Additive Manufacturing for the Dental Industry - Final dental products on the basis of industrial 3D printing.

Additive Manufacturing is a 3D printing process that builds up parts layer. Fully integrated dental solutions from EOS permit the manufacture of final dental products and a process with high reproducibility and constantly high quality. It doesn't matter whether you are producing crowns and bridges or removable partial dentures, with EOS Additive Manufacturing solutions you always get exceptional value for money. Laboratories and manufacturing services providers can thus work much more efficiently.

Additive Manufacturing has been available to produce crowns and bridges since 2005. With over 60 installed systems worldwide, it is the most widespread solution on the market. Around 6.8 million units are currently being produced with these machines every year. Proof enough that the hardware and process have established themselves in dental technology. The CE-certified material EOS CobaltChrome SP2 (CE 0537) and the EOSINT M 270 system are used for the digital production of crowns and bridges. Both elements of the process chain come from EOS and satisfy the high quality standards for medical products. The finished products comply with the relevant standards EN 1641 as well as EN ISO 22674.

Fast and economical production of top-quality dental prostheses

The EOS systems work very accurately and can produce around 450 units at low cost within 24 hours. The digitally produced dental prosthesis is of a constantly high quality. Following the construction process, the dental prosthesis only has to be separated from the platform and finished. The composite strength of the ceramic veneer is outstanding compared to other manufacturing techniques. Hardly any personnel are needed to operate the EOS system. This means that two production cycles can be run per day depending on the daily number of units and capacity utilisation and up to 80,000 units can be produced each year. People are only needed to set up and unload the system. The Additive Manufacturing of dental prostheses is an industrial production process and, thanks to the high productivity of the system, the production costs fall whilst the quality of the final products remains consistently high.
