Editor’s intro: For high-speed printing of surgical guides and dental models, Planmeca Creo™ C5 guides clinicians through every step to reach the optimal resolution — read about this high-speed 3D printer that can lead to better patient care.
Many 3D printers being used in dental offices today were originally made for other uses by designers who had little to no experience or background in the dental industry. Planmeca has been a dental manufacturer for over 45 years with numerous digital workflows. Stepping into the additive 3D-printing market was a natural progression.
Planmeca Creo™ C5 is a high-speed 3D printer to help you complete your digital workflow. Planmeca Creo C5 is custom-engineered for dental professionals and specified for use in high-speed printing of surgical guides and dental models. Planmeca Creo C5 uses LCD Photomask Technology to create a uniform layer of light that virtually eliminates imperfections when printing. LCD technology is more accurate and has a faster build speed than other Digital Light Projection (DLP) systems making Planmeca Creo C5 one of the fastest 3D printers currently on the market. Planmeca Creo C5 delivers extraordinary precision and impeccable resolution under 50 microns. The capabilities of this revolutionary high-speed printer include a surgical guide or a dental model in less than 15 minutes, and printing up to five full arches in one print.
