Dental-driven 3D printing solution and materials reaching diverse locations and dental businesses
Minneapolis, Minn; Rehovot, Israel – Stratasys Ltd. (NASDAQ: SSYS), a manufacturer of 3D printers and materials for personal use, prototyping and production, today announced it has observed an accelerated adoption of its Objet30 OrthoDesk 3D Printer, bringing the advantages of digital dentistry across the world to such diverse locations as Saudi Arabia, Australia, Mauritius Islands and Costa Rica.
Launched just this year, the Objet30 OrthoDesk 3D Printer is an affordable, simple-to-use desktop system which is designed to enable a cost-effective entry point to the many benefits of digital dentistry. This system opens up a new range of possibilities for smaller dental labs including the ability to significantly shorten delivery times, increase production capacity, and eliminate bulky model storage – which may contribute to the expansion of digital dentistry.
Prior to its introduction, due to cost considerations, 3D printers were only cost effective when utilized in larger labs. Leveraging Stratasys 3D printing technology, dental labs of any size can now efficiently produce stone models, orthodontic appliances, delivery and positioning trays, retainers and surgical guides.
"The Objet30 OrthoDesk 3D Printer is contributing to shortening lab service delivery times for our customers in Brazil; I definitely see it as a game-changer," explained Dr. Bruno Gribel, CEO of Compass3D Brazil.
"We are witnessing a growing demand for our new Objet30 OrthoDesk 3D Printer," said Avi Cohen, Director, Global Dental, Stratasys. "As dental labs constantly explore new ways to grow their business and increase productivity, they are looking to Stratasys' growing portfolio of customized 3D printers and unique dental materials. These solution offerings provide highly accurate and flexible 3D printing technology to smaller labs and clinics who want to benefit from the future of dentistry, today."
