Silver or copper? Simon Fried, Nano Dimension, speaks about inkjet printing

Recently I caught up with Simon Fried, chief business officer and one of the founders of Nano Dimension, an Israeli start up that is targeting the market for printed circuit boards or PCBs.

The end goal for many people in additive manufacturing is not so much the ability to print individual components but rather to print a sub assembly or a whole object in a single process. Ultimately this also means being able to print the electronic elements of those objects, which explains why there is so much interest in Nano Dimensions.

Nano Dimension’s 3D printing is based on inkjet printing. Fried explains: “We decided that inkjet is the best technology because it has quite high throughput. It’s also the best approach for multiple material printing because you can have one head per material and you can cover quite a large area.” Read more
