NESS ZIONA, Israel, July 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Nano Dimension Ltd., a leader in the field of 3D Printed Electronics (NASDAQ, TASE: NNDM), announced today that its wholly owned subsidiary, Nano Dimension Technologies, has filed a patent application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for the development of a new nanometric conductive ink, which is based on a unique synthesis.
The new nanoparticle synthesis further minimizes the size of the silver nanoparticles particles in the company's ink products. The new process achieves silver nanoparticles as small as 4 nanometers.
We believe that accurate control of nanoparticles' size and surface properties will allow for improved performance of the company's DragonFly 2020 3D printer, currently in development. The innovative ink enables lower melting temperatures and more complete sintering (fusing of particles into solid conductive trace), leading to an even higher level of conductivity.
The innovative ink has the potential to accelerate printing speeds and save ink for the 3D printing of electronics such as printed circuit boards, antennas and others. Furthermore, the ink enhances the capabilities of the company's DragonFly 2020 3D printer, and may improve the conductivity of the printed lines. The company intends to commercialize its ink products as supplementary products to its 3D printers and as separate and independent products.
