Meet F8

More versatility
Provide a complete range of quality services to your doctors with less effort.
More speed
Stay on top of your caseload with lean, automated scan-to-design workflows.

Fast forward to 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
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
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.
