3D printed electronics enables Germany’s PHYTEC to go from idea to prototype in one day.
With increasing pressure to get new products to market faster, companies are constantly looking for ways to accelerate their product development cycle. In electronics development, traditional manufacturing techniques mean long and expensive lead times. Many companies find that the time it takes for numerous design iteration cycles significantly impacts product development projects.
PHYTEC is an industry leader offering innovative solutions for the industrial embedded market, and the company has made the switch to 3D printed electronics to streamline development processes. They now provide their customers with highly accurate 3D-printed PCB prototypes in just one day, produced on their own in-house Nano Dimension DragonFly 2020 3D Printer from a Gerber file. This means that design teams can get a comprehensive and intuitive review of the product at the end of each development phase, which saves time, money and improves the final product. The ability to create multiple iterations not only helps improve quality but also helps reveal potential flaws early, which eliminates the risk of costly changes in the post-production stage.
Nano Dimension‘s DragonFly 2020 3D printer is a highly accurate and versatile inkjet deposition and curing system for printing professional multilayer circuit boards. The DragonFly 2020 3D Printer represents an evolution unlike anything the industry has seen before.
The video above is an excellent testimonial to the advantages of 3D printed electronics for proof of concept, design validation and agile hardware development for companies looking to innovate and help teams get to market faster with high quality products.
With functionally accurate, 3D printed prototypes, PHYTEC can complete more design revisions in less time, empower customer feedback through an improved validation process, and help its customers accelerate time to market. In this case study, learn how Nano Dimension’s technologies for 3D printed electronics enable PHYTEC to save time and reduce cost, while also optimizing product performance.
