SOL Plus

The SOL Plus, a state-of-the-art dental 3D printer, hopes to redefine high-volume precision printing, while the Tank Plus Kit complements the CLEANI dual tank wash system, designed to cater to the demands of advanced dental workflows. The SOL Plus boasts an impressive large platform, capable of printing up to 28 full arches in a single vertical print or 8 full arches printed flat, according to a press release from the company. The monochrome LCD panel has an XY resolution of 45 microns and can print layers as thin as 30 microns—indicated for intricate dental applications. Keeping true to Ackuretta's commitment to open but validated workflows, SOL Plus is already compatible with industry-leading dental resins such as Ackuretta CURO, Argen, BEGO, Keystone, Pac-Dent, VOCO, and others. Designed for user-friendly operation, the SOL Plus incorporates failsafe technology to ensure optimal printing conditions with every use and eliminate errors. The removable Thermal Agitator, a key feature in the SOL Plus, detects resin temperature in the vat, prompts users to heat the resin if necessary, and distributes heat evenly within the vat. With a rapid heating mechanism, the Thermal Agitator can elevate resin temperature by 10 degrees Fahrenheit in 2 minutes. Additional features include a build platform lock, a tilting mechanism to conserve resin, and a sensor on the SOL Plus hood ensuring the hood is closed before printing, preventing unwanted resin curing in the vat. Acknowledging the importance of customer support, SOL Plus comes with the Ackuretta Concierge Service, exclusively available in the United States and Canada. This service includes a 2-year warranty, remote onboarding, and training provided by the Ackuretta Customer Success Team, per the press release. Each customer receives personalized training, allowing them to commence 3D printing on the day the printer is unpacked. In tandem with the SOL Plus, Ackuretta introduces the Tank Plus Kit, an addition to the CLEANI dual tank wash system. This innovative accessory is tailored to match the high production volume of SOL Plus, capable of washing up to 8 full arches in each cycle. Equipped with a mesh basket to reduce contact with IPA and a hydrometer indicating IPA cleanliness, the Tank Plus ensures a thorough and efficient cleaning process.

X4 Handheld

Dental technology distributor Mid America Dental Sales has announced the launch of its new x-ray device, the X4 Handheld. This technology is designed with a Carbon Nano Tube (CNT) X-ray tube to boost efficiency all while maintaining a lightweight, 4lb build. CNT tube technology is said to be more streamlined than standard filament vacuum x-ray tubes, according to a press release from the company. Along with the CNT tube, the X4 Handheld also features a protective scatter shield that exceeds over 0.5 mm Pb (lead equivalency) for user protection, per the press release. Benefitting the practitioner, this shield ensure maximum safety. The beam itself is a fixed 70kV/2mA with a 0.4 mm focal spot. Its 4lb structure is designed to reduce arm fatigue, improving the ergonomic experience for the clinician. The x-ray is indicated for a variety of procedures, but especially useful for clinicians that perform implants or have pediatric patients or patients with more specific needs. The X4 Handheld is said to be a power-efficient device, reportedly capturing up to 800 images per a single charge. The battery is also said to be smaller than most standard batteries, contributing to the lightweight solution.

Multi-Material Jetted Monolithic Dentures

By creating a monolithic printed denture that features distinct materials for the base and the teeth, these Multi-Material Jetted Monolithic Dentures offer an optimal combination of durability and esthetics. The NextDent® Jet Denture Teeth material is strong, esthetic, and resists stains, while the NextDent® Jet Denture Base material offers high fracture toughness to create reliable, durable appliances. Designed for production-style dental laboratories, this new denture workflow saves time because each appliance is a single piece and fewer print supports are required, saving time during post-print processing. While this new solution is pending FDA 510(k) clearance, 3D Systems anticipates receiving regulatory approval in the second half of 2024.
