3Shape is unveiling several new solutions for dental laboratories this week at the International Dental Show, (IDS) in Cologne, Germany.
The new solutions include upgraded versions of its dental lab scanners, two new lab scanners and the latest release of its industry-leading CAD software solution, Dental System 2015.
Highlights of the releases include upward of 30% faster scanning speeds and greater accuracy for the benchtop scanners, as well as new indications, tools and third party integrations for its software.
“Our new CAD/CAM solutions demonstrate 3Shape’s commitment to providing dental labs with more opportunities to grow their product portfolios and serve more customers,” said Flemming Thorup, president & CEO at 3Shape.
The new versions of the D-series benchtop scanner are the D750 and D850, which are major upgrades of the former D700 and D800 scanner models. The two, along with the presently available D900L, now feature a new technology platform combined with a larger interior space and blue LED for reduced scan noise.
In addition, the D750, D850 and D900L also include a three year subscription to 3Shape LABcare. The three year LABcare bundle features free yearly software updates, product training and service. The subscription offer is valid up until September 30, 2015. The D-series also contains the D500 lab scanner and includes a cost-effective option to extend the LABcare package to three years.
3Shape also introduced two new lab scanners, the D2000 and D1000, two weeks ago at the Midwinter Meeting in Chicago. The two lab scanners are equipped with four 5.0 MP cameras and high-quality mechanics to improve scanning accuracy and the aforementioned new multi-line technology for increased scanning speeds.
All-in-One scanning and the D2000’s large interior space enable dental technicians to capture both the upper and lower models, inserted dies and occlusion information in a single scan. The technology also enables the D2000 scanner to “see” around dies in the model so that there is no need in most cases to remove dies during scanning.
Additionally, 3Shape Auto-Occlusion Technology makes the taking of a separate bite scan unnecessay. Auto-Occlusion Technology merges the previously simultaneously-scanned models within the software to create a correct bite.
3Shape Dental System 2015 introduces several new dental sculpting tools including full digital workflows for creating dentures, a simplified order form, boosted scanning speeds, and more restorative component libraries and compatibility integrations with third party dental product-makers.
