Prodways Group launches its first automated 3D printing modular system for the dental industry


Paris, March 12, 2019, at 7:00 am,

3D printing for the dental industry enters a new phase of industrialization

While several of its customers already own a number of MOVINGLight® ProMaker L series (L7000, L5000, LD10 and LD20) 3D printers, offering very high levels of productivity, certain applications require even faster production speeds.

In the orthodontics market, the boom in clear aligners means that certain customers produce several thousand aligners per day. In order to meet the new challenges posed by this personalized mass production, Prodways has combined the productivity of its dedicated dental machines with robotics and automation techniques in which its parent company, Groupe Gorgé, is an expert.

Thanks to its unique expertise, Prodways partnered with a leading clear aligner workflow software player in order to propose an integrated robotic solution for the production of clear aligners. This solution will be unveiled for the first time at the IDS dental trade fair which takes place in Cologne, Germany, from March 12-16 2019.

This automated modular system covers all production phases: from design to 3D printing, and from thermoforming of the aligners to their packaging, and all 24/7.

The different versions of this automated 3D modular system can produce more than 2,000 clear aligners per day. The modules are equipped with 2 or more machines consuming more than 2 tons of materials per year.
