Nano Dimension Ltd, Waltham, Massachusetts, USA, has received a purchase order from a supplier to the US government defence industry for a DragonFly IV Additive Manufacturing machine.
The un-named customer is a supplier to the US government defence community, in particular the intelligence ecosystem, which leverages solutions designed to support the rapidly evolving technological environment. The customer has reportedly identified the DragonFly IV’s Additive Manufacturing process as a critical means to advance innovation in a way that other electronics manufacturing technologies cannot achieve.

The DragonFly IV AM machine simultaneously deposits proprietary conductive and dielectric substances, while integrating in-situ capacitors, antennas, coils, transformers, and electromechanical components. The outcomes are high-performance electronic devices which are enablers of autonomous intelligent drones, cars, satellites, smartphones, and in vivo medical devices. In addition, these products are said to enable iterative development, IP safety, fast time-to-market, and device performance gains.
“Many of us, almost all of Nano Dimension’s management and a majority of our employees, have had prolonged and intense periods of our lives serving our countries in the defence forces, be it Air Force, Special Forces, Government Intelligence Agencies and others,” stated Yoav Stern, chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Nano Dimension. “As such, we are proud to be able to supply a unique group like this customer with technologies that will help fulfil national missions while hopefully reducing risks and saving people’s lives. It is an honour for us to be a business partner of such people, missions, and efforts.”
