Renishaw, provider of laser melting machines based in Gloucestershire, England and BEGO Bremer Goldschlägerei Wilh. Herbst GmbH & Co. KG, a leading specialist in dental prosthodontics, have concluded an agreement that licenses Renishaw to use BEGO patents for additive manufacturing in dental applications.

Based in Bremen, Germany BEGO, is one of the leading companies in dental prosthodontics and implantology. In the growing market of digital CAD/CAM solutions, BEGO holds various patents in additive manufacturing processes for the dental sector.

The new licensing agreement between Renishaw and BEGO will allow the Renishaw Group to strengthen its existing dental business.

Christoph Weiss, managing partner of BEGO says, "The dental industry is one of the most competitive industries worldwide and the licensing agreement strengthens the position of Renishaw and BEGO."

The agreement will allow Renishaw to sell and utilise their additive manufacturing machines for dental market applications and give Renishaw's customers access to patents from BEGO. "It also comes at a time when we are introducing a range of innovative processes for the manufacture of dental structures." says Geoff McFarland, Renishaw's Group Engineering Director.

BEGO launched additive manufacturing (AM) technologies into the dental industry in 2001. The AM process allows the production of precision metal parts direct from 3D CAD data in a layer building process that removes many of the design limitations and material waste associated with conventional 'subtractive' milling processes.
