Oqton Strengthens Manufacturing OS Platform for Dental Industry with New Partners
GHENT, Belgium, February 22, 2023 – Oqton a software provider helping manufacturers increase innovation and efficiency by intelligently automating production, announced three new partnerships intended to bolster its Manufacturing OS platform for dental customers. 2oneLab, Labtrac, and Dental Axess have joined Oqton’s growing partner network to offer greater flexibility for customers to design a solution specifically for their needs. Oqton collaborated with these partners to build validated integrations with Manufacturing OS, thus providing customers confidence in a turn-key solution that will deliver immediate results. Additionally, customers of 2oneLab, Labtrac, and Dental Axess can benefit from the automation and productivity gains, and full traceability available through Oqton’s Manufacturing OS platform.
Manufacturing OS is Oqton’s all-in-one easy-to-use platform that connects and automates a customer’s entire production workflow for 3D printing, CNC milling, and post-processing for a variety of applications such as crowns, bridges, aligners, models, and removable partial dentures (RPDs). As a result, dental labs and production centers can automate repetitive tasks in file management, data preparation, traceability, and production management, to achieve unprecedented productivity and reduce costs. Oqton’s newest partners bring unique domain expertise to complement the platform:
2oneLab is the manufacturer of the 2Create metal 3D printers. Through this partnership, 2oneLab’s customers will benefit from Oqton’s automated data preparation workflows to prepare print jobs — allowing them to improve efficiency and enable more rapid adoption for those who are new to 3D printing. Proto3000 is the exclusive North American distributor for 2oneLab.
Labtrac offers a powerful dental lab management software platform that includes order management, communication and collaboration tools, technician task overviews, CRM, and invoicing. The partnership with Oqton facilitates tightly integrated, digital workflows that facilitate two-way communication and remove the need for manual intervention thus mitigating the risk of human error and saving time.
Dental Axess is a full solution provider for digital dentistry, offering a complete clear aligner workflow, including its Xflow Cloud-based workflow management platform, scanners, 3D printers, thermoforming machines, and LAC aligner cutter. Dental Axess’ partnership and integration of Xflow with Oqton will facilitate an automated end-to-end workflow for clear aligner manufacturing. This will enable the connection of a variety of manufacturing processes to leverage productivity gains from intra-oral scanning, through data preparation and production.
“Oqton is helping dental labs overcome challenges with a solution that is unmatched in the industry,” said Kris Wouters, general manager, healthcare, Oqton. “Our machine-agnostic, cloud-based platform is an automated manufacturing operating system, powered by AI, that easily integrates into any dental production workflow to increase dental labs’ efficiency and peace of mind. With the addition of 2oneLab, Labtrac, and Dental Axess, we are adding another layer of capabilities that is more comprehensive than other available solutions — going well beyond data preparation to automate and optimize the entire production workflow while ensuring full traceability. This creates a simplified end-to-end workflow that allows dental customers to scale their businesses and maintain competitive advantage.”
