BILLERICA, Mass., Feb. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Objet Geometries Ltd., the innovation leader in 3D printing for rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing, will be showcasing its advanced 3D printing solutions for digital dentistry at LMT Lab Day East, February 25-26, in Chicago, the largest international gathering of the dental laboratory community in North America.
On display at the Objet booth will be the Objet Eden260V™ 3D printer designed for digital dentistry. Also on display will be a range of dental 3D models and parts created using Objet's 3D printing solutions.
"Objet's 3D printing solutions have the potential to greatly reduce dental model fabrication times and increase output per technician," said Frank Marangell, President of Objet's US operations. "With Objet, dental labs now have the fastest 3D technology for handling digital files in-house. They can repeatedly fabricate a range of dental and orthodontic appliances, eliminate their dependence on physical impressions and provide a faster, cheaper and more accurate service to their customers."
Dental models produced on the Objet Eden260V 3D printer are durable, featuring exceptional precision, fine details and an outstanding surface finish – all necessary for ensuring the high degree of accuracy required by the dental industry.
According to Don Albensi, CEO of Albensi Dental Lab, "We have developed a process called PG-Pro™. This enables our lab to complete a restoration within 3 days of the intraoral scan. The Objet 3D printer provides an accurate and cost effective solution for completing this process and increasing profitability. It has been an integral component for completing Albensi Dental Lab's digital workflow."
"With Objet's digital dental solutions, labs owners can now scale up their business with ease and dentists can provide a better end-product with a more efficient service to patients. Labs attending this conference will be able to see first hand how Objet is benefiting organizations like Glidewell, Albensi Dental, Allure, Remedent and others," added Marangell.
Objet looks forward to hosting LMT Lab Day attendees at the Objet Booth 1009 & 1011 to experience the latest in 3D printing for digital dentistry.
