Objet is set to unveil its 3D Printing Solutions for dental laboratories at the annual summit of DENTASA held between 31 May-2 June 2012 in Durban, South Africa.

The exhibition facilitates dental laboratory owners to learn how to harness the new 3D printing technologies and control the entire dental process from initial design to the final manufacture of dental parts.

Objet medical solutions head Avi Cohen said by combining oral scanning, CAD/CAM design and 3D printing, South African dental professionals can produce a range of dental and orthodontic appliances faster and more accurately.

"With a 3D Printing Solution rapidly producing high-precision, accurate parts, turnaround times are significantly improved, positively impacting business growth potential," Cohen added.
