Towards the dental laboratory 4.0
Digital technology breaks new ground and brings new possibilities, which can be exploited only if the dental technician is able to play his new role.
The dental laboratory sector, which has always been associated with manual ability and skills of the single technicians, is undergoing a total change in recent years, thanks to the new digital technologies. Digitalisation, virtualisation and CAD/CAM systems are the new instruments, and the new language of the dental technician. At the start of this fourth industrial revolution, great opportunities can be seized for those who can perceive and manage the change.
The opportunities offered by digital technologies
Technology neither creates, nor destroys professionalism. It adds value to it.
First of all, it is important to understand that the digital age adds great value to the role of the dental technician, who is not a mere user of preset systems, but an autonomous operator specialised in the use of digital tools.

Tecno-Gaz and the dental laboratory 4.0 evolution
We have been developing technologies and methods for about 40 years
, thus becoming leading figures in prosthetic dentistry. This industrial commitment will take us as leaders into the world of milling and CAD/CAM systems.
Academy. The route that we want to follow with our customers
In Tecno-Gaz, first we want to be consultants, and then partners; therefore, we have organised a project named Academy. A consultancy course which we guarantee to our customers as a sign of the cooperation culture which we are implementing in this project. Academy involves a specific programme articulated in 4 main points.
- Pre-sales information activities
The purchase of a milling machine requires an organisational review of the working approach; therefore it is very important to know all the aspects involved in this new project. Tecno-Gaz arranges specific meetings held by specialists, who will be able to give complete information to potential customers, in order to let them know all the aspects connected with the digital workflow process. This activity will also be personalised according to the needs of every single potential customer, who will have the chance to receive information and proposals tailored to his/her needs.
- Shipment – installation – training
The shipment and delivery of any Tecno-Gaz Axya product are very important. The milling machine is delivered by qualified personnel who carry out the correct installation and commissioning of the device. A theoretical/practical training is subsequently arranged, with initial tutoring in the practical use of the device.
- Post-sales services
• Technical support and tutoring with the possibility to access multilevel services.
• Possibility to request 2nd level training.
• Possibility to benefit from supplementary services in case of machine downtime.
- Personalised financial and commercial proposals
Every sales proposal is tailored to the customer’s needs.
