Israeli 3D printing and additive manufacturing solutions company Stratasys Inc. (Nasdaq: SSYS) has introduced the Objet500 Dental Selection 3D Printer for larger dental and orthodontic labs that require volume production of highly precise, life-like models. The new 3D printer brings high throughput to Stratasys exclusive multi-color, multi-material dental modeling.
The Objet500 Dental Selection 3D Printer’s large build area allows a dental laboratory to dramatically increase throughput while its triple-jetting technology can create a variety of dental-specific palettes allowing multiple applications to be combined in a single run.
The multi-color, multi-material 3D printing solution produces dental models with gum-like softness and color, a range of natural tooth shades, and nerve canals or other anatomy in contrasting materials. This is accomplished by combining Stratasys flexible and rigid PolyJet dental materials.
Stratasys Dental Solutions general manager Stefan Mueller said, “Seven months ago, Stratasys transformed digital dentistry by enabling ultra-realistic dental models to be 3D printed in a single run. This new level of flexibility, precision and efficiency was aimed to allow labs to streamline their digital workflow while improving their competitive edge. Now with the launch of the Objet500 Dental Selection 3D Printer, we are adding increased throughput and productivity to this winning formula by featuring Stratasys game-changing, triple-jetting technology on a larger platform. We believe this is a ‘must have’ 3D printing solution for larger dental and orthodontic labs that want to provide a superior customer experience while maintaining profitable volume production.”
