Desktop Health, a healthcare business within Desktop Metal, Inc. (NYSE: DM) committed to developing 3D printing solutions for personalized medicine, and Keystone Industries, a trusted dental manufacturer of biocompatible, cutting-edge, patented photopolymer resins, today announced a partnership to make a broad range of Keystone 3D printing dental resins available on Desktop Health’s Einstein printer, beginning with KeySplint Soft.
KeySplint Soft is an FDA-510(k) cleared 3D printing resin for the fabrication of 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 their collaboration 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.
