Remember, in the April issue of 3D Adept Mag, we laid emphasis on the fact that partnerships are the winning combination for 3D printing specialists and companies that are not specialized in 3D printing but that consider the integration of the technology in their activity.

This week, in digital dentistry, Carbon and National Dentex Labs (NDX), a network of dental labs, entered in a multi-year agreement to help NDX’s labs to exploit Carbon’s 3D solutions in dental labs. Carbon is not a beginner in such type of partnerships, especially in this sector of activity. In February, the manufacturer announced a collaboration with DENTCA & DREVE to foster the adoption of digital dentistry.

This time, NDX will use 3D printing technology to fabricate models, casting and a variety of implant guides. Due to the increasing demand, the labs need to ensure scalability, fleet management across the install base in disparate locations, and the ability to report data and analytics that cater to solution-based needs.

In another continent…

In Europe, KIMYA, the new brand of Armor 3D, & German RepRap will put their strengths together to offer industrial users a complete solution via a high performance 3D printer and hi-tech materials.

For those who were present at Formnext, especially on German RepRap’s booth, the x500 printer of German RepRap printed an intake manifold for a vintage car using the PEKK Carbon from Kimya. The material is printed at 360°C and offers strong mechanical and thermal properties.
