inLab MC X5, the five-axis milling and grinding unit newly developed especially for the demands of dental laboratories, completes Sirona’s inLab system. Dental technicians benefit from the greatest flexibility for the entire production process of esthetically pleasing restorations and the largest selection of materials available on the market.
“The new laboratory unit sends a clear signal from Sirona to dental technicians,” says Reinhard Pieper, Director of inLab Product Management at Sirona. Users benefit from 30 years of experience with CAD/CAM in wet processing of various materials combined with new dry processing techniques – in one machine. “We implemented all of our know-how as a pioneer and innovation leader of dental CAD/CAM technology to develop a CAD/CAM laboratory machine tailored specifically to meet existing and future demands,” added Pieper. “This ensures that inLab MC X5 will be a good investment in the long term.”
inLab MC X5 is Sirona’s first open production unit and is suitable for use with various existing CAD/CAM equipment in dental laboratories – for users with a Sirona scanner and inLab software or for laboratories with scanners and CAD components from other manufacturers. STL restoration data can be imported easily and quickly to the CAM software module developed for inLab MC X5 and processed with inLab MC X5. In combination with the inEos X5 scanner and inLab software, the new laboratory machine is the optimal complete solution for new users of Sirona CAD/CAM production.
The machine allows the dental laboratory a free choice of all material suppliers and it benefits additionally from the material competence of Sirona’s material partners VITA Zahnfabrik, Ivoclar Vivadent, Dentsply, Merz Dental, 3M ESPE, and GC.
Thanks to the combination of the wide range of indications, free choice of materials, and open interfaces for external restoration data, dental technicians can use the machine flexibly from the start. The high-quality, functional design of the chamber of the laboratory unit ensures easy maintenance and makes it fast and easy to clean with the specially developed “easy-clean” concept. It can quickly switch among various materials and between wet and dry processing. This flexibility combined with the reasonable cost and the fact that there are no additional dongle fees makes inLab MC X5 very cost effective. The unit is delivered with its own inLab CAM software module and can be ordered from dental dealers immediately.
