Desktop Health and Keystone form dental 3D printing partnership
Making a broad range of Keystone 3D printing dental resins available on Desktop Health’s Einstein printer
Desktop Health, a healthcare business within Desktop Metal committed to developing 3D printing solutions for personalized medicine, and Keystone Industries, a dental manufacturer of biocompatible, cutting-edge, patented photopolymer resins, have partnered to make a broad range of Keystone 3D printing dental resins available on Desktop Health’s Einstein printer, beginning with KeySplint Soft.
KeySplint Soft is an FDA-510(k) cleared 3D printing resin for the fabrication of flexible nightguards, dental splints, and bleaching trays. This DLP-optimized resin combines the strength needed to protect teeth with added flexibility for improved patient comfort, all with a transparent and aesthetic appearance.
Through this partnership, Desktop Health and Keystone will combine established resins with innovative print platforms to deliver some of the highest productivity, precision, and performance 3D printing solutions to the dental market. The companies will continue their collaboration to validate additional KeyPrint resins for a range of dental applications on the Einstein platform over the next several months, including KeySplint Hard, KeyOrtho IBT, KeyDenture Try-In, and KeyMask.
“We are excited to work with Keystone Industries to make market-leading and trusted third-party resins available on our breakthrough Einstein 3D printer for dental clinicians and labs,” said Ric Fulop, Founder, and CEO of Desktop Metal. “We believe this partnership will help accelerate the adoption of digital solutions in the dental industry by bringing new levels of precision and productivity to advanced materials for a range of applications.”
“Keystone Industries is committed to validating our KeyPrint line of dental resins in the most innovative and widely-adopted 3D printers for the dental market,” said Ira Rosenau, president of Keystone’s dental division. “Desktop Health and its Einstein 3D printer fit well within the scope of our premium partnerships, and we were able to quickly validate the Einstein as KeyPrint Compatible, including with our leading KeySplint Soft material for flexible night guards and splints. We are looking forward to working with the creative Desktop Health team to offer dental professionals an excellent combination of innovative resins with a reliable, high-performance platform like the Einstein.”
