Under this agreement BEGO will exclusively market and sell, under its own label, a special purpose high-speed Nexa3D dental printer that will be solely manufactured by XYZprinting. BEGO will also market and sell other XYZprinting products under its label all supplied with BEGO's most advanced digital materials. Nexa3D will exclusively develop the required technology and products for this partnership.
"This comprehensive three-way strategic alliance is designed to accelerate dental market access to affordable industrial grade 3D printing solutions globally," said XYZprinting CEO, Simon Shen. "We believe that cutting-edge digital materials coupled with precision, speed and top quality manufactured products are the name of the game in the world of digital dentistry. We are honored to be part of such a powerful alliance with BEGO and Nexa3D and to together transform digital dentistry as we know it."
"For over decades BEGO has been pioneering digital dentistry through our leading digital materials, our expertise in dental fabrication techniques, print services and more recently our very own 3D printer Varseo, that has already become an industry favorite," said BEGO's Managing Partner, Christoph Weiss. "Today we are taking another significant step towards making professional dental printing affordable and fast thanks to this important partnership with complementary expertise and technologies."
"This powerful three-way partnership is sure to change the face of digital dentistry as we know it," said Nexa3D executive Chairman, Avi Reichental. "The BEGO 3D printers that we will jointly bring to market are powered by Nexa3D's proprietary Lubricant Sublayer Photo-curing (LSPc) technology and a patented structured light matrix capable of reaching top speeds of 1 cm per minute. This can drastically cut down 3D printing cycles, from hours to minutes literally transforming the cycle and economics for the dental industry."
The three partner companies expect to achieve full commercial status during the second half of 2018.
