clinical orthodontics // feature Fantastic Take a trip through the research by Mark Payne As director of engineering for Henry Schein Orthodontics, Mark Payne is responsible for the development of new product innovations and manufacturing engineering for the company. He has over 25 years of experience in the orthodontic profession, including 18 years at Ormco, where he moved through the ranks to become the director of product and process development. He was at the forefront in the development of patient-specific appliances, with numerous patents to his credit. Payne is an accomplished technical leader, with claim to many successful inventions in both the medical device and consumer markets. He earned his degree in manufacturing engineering from California Polytechnic University in Pomona, California. 30 JULY / AUGUST 2016 // orthotown.com Let's go on a journey-an adventure, if you will-into a fascinating world where small, intricate and often complicated assemblies are created. Orthodontic appliances, minute in their structures yet precise and eminently functional, are fashioned from an alchemy of exotic metal alloys, interesting chemistries, the algorithms of virtual reality and the ingenuity of progressive thinkers (both orthodontists and engineers). The research and development department at Henry Schein Orthodontics (HSO) deploys several innovative technologies, including 3-D appliance design and virtual testing, additive printing, slow-motion videography and advanced manufacturing techniques. Each progressive step of the technological engineering process infuses another layer of precision into appliance design and fabrication. Together, these technologies realize three specific goals: to bring innovative, high-quality orthodontic appliances to market, to do so more quickly than ever before, and, perhaps more importantly, to offer a high degree of confidence that the appliances will perform effectively from their initial launches, not in their second or third generation. We're about to go behind the scenes at HSO to observe how the engineering team applies methodologies to design, test and manufacture orthodontic appliances. When I compare the technology we've incorporated into the research and development process with how companies operated when I started in the business more than 25 years ago, I wonder how we managed without these tools. (Try remembering how you functioned before you had a smartphone: It's hard to recall, isn't it?) STEP 1: Virtual simulation and testing The initial design phase has a kind of "animation" feel to it. While computer-aided design (CAD) has been a standard in engineering for decades, being able to test CAD designs in a virtual world using finite element analysis (FEA) has been a game-changer. FEA has been generalized to a wide variety of engineering disciplines, all http://www.orthotown.com
