New Objet260 Dental Selection 3D Printer Takes Digital Dentistry Realism and Precision to the Next Level

Employs unique triple-jetting technology to produce ultra-realistic dental models with multiple materials and colors in a single print

Improves surgical precision by creating anatomical models that clearly depict bone, nerve and teeth

Accurately reproduces soft gingiva to validate functional testing for implants, crowns and bridges

SINGAPORE, March 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Stratasys Ltd. (Nasdaq: SSYS) a leading global provider of 3D printing and additive manufacturing solutions, is introducing the Objet260 Dental Selection 3D Printer at the International Dental Show this week in Cologne, Germany. Leveraging Stratasys’ unique triple-jetting technology, the Objet260 Dental Selection raises the bar in 3D printed dental model realism to improve the accuracy and efficacy of digital dentistry.

The versatile new 3D printer is designed to help mid- to large- sized dental and orthodontic labs grow their business by producing realistic models with true-to-life look and feel as part of their end-to-end digital dentistry workflow, including intra-oral scanners. Its ability to build diverse models with multiple materials on one tray, in one print job, increases productivity which can further improve profitability.

“We are using the Objet260 Dental Selection 3D Printer to produce realistic 3D printed gingiva masks and models we couldn’t do before. We have not had 3D printed dental models that so closely resemble the actual teeth and gums,” said Stefan Remplbauer, general manager of Austria-based 3DMedicalPrint. “The initial reactions from our customers, which include dental technicians, dentists and surgeons, have been extremely positive. This is definitely going to help set 3DMedicalPrint apart from our competitors.”

Unprecedented true-to-life dental model realism

Pivotal to the capabilities of the Objet260 Dental Selection is the ability to enable dental and orthodontic labs to enjoy unprecedented realism of the stone models. This permits the production of life-like gum textures for precise functional testing, as well as a wide range of shades for customized, color matching.

The Objet260 Dental Selection 3D Printer is compatible with all PolyJet dental materials, plus an array of dental-specific material palettes to produce life-like colors and textures for teeth and gums. This allows users to serve a broader range of dental applications with a single system, reducing equipment costs. These usages span implant testing with stone models that mimic the look and feel of real gingiva for accurate functional evaluation, as well as models with rigid features that require gum-like materials. Labs can print surgical guides directly from CBCT scan data, with high-definition tooth, root and nerve-canal anatomy rendered in contrasting materials to help prevent dental nerve injury.

“With the introduction of the Objet260 Dental Selection, Stratasys is closing the loop in digital dentistry by providing a 3D printer that can take the color digital file resulting from the intra- oral scanner and transform it into a color, multi-texture dental model. This directly contributes to better accuracy for the dental practitioners and better understanding for the patients,” said Avi Cohen, Director of Global Dental at Stratasys. “For any dental or orthodontic lab looking for a competitive edge today and tomorrow, the Objet260 Dental Selection should be at the top of their list.”

For more information about the Objet260 Dental Selection 3D Printer, contact a reseller or visit Stratasys’ website. Images, brochure, and a spec sheet are available by visiting the Stratasys newsroom.

Stratasys Ltd. (Nasdaq:SSYS), headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota and Rehovot, Israel, is a leading global provider of 3D printing and additive manufacturing solutions. The company’s patented FDM® and PolyJet™ 3D Printing technologies produce prototypes and manufactured goods directly from 3D CAD files or other 3D content.

Hong Kong Hitachi Group Holds 50th Anniversary Commemorative Ceremony

HONG KONG, Dec. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Hitachi, Ltd. (TSE:6501, “Hitachi”) today announced that Hitachi Group holds a “Hong Kong Hitachi Group 50th Anniversary Commemorative Ceremony”.

Emerging Technologies Enable Smarter Monitoring of Assets, Push Industrial Testing, Inspection and Monitoring Market

– Mechanical testing driven by supporting Mega Trends in consumer electronics, big data and beyond-BRIC markets, finds Frost & Sullivan

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Dec. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Increased emphasis on product quality, reliability and safety has boosted investments in new testing and inspection technologies. The convergence of industries and products has also given rise to a range of innovative test solutions. This trend is further driven by the requirements of Generation Y, which is generally more inclined towards communication, media and digital technologies. As a result, product development strategies of test equipment vendors will cater to their needs, aiming incorporate emerging technologies like touch-screens, intuitive software, and even interactive voice response.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan, Impact of Mega Trends on the Mechanical Test Market, identifies and understands how key Mega Trends such as big data, emerging economies beyond BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India and China), and the rise of Gen Y will influence the mechanical test market in the years to come. The study covers nondestructive testing (NDT), condition monitoring, dimensional metrology and material testing.

For complimentary access to more information on this research, please visit: http://bit.ly/1w3EFse.

New infrastructure projects in markets beyond BRIC will be the biggest driver for capital expenditure-based industrial inspection and monitoring solutions. Potential game-changing countries include Indonesia, Turkey, the Middle East, and Africa. Markets will also see wide-scale adoption of big data platforms that enable continuous monitoring of critical and non-critical assets to maximize productivity and prevent costly shutdowns.

“Productivity trends in the consumer electronics industry, such as enhanced processing power, expanded memory, display technologies, lithium-ion batteries, and a shift toward touch-based devices, will directly impact tomorrow’s mechanical test equipment,” said Frost & Sullivan Measurement and Instrumentation Program Manager Vijay Mathew. “Equipment vendors are increasingly integrating these features into their devices as technologies continue to converge and solutions become more interactive, portable, connected and easy to navigate.”

Lack of skilled technicians and an aging workforce is a key challenge in the mechanical test industry. Though well-publicized infrastructure failures, aging infrastructures and growing investments in new infrastructure projects have incrementally increased demand for new technicians, the supply shortage continues. Coupled with shrinking budgets, end-user industries are compelled to outsource maintenance and inspection services.

“With buzzwords such as Industry 4.0, smart factories and smart manufacturing gaining interest, end users look to move away from traditional testing and inspection technologies and opt for automated solutions that can be integrated with modern production lines,” observed Mathew. “Inclusion of cloud-based software and networked systems and interfaces will also be crucial to meet the requirements of Industry 4.0.”

Impact of Mega Trends on the Mechanical Test Market is part of the Test & Measurement Growth Partnership Service program. Frost & Sullivan’s related studies include: Alternative Energy and NDT: Impact of Shale Gas and Oil Sands on the NDT Inspection Services Market, Beyond BRIC Opportunities for NDT Inspection Services Market: Middle East and North Africa, Current and New Opportunities for Metrology in the Automotive Industry, Analysis of the Emerging and Nontraditional Nondestructive Testing Equipment Market and World Material Testing Equipment Market. All studies included in subscriptions provide detailed market opportunities and industry trends evaluated following extensive interviews with market participants.
