Structo & pro3dure Partnering: Dental Customers Benefit from Expansion of Materials for Velox Ecosystem
Structo is a leading dental 3D printing solutions provider, headquartered in Singapore, that we caught up with late last year after they completed a funding round that would not only allow them to continue with additive manufacturing innovations but also to expand their presence worldwide. Over the past couple of years they have also offered innovation in creating orthodontic aligners, automated post-processing, and more.
Germany’s pro3dure, founded in 2013, offers a focus on generative and subtractive manufacturing, while integrating them into digital fabrication. Their team specializes in matching customized materials to the workflow of each customer, emphasizing 3D printing. Pro3dure also offers the greatest selection of 3D printing resins for dental applications.
“We strive to make our range of dental materials as widely available as possible,” said Dr. Martin Klare, CEO of pro3dure. “The Structo Velox is a revolutionary ecosystem that will change how 3D printing is adopted in the dental office and we are proud to introduce our range of 3D printing resins with the world’s largest spectrum of dental applications available on that platform.”
Now, dental labs using the Velox ecosystem will be able to use pro3dure materials too as many new applications open to customers, allowing 3D printing of the following also:
- Surgical guides
- Indirect bonding trays
Huub van Esbroeck emphasizes how critical partnerships are, especially with closely related companies like pro3dure, allowing them to ‘push the envelope of chairside 3D printing’ within the dental industry.
“We are committed to continue developing the Velox ecosystem of hardware, software and materials to empower the delivery of same day dentistry” said Huub van Esbroeck, Founder at Structo. “Today’s announcement will see Velox users gain access to pro3dure’s range of industry-leading dental 3D printing materials which gives them a range of options for their in-office 3D printing needs.
“This is another step for us to provide more options to all Velox users worldwide and we will continue working with industry leaders to add more value and streamline the chairside 3D printing workflow for our industry,” continued van Esbroeck. “We started off with just the hardware that does the print, wash and cure cycle of a 3D printing workflow. With more partnerships like these, we are confident that the Velox ecosystem will be able to empower dentists to deliver better patient care with revolutionary new solutions,” Huub added.
Many innovations continue within 3D printing, and specifically for the dental industry with progress in creating dental implants, targeting mass production of digital fabrication in dentistry, and more.
