ORLANDO, FL – Florida-based microdispensing specialist nScrypt has received a patent for a shipping container-based modular system tailored for direct digital manufacturing.

The Modular Mobile Direct Digital Manufacturing System features exceptional adaptability in managing a vast spectrum of materials, spanning from high and low-temperature thermoplastics to formidable substances such as metals and ceramics, the company said.

"This shipping-containerized direct digital manufacturing system fulfills the promise of regional, local, and distributed manufacturing," said nScrypt CEO Ken Church. "It can respond in real time to changing demands, even autonomously if necessary. With a system covered by this patent, anyone can 3-D manufacture almost anything, anywhere, anytime."

DDM leverages 3-D printing and additive manufacturing techniques for the production of final-use components. With the advancement of additive methods and materials, new prospects emerge for the creation of tailored manufactured parts. This evolution within the additive realm renders numerous projects feasible, overcoming the constraints of scale economics. It empowers innovators to address a multitude of high-value design, engineering, and manufacturing dilemmas.

Apart from its 3-D printing prowess, the system includes essential 3-D manufacturing components like an electronic component pick-and-place system and a bioreactor. Notably, through the integration of nScrypt’s Factory in a Tool, this container-based system gains the capability to 3-D manufacture complete and operational electronic devices.

Besides its multifaceted functionality, this modular system presents an array of advanced features. Its collapsible design significantly improves adaptability. In addition, it comes equipped with features such as electrostatic discharge flooring, integrated communication systems (WiFi, LiFi, or satellite), ultraviolet lighting, HVAC, solar power, multi-fuel power sources, secure blockchain-based file transactions, radio frequency shielding, and even a drone landing platform.
