OR LASER demonstrates its metal Additive Manufacturing in dental sector

The CREATOR direct metal Additive Manufacturing machine from OR LASER


OR LASER, a Coherent, Inc. company, is showcasing its range of industrial laser based Additive Manufacturing equipment at this year’s Formnext exhibition, Frankfurt, Germany November 13-16. The company’s booth will be dedicated to highlighting how its metal AM platforms can be applied within a complete production workflow, with a specific focus on how this is already happening within the dental sector.

On the booth will be a range of manufacturing systems, notably the CREATOR direct metal Additive Manufacturing machine, the CREATOR RA and the CREATOR hybrid. These will sit alongside the flexible EVO Mobile and Cube systems to allow visitors to fully understand their capabilities and how they can fit into their own production environments.

The company’s continued focus on advancing the capabilities of the CREATOR series machines has is said to have resulted in a refined metal powder bed Additive Manufacturing system, which last year incorporated hybrid subtractive capabilities. The latest development is the CREATOR RA, which increases functionality of the CREATOR platform with the capability to process reactive materials such as titanium and aluminium. The RA system is reported to offer a cost/performance ratio that makes producing AM parts in reactive materials more accessible to industry.

To illustrate the real world potential of the CREATOR platforms, the company will feature a working application of the AM hardware within a dental production workflow. This dental
application will showcase the entire digital process through the use of connected data and equipment, including a 3D scanner, the APP SUITE of CAM processing software, the CREATOR itself and ancillary equipment.

The dental market is one sector where the CREATOR has already penetrated with a great deal of success. The unique selling points of the CREATOR platform are an essential driver for this, notably its small footprint, with the intentional ability to fit easily through a standard doorway. The performance of the machine in terms of its reliability and the quality of the parts that are produced in dental-specific materials are said to be further factors resulting in the company’s success in this market.

A range of dental parts directly produced on the CREATOR platforms will be showcased at the COHERENT|OR LASER booth, alongside parts that have been developed and produced for medical, engineering and jewellery applications of Additive Manufacturing directly with metal.
