The IMPRIMO® system now includes the Asiga MAX™ 3D printer, offering intuitive operation with fast and precise printing results. The built-in LCD panel with touch screen function provides real-time information on the building process and enables interactive control. Multiple print jobs can be stored on the internal solid-state drive and managed via touch screen or remotely via web browser. Printing jobs can be transferred over Ethernet or Wifi. In the absence of networking infrastructure, the Asiga MAX™ can operate as a wireless hot-spot for an independent production solution. Thanks to the IMPRIMO® 385 nm material range and reliable DLP technology, the Asiga MAX™ can be used in all fields of dentistry. Printing jobs can be created using the Asiga Composer software, included license-free with every system.
This product is part of SMART FLOW: the complete digital process chain optimized for orthodontic practices and laboratories, comprising products and services by SCHEU-DENTAL and CA DIGITAL.
Printing can be done continuously in layers of 1 μm thickness. Layer thicknesses of 25 μm, 50 μm, 75 μm and 100 μm have been validated. In general, each layer thickness can be realized with the accuracy of a 1 μm.
The build size is 67 mm x 75 mm x 119 mm (width x height x depth).
The Asiga MAXTM has a pixel size of 62 μm (± 31 μm) in the XY plane.
The integrated UV-LED projector is based on the DLP system (DLP = digital light processing) and has an expected service life of 10,000 hours.
No, first commissioning and basic training by certified personnel on site are required. The training is free of charge.
The printer must be connected to a computer network to submit print jobs. After transmission of print jobs, the printer operates independently.
The printer can be connected either to an Ethernet network or Wi-Fi.
Yes, it is possible to store several jobs in a queue, but each printing job must be started separately.
Support structures can be either generated automatically or placed manually. It is possible to modify the automatic support creation.
The number of objects depends on their size. Reference value: 6 dental arches or 8 splints can be printed on the platform (at a hanging position).
Once printing is completed, the objects must be removed from the model platform. Uncured resin residues are completely removed using isopropyl alcohol leaving no residue. Final curing of the objects is effected in a light oven at a wavelength of 385 nm, preferably using protective gas to avoid the creation of a dispersion layer.
The costs depend on the model size, as for small models less resin is needed than for large ones. The cost is approx. 3,50 € for a lower dental arch and 5,50 € for an upper one (reference values). The cost is based on the currently valid price list (as of 7/17).
Each print job requires a specific resin according to the requirements of the print order. A change of material is carried out by exchanging the tray and cleaning the model platform.
The trays are available with a maximum print volume of 1 l, 2 l, 5 l and 10 l. The maximum print volumes are stored in an RFID chip attached to the wall of the tray. The generated print volume is assigned to each print job. The used print volume is indicated on the display, once the print job is finished.
