The ETEC 3D Printer Brand Launches Desktop Metal Industrial Manufacturers: A Huge Step Forward in Digital Mass Production of Polymers

Desktop Metal | February 11, 2022

On February 10, Desktop Metal, a global leader in additive manufacturing technologies for mass production, announced the launch of ETEC, a new 3D printing brand that will allow EnvisionTEC, the inventor of digital light processing (DLP) technology, to connect with industrial customers more effectively.

The new brand logo is an overhead picture of DLP's renowned construction tray, in which resin is turned into anything a buyer may dream of using a digital light projector. It's complemented by a redesigned style and feel that's structured, smooth, bold, and durable, as well as a new marketing approach.

Since 2002, EnvisionTEC 3D printers have set the standard for accuracy and surface polish in the healthcare, dental, medical, and jewelry sectors. After acquiring EnvisionTEC in 2021, Desktop Metal formed Desktop Health to focus on healthcare and dentistry customers. ETEC (pronounced "Tek") will now focus exclusively on delivering high-speed photopolymer 3D printing solutions to volume makers of consumer and industrial items.

"Desktop Metal’s integration strategy is to focus on customers and their application needs first, so we can craft the most personalized and compelling business case for them to adopt Additive Manufacturing 2.0 technologies for volume production, Our launch of ETEC and Desktop Health allows us to speak more directly to specific customers with focused needs and serve them better. In addition, ETEC offers incredibly powerful 3D printers paired with exclusive materials that are already driving a new wave of consumer and industrial innovation."

-Ric Fulop, Desktop Metal Founder and CEO.

Using 3D printing technology, materials, software, and applications in the right way, Desktop Metal wants to help more and more manufacturers move into AM 2.0, which means more design flexibility, less waste, faster time-to-market, and less money spent while making their supply chains less risky.

For instance, ETEC has teamed with Adaptive3D, another Desktop Metal company, to provide its best-in-class 3D printed photo elastomers only on ETEC additive manufacturing systems, enhancing their performance through close integration of hardware and materials.

ETEC currently has one of the most comprehensive portfolios of photopolymer 3D printing materials on the market, including Elastic Tough Rubber 90 (ETR 90), the industry's highest rip strength elastomer. ETR is used in various consumer and industrial products, including power tool adapters and recoil pads. Adaptive3D's more extensive library of elastomers could be used in more places, like shoe midsoles, seat cushions, and more.
