The companies say that both solutions will bring improved efficiency and safety and increased throughputs to ODL’s additive manufacturing operation.
ODL has reportedly developed a proprietary appliance that streamlines the orthodontic appliance fitting method. ODL implements carbon continuous liquid interface production (CLIP) 3D printers to develop custom orthodontic solutions that are fit to 99.9% accuracy using ODL’s 3D intraoral scans. According to the company, 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 an advanced vibratory technology to surface finish printed appliances to their desired roughness average. The company says that both solutions will bring improved efficiency and safety and increased throughputs to ODL’s additive manufacturing operation.
Michael Wright, president, ODL, said, “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.”
