– Hall 9, Stand D12 –
Objet Ltd., the innovation leader in 3D printing for rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing, is demonstrating the benefits of adding 3D printing to the dental workflow, at International Expodental Rome, today. Exhibiting at Hall 9, Stand D12 from October 6-8 - Objet presents the new Bio-Compatible 3D printing material (MED610™) and its 3D printers that help dental labs to digitize their dentistry for more accurate and cost effective results. According to Objet, the material combines bio-compatibility with high dimensional stability and clear transparency. This makes it useful for PMMA simulation and a wide range of dental solutions - particularly the production of highly accurate, customized surgical guides.
Avi Cohen, Head of Medical Solutions at Objet adds, “Objet invests significantly in R&D in order to proactively meet the requirements of our customers. The advanced mechanical properties of the new Bio-Compatible material, including clear transparency, bring benefits to the entire medical and dental workflow - from surgical planning through to the procedure itself.”
The new Objet Bio-Compatible material is ideal for prolonged skin contact of over 30 days and mucosal-membrane contact of up to 24 hours. It has five medical approvals according to the harmonized standard ISO 10993-1: Cytotoxicity, Genotoxicity, Delayed Type Hypersensitivity, Irritation and USP Plastic Class VI.* MED610 is also manufactured under the ISO 13485:2003 certification, which specifies that each and every batch of the material undergoes bio-compatibility conformity testing, including GC-FID before it is packaged. This ensures the highest bio-compatible standards for dental solutions requirements.
Objet is also showcasing a broad range of the dental models at the event, specifically designed for the dental market. The material features extreme toughness, dimensional stability and great detail visualization-producing modelsthat can be handled immediately after being built.
Avi Cohen concludes, “Choosing the right equipment to get the best return on investment is not trivial. Objet enables dental practitioners to reap the maximum benefits from the digital dentistry era, which is exactly what we’ll be demonstrating at the International Expodental Rome.”
Among dental laboratories already using Objet 3D printing technology are Glidewell Laboratories, Albensi Laboratories, iDent Imaging and Remedent to fabricate unique stone models, orthodontic appliances, delivery and positioning trays, veneer try-ins, full and partial denture try-ins, surgical guides, clear aligners and retainers.
Watch Don Albensi, C.D.T., tell us the value Objet 3D printing has brought to Albensi Laboratories, including the reduction of their dental restorations cycle from 5-7 days to 2-3 days (video).
