Voco Releases New 3D Printer

INDIAN LAND, S.C.—Voco’s compact desktop dental 3D printer, SolFlex 170, was custom-engineered for the dental office and offers higher printing speeds, more accuracy and the ability to print clear orthodontic appliances.

One of SolFlex 170’s various innovations is sensor monitored production (SMP). An optional built-in laser sensor measures the peeling forces to optimize the building speed. This increase process efficiency and reliability, reduces print times by as much as 40 percent and reduces material-consuming misprints. 

With a wavelength of 385nm, the SolFlex printers can print in the invisible spectrum of light, allowing for the production of truly clear ortho appliances without the yellow tint, which can be a byproduct of SLA or DLP printers that print using a wavelength of 405nm. The use of DLP (digital light processing) technology is faster and has a higher resolution than SLA printers, which is particularly useful for high-precision objects like crown and bridge models or surgical guides.

SolFlex 170 uses Voco’s patented Flex-Vat technology. The Flex-Vat build tray is flexible and made from one piece of high-tech silicone. This significantly reduces the peeling forces during manufacturing, enabling the printer to work much more quickly while reducing the number of required support structures and reducing post-processing time and material used.
