Stratasys, a leader in polymer 3D printing, announced the J3 DentaJet 3D printer, an entry-level multi-material printer that allows dental labs to produce extremely accurate mixed applications in a single tray at the same time.
It increases productivity for implantology, crowns and bridges, and orthodontics applications in a small footprint.
J3 DentaJet – Multi-material 3D Printer
The J3 DentaJet 3D printer uses biocompatible resins (clear, rigid, and flexible) to produce mixed parts for crown and bridge models, implantology (model, surgical guides, and gingiva masks), and orthodontic models in the same print job.
Its large circular build tray and High-Speed mode can assist labs in scaling and increasing output. PolyJet, Stratasys‘ proprietary jetting technology, cures printed parts during the printing process, reducing post-processing time. As a result, lab personnel no longer have to deal with uncured resin, which improves workplace safety.
“This printer is a great value for smaller dental labs that have previously been limited to small, single-material, table-top 3D printers and are ready to level up their dental production to offer higher-quality digital dental products. Adding a J3 DentaJet 3D printer can help labs produce best-in-class dental applications that require extreme accuracy at scale as demand is growing.”– Ronen Lebi, Vice President of Dental, Stratasys
According to Ilan Sapir, Manager, Digital Treatment Planner, Glidewell Dental, a recent customer of the J3 DentaJet, “We find PolyJet to be the best available technology for printing surgical guides, especially ones that require complex geometries such as stackable guides. Other technologies just can’t achieve the same level of precision and accuracy. The J3 DentaJet enabled us to access the most advanced printing technology, packaged in a small footprint with a large print capacity.”
The J3 DentaJet joins the J5 DentaJet® and Origin® One Dental as part of the Stratasys suite of dental-specific 3D printers, all of which can be operated and managed using GrabCAD Print, Stratasys’ user-friendly software for streamlining print preparation workflow. The new printer will be on display at the LMT Lab Day Chicago on February 23-25, as well as the IDS global trade fair in Cologne, Germany, on March 14-18. Stratasys is already taking orders for the printer, which will ship in March.
