EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. & REHOVOT, Israel – (BUSINESS WIRE) – Stratasys Ltd. (NASDAQ: SSYS) today announced a new 3D printer that brings dental laboratories 3D printing efficiency combined with the realism and precision of PolyJet. The J5 DentaJet ™ 3D printer is the only multi-material 3D printer that allows technicians to load mixed trays of dental parts. The new 3D printer can produce at least five times more dental parts than conventional 3D printers on a single mixed compartment. Its compact footprint, however, only takes up 0.43 m² of floor space.
Dental laboratories need to manufacture multiple parts from multiple materials, either for Removable Partial Denture (RPD) applications or for dental implant cases. For example, each implant case includes an upper and lower rigid opaque model, a soft gingival mask, and a biocompatible surgical guide. This requires three different materials, so the technicians will either have to use multiple 3D printers or create separate 3D prints with different materials. The J5 DentaJet can easily process up to five materials, including liner.
The multi-colored, multi-material J5 DentaJet also creates 3D-printed case presentations with realism that were previously only possible with time-consuming wax models. Now designs can be produced digitally in a few hours. Thanks to the high resolution of PolyJet materials, the accuracy of the models allows dentists to insert crowns and bridges in minutes – up to 18.75 microns or less than half the width of a human hair.
“Dental and orthodontic models are increasingly relying on 3D printing, but the process is still too manual and time-consuming,” said Osnat Philipp, Vice President Healthcare at Stratasys. “The J5 DentaJet advances the full digital transformation of dental modeling with the powerful combination of automation and accuracy. The system runs largely unattended, and you can even make a construction drawer with a variety of different models from different materials. It’s a productivity monster. ”
NEO Lab is a family-owned orthodontic laboratory based in Andover, Massachusetts. The company beta tested the J5 DentaJet to make life easier for its 120 employees as they serve 3,000 orthodontic and dental clinics across the country. CEO and co-owner Christian Saurman said they were interested in using the system to get better surface quality, but it also helped them handle large volumes of parts efficiently. “We produce 600 orthodontic devices a day,” he said. “The DentaJet 3D printer is easy to use, can produce many models in a single print and we don’t spend a lot of time post-processing the models after they leave the device. Our models move from printer to production faster than ever before. ”
Motor City Lab Works, a full-service orthodontic laboratory in Birmingham, Michigan, has also beta tested the J5 DentaJet. Dr. John Dumas, Orthodontist and CEO of Motor City Lab Works, was impressed with the high accuracy and high volume the machine can produce. “As an orthodontist, we really need high-precision models to make sure the patient devices fit the best. We needed a printer that could accommodate the combination of a larger volume volume and higher resolution models. The J5 DentaJet offers us both luxury items in one machine. ”
Stratasys estimates that the total addressable segment for 3D dental printing is approximately $ 1 billion. With a growing number of 3D printing technologies, from polymerization to stereolithography, Stratasys can be a full 3D printing provider for its customers, customizing the right technology for the right application. The J5 DentaJet is now ideal for customers who want to produce large quantities of realistic, high-precision models.
The J5 DentaJet is launched with a full range of resins tailored to the needs of the dental industry. Available biocompatible resins include a clear resin, VeroGlaze opaque white for temporary placement in the mouth, and a clear and flexible resin. In addition, digital separator material automatically coats models to make it easier to separate the acrylic device from the model and remove wax and residue. Other resins available include VeroDent PureWhite and CMY resins for color.
