Stratasys Ltd. introduced the highest precision wax 3D printers available to the dental industry. CrownWorx and FrameWorx 3D Printers allow dental laboratories to produce wax-ups for crowns, bridges and denture frameworks and use wax deposition modeling technology, a jetting technology that is designed to enable consistent quality and a reliable process. The machines produce superior-fitting wax-ups for crown, bridge, coping and denture frameworks via an automated method that can fit easily into a lab’s established workflow, enhancing production capacity. The CrownWorx and FrameWorx 3D Printers use wax-like materials that produce smooth surface finishes and minimize post-processing. The materials burn-out with no residue, material shrinkage, cracking or expansion to allow precision casting and reduce costs previously incurred when finishing gold and other precious metals. Based on resolution, the CrownWorx 3D Printer is best-in-class for creating crown, bridge, and coping wax-ups. CrownWorx uses WDM Technology to jet micro-drops of TrueCast material that builds dental wax-ups, layer-by-layer. The FrameWorx 3D Printer uses WDM Technology to jet micro-drops of TrueCast material onto the build tray to create a denture wax-up layer-by-layer. TrueSupport material is quickly sprayed around the casting material to form a support structure. This enhancement increases production speed for partial denture wax-ups because they require more support material than crowns and bridges. After printing, TrueSupport is dissolved, leaving behind smooth and detailed wax-ups.
TrueCast is a firm but flexible material that mimics real wax and allows labs to 3D print any dental wax-up with extreme accuracy. It is 100 percent castable for any alloy. TrueSupport is a true wax-blend material that is automatically generated to protect a wax-up during printing. It has a low melting point that produces delicate restorations and is easily removed from each wax-up, after production.
Par ailleurs, Solidscape, filiale de Stratasys, annonce la disponibilité de la MAX², une imprimante 3D de haute précision pour la fabrication de modèles en cire. Machine la plus rapide de la gamme 3Z, elle est dotée de la technologie SCP (Smooth Curvature Printing, une fonction d’interpolation de courbes complexes). La MAX² offre de nouvelles capacités sur les trois marchés : la haute joaillerie et les applications médicales et industrielles.
