The 3D printers at Align Technology turn out half a million parts every day—an exceptional scale that makes the company the largest user of 3D printing in the world.

But, as lots of companies have learned, installing a 3D printing capability is only the first step toward digital production. Align’s massive, custom-built additive production line is part of a digital workflow that begins when a patient’s mouth is scanned and incorporates generative design, deep learning, and lots of automation.

In this episode Jon Bruner speaks with Emory Wright, Senior Vice President for Global Operations at Align. Joe Hogan, Align's CEO, is speaking at the Digital Factory Conference on May 7, alongside other CEOs, CTOs, and CIOs who are transforming their businesses through manufacturing.
