Ceramill Map 600+ Delivers High-Speed Scanning with Maximum Precision

Amann Girrbach's new scanner for open articulator scanning also produces even shorter turnaround times.

Quicker turnaround times are just 1 of the many features included with the fully automatic Ceramill Map 600+, Amann Girrbach's new scanner flagship for open articulator scanning that was announced on Thursday. The scanner is designed to deliver outstanding precision for perfect restorations and optimally support dental technicians in their work.

This new high-performance scanner heralds the advent of Industry 4.0 in the laboratory. The intelligent software algorithm automatically assigns the upper and lower jaws, thereby eliminating the vestibular scan and thus up to 30 percent of the manual steps in the laboratory. Due to its integrated universal carrier plate for all common types of articulators, the Map 600+ saves time-consuming plate changes and the intelligent scan height control automatically moves the object to be scanned into the best possible scanning area.

Amann Girrbach has equipped the Map 600+ with an Ultra HD camera. The highly sensitive industrial 3D sensor with Blue Light technology is designed to ensure outstanding depth of field and a scanning accuracy of 4 micrometers. Making optimal use of the advantages of digitization and a seamless workflow requires the model situation from the real articulator to be converted into a data set with maximum precision.

The scanner’s new, more efficient calculation algorithm also reduces the matching time by up to 35 percent, depending on the indication. This reduces the active waiting time of a scanning process by up to 25 seconds. Depending on the indication, the Ceramill Map 600+ therefore provides time savings of between 15 and 38 percent, according to Amann Girrbach.
