About this Episode

We are excited to have on good friend and supporter and advocate of our industry, Tony Prestipino from Artifex Dental Laboratory. Tony comes on to talk about how he learned about the profession, having a brother who is a prosthodontist and another bother in the lab business, getting into implants, and taking an All-on-X procedure and patenting the procedure. It’s hard to find anyone so willing to help anyone willing to ask.

Whip Mix’s new VeriWhirl resin cleaning station is the ideal piece of equipment to use in the 3D printed resin post process. It’s oscillating, multi-speed stirrer produces a tornado-like vortex every 30-seconds, and guarantees efficient, effective and powerful cleaning whether the units are individual or still attached to the build plate.

The two alcohol baths make an effective step-wash system. It cleans more efficiently and there is less alcohol needed, since it is re-used for both a fresh bath and a dirty bath.

The VeriWhirl's intelligent design offers features such as Mode, Time, and Start/Stop button display which gives the operator full and automatic control of the cleaning process. A mesh basket used in the wash container makes it easy to keep track of small printed parts when cleaning. The affordable unit’s one-year warranty ensures peace-of-mind for the owner.
