CORiTEC® AM100 

Forward-looking hybrid technology for professional dental labs and milling centres

The CORiTEC AM100 metal 3D printer is a fast and affordable entry into additive dental production. It is optimally matched for Cobalt-Chrome dental alloy powder to produce dental prostheses using the laser melting process. In addition, CORiTEC AM100 can 3D print up to 250 units per processing cycle in less than 3 minutes. Last but not least, this hybrid laser powder bed fusion printer is engineered to have an innovative cartridge system which allows for the material to be reused and recycled thanks to the CORiTEC AMpure unpacking station.

High-quality and complex dental constructions through
3D printing & re-milling
.

imes-icore’s innovative hybrid technology combines laser powder bed fusion (LPBF) with dental milling. In combination with the CORiTEC 350i and 650i series, you can raise the bar of new standards for high-quality dental prostheses through the re-milling of LPBF units in hybrid technology.

System Highlights & Performance

Laser Powder Bed Fusion System

CORiTEC AM100 works according to the Laser-Powder-Bed-Fusion (LPBF) process. In this process, a 200-watt fiber laser with a focus diameter of 45 µm melts the powder material, layer by layer. This enables the production of the most complex geometries on an area of 150 x 150 x 150 mm, at a speed of up to 3000 mm/s.

  • Laser Powder Bed Fusion process

    • It starts with the powder being dispensed from the supply cartridge. The powder is collected into the overflow cartridge then the full build module is transported to the AMPure station by trolley for the unpacking process.
  • Unpacking Process

    • The overflow powder is collected in the overflow cartridges. The disposal of the remaining overflow powder is done via ATEX vacuum cleaner. The empty build module is transported to the AM100 printer by trolley for the next print job.
  • Cartridge Change

    • The full overflow cartridge from the AM100 printer gets into the sieving unit.
  • Sieving Process

    • The powder is sieved and collected in an empty supply cartridge. The oversize powder is separated into oversize containers.
  • Cartridge Re-change

    • The recycled powder is ready for use in the AM100 3D printer and the empty overflow cartridge gets back into the AMPure. The final step is the disposal of the oversize powder so that you can reinsert the empty container.

Smart Cartridge System

CORiTEC® AMpure is the unpacking station that includes an ultrasonic sieve station for powder preparation. It makes the perfect synergy with the LPBF printing process and the subsequent cleaning of the components without powder contact. The collection of the excess powder in the supply cartridge is fully-automated.

Materials

The i-PROMELT powder is a certified and quality-checked powder for the construction of dental applications. It ensures optimum surface quality with a particle size distribution of 10-30 µm. You can build up highly complex frameworks and form a perfect basis for various veneering ceramics.

Delivery & Usage

i-PROMELT is delivered to the customer, ready to start in the proven cartridge. In other words, the customer can feed the material directly into the process without burdensome filling of cylinders or construction chambers of the machines.
