ETEC® P4K

ETEC®

P4K

For 3D printing ultra-high resolution parts in volume

Designed for a 24/7 production environment, the P4K 3D printer can run lights out with little to no user intervention required. Easily print parts at volume with the quality, surface finish and tolerances needed for end-use applications.

P4K is the highest resolution advanced DLP printer with the largest build envelope and deploys artificial intelligence in pixel modulation to deliver the highest accuracy parts.

Custom-Tailored
Production 3D Printing

P4K is the opposite of one-size-fits-all 3D printing solutions. From four distinctive models, you can choose your optical configuration based on part size, feature-size requirements and throughput and tailor a solution that best suits your manufacturing needs.

With resolutions of between 23µm-90µm on the X and Y axes, the P4K can easily produce detailed parts in a range of sizes. From just 2 mm, smaller than two grains of sand, to 230 mm – about the size of 3 credit cards stacked end to end.

Benefits of the ETEC P4K

Accuracy down to the micron level

The P4K comes in four distinct models with four different native pixel sizes (XY resolution): 35, 62, 75, and 90 microns. Each model is equipped with a 4K projector. Moreover, the use of industrial DLP chips, as opposed to cheaper consumer-grade chips, and a custom-designed optical train deliver high contrast and minimal distortion in the projected picture.

Fully automated manufacturing

The P4K allows you to take control of the manufacturing workflow with:

  • automated job queuing managed by an onboard processor and hard drive
  • automated job completion alerts to help minimize printer downtime

Powered by ETEC’s software, the P4K is perfect for remotely-managed enterprise use.
You can send jobs to multiple machines around the globe through a dashboard and easily monitor the printing progress, job status, layer count and more. 

To further limit downtime, the build plate can be quickly swapped, allowing a new job to be started minutes after a print is completed.

  Intuitive software

P4K has a user-friendly software, Envision One RP, that automates all parts of the printing process, including support generation and part orientation. You can take advantage of the most up-to-date tools and print processes thanks to the P4K’s over-the-air updates for both software and firmware.

Easy material changes

  • Less than two minutes of material changes allow users to produce a wide variety of parts with properties tailored to different applications.
  • Excess material can be stored for months, helping you to achieve further cost efficiencies.
