Stratasys to demonstrate how 3D printing cuts costs and saves production time for dental technicians using Polyjet technology
At IDS 2017 Stratasys intends to show how the latest 3D printing technology enables faster and more cost-effective production of more precise dental appliances, and how its “unique” full-colour, multi-material 3D printing PolyJet technology maximises versatility and productivity in the dental lab.
This year’s International Dental Show (IDS) will see leading 3D printing provider Stratasys demonstrate how dental and orthodontic labs and clinics are successfully deploying its superior PolyJet technology to transform labour-intensive, highly-manual dental production processes into a seamless digital workflow that streamlines procedures and slashes costs.
As a result, dental users can generate cost and time savings of up to 90% during production of functional orthodontic/dental models and surgical guides, while ensuring the creation of more accurate, comfortable, and effective dental appliances.
A spokesperson said, “Through a range of customer examples, visitors to Stratasys’ stand will see how the company is shaping digital dentistry via its latest specially-designed dental series of PolyJet 3D printers that meet the ongoing and future challenges of labs and clinics.
“Combining intraoral scanning, CAD design and 3D printing, these solutions enable quick and accurate production of crown and bridge models, implant models and surgical guides, and orthodontic models for appliance fabrication, all with a precise surface finish and unprecedented realism.”
Stratasys provides a broad dental solution offering, which enables all dental labs to cut days off delivery times and go straight from intraoral scan to in-house production with a seamless digital workflow.
Speaking Corner demonstrates advantages of 3D printing for dentistry
Another highlight of Stratasys’ stand will be its informative ‘Speaking Corner’, thanks to which visitors can gain insights into how Stratasys PolyJet 3D printing technology can help transform and streamline dental operations. Amongst the speakers will be Stratasys 3D printing experts, as well as dental and orthodontic customers, who will share their knowledge and experience about how 3D printing continues to revolutionise the dental industry.
See Stratasys at IDS on Stand L-48/M-49, Hall 3.1 at Cologne Messe from March 21-25, 2017.
