NESS ZIONA, Israel, November 2019 – Nano Dimension Ltd., a leading additive electronics provider (NASDAQ, TASE: NNDM), announced today that US-based reseller, Accucode, is opening the world’s first service bureau for 3D printing of electronics, focused on serving the market with end-to-end prototyping and low-volume additive manufacturing services for electronics.

Nano Dimension also announced the sale of a second DragonFly LDM precision additive manufacturing system to Accucode. Accucode, a technology systems integrator and software development firm, now has one DragonFly system installed in its Colorado-based facility in Denver and the other in Richardson, Texas. The two DragonFly systems will support Accucode’s 3D electronics service bureau, which is currently open for business.

With the DragonFly system’s unique ability to 3D-print conductive metal and polymer simultaneously with high precision, the service bureau will provide a cost-effective production solution to produce one-off functional boards and test them quickly. The solution also allows experimentation with unique designs that are not constrained by traditional PCB manufacturing processes. Services offered include products and components with integrated functionality such as printed circuit boards with side mounted and inserted components, functional capacitors, vertically stacked integrated circuits, DC-to-DC power converters, antennas and RF devices. The new service bureau will be co-managed by Accucode 3D, the 3D printer division of Accucode, and The 3D Printing Store, which recently merged with Accucode 3D to offer 3D design, printing and scanning services for business and consumers.

“Building on our experience of thousands of additively manufactured electronics parts, with the help and collaboration of Accucode’s dedicated service bureau, we are now scaling our business to enlarge our reach. Customers that wish to benefit from our disruptive technology can easily have it now through a service thanks to Accucode.” said Amit Dror, CEO of Nano Dimension. “For us, the opening of a dedicated service bureau represents Accucode’s strong belief in our technology and the continuation of a long and prosperous journey together to expand our market reach.”

“We have seen increasing growth in the number of businesses looking for functional electrical prototyping and manufacturing solutions. Nano Dimension’s technology and expertise helps us provide a direct path to achieve that,” said Debra Wilcox, CEO of Accucode 3D and The 3D Printing Store. “We are very excited about the prototyping and manufacturing options the Nano Dimension’s unique DragonFly technology offers our customers across aerospace, telecom, consumer electronics, and IoT devices. It provides the best solution to reduce prototyping costs, development time and geometric complexities, while providing our customers with a clear path to innovate and stay ahead of the competition.”

“Additive manufacturing is ready to disrupt the electronics manufacturing sector,” said Kevin Price, CEO of Accucode. “Our teams in Dallas, Denver and Ireland are ready to support customers through the disruption processes. Our service bureau can design, print, populate, and deliver working electronics in days. We can potentially deliver this at a significant cost savings over today’s production options. From quantities of 1 to the 1,000’s. This is a dream come true for designers, inventors and manufacturers of many things. Nano Dimension has been a great partner and we are excited by this opportunity.”
