Innovative solutions for dental part machining

In Barcelona earlier this month, leading decision-makers in the medical technology industry discovered what the future may look like at special event ‘The Mini Factory: Medtech’, Tornos’ exclusive and immersive experience presented a wide range of manufacturing solutions from foremost medical technology market partners.

This exclusive three-day, invitation-only event brought together decision-makers from the medical technology sector and market leaders in the fast-growing medical manufacturing segment. In a unique venue – the Tuset Manhattan, a renovated industrial building located on Carrer Aragó in the heart of Barcelona – guests discovered the complete manufacturing process around a specific dental part.

Thanks to Tornos and 13 reference partners representing the entire medical technology manufacturing process, guests enjoyed full immersion in part creation, from the initial scan of the patient’s tooth and conversion into a 3D model, through to the complete machining process – including peripherals, tools, materials and consumables -quality control and surface treatment.

A Tornos Swiss GT 26 with B axis and Swiss DT 26/6 HP took centre stage at this first event. The company says that its latest-generation Swiss DT and Swiss GT are new allies of manufacturers seeking to exceed their own expectations, be extremely competitive and have a solution that evolves in line with their own business strategies.

Guided tours provided an up-close look at the various stages of the manufacturing process, with participating partners providing detailed presentations of their respective solutions for medical technology manufacturing. The Mini Factory: Medtech was possible, in part, through Tornos’ close relationships with leading suppliers of peripheral solutions. Tornos plans to extend this unique concept to other industries and markets in the coming months.
