The medical technology company Dreve Otoplastik has opened a new earmould laboratory to boost production numbers. The Germany-based firm also aims to set standards for digitalised processes across the industry.
Dreve, a pioneer in innovative manufacturing technologies such as 3D printing and precision milling, aims to boost its competitive advantages with the increased digitally-oriented production the new lab brings. Located at the group’s headquarters in the North Rhine-Westphalian district town of Unna, the laboratory means increased production while maintaining lead times of two to three days.
With its central focus of earmoulds using state-of-the art technology and functional materials such as Biopor, FotoTec, and VarioTherm, Dreve supplies all major hearing aid manufacturers.
”Our goal was to redefine the standard for digitization in otoplastics production and significantly increase the sustainability of our processes in the process," said Managing Director, Dr. Volker Dreve (pictured opening the new lab).
