Renishaw additive manufacturing in Australian first at Proslab's Melbourne facility

October 2017

eLABORATE magazine interviewed Damian Synefias from Proslab Dental where he comments on their new additive manufacturing (AM) technology for removable partial dentures (RPDs): “With the help of Renishaw and the state-of-the-art AM 400 laser printer, we are now in a position to produce the most accurate ‘casting' for the patient that there is. It allows us to be more confident in our work with none of the dimensional change in the framework that we had become accustomed to from traditional techniques.”

In the article Mr Synefias talks about "an Australian first, a unique 3D laser printer built in the UK by global specialists Renishaw is now up and running at Proslab's high-end Melbourne facility and is ready to provide superior quality and output. Renishaw's additive manufacturing systems use metal powder bed fusion technology to build complex components direct from digital CAD files".
