Electronic 3D Printing

by • April 19, 2016 • No Comments

  • The Israeli-based 3D printing company Nano Dimension has been pioneering the field of 3D printed electronics for really a few time now. Last month, they partnered with 3D printing service provider FATHOM to bring their PCB printing device, the DragonFly 2020, to the public eye. The company, which not long ago got listed on the NASDAQ, has come a long way in research and development with electronics 3D printing, and it appears which the new spark is yet there. A couple of days ago, Nano Dimension filed a patent application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, which detailed their new process for 3D printing electronic circuit printing, which works by simultaneously curing and sintering two types of ink, conductive metal ink and insulator ink.

    “The current standard curing and sintering approach uses a number of various processs to cure and sinter the inks,”Nano Dimension writes in their blog. “Each such process adds cost and complexity, while this new approach has the next to reduce both.”

    With this newly patented innovation, Nano Dimension hopes to reduce the number of significant processs inside their 3D printing devices, which can lead to lower production costs, increased speed and reliability, and a less bulky hardware process. “The current standard curing and sintering approach uses a number of various processs to cure and sinter the inks,”Nano Dimension said. “Each such process adds cost and complexity, while this new approach has the next to reduce both.” In order to reach this new approach, Nano Dimension used one-of-a-kind chemically-composed conductive inks which were manufactured inside their own laboratory. These inks are engineered with nanoparticles which absorb radiant energy, which produces plasmonic waves on the surface of these nanoparticles.

    As soon as these plasmonic waves are created, they’re immediately converted into heat, and the high surface energy produces a fusion of the silver nanoparticles. Making use of this one-of-a-kind sintering process, Nano Dimension is able-bodied to complete a final uniform metallic trace. Making use of the radiation emitted of their electronics 3D printing innovation, the photoinitiated insulating ink is instantaneously cured, and features excellent mechanical durablity and high thermal resistance.

    Since 2012, Nano Dimension has been paving the path for 3D printing electronic circuits, and seem set to send a spark through this growing field with their newly patented innovation. By implementing simultaneous sintering and curing, next electronic 3D printing devices have the next to be additional inexpensive
    -bodied, faster, and additional reliable-bodied than at any time preceding.
