Nano Dimension Ltd. has been a leading supplier of Additively Manufactured Electronics (AME) and multi-dimensional polymer, metal & ceramic Additive Manufacturing (AM) 3D printing solutions. At the ongoing productronica 2023 in Munich, Germany, the company announced a breakthrough in the development of a material that will advance AME.
Nano Dimension’s launch of INSU200, a dielectric ink boasting industry-leading thermo-mechanical properties. Thus, addressing both increased functionality and greater alignment with industry standards, even going so far as to set new standards.
Materials, 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. Particularly, in terms of functionality, the new material can withstand the rigorous demands of Restriction of Hazardous Substances (ROHS) compliant reflow soldering processes.
Furthermore, with regard to industry standards, the new material aligns with several reliability standards set by IPC, the leading global association for the electronics industry, and the FED (Fachverband Elektronik-Design e.V.) in Europe.
Nano Dimension’s materials breakthrough is the result of a concerted effort by the company. Most importantly, the company has made materials science and development a core focus of its resource allocation strategy. This is evident in the approximate forty scientists and engineers working at the Company. Particularly, working across materials-dedicated research facilities and labs in Germany and Israel.
Customers and industry stakeholders will have the opportunity to see this material first-hand at the Productronica Conference in Munich, Germany. INSU200 will be available for customers in Q1 of 2024.
Meanwhile, Yoav Stern, Chief Executive Officer and a member of the Board of Directors of Nano Dimension, said since 2021, materials development was a core focus for the company’s R&D team.
In addition, Stern said, “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.”
