GPAINNOVA, a provider of dry-electropolishing solutions for metals, medical devices and aquatic drones, headquartered in Barcelona, Spain, has entered into a distribution agreement with CADdent GmbH, Augsburg, Germany, who specialises in solutions for the dental industry.

Under the company’s CADtools brand, CADdent will distribute GPAINNOVA’s machinery and supplies to dental laboratories in the German market, thus enabling GPAINNOVA to expand its presence in the metal Additive Manufacturing industry sector in Germany.

CADtools, a subsidiary created in 2018, will be CADdent’s line to sell machinery, equipment and a wide range of consumables for European dental labs. CADtools will also offer technical support to assure optimal maintenance of the distributed machines, explains the company.

Although the two companies have collaborated since 2017, this agreement is said to be a major step in the partnership. CADdent has been using three machines designed and created by GPAINNOVA, which include the DLyte10D, medium-size electropolishing machinery, easily integrated into medium-sized dental laboratories, and the DLyte100D for dental laboratories with large production.

Both of the patented machines are dedicated to grinding and polishing cobalt-chrome and titanium alloys for the dental industry. They are suitable for all types of dental bone supports, spacers, crowns, bars, anatomical structures, implants and orthodontic supports.

The DLyte10D and DLyte100D machines are based on GPAINNOVA’s DLyte technology, a solution that simplifies and standardises the post-production process of additively manufactured metal parts, improving the finishing results obtained with traditional polishing systems.
