The smaller, entry-level system enables dental labs to produce extremely accurate mixed applications, in a single tray, simultaneously.
Stratasys has recently introduced the J3 DentaJet 3D printer – an entry-level, multi-material printer that enables dental labs to produce extremely accurate mixed applications, in a single tray, simultaneously.
The J3 DentaJet will make its European premiere at the upcoming IDS global trade fair in Cologne, Germany, in March 2023. The new printer is set to be showcased amongst Stratasys’ existing range of leading dental solutions, including the J5 DentaJet and Origin One Dental.
“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,” said Ronen Lebi, Vice President of Dental at Stratasys. “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.”
The J3 DentaJet 3D printer features biocompatible resins (clear, rigid, and flexible) and can create mixed parts for crown and bridge models, implantology (model, surgical guides, and gingiva masks), and orthodontic models – all in the same print job. Its large, circular build tray and ‘High-Speed’ mode can help labs to scale and boost output. PolyJet, Stratasys’ proprietary jetting technology, cures the printed parts during the print process – minimizing post-processing. As a result, lab personnel no longer need to handle uncured resin – improving workplace safety.
“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,” said Ilan Sapir, Manager of the Digital Treatment Planner at Glidewell Dental. “The J3 DentaJet enabled us to access the most advanced printing technology, packaged in a small footprint with a large print capacity.”
