Taiwan’s XYZPrinting is one of the runaway success stories in the 3D printing industry. At this years formnext, the company demonstrated an ever-growing portfolio of additive manufacturing technologies – a market that the New Kinpo Group subsidiary only entered in 2013.
XYZprinting launched 5 new 3D printers at the Frankfurt event last week and recently announced partnerships with DWS, Nexa3D and Sicnova.
To this list another partnership can be added, this time between XYZPrinting, Nexa3D and BEGO.
The deal will see BEGO selling Nexa3D’s dental 3D printer. Nexa3D executive Chairman, Avi Reichental, explains, “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.”
XYZPrinting will become the sole manufacturer of the Nexa3D dental printer. While BEGO will also market and sell other XYZPrinting products under its label.
Transforming digital dentistry
“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.”
BEGO is a global provider of digital and traditional dental materials, devices, services and 3D printing solutions. In 2013, Renishaw signed a licensing agreement with the German company BEGO. Speaking at the time of the deal a Renishaw spokesperson said the license would give “our customers access to important patents from BEGO which is a leader in this field.”
On the latest news, BEGO’s Managing Partner, Christoph Weiss commented, “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.”
“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.”
More news coming soon…
The news comes at time when Nexa3D executive Chairman, Avi Reichental, is renewing activity in the 3D printing industry. In April this year, the former President, CEO and Director of 3D Systems took a position as Vice-Chairman of the Board and CEO of Techniplas Digital. Reichental is also on the Board of Directors at 3D printed company electronics enterprise Nano Dimension. A number of off-the-record conversations during formnext indicate that further announcements about the seasoned 3D printing professional will be coming up soon.
