The Icelandic company DTE is a pioneer in the development of a solution for the analysis of the chemical composition of liquid metals. It has great potential for growth, and is supported by a collaboration agreement between EIT Manufacturing and DTE.
Quality checks of liquid metals usually only provide part of the whole picture, as checks are conducted at intervals. Technology developed by the Icelandic company DTE is bound to change that. Their solution, called IREAS, enables quality assurance staff to monitor liquid metals continuously and in real time, while before, checks were performed manually in a regular cadence – which involves a certain risk for the staff and waiting times for test results.
We enable customers to use the generated data for predictive intelligence. This will influence critical decisions during the metal production process to maximise sustainability, efficiency, safety and value. So we are pioneers in real-time metals intelligence.
Diego Areces, CEO of DTE
Moving towards circularity
The process enables the use of more recycled metals, increasing the industry’s circularity. Producers can not only reduce the cost of raw materials, but also minimise their production’s carbon footprint.
DTE’s solution moves metal production towards greater sustainability, which is a central topic for our activities at EIT Manufacturing, as we foster innovation and growth, but also want to contribute to a greener, safer and more efficient manufacturing industry. DTE combines technology and innovation with a strong team, who work to make manufacturing more efficient and sustainable. That’s a great prospect!
