Nano Dimension Ltd., a leading additive electronics provider (Nasdaq, TASE: NNDM), has announced the results of the Electrifying Additive Manufacturing Survey, which found nearly 91% of respondents expect 3D printed electronics will be a strategic direction. More than three quarters (76%) are already exploring the technology for design validation (31%), prototyping (40%) and low-volume custom manufacturing (29%). The global survey to help understand 3D printed electronics and its future applications. The findings show that 3D printed electronics technology is important for their agility and ability to accelerate product development, realize greater design innovation and build more complex geometries.
According to the survey, the benefits survey participants anticipate from using 3D printers for printed electronics include accelerating product development (85%), innovation (71%), the promise of agile development (62%), the ability to print complex geometries (57%), cost savings (36%) and protecting their company’s intellectual property (31%).
The survey respondents will use 3D printed electronics as: printing multilayer PCBs, manufacturing flexible electronics, creating sensors and devices for the Internet of Things, creating non-planar designs, building embedded components, antennas and RFID components, molded interconnect devices and electromagnets.
