Additional Manufacturing Capabilities
Silicone and urethane casting are versatile and efficient techniques used in the medical and dental industry. It allows for the production of realistic and accurate medical models of organs, implants, prosthetics, and dental models. Silicone casting is commonly used to make prosthetic parts, such as facial prosthetics, while urethane casting is mainly used in dental models, such as crowns and bridges. These techniques have allowed for patient care and outcomes advancements as medical practitioners can use the models to test new medical devices and procedures before implementing them on patients. Additionally, silicone and urethane casting materials are biocompatible and non-toxic, making them safe for medical and dental applications. Silicone and urethane casting techniques are crucial in medical and dental advancements.
Wax casting is a traditional technique that has evolved to become one of the most reliable methods in dentistry and medicine. It is widely used to produce prostheses, dental restorations, orthodontic devices, and surgical implants. In medicine, wax casting is applied to create custom prosthetics, such as artificial limbs, designed and manufactured to fit individual patients’ needs. Dentistry is used to create dental restorations, such as crowns and bridges, which match the natural teeth’ color, shape, and size. Wax casting is also utilized in orthodontics to fabricate customized dental braces, retainers, and other orthodontic devices. The exact technique produces accurate and detailed models of the required prosthesis, ensuring a perfect fit and optimal patient comfort.
Injection molding is a widely used manufacturing process in the medical and dental industries. It is ideal for these applications because it creates high volumes of parts with consistent quality and precision. Biocompatible, sterile, chemical, heat, and abrasion-resistant materials such as polypropylene, polycarbonate, and nylon are commonly used. Specialized facilities with cleanrooms often produce medical and dental injection molded parts to ensure consistent quality and prevent contamination.
