Challenges in the 3D Printing Workflow: Nexus Dental’s Struggle with IPA
3D printing technology plays a crucial role in Nexus Dental Lab’s workflow, enabling them to produce higher quality dental restorations and models more efficiently than ever before. However, they were facing several challenges with their resin removal process using isopropyl alcohol (IPA), which was not only time-consuming and inconsistent but also environmentally unsustainable and hazardous for its staff. Printing 60-80 models per day, lab technicians were spending an average of 5-10 minutes per part processing with IPA, which was significantly impeding their production process. This labor-intensive process resulted in a bottleneck that prevented the team from focusing on higher-value tasks. The company was looking for an alternative solution that would eliminate these issues.
Making the Leap to Automation
After looking for a more sustainable and automated option, Nexus Dental decided to implement the PostProcess DEMI 430 resin removal solution. The implementation process was straightforward, and the very next day, the team stopped using IPA and started using the comprehensive PostProcess hardware, software, and chemistry, which is not only more sustainable but also faster and more consistent. The team’s feedback was instant and overwhelmingly positive, with team members wishing they had it sooner. With the PostProcess solution, Nexus Dental has been able to eliminate the bottleneck in its production process and redirect its highly skilled team to higher-value tasks, such as working on ceramics and CAD. They were able to eliminate one-third of their manual labor and remove the monotonous, consistent and faster processing times, nearly eliminating the hands-on time per part, allowing the team to focus on more inspiring work.
Furthermore, the PostProcess detergent has eliminated the guilt associated with the resin removal process, as it is better for the environment and safer for the staff. Nexus Dental is now confident to promote more direct-to-surgeon services since the bottleneck has been eliminated.
Overall, the PostProcess DEMI 430 resin removal solution has been a game-changer for Nexus Dental, providing a more sustainable, faster, and consistent solution that has eliminated the bottleneck in their production process.
The company is now looking to automate other processes and leverage their skilled team’s time for higher-value tasks. The company feels that this is the way forward, especially with tighter regulations with medical devices in the future, and is glad to have made the leap to automation.
