DTE set to scale with support from EIT Manufacturing
REYKJAVIK, ICELAND – Jul 20, 2022
DTE (www.dte.ai), the leader in real-time intelligence from liquid metals, will be supported by EIT Manufacturing, the largest innovation community in the manufacturing industry in Europe, to continue contributing to circularity and Industry 4.0 in the metals industry.
DTE is a pioneer in innovation for metals intelligence with a breakthrough solution to safely analyze the chemical composition of liquid metals continuously and in real-time. This innovation enables customers to generate predictive intelligence from their data, supporting critical decisions during the metals production process to maximize sustainability, efficiency, safety, and value.
Traditionally, chemical composition analysis is performed at regular intervals by human intervention; DTE’s solution eliminates waiting times for test results and make the overall analysis process safer by removing the associated risks with human sampling. Continuous checks also increase precision and enable recycled materials to be incorporated as a larger part of the smelt. For the first time, EIT Manufacturing’s support will contribute to serving the customers that DTE has and to expanding IREAS, DTE’s metals intelligence solution, into new metals and materials.
“DTE is a very good example of how technology and innovation, combined with a strong team, contributes to efficiency, value and sustainability,” commented Kaitlin McGovern, Senior Program Manager at EIT Manufacturing, “At EIT Manufacturing we believe in supporting companies like DTE, not only to foster innovation and growth but also to contribute to a greener, safer and more efficient manufacturing industry.”
“We are thrilled to have been selected to receive the advice and financial support from EIT Manufacturing,” commented Diego Areces, CEO of DTE, “This is a testament of our customers’ trust in our team’s drive as well as the European manufacturing community. We look forward to working together with the EIT Manufacturing stakeholders to continue contributing to a circular metals industry and to the development of the advanced materials of the future by generating unique data and intelligence out of the chemical composition of liquid metals.”
EIT Manufacturing is the largest innovation community of the European manufacturing industry, which works specifically with the aim of Europe leading innovation and promoting the development of a sustainable and competitive industry. This community, which is part of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), an organization of the European Union, brings together emerging companies, SMEs, and innovative European corporations in the manufacturing sector to promote joint commercial activities. Through specific programs, EIT Manufacturing supports startups through different services such as access to markets, financial investment and advice. Since 2021, this support has resulted in more than 300 connections between startups and corporates and active support to around 80 start-ups. EIT Manufacturing’s supported companies have received more than €10.5 million in investments since 2021.
DTE, Unlocking the Future of Metals™, is the leading innovator in real-time intelligence from liquid metals, serving customers across the metals production and manufacturing value chain through maximizing value, sustainability, safety, and efficiency for all stakeholders.
DTE’s purpose is advancing human progress with greener, safer, more efficient, and more valuable metals, contributing to the 1.5-degree challenge while driving its digital transformation towards Industry 4.0 with the next generation of IIoT analysis technology. DTE provides tangible financial and environmental business outcomes from the plant floor to the business levels through valuable intelligence and predictive insights from liquid metals.

IREAS™, DTE’s unique, connected, real-time intelligence from liquid metals solution seamlessly integrates IT and OT, combining chemical composition analysis from molten metals based on liquid-phase laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LP-LIBS™) with an artificial intelligence-based analytics platform and digital metals intelligence services.
IREAS™, DTE’s Intelligent Real-Time Elemental Analysis System is the first on-market solution replacing manual sampling of cooled solid samples with autonomous reference grade compositional analytics in real time from high temperature metal. Based on DTE’s proprietary LB-LIBS™ technology, IREAS uses laser induced breakdown spectroscopy to reads the precise composition of the liquid metal surface. It reduces the wait time for compositional data from hours to seconds, enabling this data to be incorporated in real time and predictive process control, while improving the safety of human operators by distancing them from the hot metal.
