Simply put, Straumann Group will leverage its expertise in dentistry to develop new applications with XJET’s Carmel 1400 AM System in dental care. It should be noted that Straumann is one of the first companies that invest in XJET’s NPJ technology.
The Switzerland-based company develops, manufactures, and supplies dental implants, instruments, biomaterials, CADCAM prosthetics, digital equipment, software, and clear aligners for applications in replacement, restorative, orthodontic and preventive dentistry.
Covid-19 or not, the specialist of dental care has been continuously using its XJET AM technology, a system that is utilized for the accuracy of parts it is able to deliver, its shorter production cycles and a soluble support material designed to ease the post-processing stage.
“We’ve been working with XJet NanoParticle Jetting technology for some time, up to now it has been used for developing product iterations and providing proof of concept,” says Straumann VP Stephan Oehler, “Now we’re scoring the first product development project to reach the next level of bringing this technology to production of ceramic end-use parts. We believe this technology can scale-up for production effectively, there’s a large print bed and with the soluble support material we find post-processing simple and efficient.”
“There’s already a demand for the ceramic parts produced on the Carmel 1400, and social distancing is viable because operation of the system is very simple, so we’ve been able to keep the system running even through the global pandemic,” continues Oehler.
As far as XJET is concerned, the announcement of this new partnership is another example that demonstrates the capabilities of the Israeli company’s technology in medical applications.
“Working with them to move into production parts is hugely motivating and we’re delighted to see our partnership go from strength to strength,” enthuses XJet CBO Dror Danai.
