Florida-based manufacturer of micro-dispensing and 3D printing equipment nScrypt has developed a tool changer for its multi-head Direct Digital Manufacturing (DDM) machines. Demonstrated on the company’s 5-axis 3Dx-700 system, a gantry-based, high-precision platform built for an unnamed military client, the tool changer allows the machine to seamlessly switch between different tool heads.
“The nScrypt tool changer turns our multi-head machines into powerful Direct Digital Manufacturing systems. It enables the user to go directly and quickly from a CAD file to a fully functioning product, complete with electronics, without manual tool changes,” explains nScrypt’s CEO, Dr. Ken Church.

“IT LOADS AND CHANGES TOOL HEADS AS NEEDED. WITH Z TRACKING, THE SYSTEM CAN ALSO PRINT CONFORMALLY, ON SURFACES OF ANY GEOMETRY. THIS SYSTEM GOES BEYOND 3D PRINTING OF PARTS TO DIGITAL MANUFACTURING OF FINISHED PRODUCTS.”

NScrypt - Operations - Manufacturing - Micro-dispensing
Founded in 2002, nScrypt has focused its operations on additive manufacturing and micro-dispensing.
Micro-dispensing involves depositing droplets of ink in volumes of less than one microliter. This process facilitates multi-material 3D printing, which has been incorporated in nScrypt’s hybrid gantry DDM system. Micro-dispensing also allows the fabrication of smart devices, conformal antennas, and microfluidic devices.
