Sirona introduces InEos Blue desktop scanner

Sirona has launched the InEos Blue 3D desktop scanner.

The InEos Blue is built on Sirona's Bluecam technology, which utilizes short-wavelength visible blue light to facilitate flexible recording options, resulting in substantially faster scanning and precise 3D digital models, according to a company press release.

InEos Blue gives more control to dental technicians to determine what they want to record, the company said. During the scanning process, the technician utilizes an automatic image capture function that allows free movement of the model in any direction, providing complete control of the angle of the scan. Thus, the user takes a digital impression only of the required treatment area.

The InEos Blue scanner will be available in February 2010, along with a dedicated computer and inLab 3D software. The scanner can be utilized as a standalone unit or in combination with the inLab milling unit. In addition, InEos Blue can export scans in STL file format.
