Software provider Oqton, San Francisco, California, USA, and Eplus3D, Hangzhou, China, have entered into a strategic partnership in an effort to enable dental laboratories to increase productivity and traceability by making Oqton’s AI-powered Manufacturing OS platform available to users of Eplus3D’s metal Additive Manufacturing machines.
“We’re excited to officially recognise Eplus3D as a trusted partner amongst a host of forward-thinking industry leaders,” stated Kris Wouters, General Manager – Healthcare, Oqton. “We are impressed with their commercial success based on the metal 3D printing technology they’ve developed, and its ability to help dental labs produce patient-specific devices such as crowns, bridges, and RPD frames. As we move forward, we will continue to deepen our technical collaboration, further helping customers achieve desired results with improved productivity while maintaining regulatory compliance.”
Mary Li, Head of the Overseas Division, Eplus3D, added, “Our collaboration with Oqton first began in 2018, as we set out to fully integrate their innovative Manufacturing OS into our Eplus3D printers. Since that time, we’ve become increasingly acquainted with their expertise and technology, and are impressed by the easy-to-use, smart algorithms they’ve created. We’re looking forward to our continued collaboration to simplify production workflows for our customers – helping them unlock the full potential of AM to accelerate industrialisation.”
Additive Manufacturing solutions provider MT 3D, Kuurne, Belgium, has been using Oqton’s software with its Additive Manufacturing machines from Eplus3D and reported positive results, noting an improved workflow and nearly automated data preparation of dental parts.
