June 16, 2014 -- WorkNC Dental software is helping a specialist implant company towards their goal of giving people their smiles back.
Osteophoenix SL is a newly established company in Spain whose mission is to create titanium dental implants for patients who have lost too much bone structure for traditional fixed implants. And the latest CAD/CAM technology from WorkNC is all set to play a vital role in the development of the manufacturing process.
Chief Executive Officer Charbell de Soto says: “WorkNC Dental and WorkNC 3+2 V22 is essential for us, giving us the quality, speed and simplicity to machine dental implants and bridges.” The software drives their Gentiger GT-45-5AX router, milling titanium in what they say is record time.
While they currently produce maxillofacial prothesis, Charbell de Soto says: “It’s our firm intention in the not too distant future to make bone implants tailored to the specific needs of individual patients. And WorkNC is a vital factor in achieving that.”
Osteophoenix asked WorkNC’s Sales Manager for Spain, Xavier Mira, to provide a CNC machine and software to meet their stated objectives of designing and building a solution for patients who have lost part of their bone structure. “We proposed a complete solution to Osteophoenix incorporating the Gentiger machine driven by WorkNC Dental software, also involving WorkNC reseller Tecnocad for pre-sales services and to carry out some milling tests.”
The final decision to opt for WorkNC Dental and WorkNC 3+2 V22 was made by Osteophoenix Group General Manager Mauricio Lizarazo. Tecnocad then undertook the installation work and training, and now provide continued technical support and consultancy.
Osteophoenix Production Manager Javier Infante says WorkNC visualises each machining process, giving them added confidence of obtaining maximum efficiency. He also notes that “the post processing in ISO code is organised by avoiding unnecessary data, and facilitating program management. And visual interface security means we can define toolpaths to avoid production failure.”
He says that overall, the combination of WorkNC Dental’s methodical and intuitive user-friendly graphic interface, which has been specially designed for prosthetists and dental technicians who are not experts in machining technologies, with WorkNC 3+2 V22 CAM software saves time, improves the quality of the final product, and optimises their production process.
