Nano Dimension (Nasdaq: NNDM) is acquiring the technology and intellectual property of the U.K.-based company Additive Flow, which supplies solutions for 3D design simulation and optimization.

Additive Flow has developed high-performance and high-quality simulation software for mechanical, thermal, and thermo-mechanical properties, along with frequency and fatigue across a range of materials and processes. Their product addresses design, production, and quality decisions, while optimizing for cost, weight, manufacturing productivity, and manufacturing yield – all simultaneously.

Nano Dimension acquires Additive Flow technology looking to drive software development in 3D design simulation and optimization Alexander Pluke, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Technology Officer of Additive Flow commented: “The Additive Flow team is thrilled to join Nano Dimension. Our solution was born out of real engineering challenges we faced to harness the capability of advanced manufacturing. Our platform is built from the ground up to handle all the complex data and decisions of digital engineering, so teams can focus on their key goals. We are fortunate to have found a great partner in Nano Dimension where our innovation can be leveraged to its maximum potential. We look forward to building on our impressive track record and continuing to develop Additive Flow’s software and enhance Nano Dimension’s leading AM and AME product offerings.”

The customer base of Additive Flow includes key vertical market segments such as advanced optics & optoelectronics, aerospace & defense, semiconductors, advanced energy, and electronics. This acquisition signals a successful milestone in Nano Dimension’s product development roadmap.

Computer-aided engineering and design components are a core part of the Company’s design-through-manufacturing product strategy. Simulation algorithms and optimization capabilities are particularly crucial for leveraging the advantages of additive manufacturing. Additive Flow’s AI and GPU (‘Graphics Processing Unit’) accelerated software will enhance the ability of Nano Dimension customers to replicate, design, and augment AME electronic components’ prototypical layouts, in a rapid and cost-effective manner. Additive Flow’s core technology will be integrated into Nano Dimension’s proprietary design package suite, FLIGHT.

Nick Geddes, Senior Chief Technology Officer of Nano Dimension, added: “We have been looking at the software market for simulation and optimization offerings for some time. There are many strong solutions in the market that do certain elements of those complicated tasks, but it is Additive Flow’s product that stood out in terms of the functionality we needed for a holistic solution, especially in the context of our requirements across AME and multi-dimensional polymer, metal and ceramic AM. The acquisition will add considerable firepower to the ability of our customers to leverage our leading digital manufacturing solutions.”
