Lithoz GmbH, Vienna, Austria, has installed a CeraFab System S65 Medical Additive Manufacturing machine at dental AM solutions provider CADdent, headquartered in Augsburg, Germany. This is said to mark the first ceramic Additive Manufacturing machine purchased by the company.
With the installation of this machine, spurred on by recent expansion of all-ceramic solutions in the dental sector, CADdent is broadening its range of manufacturing options as an industry-wide service provider. Appropriate premises have already been created with space for ten Additive Manufacturing machines, which are to be purchased gradually along CADdent’s planned growth path.
“In the future, CADdent will increasingly use the manufacturing and engineering know-how we have gained in the areas such as 3D printing outside of dentistry to open up new market segments,” stated Manfred Goth, Managing Director, CADdent. “Before choosing Lithoz as our partner in ceramic 3D printing, we thoroughly researched the market and had various test parts produced. The results of these tests clearly showed us that only Lithoz could be considered as our partner in ceramic 3D printing.”
Dr Daniel Bomze, Head of Business Unit Medical at Lithoz, added “[We are] very pleased to have gained such a professional and ambitious partner with the highest standards expected in the dental sector.”
