Over the last decade, many companies have been developing and distributing products to facilitate automation or CAD CAM for dental labs. This transition includes many older existing manufacturers and distributors of analog products. In fact nearly everyone selling into dental laboratories is in the CAD CAM market to some degree. As a result, today there are so many players and systems in the market, we have a file and data overload quagmire. Many labs today have several different devices that require independent workflows and databases. This could include a database for CAD files, another for intraoral scan files (possibly multiple places to keep different IOS device data) and still another for lab management, CAM and so on. CAP has spent the last three years working on a new software platform, CAPZilla, to organize and streamline the workflow, data and CAD CAM processes.
There is no question, CAD CAM has allowed lab technicians to be able to produce restorations more efficiently. There are however many areas within the workflow where the lack of integration between processes and systems adds labor, potential error and an inability to properly track and manage workflows. This is where CAPZilla fills a void. CAPZilla is a new frontier of automated workflow.
The main benefits of CAPZilla are to:
CAPZilla streamlines workflows, organizes data, reduces remakes and like CAD CAM in general, saves time and money. Essentially CAPZilla completes the integration of many CAD CAM software and hardware devices.
CAPZilla current supports the following features:
Features coming soon:
To get the most out of your digital solutions and move to lean manufacturing with measurable results and predictability, the unsurpassed integration of CAPZilla is a must have.
We have been using CAPZilla at CAP for years and have been beta testing the software for one year in six outside laboratories. We are planning a logical roll out, first to CAP customers using CAP solutions. In addition, we will be including CAPZilla with sales of CAP Complete CAD CAM systems and CAP-distributed mills.
