Dental 3D Printing and thermoforming techniques with Ackuretta & Erkodent

Dental 3D Printing and thermoforming techniques with Ackuretta & Erkodent


We're proud to announce an upcoming 1 day course organised by the Malaysian Dental Technologist Association that will be held on the 29th of June 2024. 


Participants will be introduced to Medes, Ackuretta, and Erkodent through a series of informative presentations and hands-on demonstrations covered by both Daniel Mervin (Ackuretta) and Adrian Schmitter (Medes, Erkodent). The event will begin with an overview of the 3D printing workflow, covering CAD design, nesting, processing, and post-processing, emphasising the importance of using validated devices. Ackuretta's system components, including the Sol/Dentiq 3D printers, Cleani, and Curie/Curie Plus, will be showcased for their benefits and performance. Demonstrations will include nesting print jobs and producing Bego 3D printed permanent restorations. Following a lunch break, Erkodent's dental thermoforming techniques will be presented, highlighting the differences between vacuum and pressure units and their applications in creating splints, aligners, and sports mouthguards. Attendees will participate in hands-on practice sessions for manufacturing and polishing dental splints and custom sports mouthguards. The day will conclude with a Q&A session and a group photo, marking a successful and engaging event.
