– Production ready ProJet® 3510 DPPro prints high volume precision dental wax-ups, implant drill guides, orthodontic patterns, and crown and bridge models, for the widest range of medical uses
– Experience this all-in-one 3D printer at the 31st annual LMT LAB DAY, the largest gathering of the national dental lab community
ROCK HILL, S.C. – 3D Systems (NYSE:DDD) announced today the immediate availability of its revolutionary all-in-one medical 3D printer, the ProJet 3510 DPPro, which the company plans to debut at LMT LAB DAY Chicago 2015. The ProJet 3510 DPPro, the latest in 3DS' stellar MultiJet (MJP) line, gives medical and dental labs the power to print precision dental wax-ups; durable implant drill guides; temperature-resistant, thermo-formable orthodontic patterns; and crown and bridge molds interchangeably, at up to twice the throughput of today's printers.
Armed with the ProJet 3510 DPPro's game-changing speed, throughput and versatility, dental and medical labs can print precision, personalized medical tools and devices created directly from patients' data, in a matter of hours--all in a smaller footprint than existing medical printers.
"Our primary purpose is to democratize access to more affordable and powerful tools for the benefit of our customers. With its high resolution, high capacity and expanded material compatibility, the DPPro can support the widest range of medical applications, at a very low cost of ownership," said Buddy Byrum, Vice President, Product Management, 3DS. "LMT LAB DAY is the perfect venue to demonstrate this new, multipurpose machine to those who will benefit most from it."
Engineered specifically for demanding dental and medical lab environments, the multipurpose ProJet 3510 DPPro 3D printer provides round-the-clock printing capabilities and features a large build volume, allowing lab managers to rethink maximum throughput and tighten production schedules. With the ProJet 3510 DPPro's variety of specifically engineered materials, labs can print enhanced, highly accurate wax-ups for crowns, bridges and partial denture frameworks, in addition to working models for crown and bridge, orthodontic, partial dentures, and medical models, such as a jaw models, in USP Class VI-capable VisiJet® Stoneplast.
The ProJet DPPro also produces superior, customized implant drill guides in a durable biocompatible plastic material. Enhanced with efficient material use, low-maintenance operation and an unprecedented five-year print head warranty, the ProJet DPPro conveniently melds with existing workflows and pays owners back on their investment faster.
At LMT LAB DAY 2015, 3DS plans to highlight its vast range of medical and dental solutions, including its Virtual Surgical Planning (VSP®), a clinically proven methodology for leveraging personalized medical imaging data to enable virtual planning of procedures supported by 3D printed surgical guides. 3DS will also showcase its latest 3D printed metal hybrid implant bars, partial frameworks, coping and bridges for dental procedures. In addition to the ProJet DPPro, 3DS will display its affordable and capable ProJet® 1200 micro-SLA desktop 3D printer for quickly creating highly precise dental wax-ups.
LMT LAB DAY 2015 takes place February 27 and 28, 2015, at the Hyatt Regency Chicago. 3DS will be in booth 837.
