Scheu Dental announce digital orthodontic collaboration
Digital orthodontics is a growing market and it is fast becoming the industry standard thanks to its many advantages, including the ability to significantly shorten delivery times, raise production capacity and cut out bulky model storage.
Director of Global Dental at Stratasys Avi Cohen stated: "Scheu Dental has worked closely with Stratasys to qualify the complete process required to produce orthodontic appliances using the Scheu Dental equipment."
"Stratasys' 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."
The deal with Scheu Dental is expected to be a key moment for the sector and is anticipated to expand digital orthodontic sales on an international level.
"We are very pleased to offer our orthodontic lab customers access to complementary solutions from Stratasys. This represents yet another leap towards the age of the full digital orthodontic lab," said Christian Scheu, Chief Executive Officer of Scheu Dental.
"The knowledge learned through the successful co-operation 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 customisation to small and mid-sized labs alike," he added.
