EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn., U.S./REHOVOT, Israel: On Dec. 7, Stratasys, a leader in polymer 3D-printing solutions, introduced the Stratasys Origin One Dental, the latest addition to the company’s growing portfolio of dental 3D-printing solutions. It is the second 3D printer to have resulted from Stratasys’ acquisition of Origin in December 2020, a significant development in the company’s strategy to be the market leader in polymer 3D printing for manufacturing.

The demand for dental solutions has, in recent years, experienced significant growth driven by several trends, including the digitization of dental workflows and an increased demand for esthetic dentistry. These trends, coupled with the consolidation of dental laboratories into production centers, and competitive workforce conditions are causing dental laboratories to embrace production solutions optimized for speed, quality and throughput while remaining reliable, scalable and flexible.

According to Stratasys, the Stratasys Origin One Dental and the recently introduced Stratasys J5 DentaJet 3D printer provide dental laboratories with comprehensive additive manufacturing solutions designed to meet the needs of the growing dental customer base. The Stratasys Origin One Dental is powered by a proprietary print technology called Programmable PhotoPolymerization P3 that enables industry-leading accuracy, part-to-part consistency and throughput. The printer offers an open material infrastructure that supports various applications and enables higher throughput at a lower cost per part compared with competing technologies. The printer is intended for flow production and for small batches of a single material requiring a short print time. In this way, the output of each application is maximized and the production process streamlined.

In March 2021, Stratasys launched the J5 DentaJet, the only multimaterial dental 3D printer capable of printing mixed dental parts in a single print tray without sacrificing accuracy. The printer is ideal for large batch printing, especially when printing mixed trays of parts overnight or unattended. Together, the printers aim to provide dental customers with the ability to streamline their processes while increasing production to meet the demands of the dental industry.

“Stratasys is the only additive manufacturing company that is offering multiple 3D-printing technologies to dental labs. We enable labs to scale production today and stay prepared for tomorrow,” said Osnat Philipp, vice president of healthcare for Stratasys, in a press release.

“Each printer presents an additive manufacturing solution for a different type of production need, maximized throughput and production time, while providing flexibility in addressing the changing needs of this growing market set to reach 6.5 billion dollars by 2025,” Philipp stated.
