Orthodent Laboratory to automate resin removal and surface finishing DLS orthodontic solutions

Stay up to date with everything that is happening in the wonderful world of AM via our LinkedIn community.

Orthodent Laboratory (ODL), a company active in the digitalization of orthodontic solutions is working with PostProcess Technologies to develop orthodontic-specific finishing solutions to use with Carbon DLS technology.

As innovators in the orthodontic lab space, ODL developed a proprietary system that streamlines the orthodontic appliance fitting method. ODL implements Carbon’s DLS 3D printers to develop custom orthodontic solutions that are fit to 99.9% accuracy using ODL’s revolutionary 3D intraoral scans. This method eliminates unnecessary “chair time” while delivering unparalleled turnaround times and appliance accuracy.

To further advance their automated workflow, ODL has selected two automated post-printing solutions – the PostProcess DEMI Resin Removal solution and PostProcess RADOR Surface Finishing solution. While the DEMI leverages patented, software-driven Submersed Vortex Cavitation (SVC) technology and additive formulated chemistries to optimize resin removal processes, the RADOR utilizes advanced vibratory technology to surface finish printed appliances to their desired roughness average. Both solutions will bring improved efficiency and safety and increased throughputs to ODL’s additive manufacturing operation.

“Much like PostProcess, we entered our industry to revolutionize it and drive digital innovation. Both the DEMI and RADOR are bringing us closer to a fully automated workflow, and simultaneously bolstering our operation with smart solutions that streamline our processes and help us upkeep the high product quality standards we are nationally recognized for,” said Michael Wright, President of ODL.

“Not only do ODL and PostProcess both hail from Western New York, but our value propositions align in terms of leveraging additive for streamlined digitalization,” commented Nate Harris, VP of Sales, North America. “We look forward to continuing our collaboration with ODL as they take on the digitalization of the orthodontic segment on a national scale.”

Victor does not really exist. He is a pseudonym for several writers in the 3D Printing Media Network team. As a pseudonym, Victor has also had a fascinating made-up life story, living as a digital (and virtual) nomad to cover the global AM industry. He has always worked extra-hard whenever he was needed to create unique content. However, lately, as our editorial team has grown, he is mostly taking care of publishing press releases.
