TCT Magazine reports on a recent partnership announced by Armann Girrbach and 3D Systems. Apparently, Armann Girrbach will be installing 3D Systems’ NextDent 5100 Dental 3D Printer. This device “is powered by 3D Systems’ Figure 4 technology.”
Armann Girrbach will “employ the NextDent 5100 3D printing platform into is Ceramill System digital dental workflow. The Ceramill System workflow encompasses articulation, model fabrication, scanning, CAD design, and production.” With the help of the NextDent 5100, this system will have the ability to “print precision trays, models, surgical guides, dentures, orthodontic splints, crowns, and bridges.”
This is mostly due to the NextDent 5100 Dental 3D Printer’s “portfolio of 30 biocompatible and CE-certified materials…[enabling] the production of [various applications.]” Along with the Ceramill System and the NextDent 5100, users will also be able to use 3D Spring software, “which enables the preparation of files, editing, printing, and managing” all on a single interface. Customers will hail from more than 90 countries.
As Armann Girrbach’s Head of Product Management Christian Ermer explains: “with the addition of 3D Systems’ NextDent 5100 3D printing to our Ceramill System, we can offer our customers a more feature-rich digital dental workflow that will make them more competitive and efficient…[the NextDent 5100 Dental 3D Printer helps to] lower production costs and reduce turnaround time.”
3D Systems’ Vice President and General Manager of Dental Rik Jacobs concludes: “additive manufacturing is transforming the way dental applications are planned, produce and delivered, due in large part to the wide variety of NextDent material that are regulatory approved and clinically evaluated…Amann Girrbach’s customers are getting trusted connection – a complete fast and accurate dental 3D printing solution that will work seamlessly with their existing Ceramill equipment and processes. This new partnership with Amann Girrbach is an important milestone in our strategy to redefine digital dentistry and demonstrate our ability to optimize production workflows.”
