Photocentric, inventor of LCD 3D printing, will communicate its complete aligner solution at the International Dental Show (IDS) in Cologne, Germany from 22-25 September (Hall 3.1, Stand: M011), with its products, resins, and in-house expertise delivering commercial benefits to manufacturers around the world.

Marking its global launch at the show is the LC Opus 3D printer, which is an ideal solution for dental model production, delivering speed and accuracy.

“With our rounded offering of 3D printers and resins, and our own in-house farm of 3D printers demonstrating proof of concept for additive manufacturing, including aligner model production, we have great faith in our technologies to deliver cost savings and performance benefits in this competitive and dynamic market,” says Sally Tipping, sales director, Photocentric. “We are transforming aligner production with our comprehensive solutions, and we are looking forward to meeting at the show and discussing how we can transform production processes around the world”.

The new LC Opus printer delivers speed and accuracy – with a cure speed of 2 seconds per layer at 50µm layer thickness – saving labs time and money whilst delivering high-quality results. Also at the show will be LC Magna, a tried and tested daylight printer which has been used successfully in dental aligner production to deliver speed, volume, and cost savings. There will be further details of the Photocentric range of resins tailored to the dental market, as well as multiple print platforms, dental models, and samples for both the Magna and Opus printers. Members of the Photocentric team will be on hand to discuss how its technologies can assist production for labs.

Photocentric dental aligner solutions have been deployed around the globe, and they were recently chosen by Brazilian startup company SouSmile, which uses a trio of LC Magna printers to produce its dental aligners at scale. SouSmile’s cost per part fell 30% when it internalized production with the LC Magna, which is equivalent to about US $60k in monthly savings, or the US $720k per year.
