Israeli 3D printer company Nano Dimension, developer of advanced 3D printed electronics systems and conductive inks, has today announced an agreement with 3D printing and advanced manufacturing expert FATHOM to introduce Nano Dimension’s DragonFly 2020 3D printer to the Silicon Valley and greater West Coast area, often referred to as the heart of the country's electronics industry.

The DragonFly 2020 3D printer is the world’s first 3D printer dedicated to printing multi-layer PCBs. Combining proprietary 3D injket, 3D software and nanomaterial technology, the DragonFly has been in development for a few years now, and Nano Dimension has steadily been gaining both interest and investments for its first-of-its kind 3D printed electronics technology. Most recently, Nano Dimension secured over a million dollars in investments from Israel’s Chief Scientist and was approved to trade on the NASDAQ Market.

Earlier this year, the Israeli company also warmed us up with an announcement that it had signed an agreement with global company Flex to manufacture and supply the DragonFly 2020. Today’s agreement with FATHOM is therefore the closest and most promising sign yet that Nano Dimension is finally ready to launch their exciting electronics 3D printer to the public.

FATHOM, headquartered in San Francisco, is an industry-leading advanced manufacturer, distributer and service provider that combines additive manufacturing technologies with proven traditional methods to help bring companies from concept to prototype faster and more efficiently than ever.

Driven to "make the unmakeable", FATHOM’s services include CNC machining, urethane casting, rapid tooling, injection molding, modeling fishing, contract R&D, and of course, it is an expert in all forms of 3D printing (FDM, PolyJet, SLA, SLS and DMLS) and an authorized Stratasys partner. Last year, the FATHOM acquired an advanced data analytics software that allows them to further streamline and optimize their 3D printing services like never before.

This area of expertise, as well as its strategic location near  Silicon Valley and the heart country’s electronics industry, make FATHOM an ideal partner to help introduce Nano Dimension to the U.S. market.

"FATHOM has an excellent reputation and the results back it up," said Simon Fried, Chief Business Officer of Nano Dimension. "We are thrilled to be working with such a professional and successful team."

"FATHOM will help bring us even closer to our key customers because it is well known as one of the most creative and best performing 3D printing services companies in the country," Fried continued. "With headquarters in San Francisco, close to the heart of the country's electronics industry, FATHOM is well positioned to promote and service such an innovative 3D inkjet system."

"FATHOM is very excited to work with the Nano Dimension team because both companies share the same vision of changing the way products are designed and manufactured," said Michelle Mihevc, FATHOM Principal and Co-Founder. "Nano Dimension is leading the way in the 3D printed electronics space and we are honored to work with them on their new product introduction for the United States."

Combining their manufacturing expertise and unique technologies, FATHOM and Nano Dimension will speed up electronics prototyping in the product development process, giving manufacturers the ability to produce and integrate 3D printed PCB’s into advanced electronic systems and devices.

Of course, the only question that now remains is that of time. Previously, the company had indicated that the DragonFly 2020 PCB 3D printer would be available in 2016, and as the year moves forward, we expect further announcements in the very near future.

Now if only they could make a 3D printer to print a 3D printer just like itself, and an arm or small robot to assemble it together.
