Nano Dimension announces that Nanofabrica Ltd—and its 3D additively manufacturing (AM) printing system the Tera 250—have been officially renamed following the acquisition by Nano Dimension in April 2021. The company is now known as “Nano Dimension’s Fabrica Group,” and its micro AM technology printing system the Tera 250 is now the Fabrica 2.0 3D Additive Micro Manufacturing Machine.
Since commercializing the Fabrica 2.0 machine, Fabrica Group has been positioning micro-3D printing as a viable alternative to traditional micro plastic fabrication technologies. The key advantage is the way in which 3D printing allows for the design and production of complex micro geometries at no additional cost, according to the company. The requirement for no tooling means that designs can be altered with minimal expense, and the potential for mass customization is now open to players in the micro manufacturing sector, the company adds.
Fabrica 2.0 is used in the areas of medical devices, micro-optics, semi-conductors, micro-electronics, micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS), micro fluidics and life sciences, making products such as casings for micro-electronics, micro springs, micro actuators and micro sensors, and numerous medical components such as micro valves, micro syringes, and surgical devices.
“The acquisition by Nano Dimension allows Fabrica to accelerate its commercialization,” says Jon Donner, general manager and head of Fabrica’s sales team. “The Fabrica 2.0 machine is appropriate for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in all industry sectors that are looking to manufacture small parts or larger parts with micron level accuracy. With Nano Dimension’s support and geographical wingspan, we are accelerating our sales efforts toward the goal of introducing our technology to all relevant vertical markets across all geographies.”
“’Fabrica Group & Fabrica 2.0 Machine’ branding indicates our expanded focus on any fault-tolerant AM fabrication not solely AM-Electronics,” says Yoav Stern, chief executive officer and chairman of Nano Dimension, shared. “Moreover, Fabrica Group’s upcoming generations of machines are planned to be equipped with our unique patented Deep Learning/Machine learning for neural-fabrication-network, enabling smart real-time self-correcting manufacturing.”
