New as of this month, it will be possible to control Amann Girrbach machines via the "MillBox for Amann Girrbach" software from third-party supplier CIMsystem.
Amann Girrbach, a pioneer in tailored solutions for dental laboratories and practices, looks to further enhance CAM software flexibility with its new MillBox Open CAM software.
The company, which continues to uphold its commitment to providing made-to-measure solutions that optimize individual workflows, focuses on ensuring safety, fully integrated processes, and the flexibility to connect Amann Girrbach products with third-party solutions, creating a cohesive ecosystem.
Also in line with this philosophy, Amann Girrbach extends its reach in the CAM software domain with the Ceramill Match 2 CAM software. Renowned for offering users a high degree of process safety, the software integrates all milling process components into a validated workflow, delivering consistently optimal results, according to the manufacturer.
Beginning in November 2023, Amann Girrbach takes a bold step by allowing its milling machines to be operated using the "MillBox for Amann Girrbach" software from the third-party supplier CIMsystem. This move broadens the CAM application range, enabling customers to seamlessly integrate Amann Girrbach machines into their existing software infrastructure.
This expansion offers users the flexibility to choose between Amann Girrbach's fully integrated Ceramill Match 2 software and the option to link their milling machines to the "MillBox for Amann Girrbach" software.
Users who work with the MillBox can thus create an individual connection to the existing system to digitally operate the Amann Girrbach Ceramill milling machines.
Christian Ermer, vice president of marketing & digital at Amann Girrbach, emphasizes the seamless integration for MillBox users. "For MillBox users, the 'MillBox for Amann Girrbach' software seamlessly integrates into the familiar MillBox environment and workflows and enables access to the familiar MillBox functions. In addition, this open CAM solution offers extended connectivity options for the users of alternative CAD programs such as 3Shape. This makes it easy to import dental CAD designs regardless of source," Ermer explains in a press release.
The "MillBox for Amann Girrbach" software is characterized by its intuitive interface. The stored, automated functions are designed to shorten the time required for production and minimize manual errors.
Users are still able to secure the complete digital and validated workflow with the Ceramill Match 2 software from Amann Girrbach.
"With the integration of Ceramill Match 2, all the system components are truly optimally matched to reliably achieve outstanding results in terms of restorations in the shortest possible time," Ermer emphasizes in the press release. A well-structured user interface enables intuitive operation.
"CAM and milling know-how are not required to use Ceramill Match 2—even with little experience, milling programs can be created easily and quickly to fabricate a wide range of differing indications. Positioning and aligning the blanks is also quick and easy," he adds in the press release.
Other advantages include the fast calculation of milling paths, sintering-matched and accurate processing of large-span zirconia restorations, and the convenient nesting concept according to the Vita shade guide. "We permanently advance the development of the Ceramill Match 2—in the field of composite fabrication, the Diamond Finish processing mode provides for highly esthetic results. And for titanium implant work, the Ceramill Match 2 allows design and fabrication with angulated screw channels. For the user, this offers advantages such as greater flexibility, high speed as well as maximum safety in a perfectly coordinated workflow," Ermer continues in the press release.
