In the orthodontics market, the boom in clear aligners means that certain customers produce several thousand aligners per day. 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 of its parent company, Groupe Gorgé.
Prodways partnered with a leading clear aligner workflow software player to propose an integrated robotic solution for the production of clear aligners. This solution will be unveiled 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.
