Glidewell Laboratories, has announced its latest collaboration with Objet Geometries Ltd. Objet provided Glidewell with the ability to manufacturer custom printed models and other precision dental parts using Objet’s Eden 3-D Printing Systems.

Objet’s printed parts were tested and evaluated by Glidewell Laboratories. After testing by Glidewell’s 66-person R&D team, the printed parts for production were approved and qualified.

  “Objet is delighted that a leading U.S. dental laboratory such as Glidewell Laboratories has chosen Objet’s dental solution to improve its manufacturing processes,” says Avi Cohen, head of Medical Solutions at Objet. “We both believe that, in order to redefine the dental laboratory industry, we must implement the leading 3D printing technology to provide highly accurate and excellent quality models and parts at an affordable cost.”

Objet’s 3D printing solution allows dentists and dental laboratories to electronically submit their cases to Glidewell Laboratories,  and the patterns and models are designed and printed. This new process also reduces shipping costs and improves turnaround time, according to the company.
