Copenhagen, March 10th, 2015 –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 upwards 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 3Shapes commitment to providing dental labs with more opportunities to grow their product portfolios and serve more customers,” says Flemming Thorup, President & CEO at 3Shape.
3Shape scanners boost speed and performance
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.
3 years of LABcare™ included
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.
Two new D-series lab scanners released: D2000 and D1000
3Shape 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 4 x 5.0 MP cameras and high-quality mechanics to improve scanning accuracy and the aforementioned new multi-line technology for increased scanning speeds.
NEW D2000 – reduces handling time by 40%
The D2000 benchtop scanner includes several other new features like, “All-in-One” scanning and a large interior with room for two models.
All-in-One scanning and the D2000s 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. *
A process that can eliminate four out of the five workflow steps used to scan e.g., a 3-unit bridge. And reduce workflow steps to result in a handling time-savings of up to 40% for dental labs.
Additionally, 3Shape Auto-Occlusion Technology makes the taking of a separate bite scan unnecessary. Auto-Occlusion Technology merges the previously simultaneously-scanned models within the software to create a correct bite.
* An additional die scan may be required for cases with limited interproximal space between dies and neighboring teeth. All dies must be trimmed and models sectioned.
Dental System™ 2015
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.
