Nano Dimension Ltd., a leader in the field of 3D printed electronics (NASDAQ, TASE: NNDM), announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Nano Dimension Technologies, filed a patent application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for the development of a new nanometric conductive ink based on a unique synthesis.
The new nanoparticle synthesis minimizes the size of the silver nanoparticles in the company’s ink products, to a size as small as 4 nanometers.
“We believe that accurate control of nanoparticles’ size and surface properties will allow for improved performance of the DragonFly 2020 3D printer, currently in development,” said a company spokesman.
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 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.
