Technology and knowledge transfer is associated with a number of challenges. Transferinitiative RLP, a project of Rhineland-Palatinate, aims at bringing together researchers and developers from industry and academia to enhance the innovation system in the region. Focussing on three promising topics we support the professional networks and cooperation of industry and research. Our focus areas are
- Personalized Medicine
- Lightweight and new materials
- Industry 4.0
By providing the platform for entrepreneurs and scientists to meet, we foster novel connections, give access to new ideas and support the transfer of emerging technologies into the regional economy.
In order to come up to the growing demand for digitally produced models and drilling templates DreveDentamid GmbH have profoundly engaged themselves in this topic.
With an enormous effort of the in-house department of Research and Development Dreve managed to realize all the measures necessary to allow the smooth and trouble-free process of rapid manufacturing per model. We have been employing the generative manufacturing units D30 and D35 in our Unna factory for more than a year now. The Scan-LED technique used in these machines is a further development of stereolithography which allows for manufacturing with highest precision and attention to detail.
With the introduction of the new ordering portal Print@Dreve, DreveDentamid GmbH now offers a very convenient and easy to handle ordering system. Invoicing of the services will be done by the authorized distributor that is chosen by the dental lab. And still the highly qualified technical support is provided by the specialists at DreveDentamid GmbH.

In combination with the included software package, the turnkey system is embedded best along the 3D printing workflow and allows highest resolution with a previously unavailable freedom of design.
Subsequent independent processes enable the transfer and/or replication of polymeric 3D printed templates into a large choice of materials. The additive manufacturing of 2D, 2.5D and 3D objects paves the way for a wide field of novel applications, e.g. in photonics, micro-optics, micro-fluidics, life sciences and tissue engineering.
Natural Dental Implants AG | REPLICATE System
About the REPLICATE System
The REPLICATE system is a highly innovative technology for immediate single-tooth replacement. Each REPLICATE tooth is produced individually for each patient based on a 3D x-ray (DVT / CBCT) and is an exact replica of the non-salvageable tooth to be replaced.
The customized replica of the tooth is inserted into the alveolar socket immediately after extraction and covered with a protection crown/bridge, all at the same appointment.
About Natural Dental Implants AG
Natural Dental Implants AG, based in Berlin, was founded in 2006 to develop intellectual property rights for the REPLICATE system for single-tooth restorations. The company commenced business operations in 2009. The REPLICATE system for single-tooth restorations has been approved in the European Union and is distributed commercially. A U.S. subsidiary, REPLICATE Dental Technology Inc. based in Dallas, Texas, was established to market the REPLICATE system in the U.S. after FDA approval.
