Eplus3D, Hanzhou, China, has highlighted the use of its EP-M150 Additive Manufacturing machine in the dental industry via a case study provided by 3Dental, a dental production in Saint-Lô, France, under the guidance of BioSummer 3D.

In 2021, 3Dental began seeking further customisation abilities than what are standard in the market. After comparing multiple options and taking into account the cost, the company purchased a dual laser EP-M150 Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) AM machine to produce dental parts and frameworks.

One feature noted by Eplus3D is the EP-M150’s ability to produce dental frameworks at a low cost per part, without compromising on quality. This significantly reduces the financial burden on dental practices, enabling them to provide high-quality restorations to their patients at competitive prices.

Fabien Lemarinel, Director General at 3Dental, stated, “Since the creation of 3Dental, we have been committed to revolutionising the world of dental prosthetics using the most advanced technology, while maintaining an unparalleled standard of excellence. It is this requirement that led us to Eplus3D and their innovative EP-M150 machine.”

The EP-M150 system can manufacture a full plate of teeth (up to 220 crowns per build) in just 5.5 hours, and a full plate of partials (up to twenty-five pieces per build) in around eight hours. The machine’s performance at 3Dental has made the complete solution financially viable for full production of dental frameworks. As a result, 3Dental has continued to invest in the technology at a rate of one machine per quarter since receiving their first Eplus3D machine and reportedly has plans to increase capacity with four more machines in the future.

“Our dedication to precision, superior quality and efficiency has always been our driving force. Eplus3D’s EP-M150 has seamlessly integrated into our work ethic, reinforcing our ability to deliver exceptional dentures to our customers,” Lemarinel added. “Looking to the future, we are excited about the endless possibilities that our collaboration with Eplus3D will continue to bring. Our shared commitment to excellence ensures that the best is yet to come.”
