BIOTECH DENTAL REDUCES COSTS OF IMPLANT MOLDS WITH HP MULTI JET FUSION TECHNOLOGY
CUSTOMER AT A GLANCE
For 30 years, Biotech Dental has been a leading innovative company in the dental business and has built a reputation for quality dental implants. Philippe Veran, Founder and President of Biotech Dental, invested 10% of the company turnover to help Biotech become a leader in 3D printing.
Biotech Dental is the only company in the world that manufactures 100% of their dental prostheses using digital workflows and 3D printing coupled with other manufacturing processes like milling. Biotech Dental has developed complete digital workflows to help dentists and labs quickly scan files to Biotech’s manufacturing centers.
Biotech Dental’s mission is to create the digital future of dentistry while providing easy-to-use solutions, high-end products, and attractive prices thanks to Veran’s strong social vision.
In the face of the constant evolution of manufacturing machines and traditional technologies, Biotech Dental was essentially forced to make frequent changes in order to be more productive. Previously Biotech employed milling, turning, SLS, DLP, material jetting, and binder jetting to produce products.
Before adopting HP MJF technology, it was challenging to produce and design partial removable prostheses, such as teeth and gingiva. It took three hours for labs and four appointments for dentists to conceive the types of parts they needed, including standard shapes for teeth.
They wanted to be able to automatically design and print a two-part mold to house a metal framework and a composite printed set of teeth. The two-part mold is closed, and the resin is injected and baked. Once finished, the part extracted from the mold is polished and the prosthesis is ready. For labs, this process requires five to 10 minutes of design and two appointments for dentists.
