EOS: Laser Sintering

27 03 2009

According to a survey conducted by the Millennium Research Group, thanks to a variety of factors, the European market for dental crowns and bridges will continue to grow steadily in the next few years.

EOS believes that technological advancements in the field of dental care are contributing to this. The company’s laser-sintering method can help provide dental restorations which are “simultaneously more affordable, more readily available and of high quality.” Reportedly, one fully-automated laser-sintering machine can produce up to 450 parts for dental crowns and bridges within 24 hours, and all of the finished parts will be of the same consistently high quality. The time-savings and the financial advantage that the dental laboratories gain are huge.

EOS’s EOSINT M 270 laser-sintering system can manufacture dental implants by “direct metal laser-sintering” (DMLS) using a focused solid-state laser. The machine uses CAD data to produce, from metal powder and in only a few hours, complex geometries that exhibit oprimal mechanical properties, surface quality and detail resolution. The CE-certified EOS CobaltChrome SP2 alloy was developed by EOS especially for the dental industry for use in the EOSINT M 270.

Here at IDS, EOS has been demonstrating its entire process chain, from the initial scanner to the creation of the 3D CAD data and the laser-sintering machine, and ending with the finished veneered product. For more information, visit www.eos.info.
