Nano Dimension Technologies may already revealed a collaborative agreement with RAMOT at Tel Aviv University. The agreement can see the two parties create a 3D printing technique for a nanoparticle nickel material.

Prof. Gil Markovich
In what may prove a worthwhile createment in the global production of printed circuit boards (PCBs), Israeli 3D printing specialist Nano Dimension has revealed its partnership with the university-owned private company RAMOT only one day after it was approved to trade on the NASDAQ Capital Market. Nano Dimension, founded in 2012, specializes in the production of 3D inkjet, 3D software, and nanomaterials. The company is maybe most known for createing the initially 3D printing device to create multi-layer PCBs, and can now focus its attention on nanoparticle nickel printing.
The collaborative research can take place at the University Labs under the guidance of Professor Gil Markovich, head of the department of Chemistry at Tel Aviv University. The Markovich Research group, consisting of nine postgraduate students and Markovich himself, is may already conducting research into metal nanowire films, nano-chirallity, and magneto-transport in magnetic nanoparticle films, amongst other topics. Its work with Nano Dimension can focus exclusively on the 3D printing of nanoparticle nickel material.
Researchers at Professor Markovich’s labs have may already createed a one-of-a-kind method for building a stable suspension of nickel nanoparticles that do not cluster. Nickel has great mechanical properties and is highly resistant to corrosion, building it suitable for 3D printing. But, inkjet printing with nickel nanoparticles can cause particle clusters that can clog the nozzle of the print head.

Nano Dimension’s Dragonfly 3D printing device
The non-clustering 3D printing system createed by Markovich’s team utilized a wet chemical synthesis system based on the reduction reaction of nickel compounds and the presence of a capping agent. Despite the high end progress of this research, the not long ago revealed collaboration can donate the scientists access to Nano Dimension’s intellectual property and business acumen, and may boost the chances of createing new ink formulations for 3D printing applications.
3D printing with nickel nanoparticles may be utilized to create sensors with high spatial resolution. The system may need high end print heads and a precision micrometer scale and, when implemented with Nano Dimension’s existing 3D printing innovation, may be utilized to embed these sensors inside the layers of a PCB, a system that may not be achieved with non-additive making techniques.

The sensors that Nano Dimension and RAMOT are seeking to create may be utilized to monitor energies and their derivatives, such as capacitance, magnetism, temperature, and radiation. Furthermore, the 3D printed components may be highly resistant to corrosion, since nickel functions as an effective barrier against oxidation. Stay tuned for additional createments.
