3D printer manufacturer Stratasys announced that the company has won a 3D Printing Industry Award in the “Medical, Dental or Healthcare Applications” category. The company’s PolyJet-based J5 DentaJet, J5 MediJet and J850 Digital Anatomy 3D printers beat out a field of nine competitors.
Rani Hagag, Chief Health Care and Consumer Business Officer at Stratasys, commented on the win, “We are thrilled with this achievement, which acknowledges the transformation our flagship 3D printing solutions are leading in the dental and medical sectors.
Be it precision 3D printing of dental parts, producing lifelike biomechanically accurate anatomical models, or creating full-color multi-material training models, our technology provides healthcare professionals with the solutions to improve patient care and clinical outcomes,” he added.
The award underscores the importance of Stratasys’ growing portfolio of innovative 3D printers designed to solve complex problems for dental and medical professionals. The DentaJet professional series offers multi-material 3D printers that deliver greater accuracy for dental applications while increasing overall production efficiency and optimizing workflows.
For medical applications, the J5 MediJet all-in-one printer enables academic medical centers, hospitals and medical device companies to create vivid anatomical models as well as sterilizable and biocompatible drill and cutting guides with multi-material and multi-color capabilities.
The J850 Digital Anatomy 3D Printer goes one step further by enabling the creation of realistic 3D models of human anatomy that look and feel deceptively similar to real bone and tissue.
“This award reflects not just the promise of our technology but also the collaborative work we do with partners to turn this promise into reality,” continued Hagag. “We thank the judges, but we are even more grateful to the hospitals, labs, and device makers that inspire and trust us daily as we together reimagine healthcare.”
The 3D Printing Industry Award is a clear signal for the role of 3D printing in solving medical challenges and underlines the growing importance of this technology in the healthcare industry.
