Desktop Health, a healthcare division of Desktop Metal, Inc. dedicated to developing 3D printing solutions for personalised medicine, and Keystone Industries, a trusted dental manufacturer of biocompatible, cutting-edge, patented photopolymer resins, have announced a collaboration to make a wide range of Keystone 3D printing dental resins available on Desktop Health’s Einstein 3D printer, starting with KeySplint Soft.
Desktop Health and Keystone will collaborate to deliver the highest productivity, precision, and performance 3D printing solutions to the dental market by combining established resins with innovative print platforms.
KeySplint Soft – 3D Printing Dental Resins
Over the next few months, the companies will work together to validate additional KeyPrint resins for a variety of dental applications on the Einstein platform, including KeySplint Hard, KeyOrtho IBT, KeyDenture Try-In, and KeyMask.
KeySplint Soft is a 3D printing resin that has been cleared by the FDA for the fabrication of flexible nightguards, dental splints, and bleaching trays. This DLP-optimized resin combines the strength required to protect teeth with added flexibility for improved patient comfort, all while remaining transparent and aesthetic.
“We are excited to work with Keystone Industries to make market-leading and trusted third-party resins available on our breakthrough Einstein 3D printer for dental clinicians and labs. We believe this partnership will help accelerate the adoption of digital solutions in the dental industry by bringing new levels of precision and productivity to advanced materials for a range of applications.”– Ric Fulop, Founder and CEO of Desktop Metal
Ira Rosenau, president of Keystone’s dental division said, “Keystone Industries is committed to validating our KeyPrint line of dental resins in the most innovative and widely-adopted 3D printers for the dental market. Desktop Health and its Einstein 3D printer fits well within the scope of our premium partnerships, and we were able to quickly validate the Einstein as KeyPrint Compatible, including with our leading KeySplint Soft material for flexible night guards and splints.”
Rosenau added, “We are looking forward to working with the creative Desktop Health team to offer dental professionals an excellent combination of innovative resins with a reliable, high-performance platform like the Einstein.”
The Einstein printer, designed specifically for dental professionals, uses Digital Light Processing (DLP) technology to achieve all of the key features required for superior 3D printing: accuracy, speed, and versatility. The exclusive NanoFit 385 technology ensures that every application produces an accurate fit and a natural-looking finish with stunning clarity. The Einstein printer, which is equipped with Hyperprint™ technology to harness the power of heat and closed-loop processing, enables dental professionals to fabricate a wide range of dental applications, from splints, guards, and models to dentures, with ease and repeatability, and at up to 50% faster speeds than its predecessor.
The Einstein printer and KeySplint Soft resin are both now available for purchase.
