Stratasys introduces most versatile 3D printer for dentistry

20 January 2015

3D printer manufacturer Stratasys Ltd has introduced the Objet Eden260VS Dental Advantage 3D Printer. The new system delivers expanded solutions for digital dentistry.

The printer is aimed at mid-size dental labs and mid-to-large-sized orthodontic labs and supersedes Stratasys' Objet Eden260V Dental Advantage platform with new capabilities.

Offering productivity enhancements and greater cost-effectiveness the new printer is compatible with all Stratasys dental materials — VeroDent, VeroDentPlus and VeroGlaze — and it adds a soluble support option, previously unavailable on PolyJet dental systems. Soluble support technology allows the easy cleaning of dental parts with fine features, such as small removable die inserts in dental models. Additional benefits include automated support removal, which offers further advantages for dental labs by enabling lower labour cost per part.

The printer can switch between soluble and water jet modes to balance low-cost automation with the occasional need for hands-on support removal.

Stratasys' advanced dental material, VeroGlaze, now meets the requirements of a Bio-compatible photopolymer. This material is ideal for applications requiring short-term, mucosal-membrane contact of up to 24 hours, enabling dental labs to use VeroGlaze to create veneer try-ins in precise A2 teeth colour shade.

"The 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

"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."
