Pioneer of Dental Spark Erosion
Master Dental Technician (MDT) Günter Rübeling, founder and managing director of SAE DENTAL, introduced the industrial spark erosion procedure into dentistry in 1982 and in doing so "revolutionised" a whole industry. The innovative SAE spark erosion procedure makes it possible for the first time ever to produce combined dental prostheses in telescope and attachment prosthodontics from hard base metal alloys, without the need for soldering.
By changing from the expensive gold alloys to the cheaper base metal alloys, such as cobalt-chromium-molybdenum and titanium, dental laboratories can produce combined fixed and removable dental prostheses extremely economically - with great advantages in terms of fit, function and aesthetics.
Since 1995, the SAE spark erosion procedure has also been used for the passivation of implant-retained metal structures. Specifically for this use, SAE DENTAL has developed and brought onto the market the
SAE Secotec Product Programme.
