Stratasys is one of the largest 3D printing manufacturers in the world. They have made a name for themselves within the manufacturing segment of the market, and continue to innovate aggressively. Earlier this week, the company announced their Objet500 multi-material, multi-color 3D printer, and immediately tech blogs lit up with excitement.
That’s not their only high quality, extremely useful machine though. Today, The Dental Advisor announced the winners of their annual awards for 2014, within the dental industry. The award for “Top Innovative Equipment,” once again has gone to Stratasys, and their Objet Eden260V printer. Last year Stratasys won the same exact award for the same printer.
We are honored to be recognized by The Dental Advisor for the second year in a row. The high degree of interest reflects 3D printing’s growing importance in digitizing dentistry and the significant value that the Objet Eden260V 3D Printer has in redefining manufacturing in the dental lab industry. Through the use of proven Objet 3D Printers for additive manufacturing and dental models with our advanced, medically approved materials, our customers are able to provide highly accurate and excellent-quality dental models and parts efficiently and cost-effectively. Moreover, dental labs are increasingly using the Objet-line of 3D Printers to offer a greater variety of dental solutions to their dentist clients, including in-house fabrication of fine detail models with outstanding surface finish,” said Avi Cohen, Director of Global Dental at Stratasys.
The Dental Advisor chose the product because of its “outstanding surface detail, easy management and maintenance, and high resolution in all axes.” The Objet Eden260V was the only 3D printer honored by the magazine this year, as well as in 2013. To win a reward from the Dental Advisor Magazine is not easy. After being voted in, the prestigious Editorial Board of the magazine discuss’s the decision between themselves, and comes to a final conclusion. The Board includes many very respected dental professionals with a wide range of experience in clinical dentistry, and research.
In a report issued by the magazine on this printer, they give an overview of how they see the 3D printing market integrating more rapidly within the dental industry:
3D printing of models by laboratories is entering an exciting new phase. Models can now be produced quickly, efficiently and accurately by laboratories with high-resolution 3D printers such as the Eden 260V (Objet Ltd.). Technology is changing the way dentists practice and dental laboratories operate. New business models and new production models are inevitable as the digital workflow continues to evolve.
