Stratasys Launches Triple-Jetting 3D Printer for High Volume Dental Labs

Stratasys has introduced the Objet500 Dental Selection 3D Printer for larger dental and orthodontic labs that require volume production of highly precise, life-like models. The new 3D printer brings high throughput to Stratasys’ special multi-color, multi-material dental modeling.

The Objet500 Dental Selection 3D Printer’s large build area allows a dental laboratory to dramatically increase throughput, while its triple-jetting technology can create a variety of dental-specific palettes, allowing multiple applications to be combined in a single run.

Accurately Simulates Look and Feel of Teeth and Gums

The multi-color, multi-material 3D printing solution produces dental models with gum-like softness and color, a range of natural tooth shades, and nerve canals or other anatomy in contrasting materials. This is accomplished by simultaneously combining Stratasys flexible and rigid PolyJet dental materials, including:

  • VeroDent (MED670), a natural peach-tone material offering high-quality detail, strength and durability.
  • VeroDentPlus (MED690), a dark beige material that creates ultra fine features and finish, and offers excellent strength, accuracy and durability.
  • VeroGlaze (MED620), an opaque material with A2 shading, meaning dental labs can now offer dentist offices the best color match in the industry. Ideal for veneer try-ins and diagnostic wax-ups, VeroGlaze is medically approved for temporary in-mouth placement, up to 24 hours.
  • Clear Bio-compatible (MED610), can produce orthodontic appliances, delivery and positioning trays, surgical guides for temporary in-mouth placement and investment casting patterns for removable partial dentures.

“Seven months ago, Stratasys transformed digital dentistry by enabling ultra-realistic dental models to be 3D printed in a single run. This new level of flexibility, precision, and efficiency — together with life-like natural tooth shade color models – was aimed to allow labs to streamline their digital workflow while improving their competitive edge,” said Steffen Mueller, General Manager, Dental Solutions, Stratasys.
