On September the 15th, 2022, Desktop Health® announced a new partnership with Keystone® Industries to make a broad range of Keystone 3D printing dental resins available on the Einstein 3D printers. Desktop Health is a healthcare business within Desktop Metal, and Keystone Industries is a trusted dental manufacturer of biocompatible, cutting-edge, patented photopolymer resins.
KeySplint Soft is an FDA-510(k) cleared 3D printing resin for fabricating 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 the highest productivity, precision and performance 3D printing solutions to the dental market. The companies will continue collaborating 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,” noted Ira Rosenau, president of Keystone’s dental division. “Desktop Health and its Einstein 3D printer fits 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.”
