Paris, September 14th, 2017,
Prodways Group, a subsidiary of Groupe Gorgé announces that Dental Crafters, one of the major dental services laboratories in the USA, now offers high-precision model printing services to other dental labs thanks to ProMaker L5000 D 3D printer.
Founded in 1989 by a Dental Technician, Dental Crafters is one of the major full service dental laboratories in the USA offering a complete range of restorative products including crowns, fixed and removable denture products as well as other unique products in the field of implant dentistry. It also offers surgical planning and surgical drill guides which helps its customers deliver safe and predictable dental implants.
Dental Crafters is renowned and committed to providing the highest quality dental products and services on the USA market today, by consistently meeting or exceeding dental market expectations for product quality and performance. They continuously look to improve their processes and systems with the latest innovations.
In the digital age, Dental Crafters has modernized production to meet the growing challenges of innovation and high quality dental services with the best industrial 3D printers. Aim was not only to migrate from traditional dental stone models to 3D printed models but also to develop a new specific offering that requires high-precision models.
Consequently, Dental Crafters named an external dental lab to test different type of 3D printers & technologies to find the best solution meeting their key criteria for high accuracy.
As a result, Dental Crafters chose Prodways Group’s high-precision 3D printer, ProMaker L5000 D, to offer high-quality model printing services to other dental labs.
Indeed, ProMaker L5000 D high accuracy 3D printer is specifically designed for dental laboratories requiring the ability to produce unique, detailed dental models with incredible speed, accuracy and reliability. Prodways Group’s exclusive MOVINGLight® technology is based on the polymerization of photosensitive resins using moving DLP® (Digital Light Processing) UV rays, delivering a unique combination of high resolution and fast throughput. Additionally, ProMaker L5000 D features a granite build platform which allows for increased stability and improved productivity for the fast production of dental models.
Using ProMaker L5000 D, Dental Crafters is now capable of producing around thirty dental quadrants in one print with layer heights as low as 50 micrometers, which exceeds the dental industry standards and ensures high-quality models which results in quality crowns too.
“While searching for the ideal printer for our 3D model printing needs, we wanted to stay true to our high-quality standards. As a result, Dental Crafters chose the ProMaker L5000 D by Prodways Group for two simple reasons, high volume and precise accuracy sustained over time.
With our internal testing we found that the Prodways machine consistently produced an accurate product regardless of volume, surpassing other machines on the market. With the Prodways ProMaker L5000 D we can consistently print 60 quadrant models per day, maintaining accuracy print after print.
In this growing digital world, Dental Crafters takes pride in staying on the cutting edge of technology while maintaining our commitment to excellence. The decision to purchase the ProMaker L5000 D for our 3D model printing services, allows us to continue this strong tradition” said Brad Slominski, co-owner of Dental Crafters.
Dental Crafters’ choice confirms Prodways Group’s positioning as a significant player in the highly specialized dental segment and strengthen its expertise that had already been attributed to several partnerships with the biggest names in the dental industry as well as renowned dentists and leading international suppliers.
