DragonFly 2020 3D PCB printer now distributed by Emona


DragonFly 2020 3D PCB printer now distributed by EmonaNano Dimension, which develops the DragonFly 2020 3D PCB printer, has announced the appointment of Emona as its Australian and New Zealand distributor.

The DragonFly 2020 3D provides electronics professionals with the benefits of 3D printing by bringing together an extremely precise inkjet deposition printer, high performance silver nano-particle conductive and dielectric inks, as well as dedicated software.

It produces professional multilayer printed circuit boards (PCBs) and 3D circuitry in-house and within hours. It also offers the flexibility to print an entire board or just part of a circuit so users can develop the RF and digital sections of a board in parallel, test and iterate on the fly.

The DragonFly 2020 3D printer deposits two materials, one conductive and one dielectric, to build a complete multilayer PCB from the bottom up. Each pass of the printhead deposits dielectric and conductive material at the exact location specified by the design file.

Starting from the underside conductive traces, the materials are built up to finish with the topside conductors, which means that vias are built up, drop by drop as blind, open or complete.

Plated and non-plated through-holes are created by repeatedly leaving a space at a particular XY coordinate, which builds surrounding materials up around a void. The dielectric then ends up as a solid piece within which the conductive traces are positioned at the precise XYZ coordinates specified.
