What makes our products unique?
Tecnodent’s R&D department carefully research, day by day, for new materials and technologies, going beyond market trends. Tecnodent employs advanced CAD systems to design its products and develop 3D models. A special division of the Engineering Department is specifically dedicated to the production of prototypes. Our wide range of leatherette colours is the result of a long and careful analysis of the benefits of Chromotherapy. As a result our products are conceived to suit every kind of need.
The comfortable and functional design and the user-friendly systems of our products have been studied with contributions from psychology, engineering, biomechanics, mechanobiology, industrial design, physiology and anthropometry. Basically Tecnodent’s chairs and stools fit the human body and its cognitive abilities.
Three different kinds of polyurethane (PU) can be obtained by moulding: structural, or rigid, PU (can be co-moulded with metal inserts); integral PU (semi-rigid, with or without metal inserts); flexible PU (similar to foam rubber, used for upholstery). The covers and some supporting parts of the chairs and stools are made of structural and integral PU.
The upholstery, made with flexible PU and covered by imitation leather, is entirely seamless and with no sharp edges for maximum hygiene and easy cleaning. The injection machines used for moulding the PU are constantly monitored to make sure that process parameters and product specifications are strictly respected at all times
Every single product undergoes severe quality inspections during production and assembly, during acceptance testing and during packing (visual inspection). The conformity tests include mechanical operation tests, electronic tests, electric compatibility tests and aesthetic-visual inspections, especially on the paintwork and upholstery.
