Accelerated precision for perfect polymer restorations
Developed for technicians by dental experts at Kulzer, cara Print 4.0 meets all the accuracy requirements for polymer-based dental appliances and delivers fast, precise and economical results. A validated complete workflow process can be achieved by using Kulzer dima Class II approved print materials, followed by post-curing in the HiLite Power 3D.
Dr Ulrich Koops, group product manager for Digital Fixed Prosthetics at Kulzer demonstrated cara Print 4.0 at a series of training events across the UK. The new, competitively priced 3D printer produces monochrome dental appliances, layer by layer, using a high-quality photopolymer. Digital light projection (DLP) significantly reduces build time by generating an entire layer in a single flash and this in turn greatly reduces print time.
Dr Koops explained, “cara Print 4.0 is the right choice for the effective manufacturing of dental appliances. The building volume of 103 mm x 58 mm x 130 mm gives space for not just one appliance, but allows, for example, four splints to be printed in one run of approximately 60 minutes. That equates to just 15 minutes per appliance. All dental restorations are printed with excellent precision, and the low investment compared to other universal manufacturing technologies reduces the hourly rate.”
