ClearCorrect to build on Current Success by Scaling Digital Orthodontic 3D Printing Production Even Further

01:00 EDT Tuesday, April 30, 2013

Increasing production capacity 30% with Objet Eden 3D Printing Systems

MINNEAPOLIS, REHOVOT, Israel and HOUSTON, April 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Stratasys Ltd. (NASDAQ: SSYS), a leading manufacturer of 3D printers and production systems for prototyping and manufacturing, today announced that ClearCorrect LLC, a leading manufacturer of clear aligners has significantly scaled the number of Objet-line 3D Printing Systems it has onsite.

ClearCorrect's previous investment in the Objet-line 3D Printers has been realized several times over with increased demand, faster production and delivery to customers, and lower operational costs. ClearCorrect is building on this success now to scale the business even more, by increasing capacity another 30%. This will help ClearCorrect become more efficient and responsive in the manufacture and delivery of custom-made orthodontic aligners on a mass scale.

Jarrett Pumphrey, CEO of ClearCorrect commented: "The Objet Eden 3D Printers are pivotal to ClearCorrect in the competitive environment we operate in. Increasing revenue and substantial growth continues to be fueled by our focus on digital production, enabled by Stratasys' Objet-line 3D Printers."

The ClearCorrect transparent orthodontic aligner system offers an attractive, simple and comfortable route to straighter teeth. The manufacturing center in Houston, Texas is one of the most advanced digital production centers in the US. Production is heavily supported by a large number of Stratasys Objet Eden-line 3D Printing Systems, which helped reduce the time required for the clear braces production process.

"By adding a significant number of 3D printing systems, ClearCorrect has demonstrated its satisfaction and trust in Stratasys. The growth in efficiency improvements triggered by our 3D printers has had a remarkable effect on their bottom line", said Avi Cohen, Director of Global Dental at Stratasys. "We see this as a significant orthodontic solution that brings together two leading technologies", Cohen concluded.
