The innovative inEos X5 lab scanner was well received in the market: Just one year after its launch, Sirona has delivered the 1,200th scanner. Outstanding precision, a broad spectrum of applications, and easy handling make it a flexible CAD/CAM partner in dental laboratories.

Bensheim/Salzburg – The inEos X5 extraoral scanner from Sirona is a versatile and reliable aid for all digitalization tasks in dental laboratories. Its success speaks for itself: One year after the market launch, 1,200 scanners have already been sold, and for good reason. It is the only five-axis scanner with a robot arm that has an impressively large, high precision scanning range with innovative model positioning and both automatic and manual imaging techniques. It offers users fast scanning, versatile options for use, and full process control. inEos X5 can also be integrated with other CAD/CAM systems.

 Manual and fully automatic scanning

As the successor to the inEos Blue, the inEos X5 laboratory scanner by Sirona has been available from specialist dealers since May 2013. The new development from Sirona scans partial and whole jaw models and impressions – either automatically or manually – depending on the user’s needs. The scanner features innovative five-axis technology and uses a rotation arm to optimally position and align the objects to be scanned. While the manual scanning mode saves time for simpler operations, the fully automatic scanning mode has its benefits, especially with regard to extensive operations such as shortening the work time and reducing the steps required by the user. In addition, the data volume is optimized which speeds up the subsequent calculation of the model.

A versatile tool for the laboratory

The features and handling make inEos X5 a favorite with new users as well as experienced dental technicians. The large working area is accessible for all conventional articulators. Due to the universal model and impression tray holder, all conventional model support and split cast systems, as well as impression trays in all sizes, can be used. The multi-die scanning (multiple rotation imaging) of up to four stumps offers optimal support where the proximal contacts are difficult to see and in the fabrication of frameworks and copings for single restorations. The already integrated STL interface allows flexible linking with other CAD/CAM systems.

“inEos X5 is very precise and, due to its large pivot range, it can cover any situation optimally. This gives us very good model reproduction for further processing with CAD/CAM. I rarely need to make additional, individual, manual images. The scanner offers fast, precise imaging technology and a good operating concept for various model systems. The switch is very fast, smooth, and poses no problems. The STL files allow all downstream CAD/CAM units in our laboratory to be used easily,” says Ingo Raschert, master dental technician and managing director of Teuber Dental Laboratory in Darmstadt.

With its outstanding precision, speed, and user-friendly functions, inEos X5 has become an innovative, versatile tool for every laboratory. For more information, please visit: www.sirona.de.
