Formlabs releases Dental LT Clear, the first long-term biocompatible resin in desktop 3D printing for orthodontic applications and for orthodontic devices. The company also further strengthens its Dental SG, reducing print speeds for surgical guides by up to 50 percent.
This offering follows the launch of its products Fuse 1 and Form Cell, a few months ago; a way of recalling its position as innovator on the market.
New desktop 3D printing applications power company’s rapid growth in digital dentistry.
Already active in education, jewelry and research, Formlabs also brings its innovations in digital dentistry. Furthermore, dentistry is a sector of activity where innovations related to 3D printing are greater than in other sectors.
The company has been able to take advantage of this opportunity since it already partners with 3Shape and Henry Schein.
“Since entering the dental market in 2016, Formlabs has quickly established itself as the premier player in dental 3D printing,” said Dávid Lakatos, Chief Product Officer at Formlabs.
“We now command the largest dental 3D printer user base, have sold thousands of printers to dental professionals, and are growing at a pace of over 600 percent year on year. All of this has catalyzed an industry-wide shift to 3D printing and digital dentistry.”
The fastest Formlabs material to-date, Dental LT Clear can be used to print splints and retainers in less than 50 minutes for a single unit. Full build platforms, with up to seven splints, can be completed in under two hours.
With the latest PreForm software update, Form 2 3D printer users can also benefit from speed improvements in Formlabs’ Dental SG Resin. Single surgical guide prints will now be 50 percent percent faster, while full builds benefit from a 20 percent percent speed boost.
“Over 50,000 surgeries have been performed with a Formlabs printed surgical guide—and that’s just 10 percent of what dental users are doing with our printers”, Gideon Balloch, Dental Product Lead at Formlabs affirms.
It is already possible to get a free sample of Formlabs’ Dental LT Clear or Dental SG material.
