HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill.—Planmeca USA, a manufacturer of dental imaging and CAD/CAM equipment, announced the launch of two new CAD/CAM products—Planmeca PlanMill 50 S 5-axis mill and Planmeca PlanCAD Premium design software for creating dental prosthetics. These products, together with the Planmeca Emerald S intraoral scanner, provide a new solution, the Planmeca FIT Plus. This complete solution is designed to allow clinicians to achieve maximum productivity throughout the entire digital dentistry workflow.
Designed to produce high-end restorations with lab-quality aesthetics, the Planmeca PlanMill 50 S addresses the industry’s need to mill a wide variety of materials including zirconia, IPS e.max , glass ceramics, PMMA and wax. The mill comes equipped with a high-speed spindle and an automatic tool changer for 12 tools to keep it operating at full capacity. The Planmeca PlanMill 50 S has the ability to mill discs and blocks and can be used wet or dry.
Planmeca PlanCAD Premium’s user adaptability, flexibility and ease of use make it ideal for clinicians to design a broad range of applications, including crowns and bridge designs, wax-ups, removable partials and complete dentures. The software’s open workflow enables clinicians to import and export in various formats, while also allowing the importing of data from other scanners.
“These powerful new solutions provide clinicians versatility, giving them the ability to perform more procedures in-house and elevate patient care,” said Ed McDonough, president of Planmeca USA. “By taking a bold step in implementing the Planmeca PlanMill 50 S and Planmeca PlanCAD Premium software to their digital workflow, clinicians will experience optimal efficiencies and enhanced productivity, ultimately resulting in a greater ROI for their practices.”
