Design and Manufacture of Customised Denture Frameworks Using Magics®/Autofab® and SLM
Layer additive manufacturing technologies are progressing from rapid prototyping and rapid tooling. The development of finished parts made of metal powders without post processing is especially suitable for creation of precision part/object from small to mass customized fabrication; hence is the key application of these technologies. Laser based layer manufacturing techniques are mostly preferred in medical industry, particularly in the manufacture of denture frameworks; since these need to good mechanical properties and density. The introduction of new fibre and disc equipped system has significantly improved the accuracy of the processed components. The main objective of this work is to illustrate how this technology can be effectively used in the manufacturing of denture frameworks.
