Clearstep is a UK based orthodontics lab using Objet 3D printers to rapidly produce customized teeth models for the production of clear aligners and clear positioners.
The move for digital orthodontic workflow with the use of Objet 3D printers has enabled the company to achieve consistent accuracy, consistency and speed for their customers. Using Objet 3D printers the company can now service 60 customers per day – where they were able to service just 25 using manual teeth modeling methods. Thanks to Objet and other process efficiencies, company turnover is forecasted for the year to increase by approx 40%, and costs are down by 20%. Lead-times have been reduced from 20 days to 5-days.
