Aligners are the name of the transparent braces made by Best Smile AG in Winterthur. The company is on course for success and is experiencing strong order growth, which is constantly placing new demands on the production processes. The classic manual work of a dental technician is mapped in an automation solution that relieves the staff of time-critical processes. Every product is based on a 3D scan of the patient, so precise individual production is required.

In close cooperation with the braces manufacturer Best Smile AG, the ILT is developing a production line that achieves a remarkable increase in throughput while maintaining product quality. 

Best Smile AG's production has a high degree of digitalisation; a virtually displayed denture impression can be used to produce an exactly fitting aligner. In this development, the ILT once again demonstrates its interdisciplinary expertise in the fields of mechatronics, robotics and Industry 4.0.
