Italian start-up Yndetech recently added its 700th customer in just three years, producing high quality dental implants and other dental devices on its four ProX® DMP 100 3D metal printers from 3D Systems.
Dental technicians upload their dental CAD files to the Yndetech site or send them via email by 3:00pm. Using 3D Systems' Phenix dental software, the Yndetech operator nests the various devices for printing on the ProX DMP 100's plate. Within three hours, the files are ready to print overnight. The next morning, the parts undergo post-processing and are sent to customers by courier by 5:00pm. Fifty to sixty dental devices are produced this way each day.
"My partner, Francesco Grande, and I realized that the quality of the pieces we were seeing from the DMP 100 was absolutely outstanding. We shared these results with the dental technicians in the area and the feedback was very positive," said Emidio Cennerilli, president and CEO, Yndetech.
"Today we are printing a complete portfolio of dental devices with this laser melting technology using 3D Systems' cobalt-chrome material, including bridges, abutments, and implant bars," explained Emidio. "Cobalt-chrome has many advantages for dental applications such as biocompatibility, high wear resistance, easy to polish, chrome makes it more resistant to corrosion, and the very smooth surface finish makes it difficult for bacteria to attach to it."
As a result of the Yndetech's superior quality and processes, the company is certified for ISO 9001 and also ISO 13485 to manufacture medical and dental parts according to strict customer and regulatory requirements.
"We are pleased to see a young company like Yndetech succeed so rapidly in a competitive environment where absolute accuracy and predictability are expected," said Wayne Davey, General Manager, EMEA & India, 3D Systems. "Their success confirms the quality of our complete digital dentistry solutions, which include software, plastic and metal materials, 3D printers and on demand manufacturing. We encourage all dental labs, clinics and service providers to compare the quality and precision of our regulatory-approved solutions for the complete range of dental applications."
