Carbon recently signed an agreement with DENTAC and DREVE, CAD/CAM denture company and specialist in dental materials, in order to deliver 3D manufacturing solution for the dental market.
We have often read about Carbon in the fashion industry, its collaborations with adidas are often portrayed, its investments or release of new materials… and yet the company’s solutions go beyond this industry.
Today, the digital 3D Manufacturing company aims to bring its contribution to the dental world with the introduction of new 3D-printed dentures with DENTCA; and gingiva masks and trays with DREVE.
3D printing is not new to the dental market
Additive manufacturing quickly evolves in the dental market. Dental laboratories increasingly used 3D printers to customize their products. Fischler Dental AG is an example of this type of laboratories in Europe.
Carbon’s solution enables dental labs to easily design and manufacture customized and quality products. The manufacturer’s 3D printers, its wide range of industrial dental materials and its software will enable dental labs to improve their work. Brian Ganey, General Manager of Carbon’s Oral Care Business said: “But we don’t stop there: Carbon also provides continuous one-to-one service and support, meaning we engage closely with each of our dental customers to understand their individual requirements and develop new production-quality materials, so the range of materials will continue to grow. We’re there at every step of the process.”
Carbon’s fusing light and oxygen enable to rapidly produce products from a pool of resin. Its Digital Light SynthesisTM (DLS) technology and programmable and biocompatible liquid resins deliver a complete solution for all dental production needs.
Everything is digitally traceable here. A unique ID can automatically be engraved or embossed on any part. This unique ID can be used to identify the digital historical record of the part, including identifying the specific printer, resin, and even post-processing protocols that were involved in making that part – which is incredibly valuable for highly regulated industries like dental, where the FDA will increasingly require part-specific data to ensure product performance and patient safety.
