LaserRPDs - Removable Partial Dentures (or 'chromes' as they are more commonly known) are 3D printed in CoCr and subsequently heat treated. The Renishaw manufacturing process delivers a product that is potentially better fitting, thinner and with increased clasp flexibility compared to wax and cast frameworks.
Benefits of digital vs traditional wax and cast frameworks:
- Reduces manual labour
- Reduces human error
- Shortens processes
- Eliminates inconsistent casting processes
- Allows recall, change design and remanufacture without the need to restart the entire process
LaserRPDs help to close the digital loop for today's CAD/CAM dental labs. By using Renishaw's metal additive manufacturing systems (also referred to as 3D printers) an entirely digital workflow can be realised.
We can accept data from all major dental CAD systems that output .stl formats, including exocad, 3Shape and Dental Wings.

個案研究： Egan 採用數位化流程打造局部活動假牙 (RPD) [tw]
跨國工程企業 Renishaw 與 Egan Dental Laboratory 合作，針對局部活動假牙（RPD，也就是鉻合金假牙）打造完全數位化的設計與製造作業流程。採用數位技術可將鉻合金牙框架的製造時間縮短一半，並製作更堅硬、更精準及更薄的 RPD。[1.1MB]
Case study: Proslab ensures absolute accuracy with additive manufacturing
Leading Australian dental laboratory, Proslab, has fully digitalised the manufacture of its cobalt chrome removable partial dentures (RPDs). The laboratory partnered with global engineering company, Renishaw, to install what is thought to be the first metal additive manufacturing machine for dental applications in Australia.[2.2MB]
