Delcam receives Queen’s Award

by Claudia Salwiczek, DTI

BIRMINGHAM, UK/LEIPZIG, Germany: Delcam, a UK-based supplier of advanced CAD/CAM solutions for manufacturing industry, has recently been presented with the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the Innovation category. The award recognises Delcam’s continuous development of its software for the design and manufacture of dental restorations.

Following early success with DentMILL, a highly-automated knowledge-based programme specifically designed to generate toolpaths to machine restorations, Delcam began the introduction of the partner design programme, DentCAD, with the aim to provide software that would be easy for dental technicians to use, regardless of their previous knowledge of computer-aided design. To achieve this, the entire process is based on a series of intuitive Wizards that use dental imagery and terminology to guide the user through the entire design process. A wide range of visualisation tools is available at every stage allowing for a detailed inspection of the shape being developed. They furthermore ensure that the finished restoration fits accurately and comfortably in the patient’s mouth.

Owing to the continued development of the two programmes, they now offer levels of speed and accuracy that are impossible with traditional, manual methods. High-quality restorations can now be produced within hours that would previously have taken days, thereby giving a much faster service to patients.

The Queen’s Awards are the UK’s most coveted commercial awards, with only a small percentage of those who enter each year measuring up to the demanding standards required to win an Award. This latest recognition for Delcam follows the receipt of Queen’s Awards in 2003 for the development of ArtCAM and for PowerINSPECT in 2004.
