Getting to Know Your Designer
In this issue, we examine how fabs work with their design customers, educating them on the critical elements of fabrication needed to be successful, as well as the many tradeoffs involved. How well do you really know your customer? What makes for a closer, more synchronized working relationship?
In this issue, the biggest names in PCB manufacturing share their economic outlook for the upcoming year and beyond. As you will see, they were all bullish on our industry, but there was some apprehension as well. No one wants to get burned by another the supply chain disruption.

Nano Dimension Files Patent for Printing Multimaterial 3D ObjectsJanuary 6, 2016 | Nano Dimension
Estimated reading time: 1 minute
Nano Dimension, a leading printing electronics company in the area of 3D printing, announced today that Nano Dimension Technologies, a fully owned subsidiary of Nano Dimension, has filed a patent application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for the printing of 3D models, which includes electronic conductors.
The company has developed an innovative approach to print objects in 3D that contain conductive traces – a process the new patent would cover. Nano Dimension was able to make this new technological development as a result of its work developing materials and 3D printers for multilayer PCB prototyping.
The sintering of a printed metal conductor within a 3D printed polymer allows for complex connectors to be 3D printed and also makes it possible to 3D print molded connectors directly onto electronic circuits. The newly developed process may also be applied to 3D printing of non-flat electronic circuits as well as structural objects with embedded electronic circuits.
The materials and processes required for 3D printing objects containing semiconductors may result in a significant breakthrough for the industry, enabling the creation of freeform electronic products that cannot be created using current circuit manufacturing technologies.
About Nano Dimension
Nano Dimension, founded in 2012, focuses on development of advanced 3D printed electronics systems. Nano Dimension's unique products combine three advanced technologies: 3D inkjet, 3D software and nanomaterials. The company's primary products include the first 3D printer dedicated to printing multi-layer PCBs (printed circuit boards) and advanced nanotechnology-based conductive and dielectric inks.
AIM Solder, a leading global manufacturer of solder assembly materials for the electronics industry, is pleased to announce its participation in the upcoming SMTA Capital Expo & Tech Forum taking place on March 7 at Sweeney Barn in Manassas, Virginia.
It’s a well-known fact that if your company is not growing and moving forward every single day, it is dying. The same rule applies to technology companies: To stay alive, you must grow your technology by keeping up with your customers’ product technology needs. Too many printed circuit board fabricators are dying a slow death because they are not willing or able to invest the time, energy, money, and passion to always work on their technology.
ROCKA Solutions is excited to announce its participation in the upcoming SMTA Dallas and SMTA Houston Expo & Tech Forums. The SMTA Dallas event will take place on Tuesday, March 19, 2024 at the Plano Event Center, followed by the Houston Expo on Tuesday, March 30, 2024 at the Stafford Centre.
When it comes to business-to-business (B2B) customer service, it is often the little things that matter. While many companies focus on the big things, they ignore the little "softer things" that really create a great customer experience. I truly believe that the higher the technology a company produces, the lousier its customer service. It's as if those companies producing the highest tech products feel they deserve a pass for the easier, always important but more mundane, aspects of customer service.
