WASHINGTON, U.S.: Another court case in the drawn-out patent battle between Align Technology and 3Shape has come to a close. A notice of final determination issued by the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) found that there was no Section 337 violation and that, while 3Shape had infringed upon certain Align patent claims, those claims were found to be invalid.

COPENHAGEN, Denmark: Whereas it was previously impossible to imagine a dental laboratory adopting a fully digital workflow, digital dentistry has already redefined the previously established dental procedures and empowered dental professionals and clinicians to take the leap and immerse themselves in a digital future.

COPENHAGEN, Denmark: With its wide-ranging scanner portfolio, 3Shape has always provided dental professionals with the leading technology that promised to drive laboratory productivity and boost business growth.
