3D Systems unveils a new dental platform

3D Systems has unveiled a next-generation additive manufacturing platform, based on the company’s Figure 4 technology and NextDent materials that delivers better, faster and more predictable patient treatments with disruptive total cost of operations that can revolutionize the multibillion-dollar dental industry.

The company expects the new platform to achieve improvements of up to 10 times in total cost of operations, along with significantly reduced fabrication times and far less material waste.

3D Systems has a deep domain expertise in the dental market, and is well-positioned to lead the next evolution of the dental industry. This is a direct result of the company’s multi-year development efforts of the Figure 4 printer technology, combined with the acquisition of NextDent’s portfolio of 12 clinically effective materials with regulatory approvals in over 70 countries.

Demonstrations of 3D Systems’ transformative solutions for digital dentistry will be featured at the International Dental Show (IDS) 2017, in Cologne, Germany, March 21-25, in the 3D Systems (Hall 3.1, booth M059), NextDent (Hall 4.1, booth E011) and 3Shape (Hall 4.2, booths L090, N091 and N090) displays at the Koelnmesse.
