Teamziereis GmbH, a dental products and services specialist based in Engelsbrand, Germany, has announced its recent investment in an innovative dry electropolishing system from DLyte, Barcelona, Spain.

The DLyte 10D system allows the automatic polishing of components produced by Additive Manufacturing and hybrid manufacturing. It is said to result in an excellent polished finish on removable partials, dental crowns and products for orthodontic treatments. 

Ralph Ziereis, General Manager of Teamziereis, explained how he found the dry electropolishing system, “A customer told us about the innovative DLyte polishing method. Subsequently we informed ourselves about this technology and its possibilities at the AM Solutions booth during the 2019 formnext show.”

Teamziereis produces removable partials, dental crowns and components for orthodontic treatments, for example, filigreed wires, from cobalt chrome alloys with a Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) Additive Manufacturing system. After they were built, these components had to be manually polished. This costly operation usually took place in dental labs, explains Ziereis, “To relieve our customers from this time consuming and expensive operation and to be able to offer another service, we had been looking for a suitable mechanical polishing method and with the DryLyte technology we finally found it.”

“This system saves our customers not only a lot of money and time, but it also produces absolutely repeatable, high-quality polishing results,” added  Ziereis. By using the DLyte 10D, processing time can be reduced by up to 80% compared to manual work, depending on the application. Furthermore, several parts can be processed simultaneously.
