STRATASYS DENTAL

The 3D printer company Stratasys (Nasdaq: SSYS), which acquired Israeli company Objet in 2012, introduced a new 3D printer that prints dental materials.

Objet Eden 260VS Dental Advantage 3D printer is set to meet the production needs of mid-sized dental labs and mid-to-large sized orthodontic labs.

It offers productivity enhancements and greater cost-effectiveness for users, and is compatible with all Stratasys dental materials – VeroDent, VeroDentPlus and VeroGlaze – and it adds a soluble support option, previously unavailable on Polyjet dental systems. Soluble support technology allows the easy cleaning of dental parts with fine features, such as small removable die inserts in dental models. Additional benefits include automated support removal, which offers further advantages for dental labs by enabling lower labor cost per part.

For complete flexibility, users have the ability to switch between soluble and water jet modes to balance low-cost automation with the occasional need for hands-on support removal.

Stratasys global dental director Avi Cohen said, “Stratasys is fully committed to the digital dentistry market. The Objet Eden260VS Dental Advantage brings supremely accurate 3D printing technology to any dental lab seeking to benefit from the future of digital dentistry and orthodontics.”

Stratasys’ advanced dental material, VeroGlaze, now meets the requirements of a Bio-compatible photopolymer. This material is for applications requiring short-term, mucosal-membrane contact of up to 24 hours, enabling dental labs to use VeroGlaze to create veneer try-ins in precise A2 teeth color shade.

Cohen said, “The easy-to-use Objet Eden260VS Dental Advantage meets the needs of those dental and orthodontic labs seeking professional grade 3D printing capabilities with Stratasys’ signature PolyJet speed, accuracy and consistency. As our most versatile 3D printing solution for the dental sector to date, this new 3D printer meets a broad range of application needs that demand delicate features or fine and complex details, while offering low cost of ownership.”
