More Indications, More Functions – inLab SW Update 18.0 Enhances CAD/CAM Workflow In Dental Technology

30-04-2018

Dentsply Sirona Lab, the newly created business unit, has launched inLab SW 18.0 as of April 2018. This new software has optimised the functional scope and handling of the CAD and CAM software for an even wider range of applications and more efficient production procedures in the dental laboratory. All inLab software application modules benefit from the innovations.

New indication with inLab CAD SW 18.0 – Models with removable stumps and implant analogs; including separate gingival mask

The success of a CAD/CAM workflow in the dental laboratory is essentially a software question. The software should cover a wide spectrum of indications and functions and simultaneously work in a user-friendly way. These are the characteristics that will prove the value of the latest inLab SW 18.0 update across the board.

 

New applications – More design options

The previous model design has been improved, so that now full-arch models with removable dies and models with implant analogues can be constructed, including a separate gingival mask for any kind of model. Different articulator systems can be implemented and the model can be individually labelled. The completed model data for production can be provided by means of a 3D-printer or in a central production facility via the optional STL interface.

In the area of implant restorative solutions, inLab is the first program to offer the option to design multilayer gingival bridges for the production of highly aesthetic, directly attached implants with a gingival section. The structure with the gingival section can be separated from the veneering structure for production from different materials, and the veneering structure can be processed as one piece, split into individual crowns, or made from a combination of the two depending on the aesthetic goal.

A special feature of the current inLab SW is the new “1:1 Copy Mode”. Using this additional copy function, all geometries of a restoration can be copied exactly in accordance with the original and transferred – ideally for large bridges and implants with a gingival section, when, for instance, any adjustments to long-term temporary solutions are transferred into the final restoration. This saves dental technicians an enormous amount of time and can also cover a variety of attachment geometries in a 1:1 ratio.

 

“We have significantly expanded and upgraded the inLab SW 18.0 especially where it can efficiently support the dental laboratory and where it guarantees more ease of use,” summarises Mr. Jörg Haselbauer, Product Manager for CAD/CAM Laboratory Software at Dentsply Sirona. This pertains to gingival elements for bridges and for choosing original attachment geometries for slide attachments. Additionally, the revised administration phase now offers the user – in a clearly organised overview on a screen – an intelligent tool for quickly and accurately positioning and managing restorations and flexible adjustment options during the design phase.

Lab-to-lab workflow with Dentsply Sirona

For the first time, an inLab laboratory can transfer scan or restoration data quickly and safely to another inLab laboratory and receive it back again via the Sirona Connect Portal to make optimal use of construction and production capacities, for example. This new function also simplifies access to the patient-specific solutions from Atlantis directly from the inLab SW – for the design and manufacture of implant abutments and suprastructures by Dentsply Sirona.

Inclusive inLab CAM software update

The inLab SW 18.0 update includes the inLab CAD SW 18 and the inLab CAM SW 18.0. The new CAM software supports the inLab MC X5 and inLab MC XL production units with optimised workflows. The new archiving function, the option to reuse material, a simplified pin tool, and other improvements in the details boost efficiency and safety when using machines on a daily basis. The new tool status display reliably informs the user about the status of the tool’s wear and tear when using validated materials. Additional materials from Dentsply Sirona and others are also integrated and validated in inLab CAM, such as Cercon ht, Cercon xt, Lucitone 199, Wax Disc, Multilayer PMMA, Shaded PMMA, Burnout PMMA Disc and Celtra Duo.

The inLab SW 18.0 update can only be ordered from specialist dealers.
