Merz-Dental specializes in developing prosthetic dentures and consumables for dental practice and laboratory. As an innovation leader in acrylic materials for use in digital dentistry, Merz-Dental researches, develops, and manufactures specialized dental materials from its facilities in Lütjenburg (Schleswig-Holstein), Germany.
Merz-Dental has signed on as an authorized reseller for Nexa3D printers and will provide service and support to Nexa3D dental customers throughout Germany. The company has also initially purchased several XiP desktop 3D printers to immediately accelerate its own research and development work on new materials.
"We are thrilled to partner with a dental market leader like Merz-Dental," said Patrick Sullivan, Chief Revenue Officer at Nexa3D. "Our intention with the XiP was to offer a 3D printing platform that is open, fast, and accurate to proliferate the use of professional and denal desktop 3D printing. By adding Merz-Dental to our partner network, we're delivering on the promise to democratize access to desktop 3D printing with an ever-expanding material portfolio for specialized applications."
Launched in late 2022, the XiP has quickly become a desktop printer of choice for professional users looking to upgrade their desktop SLA and resin-based printers to larger build volume and faster print speeds, to ultimately drive higher throughput and productivity. With hundreds of units sold worldwide in just a few months, the XiP desktop 3D printer is already serving a wide variety of engineering and dental applications, including orthodontic models, splints, and surgical guides.
