What is Micro Dispensing nFD?

nScrypt, Inc. manufactures micro dispensing and 3D Printing systems. The company has extensive experience in dispensing applications with a wide range of materials which can process a number of materials including ceramics. The company’s patented SmartPump provides a significant edge in speed and precision over other micro-dispense pump technologies. nScrypt’s 3D printing technology utilizes patent-pending nFD extrusion system which reaches printing temperatures of more than 400°C and the smallest commercial prints, less than 50 microns.


  • High resolution capabilities
  • Slow technological evolution
  • Multiple materials support
  • Limited part size
  • Advanced extruder technology, best geometry for extrusion systems
  • Lack of market awareness

How does Micro Dispensing work?

There are more than 10,000 commercially available materials that can be dispensed by the SmartPump.  In addition to the commercial materials, a vast array of materials to include low viscosity (cP) to very high viscosities (more than 1 million cP) and including particle loaded materials are also dispensable. Applications include micro-electronic packaging, resistive devices, heater coils, printed antennas, printed electronics, ceramic structures, heterogeneous mixtures. The system’s SmartPump is able to handle extreme material variances and accommodates those using its proprietary software.  Tilts and curves in substrates are accommodated up to 45 degrees without tilting the pump. With the combination of SmartPump and nFD it is possible to combine plastics, metals, ceramics, and composites in single builds with exceptional tolerance and control.

Available Micro Dispensing machines:

nScrypt offers three systems developed specifically for 3D printing under the 3Dn brand. These include the Tabletop system and the higher-end 3Dn 300 and 3Dn 500 systems.
