NTT DATA Selects Nexxiot as IoT Solution Provider

for Connected Product

DALLAS, TX, Sep 30, 2022 – Nexxiot, the global TradeTech pioneer, has been selected by NTT DATA as the preferred IoT solution provider for Connected Product, a global cargo tracking solution jointly developed by NTT DATA and SAP to improve insurance management for global supply chains. Nexxiot’s Cargo Monitor, a revolutionary IoT sensor device that delivers unbeatable connectivity and data performance in a compact, easy-to-use design, has been chosen by NTT DATA to provide monitoring and tracking of shipping containers for the Connected Product solution. NTT DATA plans to deploy more than 600,000 of Nexxiot’s Cargo Monitor devices over the next five years.

Nexxiot’s Cargo Monitor

“Nexxiot is pleased to partner with NTT DATA on their groundbreaking Connected Product solution,” said Stefan Kalmund, CEO of Nexxiot. “By connecting real-time monitoring with automated cargo insurance payments, this initiative clearly demonstrates yet another benefit of the TradeTech revolution. The digitalization of cargo not only creates enhanced visibility and transparency; the sky is the limit in terms of the value Nexxiot’s IoT technology can create for all players in the global value network.”

As the global value chain becomes increasingly complex and is threatened by numerous sources of disruption, cargo losses due to inadequate shipping conditions are a growing problem. Pinpointing the cause of damages to cargo in transit is almost impossible without real-time data on the location, status and environmental conditions of goods in transit.

NTT DATA and SAP’s Connected Product, powered by SAP Business Network for Logistics, seeks to solve this challenge by connecting the solution to IoT devices to  monitor fragile and environmentally sensitive cargo. Nexxiot has been chosen by NTT DATA as the preferred IoT solution provider for Connected Product. By enabling end-to-end, real-time monitoring of transportation conditions, the Nexxiot Cargo Monitor tracks variables that could affect a shipment. The collected data can be configured through Connected Product to automatically trigger and execute insurance policies if goods are not transported under certain pre-defined conditions.

“Our shared vision is to create a new era of digitally connected value chain solutions,” said Xavier Rovira, global head of SAP Unit at NTT DATA EMEAL, NTT DATA. “Nexxiot’s Cargo Monitors are a critical piece of our effort to increase visibility, reduce supply chain disruptions and support a smarter and more sustainable world.”

Nexxiot’s Cargo Monitors were selected by NTT DATA after an extensive pilot program. The Connected Product pilot program, which utilized 500 Nexxiot Cargo Monitors, tracked 400 live shipments which were delivered in Europe, Asia and the U.S. from March to August 2022. Throughout the course of the pilot, the shipments were monitored along more than 5 million kilometers of their journeys and more than 200,000 data points were collected for analysis.

Nexa3D Announces NXD 200Pro Dental 3D Printer

VENTURA, CA, Sep 30, 2022 – Nexa3D, the maker of ultrafast polymer 3D printers for industrial and dental applications, announced the immediate availability of its new Professional Series upgrade for its NXD 200 dental 3D printer. Based on Nexa3D’s ultrafast LSPc technology, the Pro Series delivers higher productivity and model accuracy with greater print success. The Pro Series opens the materials aperture to accommodate a broader range of dental materials, including KeyOrtho IBT and KeySplint Hard, both manufactured by Keystone Industries.

The company plans to showcase the new NXD 200Pro printer at Lab Day East, the largest dental laboratory event in the Northeast, taking place on Oct 1, 2022 in Tarrytown, NY. The company will highlight the power of increased throughput, expanded dental resin portfolio, and higher production yields made possible by the latest Pro Series release.

“We are thrilled to release this significant upgrade to our NXD 200 Dental 3D printer,” said Jim Zarzour, head of dental solutions at Nexa3D. “We recognize the pressing need for higher productivity and lower operating costs that dental labs are faced with, and that is exactly why we enhanced the NXD 200 printer in order to deliver even better throughput with greater reliability, accuracy and repeatability. Additionally, the new Pro Series opens the materials portfolio of the NXD platform to accommodate new dental materials that are tailored for ultrafast printing of dental parts.

The NXD 200Pro is an industry-leading production platform for same-day production of orthodontic models, surgical guides, splints, impression trays, and nightguards. The printer is powered by the company’s proprietary Lubricant Sublayer Photo-curing (LSPc) technology and patented structured light matrix that delivers up to 20x productivity gains over other SLA and DLP 3D printers. It’s the ideal solution for high throughput dental lab applications given its large 8.5L build volume measuring 275 x 155 x 200mm (10.8 x 6.1 x 7.8 inch).

Designed specifically for dental labs, the NXD 200Pro offers world-class dental model manufacturing capabilities at ultrafast speeds with validated Keystone performance dental resins. The NXD 200Pro offers high throughput to keep dental operations productive, capable of producing up to 20 flat 3D-printed dental models in less than 30 minutes. “At Key Dental Technologies, precision and high quality define our aligners, MyClearALIGN!, and Nexa3D’s dental 3D printing solutions enable us to deliver our product with incredible speed, high definition, and affordability,” said Christina Montiel, Laboratory Technician at Key Dental Technologies.

Nexa3D’s growing dental customer base includes large and small dental laboratories as well as dental practices looking to increase their 3D printing throughput with ease and affordability. “At Excel Orthodontics, our priority is providing exceptional orthodontic laboratory services, and Nexa3D’s LSPc technology with the NXD 200Pro enables us to deliver those services with accuracy, affordability, and twice the throughput of our previous 3D printing solution,” said Tyler Dowdle, director of operations at Excel Orthodontics.
