MERRIMACK, NH, March 7, 2003 - Traditionally, braces on the inside of the arch are based on standard brackets and an arch wire adapted to the customer’s needs. T.O.P. Service für Lingualtechnik, a leading company in lingual orthodontics, has developed a fundamentally different production method using CAD/CAM technology. The customized brackets are much smaller and lead to magnificent results.

cost justification29
Cost justification

50 patterns per month x $3 Cost of Material

= $150 Cost of Material per month

$60,000 ÷ 60 Months = $1000 per month

= $20 Machine Cost per Pattern

Total costs T66, 50 models per month:

$ 23 per pattern or $ 1,150 per month

three generations of precision
Three generations of precision

ModelMaker 6 Pro (rear) Introduced in 1994; attained acceptance for most accurate and precise patterns for investment casting “Lost Wax” process. 170 Units Shipped.

ModelMaker II (center) Introduced in 1998; provided improved performance, reliability and larger build envelope for all applications. 350 Units Shipped.

PatternMasterTM(front) Introduced 2000; targeted for the industrial market; supports faster build times for larger vector patterns, normally used in investment cast patterns and rapid tooling.
