This powerful new combination comes with Keystone’s best-in-class, FDA-cleared night guard resin, KeySplint Soft® and KeyModel Ultra®, the go-to material for next-gen dental and orthodontic models along with the rest of Keystone’s laboratory and medical device printing materials, including KeyTray and KeyGuide. By responding to market needs, focusing on product quality, and rigorously ensuring that all KeyPrint products are safe, effective, and compliant with international standards, Keystone is fast becoming the leading choice for dental labs and clinics everywhere. All Keystone precision dental 3D printing resins are manufactured in the USA, and available immediately through Nexa3D’s expanding global channels.
Commenting on the collaboration, Keystone Dental President Ira Rosenau said, “We are thrilled to tailor our entire portfolio of KeyPrint dental 3D printing resins for Nexa3D, a company that is fast emerging as an additive polymer market leader. During our extensive internal optimization and validation testing, we confirmed that the NXE 400 produces outstanding quality prints at high volumes, making it an ideal additive manufacturing partner for the dental industry. We expect Nexa3D users to have an outstanding experience with our growing line of KeyPrint resins.”
Nexa3D’s ultrafast and high-resolution NXE 400 3D printer features revolutionary patented LSPc technology that combines superior build volume, extreme print uniformity, advanced process algorithms, modular design for onsite automation, and intelligent optimization. Offering an unprecedented 16-liter build volume and up to 20X productivity gains, the NXE 400 is transforming the 3D printing industry in the same way broadband internet opened new possibilities compared to dial-up access. The printer yields orders of magnitude part-throughput gains while offering the lowest cost of ownership in its class on the market. Nexa3D enters the lucrative dental market armed with all of Keystone’s game changing KeyPrint dental 3D printing resins, including KeySplint Soft, a material that delivers a unique combination of the strength needed to protect teeth with the added flexibility for improved patient comfort, all with a transparent and aesthetic appearance.
Avi Reichental, co-founder, Chairman and CEO, Nexa3D expressed his excitement, saying, “We are excited to partner with a company of the calibre and reputation of Keystone to jointly advance the range of available functional and affordable dental solutions for labs and practitioners. At Nexa3D, we are committed to advancing 3D printing performance and productivity through internal innovations and external collaborations. We are particularly pleased to partner with Keystone to bring our combined portfolio of 3D printing dental solutions to market, delivering new levels of speed, productivity and efficiency to the dental industry.”
Every NXE400 3D printer comes with accelerated part-to-print capabilities, including fully integrated build set up and print management software that can prepare part files for printing in half the time of other solutions. The printer is also fully interoperable with all leading digital dental workflows and providers.
Keystone Industries and Nexa3D are working together to apply circular economy principles into every phase of their material formulation and printing process. Through the implementation of end-to-end validated workflows, both companies are rigorously measuring and improving on what matters: minimizing process waste, reducing energy consumption per part, and working with customers around the world to reduce their overall carbon footprint.
