Hybrid workflow: this is how you prepare your dental prostheses production for the future

There is a clear trend: dental prostheses are being increasingly produced in bulk in automated processes. It is therefore becoming more and more important for dental laboratories to rely on a consistently digitized workflow and an intelligent combination of 3D printing and milling technology in order to facilitate competitive production of as many components as possible to a high quality standard. Open IT interfaces and cooperation with partners form the basis of this hybrid process chain which has two primary advantages: shorter production times and decreased costs.

Integration in the digital process chain

Linking up with the milling machine is an important milestone on the journey to automated series production in dental technology. Experts have extended the IT interface of additive production systems for this purpose. The hybrid workflow makes it possible to print and subsequently post-process implant-supported dentures and telescopic parts with milling technology. Thanks to the highly precise results, implants and dental prostheses can be safely screwed in place.

This is what a hybrid workflow looks like in practice
