Few days before the Lab Day East tradeshow in Atlantic City, USA, Dreve renewed trust in Prodways with the installation of two new ProMaker L5000 D at its USA facilities in Eden Prairie and University of Kentucky, achieving a total of thirteen MOVINGLight® 3D printers purchased since the beginning of their collaboration, to produce Dreve's dental models renowned for their highest quality in the market.

Dreve, one of the major dental production center, manufactures models and implant guides for dentures and orthodontic pieces. While the majority of dental models are still produced manually from plaster casting, dentists are increasingly using intra-oral scanners, thereby bringing the workflow into the digital realm, which could result in a sharp increase in the demand for 3D printed dental models over the coming years. To meet this increasing demand, Dreve has chosen Prodways' MOVINGLight® printers in 2013 to firstly equip its dental production facility in Germany.

Dr. Volker DREVE, Chief Executive Officer of DREVE, stated: “We decided to launch our own production for high-quality dental models using Prodways MOVINGLight® 3D printers four years ago. We have chosen these printers as they are more precise & more accurate than other market ranges and highly reliable. Our decision to go on with Prodways printers is driven by Prodways' constant quality for dental production.”

Over time, Dreve constantly renewed trust in Prodways while regularly purchasing MOVINGLight® 3D-printers to increase its dental production capacity and partnering to develop new high-quality dental materials. The recent purchase of two new L5000 D printers to equip their USA facilities in Eden Prairie and University of Kentucky, demonstrates Dreve's confidence in Prodways technology as a highly reliable and time-tested technology for the production of dental models 24/24 and 7/7.

It also brings Dreve to a total of thirteen MOVINGLight® 3D printers bought in only four years delivering:

  • Premium quality of dental models for prosthetic/orthodontics work – including implant models with ultra-high accuracy and superior surface quality.
  • Maximum productivity and unparalleled speed, ensuring perfect quality on large production platforms and meeting the growing demand from dental labs.

Dreve's accuracy tests on new ProMaker L5000 D at its USA facilities showed a result of more than 95% data points within 32µ on dental model production. As a result, Dreve chose to train future dental specialists on MOVINGLight® based 3D printers at its facility within University of Kentucky to develop new dental applications. 

Dreve's renowned dental model quality and high requirement for accuracy as well as their fame as a leading dental production center confirm Prodways' expertise and excellence in the dental segment. Their continued partnership is opening new routes for the highly specialized dental production.
