Surface quality, speed, and ease of use help Objet Eden260V 3D Printer take top spot second year in a row
Stratasys, Ltd. (NASDAQ: SSYS), a manufacturer of 3D printers and materials for personal use, prototyping and production, today announced that the Objet Eden260V 3D Printer has won the 2014 Product Award for Top Innovative Equipment from The Dental Advisor magazine. The Objet Eden260V 3D Printer was the only rapid prototyping platform honored in the magazine's annual "Product Award" list for the second year in a row. The magazine sited the system's outstanding surface detail, easy management and maintenance, high resolution in all axes, and high speed in high quality 3D printing modes as reasons for its selection.
"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," said Avi Cohen, Director of Global Dental, Stratasys. "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."
We believe that 3D printing is one of the key factors driving the new digital era in dentistry. By combining oral scanning, CAD/CAM design and 3D printing, dental labs can accurately and rapidly produce dental stone models, and a range of orthodontic appliances for dental offices. The Objet Eden260V 3D Printer can provide dental labs with an ideal platform for a digitized workflow, enabling more efficient and cost effective production without the need for costly expansion of staff and facilities.
The Dental Advisor product awards are chosen through lengthy discussions, voting, and agreement from the publication's prestigious Editorial Board, which consists of respected dental professionals with experience in all areas of clinical dentistry, as well as dental research.
This most recent recognition joins a growing list of awards earned by the Stratasys Objet-line of Dental 3D Printers, including the Dental Advisor 2013 Top Innovative Equipment Award, and the Dental Labs Products 2011 Readers Choice Award.
