Before and After SLA Printing : Comparison
Increased opportunity for contracts
24 hour reduction in workflow
Through the introduction of Formlabs printers into their printing process, Ashford Orthodontics has seen a great reduction in their printing costs and also, in their lead times. Through designing their workflow process to use the night as the only time for printing their parts, the lab is able to have printed parts back to their technicians only 24 hours after scanning. Now, the lab has a fleet of 12 Form 2 SLA printers, with 8 technicians working in the digital department. Additionally, through the use of bringing the process online with Formlabs software, the technicians are able to access model data online, anytime – again improving the workflow and efficiency of Ashford Orthodontics process.
