3Shape D-Series Lab Scanners Add New Scan Technology for 30% More Speed and Increased Accuracy

CHICAGO MIDWINTER BREAKING NEWS - 3Shape D-series of dental lab desktop scanners receive major upgrade and two new scanners introduced featuring a new proprietary multi-line technology that boosts scanning speeds by 30%

Copenhagen, February 26, 2015 –3Shape unveiled today at Midwinter Meeting 2015 new versions of its D-series desktop scanners and two new D-series models – D2000 and D1000. The D2000 and D1000 feature multi-line scanning technology - a new 3Shape proprietary scanning technology shown in trials to increase scanning speeds by 30%.

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 desktop 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 also introduced today in Chicago two new lab scanners, the D2000 and D1000. The two 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

All-in-One scanning and the D2000’s large interior enable dental technicians to capture both the upper and lower models, all inserted dies, and occlusion information in a single scan. Both the D2000 and D1000 scanners can ”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 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 unnecessay. Auto-Occlusion Technology merges the previously simultaneously-scanned models within the software to create a correct bite.

“We are excited to bring our new and updated scanners to the dental lab market. The increased scanning speeds and accuracy provide a terrific time-saving solution for high production labs working with all types of indications, including advanced restorations,” says Flemming Thorup, president and CEO, 3Shape.

Documented accuracy in all 3Shape scanners

3Shape measures, controls and documents scanner accuracy, in all its scanners, using well-defined standards and metrology procedures. 3Shape’s high scan accuracy is validated in accordance with ISO 12836 – a standard that specifies a test protocol for the assessment of crown and bridge accuracy in dental scanners. Implant bars and bridges represent the most accuracy-demanding indication. Complementing the ISO standard, 3Shape additionally validates scan accuracy using specially designed implant objects.

*An additional die scan may be required for cases with exceedingly limited interproximal space between dies and neighboring teeth. All dies must be trimmed and sectioned.
