The Dentaurum Group, which produces non-precious metal alloys, and Concept Laser, a company belonging to the Hofmann Innovation Group and working in the field of generative metal laser fusing technology, are cooperating in the area of laser fusing of dental alloys.
As part of this cooperation, both companies agreed to provide and market high-quality CoCr alloys, which have been approved for use with the LaserCusing method. The patented and clinically tried-and-tested non-precious metal alloy Remanium Star, which has previously been used as an alloy in the form of cast cylinders and as a blank milling workpiece, is now also available as Remanium Star CL as a laser-fusable alloy powder through Concept Laser.
The LaserCusing method can be used with Remanium Star CL powder to manufacture both small caps and bridgework in an economical fashion. The products which are fabricated in this way meet the requirements of the German Medical Devices Act.
'It goes without saying for us that we want to employ the know-how that we have built up over many decades in the field of dental materials so that we can also develop optimally adapted materials for new technologies such as LaserCusing. Thanks to this alliance, we will be able to ensure that customers are able to derive the maximum benefit from the fields of expertise of both partners,' said Mark Pace, managing director of the Dentaurum Group.
'As a result of the cooperation with Dentaurum, we hope to establish more of a presence in the dental market. But what counts here above all else is the trust that customers have in a high-quality medical product which we are now able to offer with Remanium Star CL from Dentaurum,' said Frank Herzog, managing director of Concept Laser.
