3D printing electronics company Nano Dimension is marking its first entry into the Japanese market with the sale of a DragonFly Pro 3D printer to CMK Corporation, one of Japan’s largest manufacturers of printed circuit boards (PCBs).

The Tokyo-based company will utilize the 3D printer to achieve faster prototyping cycles for printed wiring boards (PWBs) in the early development stage. Additionally, CMK Corporation plans to use the DragonFly Pro machine to experiment with new PWB shapes and layer structures to fulfill various client needs.

CMK Corporation has been in business for over 50 years and is an expert in PCB and PWB production. Though the company operates in various industries, about 70% of its sales are from automotive electronics, including circuit prototypes for car accessories, complex electronic control systems, engine management systems and applications for autonomous vehicles. Notably, the Asia-Pacific market is reportedly the largest regional market for automotive PCBs.

The addition of the DragonFly Pro 3D printer to its production will enable CMK Corporation to speed up its design and development process for new PWBs in a cost effective way. The technology enables electronics producers to keep prototyping in house, ensuring a secure, time and cost efficient process.

“We are thrilled to expand into the innovative Japanese electronics market and look forward to working directly with CMK, a global leader in electronics and PCB technologies,” said Gilad Reshef, APAC director at Nano Dimension. “Our experts have the capability and know-how for PCB technologies and accelerate the development of precision additive manufacturing for electronics. We are the only company capable to provide this type of in-house manufacturing process, so printed electronics can offer a wide design and manufacturing freedom.”

The entry into the Japanese market is not Nano Dimension’s only recent milestone: last week the company announced it had successfully 3D printed its first IoT communication device using its DragonFly Pro.

Victor does not really exist. He is a pseudonym for several writers in the 3D Printing Media Network team. As a pseudonym, Victor has also had a fascinating made-up life story, living as a digital (and virtual) nomad to cover the global AM industry. He has always worked extra-hard whenever he was needed to create unique content. However, lately, as our editorial team has grown, he is mostly taking care of publishing press releases.
