3DZ to support Yndetech’ success
Yndetech, which was founded in 2016, acquired its first ProX DMP 100 shortly after it opened its doors in June of that year.
“My partner, Francesco Grande, and I realized that the quality of the pieces we were seeing from the DMP 100 was absolutely outstanding. We shared these results with the dental technicians in the area and the feedback was very positive,” said Emidio Cennerilli, president and CEO, Yndetech.
Yndetech is supported on-site by 3D Systems’ channel partner 3DZ Italy. 3DZ provides deep application expertise together with technical support for all of Yndetech’s ProX DMP 100 systems, while ensuring that materials are delivered on time to maintain high customer satisfaction.
Based on this initial input, Yndetech acquired a second ProX® DMP 100 soon afterwards. The quality and throughput of the 3D printers enabled Yndetech to provide its customers – predominantly dental technicians – with 24-hour turnaround service. In the following years the company added two more ProX DMP 100 systems to keep up with growing demand.
“Today we are printing a complete portfolio of dental devices with this laser melting technology using 3D Systems’ cobalt-chrome material, including bridges, abutments, and implant bars,” explained Emidio. “Cobalt-chrome has many advantages for dental applications such as biocompatibility, high wear resistance, easy to polish, chrome makes it more resistant to corrosion, and the very smooth surface finish makes it difficult for bacteria to attach to it.”
The 3D Systems Workflow Supports 24-Hour Turnaround
Yndetech has developed a 24-hour turnaround service based on the reliability of the ProX DMP 100. Dental technicians upload their dental CAD files to the Yndetech site or send them via email by 3:00pm. Using 3D Systems’ Phenix dental software, the Yndetech operator nests the various devices for printing on the ProX DMP 100’s plate. Within three hours, the files are ready to print overnight. The next morning, the parts undergo post-processing and are sent to customers by courier by 5:00pm. Five to six hundred dental elements are produced this way each day.
“Since I first became acquainted with Yndetech and their 3D Systems laser melting solution, I could no longer work without them. Compared to the other types of manufacturing processes and other milling centers, Yndetech has allowed me to produce dental elements with very high quality and precision – making my job easier and more accurate at the same time,” said Graziano Bruni, Laboratorio Odontotecnico Bruni & Pellanera. “The cobalt-chrome implants with the easily–removed, thin support structures are my favorite, and competitively priced for the truly excellent quality we receive.”
“In the production at Yndetech I could appreciate the quality and compactness of the alloy. I find the structures for my Toronto very compact and precise, with no distortion problems.”, said Sandro Iannotti of the Iannotti Laboratory. “The thing that struck me most was the slats of support for the work. Using ceka attacks on which I go to glue the titanium sphere I found the inside of the cockpit very clean and precise, but for stern attacks era-gold where the walls are very thin I found that degree of accuracy that with a traditional fusion I would not have achieved”.
ISO Certifications – Another Reason to Smile
As a result of the Yndetech’s superior quality and processes, the company is certified for ISO 9001 and also ISO 13485 to manufacture medical and dental parts according to strict customer and regulatory requirements.
