At Siemens Power and Gas we are utilizing the benefits of Additive Manufacturing
to increase our customers satisfaction, enhance our products and optimize our
processes along the entire value chain from R&D to services. Thereby we are using
AM for our entire portfolio, from the compressor through the combustion to the
turbine applications of our entire fleet. Based on these high-end applications and
the connected requirements, we are driving the transfer of established industrial
standards and certificates also to the AM technologies. Hence, we expect open and
transparent AM systems, allowing us to access and influence all available data at
all times online in realtime; just as in other established industries e.g. Pharma, F&B
and semiconductor. These open systems shall be connected into production lines,
with vertically and horizontally totally integrated automation solutions and also
seamlessly integrated into one end-to-end PLM ecosystem. A holistically digitalized
ecosystem, with one integrated CAx Plattform beyond the classical CAD-CAECAM
mindset and with one data format. In AM all three disciplines consistently
affect one another and hence must be considered and represented simultaneously
to enable disruptive, generative, and more efficient topologies. Innovative Topologies
increasing the overall efficiency of our turbines and therefore also enabling us
to contribute to society, by fostering the global reduction of CO2 emission.

To meet a growing demand for rapid electronics development, Nano Dimension has developed an innovative additive manufacturing solution, the DragonFly 2020 Pro 3D Printer for electronics. This breakthrough, multi-material inkjet system, incorporates inherently incompatible nano silver with a polymer. This presentation will explain development work completed and challenges that were overcome in getting a nano silver inkjet ink and a polymer ink to work together. Issues of adhesion, conductivity, mechanical stability and repeatability of the process were all addressed and overcame in creating the world’s first 3D printed electronics solution, to create 3D circuitry that incorporates conductive and non-conductive materials, and rigid and flexible polymers. 3D printed objects produced on the DragonFly 2020 Pro include sensors, antennas, molded interconnect devices (MIDs), PCB and components with conductive geometries. This presentation will show real life applications demonstrating the many advantages of 3D printed electronics, including in-house rapid prototyping which takes designs from concept to prototype in hours, rather than weeks, as in the past. Business implications include faster time to market, improved efficiency, more innovative and agile hardware development cycles and completely new design geometries, that cannot be produced in any other way – which is game changing.
