Instrument Manufacturing & Design for Dental Materials Research
Reliable and accurate testing solutions with ease of use in a bio-realistic environment.
Our Dental Materials Testing Instrument Product Line
Dental materials research instruments must simulate the oral environment to prove a material’s ability to withstand service as a dental restorative. Proto-tech engineers focus on this requirement for every design, using only high quality components and specifying durable materials.
Realistic and meaningful results are another essential attribute of dental materials instruments, so Proto-tech made-to-order designs are based on engineering analysis of the bio-mechanical conditions and a survey of the published literature and standards of practice.
As well, experience has shown that ease-of-use is essential in labs where a variety of technicians with varying skill levels are using the equipment. Proto-tech designs are straight-forward, and include detailed instruction manuals, video tutorials for many instruments, and on-call support.
DO YOU NEED custom fixtures for your next materials test? We design, draft, and create. If your project is suited for 3-D printing, the turnaround time is especially impressive, and the tolerances are great. We can print shapes that used to be impossible with injection modeling techniques thanks to laser sintering. We can draft them up in SOLIDWORKS® and 3-D print them in super-tough nylon in white or 6 bright colors. If you need something tougher like brass or steel, we can do that too! Call us at 971-344-3730 for more details.
Our Customers Span the Globe
Proto-tech has been supplying instruments for dental materials research needs worldwide for almost 25 years. The designs appear in numerous scientific publications from industry leading institutions. Every instrument is available in 110 or 220v versions.
Our Company Values
We take pride in providing testing instruments that use the principles of sound physics to back them up. Besides supplying equipment to researchers, we have been awarded research grants by the NIH and have presented at the IADR Dental Research Conferences. We are an equal opportunity employer that provides a trend-forward work environment that empowers students and interns by teaching new abilities and developing design skills for scientific research.
