PRECISE Group and MAPTEC collaborate to bring latest 3D printing and scanning technology to the Middle East Dental Industry
With the opening of the annual UAE International Dental Conference and Arab Dental Exhibition (AEEDC) 5-7 February 2013 in Dubai, highlighting continuing education, innovation, science and technology in the field of dentistry, the influence, impact and reach of the growing 3D printing industry is once again highlighted.
As industry leaders spearheading innovation in 3D printing service solutions in the GCC, PRECISE has entered into a collaborative agreement with Dubai-based MAPTEC, engineering specialists providing cutting edge 3D printers and scanners in the region, to develop and promote the growing potential for the new generation 3D technology. One of these exciting and innovative solutions is in improving processes and function in dental clinics and laboratories.
Intra-oral mapping technology is one of the most exciting developing areas in dentistry with three-dimensional scanning of the mouth available for a large number of restorative and orthodontic procedures. The new technology removes the need for traditional impression and fabrication processes, transferring it all to a digital environment.
With MAPTEC delivering the 3D printers and scanners, PRECISE offers a centralized 3D printing solutions service for dental labs, removing the investment required by each individual lab, thus allowing everyone to embrace the technology already popular with many dental practitioners.
With the digital scanner in the dental practice offering patients clean, accurate 3D scanning for the building of models previously constructed using gypsum, PRECISE is able to offer the dental laboratory a cost effective centralized printing service for the production of the digital dental models.
MAPTEC’s mission is to provide the local GCC market with optimum solutions to enable content-to-print work flow in the 3D digital world, opening up the accessibility of the constantly developing 3D technology to all.
PRECISE continues to develop 3D printing services and solutions to cater for growing demand in a number of fields such as architecture, medical and soon even jewelry. Investing considerable time in R&D, PRECISE anticipates being able to offer previously unseen 3D printing solutions for a wide range of unique applications in the near future.
