FIRST MODEL WITH PRINTABLE ARTICULATOR
SMALL JOINT WITH BIG IMPACTUntil now, 3D-printed jaw models were only available with a clip-fold articulator that allowed users to check the static occlusion. In contrast, the natural jaw movements could only be performed using a conventional articulator. The time and effort required for this can be saved with xSNAP. The 3D articulated system with spherical head is simply attached to the models of the upper and lower jaw and printed with them to precisely simulate physiological mandibular movements (protrusion, mediotrusion and laterotrusion).
18O° OPENINGModels with the xSNAP joint system can be opened by 180°. This makes them excellent as working models without having to separate the jaws.
ONE JOINT SYSTEM, THREE VARIATIONS
The xSNAP system is available in three different versions:
xSNAP + TDMStandard variant for full-arch models with three guideways and a range of joint path inclinations.
A NEW TYPE OF MECHANISMThe developer of the xSNAP joint system is Manuel Fricke (Digital Lab Manager at xWERK, formerly Zfx Süd GmbH). The patent and utility model application was filed in summer 2020.
