Stratasys Ltd., a leader in polymeric 3D printing solutions, today introduced the latest printer in the company’s growing portfolio of 3D printing solutions for the dental industry, the Stratasys OriginÂ® A dental. The new printer is the second 3D printer resulting from the acquisition of Origin by Stratasys in December 2020, which was a key step in the company’s strategy to become the leader in polymeric 3D printing for manufacturing. The Stratasys Origin One Dental and the recently introduced Stratasys J5 DentaJetâ¢ The 3D printer provides dental laboratories with complete additive manufacturing solutions to meet the needs of the growing dental customer base.
Over the past few years, the demand for dental solutions has grown significantly driven by several trends including the digitalization of dental workflows and the demand for cosmetic dentistry. These trends, associated with the consolidation of dental laboratories into production centers and with competitive labor conditions, are pushing dental laboratories to adopt production solutions optimized for speed, quality and throughput, while remaining reliable, scalable and flexible.
The Stratasys Origin One Dental 3D printer is powered by a proprietary printing technology called P3â¢ Programmable light-curing, a breakthrough in digital light-based printing principles, which delivers industry-leading precision, part-to-part consistency and throughput. Origin One Dental offers an open hardware infrastructure that supports a variety of applications and enables higher throughput at a lower cost per part compared to competing technologies. The printer is designed for flow production, small batches of a single material requiring short print time, maximizing throughput for each application and streamlining the production process.
âWhen our demands for inbound digital prints started to increase, we knew we needed a production-grade dental 3D printer that would allow us to scale our operation. With the Origin One Dental printer, we have found the unique combination of precision, detailed reproduction and the lowest cost per part, âsaid Chris Waldrop, President, Burdette Dental Lab. âWe have been using our printer for over 10 hours a day and the reliability is the best we have ever had. “
In March 2021, Stratasys launched the J5 DentaJet, the only multi-material dental 3D printer capable of printing mixed dental parts in a single printing tray without sacrificing precision. Based on PolyJet technology, the J5 DentaJet can also produce realistic multi-colored case presentations. This printer is ideal for batch printing, especially when printing mixed trays of parts overnight or unattended. Together, the printers give dental customers the ability to streamline their processes while increasing production to meet the demands of the dental industry.
âStratasys is the only additive manufacturing company that offers multiple 3D printing technologies to dental laboratories. We are enabling laboratories to increase production today and stay ready for tomorrow, âsaid Osnat Philipp, vice president, Health for Stratasys. âEach printer presents an additive manufacturing solution for a different type of production need, maximized throughput and production time, while providing flexibility to meet the changing needs of this growing market that is expected to reach $ 6.5 billion. dollars by 2025.
