Eplus3D, Hangzhou, China, has installed an EP-M150 Additive Manufacturing machine at a dental laboratory in North Macedonia, a sale which follows the recent purchase of two EP-M260 by other European manufacturers.

The company explains that as a result of the increasing accessibility of AM, the dental industry is undergoing a rapid transition from traditional industry to digital manufacturing, leveraging AM’s high levels of customisation as well as benefits regarding precision, quality and cost. The EP-M150 machine will be used by the dental lab to manufacture bridges, crowns, partial frameworks, and more.

The EP-M150 is said to offer an improved powder feeding and sieving system which enables a high material utilisation rate – reportedly producing more than 550 crowns from only 1 kg of powder. It takes approximate five and a half hours to additively manufacture approximately 220 crowns, and around six and a half hours to produce a full plate of partials.
