AVINENT acquires advanced Stratasys J750 3D printer

Hyperrealistic organ models headed for Spanish hospitals

AVINENT Digital Health has recently acquired the Stratasys J750 3D printer, a powerful device in the field of 3D printing that stands out from the crowd in terms of its technology for its ability to reproduce the most realistic models.

Considered to be the most advanced and versatile printer on the market, the Stratasys J750 can create pieces of up to 365,000 different color shades, with transparencies and made from a variety of liquid resins that help to obtain a wide range of textured finishes.

The new AVINENT printer is primarily used for orders from health centers and hospitals requesting organ models so that medical professionals can use them to perform simulated surgeries. AVINENT Digital Health is the only medical sector company in Spain that can currently offer the capabilities of the Stratasys J750 printer.

This innovative device has the ability to reproduce organs in a hyper-realistic manner thanks to its PolyJet technology, which allows it to work with up to six different components.

“Unlike other 3D printers on the market, [the J750] allows you to inject up to six liquid resins with different properties that are UV cured,” said AVINENT Product Manager Albert Mangas. This feature enables the creation of different color and texture pieces based on tomographic images previously taken in medical centers and, in the case of AVINENT, to manufacture exceptionally realistic organ models used in surgery simulations. Surgeons can therefore assess and study each case more reliably and accurately with a printed model.

Albert Mangas contiued: “Although we are still in a development phase in which we are trying to come as close as possible to what the final product will be, it is also indeed true that we already have some completed items today that we are printing for hospitals.”

The addition of the new Stratasys J750 printer means that AVINENT Digital Health now has up to nine different 3D printing devices available in its 3D Printing Zone, a number that demonstrates the company’s strong commitment to digital solutions. These are based on seven different technologies, used for both small-scale and industrial purposes. These range from the Formiga P110 printer (use for surgical guides for CMF surgeries) to the Form 2 by Formlabs, of which AVINENT has several models in its facilities and distributes in medical centers.
