Stratasys, Ltd. introduced the Objet30 OrthoDesk 3D Printer, specially designed for smaller orthodontic labs and clinics. According to the company, the Objet30 OrthoDesk now makes digital orthodontics accessible for facilities of all sizes.
Digital orthodontics is rapidly becoming the industry standard because of its many business advantages including the ability to significantly shorten delivery times, increase production capacity and eliminate bulky model storage. Until today, due to cost considerations, 3D printers have only been practical for larger labs.
“Objet30 OrthoDesk is great for smaller labs. It offers efficiency, quality and accuracy in a convenient desktop size which is just right for us,” said Ana L. Marin, lab owner, ARCAD Lab. “It’s enabling us to expand our services to a wider range of customers. I definitely see Objet30 OrthoDesk as a game-changer.”
“Stratasys continues to make digital orthodontics happen, one lab and clinic at a time,” said Avi Cohen, director of global dental at Stratasys. “We are excited to launch the Objet30 OrthoDesk and bring the most accurate 3D printing technology to all the smaller labs and clinics who want to benefit from the future of orthodontics, today.”
Stone models, orthodontic appliances, delivery and positioning trays, clear aligners, retainers and surgical guides can all be produced significantly faster and much more accurately than before.
