Turkish dental laboratory adds HBD metal AM machine
May 26, 2021
Dental laboratory Özel Epitel Sabit Diş Protez Lab, Istanbul, Turkey, has recently seen the installation of a HBD-150D Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) Additive Manufacturing machine from Chinese company HBD, customised for titanium partial dentures.
In the field of dentistry, laboratories have been moving towards partial digitalisation for some time as a way to increase efficiency. HBD’s industry-bespoke Additive Manufacturing machines are said to aid in this transition, producing hundreds of customised metal crowns within several hours without the need for waxing or casting, thus reducing both environmental impact and man hours.
HBD offers a range of AM machines, with build chambers ranging from 100 mm to 600 mm. The company also launched its new HBD-150D Dual Laser AM machine during Dental South China 2021, a global dentistry event.
