EnvisionTEC is a leading global provider of 3D printing solutions for the rapid manufacture of customized products utilizing its proprietary consumables across a variety of markets. Since its first patent submission in 1999, EnvisionTEC has developed and released 3D print solutions consisting of 3D printers, print materials, replacement parts as well as training and other services. EnvisionTEC’s proprietary, multi-platform technology delivers high precision, surface quality and functionality as well as the ability to use a wide range of materials at production speeds that it believes are superior to those offered by its competitors.
EnvisionTEC 3D printing solutions use three technologies, DLP, 3SP™ and 3D-Bioplotter®. EnvisionTEC’s DLP-based technology uses a projector with a lamp as its light source and the DMD produces a high resolution bitmap that is projected onto photocurable resin voxel by voxel. EnvisionTEC’s 3SP™ technology uses a multi-cavity laser diode with an orthogonal mirror, spinning drum, and precision optics to scan the surface of the photopolymer. EnvisionTEC’s 3D-Bioplotter® 3D printing technique may be described as the deposition of multiple materials in three dimensions using pressure.
With 18 U.S. patents and 91 foreign patents, EnvisionTEC works with a strong customer and partner base in diverse sectors such as jewelry, hearing aid, dental, consumer, auto manufacturing and design companies.
