Objet to Showcase 3D Printing Solutions for Dental Labs at DENTASA – South African Dental Summit

3D Printing Solutions to demonstrate benefits of Digital Dentistry for Dental Labs

Rehovot, Israel, May 29, 2012 Objet Ltd., the innovation leader in 3D printing for rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing today announced it will take part in DENTASA, the annual summit of the Dental Technology Association of South Africa. The summit, including an exhibition day, will take place May 31 - June 2 in the Elangeni Hotel, Durban. The Objet exhibit will be run by Objet's local partner, Demaplastech Rapid Prototyping PTY Ltd. 

Avi Cohen, Head of Medical Solutions at Objet, will present a lecture on new technologies in fixed and removable prosthetics. Dental laboratory owners will learn how they can harness the latest 3D printing technologies to control the entire dental process from initial design to the final manufacture of dental parts, all under one roof. 
Digital dentistry is rapidly becoming the standard production tool for dental laboratories, with its ability to cut production times, increase efficiency and accuracy, and propel new business growth. "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," said Avi Cohen, Head of Medical Solutions at Objet. "With a 3D Printing Solution rapidly producing high-precision, accurate parts, turnaround times are significantly improved, positively impacting business growth potential.”
