The dental denture 3d metal printer is currently the only small format system that can use a variety of lasers. It uses two laser beams to manufacture dental products 10 times faster than traditional dental milling machines. In addition, the small 3D printer has another innovative feature-digital connection. With a wireless connection to the milling machine, the 3d printer can print implantable dentures. Implantable dentures can not only replace visible teeth, but also provide roots to anchor them. TRUMPF’s latest products are helping to realize the industrialization of dental 3D printing.
The traditional method requires dental technicians to manually make molds and cast parts. People spend a lot of time and effort to manually make dental bridges, crowns and other dental prostheses. The digital option is to create a 3D model on the computer as a blueprint for the milling machine. When the three-dimensional model is completed, the system manufactures parts on the platform, and then the final machining is performed by the milling machine.
The multi-laser processing capability of the dental denture 3d metal printer allows the system to manufacture at least 80 teeth in less than three hours, which makes 3D printing ten times faster than traditional methods. Relevant experts point out that the quality of 3D printing is higher because the system does better in drawing tooth structures.
The dental denture 3d metal printer is equipped with a digital link to the milling machine. Experts said: “More and more dentures are being mass produced, especially in Asia, which explains why supporting digital workflows is so important. The connection to the milling machine is a key milestone step towards automated mass production.”
This innovative feature allows the system to print implantable dentures. For patients with no remaining teeth, implantable dentures are necessary. Since the implant and the prosthesis are bolted, the 3D printer must work with extremely precise precision to ensure that there is no deviation in fit. If there is even the slightest deviation, this tooth may loosen. The upgraded IT interface of the dental denture 3d metal printer allows it to print such precise specifications, while the milling machine can recognize the teeth printed by the platform and adjust and align it accordingly.
Experts believe: “Implanted dentures are the fastest growing part of the global dental industry. Dental denture 3d metal printers are designed to respond to this important market and will make dentures an affordable’luxury item’ for more and more patients .”
