PolyJet Technology Opens New Doors for Surgical Implant 3D
Surgical Implant 3D has always aspired to use the latest technologies and devices to manufacture dental solutions, more specifically surgical guides, for its patients. However, only a few specialist manufacturers make surgical guides, limiting the options for outsourcing their production. These companies use Stereolithography (SLA), a 3D printing technology, to make the guides, which presents problems.
“The SLA parts we outsourced offered a significantly inferior level of resolution than the optical scanner we used to deliver a detailed scan of the patient’s mouth,” Nicolas Jager, Surgical Implant 3D Founding Partner, explains.
3D printing allows Surgical Implant 3D to bring digital designs to life with precision and accuracy.
“Since we began leveraging Stratasys 3D printing technology, we’ve experienced faster turnarounds, better capabilities and a vibrant, growing business.”
