Thinking that transforms.
Technology that delivers.

Our Patented STEP Technology

STEP is Selective Thermoplastic Electrophotographic Process. The core of our technology is the Electrophotographic (EP) imaging and deposition. This uses the proven high volume 2D printing process. A 2D slice of a part with part material, support, and maybe multiple materials all in one image layer, then with heat, pressure, and cooling fuse it all onto the build. This creates a fully dense part with isotropic properties in all directions. (Image on right: ABS layer on the transfer belt with part and support material).

FIRST VIABLE ALTERNATIVE TO INJECTION MOLDING

Our patented Selective Thermoplastic Electrophotographic Process (STEP) is the first additive manufacturing technology to offer a viable alternative to injection molding. Our platform combines proven 2D printing technology with a number of proprietary subsystems to evolve additive manufacturing far beyond existing technologies for plastic productions.

WHAT DIFFERENTIATES OUR PLATFORM?

The Evolve SVP platform is the first true plastics manufacturing technology to achieve mass customization, just-in-time production and dependable quality.
