The collaboration will offer orthodontic labs a complete digital solution.

3D printing company Stratasys Inc. (Nasdaq: SSYS) has announced a collaboration agreement with Germany's Scheu Dental GmbH to offer orthodontic labs a complete digital solution.

Digital orthodontics is rapidly becoming the industry standard because of its many business advantages including the ability to significantly shorten delivery times, increase production capacity and eliminate bulky model storage. The collaboration with Scheu Dental will expand digital orthodontic sales globally.

Stratasys director of global dental Avi Cohen said, "Scheu Dental has worked closely with Stratasys to qualify the complete process required to produce orthodontic appliances using Scheu Dental equipment. Stratasys's goal is to provide productive and complete digital solutions to the market by teaming up with the leading orthodontic equipment and materials provider. This collaboration will provide dental labs with a full digital lab solution that sets new productivity standards."

Scheu Dental CEO Christian Scheu said, "This represents yet another leap towards the age of the full digital orthodontic lab. The knowledge learned through the successful cooperation of both companies in the orthodontic market has certainly allowed a faster and a more successful collaboration of the digital orthodontics highway for all orthodontic labs worldwide, bringing mass customization to small and mid-sized labs alike."

Stratasys was formed in 2012 by the merger of 3D printing companies Stratasys Inc. and Objet Ltd., based in Minneapolis and Rehovot. The merged company is headquartered in Rehovot.
