Leading additive manufacturing solutions developer Stratasys, has introduced a new machine to its range of 3D printers for digital dentistry. The Objet Eden260VS Dental Advantage 3D Printer has been engineered to expand the 3D printing possibilities available to mid to large sized orthodontic labs.
The machine, which builds on the success of the popular Objet Eden260V platform, offers faster and more cost effective production of dental parts with fine detail.
Offering increased flexibility, including a new soluble option previously unavailable on PolyJet dental systems, the 3D printer is compatible with all Stratasys dental materials; VeroDent, VeroDentPlus and VeroGlaze. VeroGlaze is now classified as a fully Bio-compatible photopolymer, suitable for short term applications of mucosal-membrane contact, allowing dental labs to use VeroGlaze for testing precise veneer shades.
"The easy-to-use Objet Eden260VS Dental Advantage meets the needs of those dental and orthodontic labs seeking professional grade 3D printing capabilities with Stratasys' signature PolyJet speed, accuracy and consistency," says Avi Cohen, director of global dental at Stratasys.
To enable complete flexibility, users have the option to switch between soluble and water jet modes. The benefit of soluble support technology is it makes it easier to clean dental parts with fine features including small removable die inserts.
Cohen adds: "As our most versatile 3D printing solution for the dental sector to date, this new 3D printer meets a broad range of application needs that demand delicate features or fine and complex details, while offering low cost of ownership."
