20 January 2015
3D printer manufacturer Stratasys Ltd has introduced the Objet
Eden260VS Dental Advantage 3D Printer. The new system delivers
expanded solutions for digital dentistry.
The printer is aimed at mid-size dental labs and
mid-to-large-sized orthodontic labs and supersedes Stratasys' Objet
Eden260V Dental Advantage platform with new capabilities.
Offering productivity enhancements and greater cost-effectiveness
the new printer is compatible with all Stratasys dental materials —
VeroDent, VeroDentPlus and VeroGlaze — and it adds a soluble support
option, previously unavailable on PolyJet dental systems. Soluble
support technology allows the easy cleaning of dental parts with
fine features, such as small removable die inserts in dental models.

Stratasys' advanced dental material, VeroGlaze, now meets the
requirements of a Bio-compatible photopolymer. This material is
ideal for applications requiring short-term, mucosal-membrane
contact of up to 24 hours, enabling dental labs to use VeroGlaze to
create veneer try-ins in precise A2 teeth colour shade.
"The Objet Eden260VS Dental Advantage meets the needs of those
dental and orthodontic labs seeking professional grade 3D printing
capabilities with Stratasys' signature PolyJet speed, accuracy and
consistency," says Avi Cohen, director of global dental at Stratasys
"As our most versatile 3D printing solution for the dental sector
to date, this new 3D printer meets a broad range of application
needs that demand delicate features or fine and complex details,
while offering low cost of ownership."
