Nexa3D, maker of polymer production 3D printers, and Keystone Industries, dental manufacturer of biocompatible photopolymer resins, announce a collaboration to make all Keystone KeyPrint 3D printing dental resins available worldwide on Nexa3D’s ultrafast NXE 400 3D printers. Under this agreement, both companies will combine their extensive dental, photopolymer and 3D printing capabilities to deliver productivity, precision and performance 3D printing solutions to the dental market.
This new combination comes with Keystone’s FDA-cleared night guard resin, KeySplint Soft and KeyModel Ultra, a material for next-gen dental and orthodontic models along with the rest of Keystone’s laboratory and medical device printing materials, including KeyTray and KeyGuide. All Keystone precision dental resins are manufactured in the USA, and available immediately through Nexa3D’s expanding global channels.
“During our extensive internal optimization and validation testing, we confirmed that the NXE 400 produces outstanding quality prints at high volumes, making it an ideal additive manufacturing partner for the dental industry,” says Keystone Dental President Ira Rosenau.
Nexa3D’s NXE 400 3D printer features LSPc technology that combines build volume, print uniformity, advanced process algorithms, modular design for onsite automation and intelligent optimization, the company says. Offering a 16-liter build volume and productivity gains, the NXE 400 printer yields part-throughput gains while offering low cost of ownership in its class on the market, the company says. Nexa3D enters the dental market with all of Keystone’s KeyPrint resins, including KeySplint Soft, a material that delivers a combination of the strength needed to protect teeth with the added flexibility for improved patient comfort, with a transparent, aesthetic appearance.
“At Nexa3D, we are committed to advancing 3D printing performance and productivity through internal innovations and external collaborations,” says said Avi Reichental, co-founder, chairman and CEO, Nexa3D.
Every NXE400 3D printer comes with accelerated part-to-print capabilities, including fully integrated build setup and print management software that can prepare part files for printing quickly. The printer is also fully interoperable with leading digital dental workflows and providers.
Both the NXE400 3D printer and KeyPrint resins are available for purchase now.
