Top defense and aviation multinational nabs Nano Dimension system
A U.S.-based, top-10 defense and aerospace company has agreed to purchase Nano Dimension’s DragonFly Pro 3D Printer, the only system of its type worldwide.
The DragonFly Pro additively manufactures electronics, allowing rapid prototyping agility. The unnamed company plans to leverage Nano Dimension’s additive manufacturing of electronics to accelerate development, speed prototyping, and lower risk to sensitive IP, according to a press release. The U.S.-based global defense and aviation provider plans to leverage its DragonFly Pro to produce functional electronic circuitry. Advancements in aerospace technology have increased demand for complex circuits not easily produced by conventional subtractive manufacturing. The DragonFly Pro enables the user to fit more features into each compact device – customizing functional parts, lightweighting, and reducing overall part-count to simplify assembly, reduce potential points of failure, and enhance reliability. Nano Dimension CEO Amit Dror said, “The ability to manufacture electronics in-house is especially appealing in the defense sector, where privacy and IP are crucially important."
