    Fast forward to design

    Open design
    Open design
    We’ve considered every small detail. Placement of models is intuitive and fast thanks to the open scanner design and magnetic place-and-scan system. And auto-start ensures scanning begins as soon as your models are in place.
    Scanner tools
    Scanner tools
    We’ve introduced new scanner tools such as a height adapter, articulator plate and a new impression fixture, that open up new workflow efficiency possibilities. But we will of course also continue to support most older tools.
    Share between stations
    Share between stations
    For many labs, it’s cost effective to share a scanner. Therefore, we’ve simplified scanner sharing options between workstations through the open design and ethernet.
    Flexible workflows

    This scanner goes far beyond the crown & bridge or implant bar. From upper/lower, die-in-model, articulator and impressions, what you can achieve is virtually limitless.
