Axsys Dental Solutions announced the dental industry’s first-ever automated appliance trimming solution for a variety of dental appliances. In as little as 30 seconds, dentists and dental labs can now easily create and trim clear appliances with the highest quality trim edges. 

“TrimExpertTM is a modular solution designed to operate within existing workflows and meet any production requirements. It’s the first of its kind to offer a modular and scalable solution for the trimming of all dental appliances,” said Axsys CEO and President Steve Braykovich. 

Designed to work within any budget, dentists and dental labs can choose their desired level of automation and expand their capabilities as their businesses grow and production requirements or processes change. There are no additional on-going "aligner fees" or "licensing fees" to decrease profitability. 

TrimExpert is designed to work within existing production workflows. Modular software components provide trim line definition, machine code calculation, verification, part identification and more. Its modularity minimizes costs as well as production disruptment.

"Our extensive experience in automating these types of processes in the automotive and aircraft industries allowed us to develop this game-changing trimming solution with no significant design, technological, fabrication, installation, or operational challenges," explained Braykovich. Axsys has been a manufacturing solution provider for over 25 years and has served a variety of industries from aerospace to dental. They have manufactured everything from aircraft and automotive parts to crowns, bridges, bars and dentures. 

Axsys also offers a fully-automated solution with a simple robot which can service multiple machines, thereby eliminating manual case identification, loading and unloading, and operation initiation. 

To further facilitate the process, Axsys fabricated a fixture for the thermoformer and their milling machine that assures easy loading as well as positional accuracy.

The final deliverable can be customized to fit a lab or doctor's needs as well as their IT infrastructure and desired level of automation at the various stages of the design and fabrication processes. The system is scalable and automation "components" can be added incrementally as needs arise. 

The TrimExpert will be showcased at both the CDS Midwinter and the LMT Lab Day events in Chicago this week, February 20-22. For more information visit trimexpert.com
