nScrypt Awarded Laser Oven Patent to Innovate Furnace Efficiency in 3D Manufacturing

Orlando, FL:  Florida-based 3D Manufacturing OEM nScrypt’s research arm, Sciperio, has received US Patent no. 1,958,246, entitled “LASER OVEN WITH TRANSPARENT CHAMBER AND EXTERNAL LASER SOURCE,” which has one independent claim and 17 dependent claims.

The patent covers a transparent vacuum chamber with one or more external lasers and internal temperature sensors.  An object placed in the chamber (which functions as an oven and can be cylindrical), can be held under a vacuum while being heated by the laser(s) through the chamber walls, which are made of material that is both transparent and capable of handling the pressure of the vacuum, for example, sufficiently thick quartz.  This allows the object to be heated locally, precisely where heat is needed, rather than heating the entire chamber.  Heating the entire vacuum chamber from the inside requires a much more complicated design, which is not energy efficient or easily scalable.

According to Dr. Ken Church, CEO of nScrypt and Sciperio:

“It’s difficult to combine high heat with a vacuum.  Placing the energy source outside and emitting through windows simplifies the vacuum chamber, potentially cutting costs for higher-temperature vacuum furnaces. Traditional furnaces heat entire volumes, a wasteful use of energy. The laser approach precisely directs energy into the object being heated, making it significantly more energy efficient.

nScrypt and Sciperio patents are available for licensing under mutually favorable terms.   On this point, Dr. Church notes, “We want to see printed electronics and 3D manufacturing move forward as an industry, with innovation lifting all boats, without patents getting in the way.”
