NOBIL-METAL® S.p.A. - DENTAL ALLOYS& SOLDERS

"A smile makes the difference."



Technologies

Since 1998, Nobil Metal manufacturing process is managed and monitored in accordance with international standards and of quality management (UNI EN ISO 13845).

Today, on the international stage, Nobil Metal exports to over 60 countries throughout the world.


Research & Development


In order to guarantee the continued maximum reliability of Nobil Metal manufacturing, the R&D staff make use of the following facilities

  • Spectrophotometer
  • Dynamometer
  • Thermal analysis - DTA
  • Granulometer
  • Scanning electron microscope (SEM)
  • Atomic force microscope (AFM)
  • Metallographic microscope
  • Microdurometer
  • Biology laboratory
  • Atomic absorption spectrophotometer
  • Infrared spectrophotometer
  • XPS (Surface Spectroscopy analysis)

The R&D division is the research, monitoring and development laboratory that Nobil Metal have created in order to guarantee the scientific and technological foundation necessary to be able to face the demands of a specific sector undergoing constant development, such as dental materials.


Hi-tech manufacturing


Controlled-atmosphere induction continuous casting machines are used for alloy manufacture (thus avoiding any contamination of the material).

In practice, the chamber containing crucible/mould assembly is under forced vacuum: this rarefied atmosphere is consequently saturated with deoxidising gas, and the entire alloying, casting, moulding and cooling cycle occurs in the complete absence of oxygen.

Technology combined with experience have made it possible to develop the STRIP-CAST system, thanks to which it is possible to obtain casts in their definitive shapes such as wires, sheets, bars and shapes, all with perfect surfaces, drastic reductions in work times, with essentially no waste and obviously the possibility of endless casting: this material is no longer subjected to the numerous rolling steps, but is ready for the customer in just a few steps, with the manufacturing quality absolutely guaranteed.

Along with "classic" manufacturing, for some years now Nobil Metal have been investing heavily in the production of powdered metals, and since the end of the 1980s have been pursuing the objective of making the raw materials for manufacturing sintered prosthetic devices. This foresightedness means they are now in the vanguard, with special atomisers for transforming alloy ingots into perfectly spherical, deoxidised microparticles, 5-40 microns in diameter.

Nowadays, the new manufacturing divisions use SLM (selective laser melting) machines, capable of manufacturing hundreds of prosthetic devices in a few hours using, precisely, the same powders manufactured by the company. Rapid Prototyping and stereolithography machines, manufacturing burnout resin or plastic parts, are based on similar technology. The company’s new manufacturing facility can provide total support for even the most demanding laboratory: with a simple mouse click, an STL (solid to layer) file can be sent, and the prosthetic devices made using CE materials received a few days later, along with the appropriate certification.

5 years of research and testing have converged into an ambitious programme: SINERGIA.


Every batch, ingot, wire, solder, attachment or prosthetic device is checked, analysed and certified by skilled expert staff, fully capable of handling such innovative CNC machines.


The ability to rely on such advanced technology is surely a guarantee of quality and security for all Nobil Metal customers.
