2012 was a big year for Techceram as we linked up with Renishaw to allow our customer base access to Laser PFM Chrome Cobalt frameworks.
3D printed LaserPFM™ is an ideal alternative to cast or machined semi-precious or non-precious crown and bridge frameworks.
Renishaw’s LaserPFM frameworks are 3D printed on their own additive manufacturing machine – the Renishaw AM250. In the case of LaserAbutments, the detailed implant interfaces are then machined on a high precision milling machine, preserving the accuracy and passivity of fit.
Renishaw LaserPFM frameworks are heat treated after 3D printing, removing internal stresses in the framework. The result is a stress-free, distortion-free bridge that can be fired many times for veneering purposes without the risk of losing accuracy.
