Printing machine accessories

3Dn-accessoriesPrinting machine accessories

We offers four advanced tool heads designed to be compatible with any 3Dn or 3DX series system. These tools include the SmartPump, nFD, nMill, and the nPnP360™. These tool heads provide versatility and expand the capabilities of the printing process, allowing for multi-process fabrication and the integration of additional functionalities.

The nFD filament feeder, heated Material Extrusion (FDM or FFF) tool head and quick-change nTip pen tip are core tools for 3D printing on 3D manufacturing platforms. Use the standard nTip for 1.75 mm filament and nonstandard filaments. Remove and easily clean or switch nozzles if the nTip fails. nFD combined with its precision motion platforms produce the smoothest and most repeatable extruded parts on the market, without a post-build smoothing process. Use the smallest commercially available nTip (25μm) for extremely fine features. Add the Z-tracking feature to build conformally on structures of any shape.
The nMill is a high-speed spindle designed for micro-precision milling, drilling, and polishing. nMill is the perfect tool for the post-processing of virtually any Micro-Dispensed or Extruded material. 50,000 RPM motor and spindle with less than 1um total runout. Equipped with exclusively designed end mill for plastic processing, micro drills for high accuracy vias, and a polishing wheel for smooth finishing. Integral dust collection system keeps both the workpiece and machine debris free. Air coolant nozzle prevents thermoplastics from melting and reduces processing time. 1/8" collet accepts a wide range of bits.

The nPnP360™ is a pick and place tool head. The nPnP360 applies light pressure on the component for picking and placing, 20” Hg at 80 psi, and 360 degrees of rotation, allowing the user to orient the part with high precision. The nPnP360 uses interchangeable luer lock needles, which enables the picking and placing of various-sized components. The nPnP360 can depress 3mm after initial contact, which creates a good seal for picking, and good contact between components and pads when placing a component.

The SmartPump is a foundation of microdispensing on the 3Dn and 3DX Series tool lines. This digitally controlled positive-pressure pump's patented valving and nTip pentip (as small as 25μm) enable near-perfect starts and stops (no drooling) of materials with extreme viscosities, ranging from 1cP nanoparticle inks to well over 1 million cP flake-loaded pastes. The SmartPump can dispense more than 10,000 commercially available materials with volume control to 100 picoliters. The SmartPump is a proven, rugged Microdispensing pump that has demonstrated printed lines as small as 20μm wide and dots as small as 50μm (material dependent). A heated version is available.
