“One step closer” to commercialization 

The increase in revenues can be attributed to subsequent beta deliveries of the DragonFly 2020 machine, and more use by its selected customers. As of this quarter, the company has almost doubled its supply of DragonFly 2020s, which are now installed in 13 locations including advanced manufacturer FATHOM, U.S. electronics company PHYTEC and anonymous users in defence, medicine and transportation.

Amit Dror, Nano Dimension’s CEO, comments,

The successful delivery of an additional six DragonFly 2020 3D printers during the first quarter doubled our number of beta sites around the world, bringing us one step closer to our primary objective of commercialization. With thousands of unsolicited requests for information on our products, I am confident that we are on track to meet our goal to begin commercial sales of our DragonFly 2020 3D printer by year end.
