The company says the move is targeted at addressing the growing demand for digital dentistry, orthodontics, and dental clinics in the region.
Part of the announcement also included the introduction of the Objet Eden260VS Dental Advantage system. Stratasys says the new system was designed to allow faster, and cost-effective, production of dental parts which need to include precise features and fine detail work. The new Objet Eden260VS Dental Advantage 3D printer features a soluble support option to enable easy cleaning of dental parts and simplify the removal of die inserts on dental models.
The Objet Eden260VS Dental Advantage offers 16-micron layer resolution and makes use of the full range of PolyJet dental materials. Those materials — such as VeroDent, VeroDentPlus, and VeroGlaze — are specifically engineered for dental applications and come in sealed cartridges. Stratasys’ clear bio-compatible MED610 material is used to produce orthodontic appliances, positioning trays, and surgical guides.
Stratasys says Dental Axess will focus on the sale and provision of local support and services for Stratasys’ dental portfolio.
Stratasys’ Southern Asia and Pacific general manager, Ido Eylon, said he believed that dental practitioners were increasingly seeing the clinical and productivity benefits that 3D printing could bring to their daily work.
“The dental market has always been a strategic focus at Stratasys,” says Eylon. “With the addition of Objet Eden260VS Dental Advantage to Stratasys’ wide range of solution offerings and the strengthening of our dental channel partner network, we are confident we’ll capitalize on the growing potential in the region.”
Dental Axess will focus on the sale and provisioning of local support and services for Stratasys’ portfolio of dental production systems.
“We believe that dental practitioners are increasingly seeing the clinical and productivity benefits that 3D printing can bring to their daily work,” says Eylon.
Stratasys offers a range of dental production solutions to clinics and labs engaged in the modeling process of customized dental products like orthodontics, crowns, bridges, and implants.
Dental Axess provides the Australian and New Zealand markets with a range of digital and prosthetic dental solutions, and from their headquarters in the North Ryde district of Sydney, the company acts as an independent distributor and integrator of CAD/CAM systems used in dental production processes.
