San Diego, CA (PRWEB) March 06, 2013
IOS Technologies Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Glidewell Laboratories, industry-leading provider of dental lab products and services, announced today that its new TS150™ Mill can now be integrated with the 3M™ True Definition Scanner and 3Shape TRIOS® digital impression solution. The TS150 Mill can already be used with the IOS FastScan® intraoral scanner and FastDesign™ CAD software to fabricate a full range of dental restorations. Paired with one of these leading digital impression systems, the TS150 provides an in-office milling solution for affordable same-day dentistry.
The TS150 Mill is a fast, efficient and affordable open-source milling unit with a powerful, air-driven 150,000 rpm spindle. Featuring an orbital precision milling strategy that preserves the marginal integrity of the final restoration, this in-office milling solution can be used to mill precision-fitting restorations from a variety of materials, including glass ceramic, resin nano ceramic, zirconia and poly (methyl methacrylate) (PMMA).
Integration of the TS150 Mill with the 3M True Definition Scanner and 3Shape TRIOS is possible due to the use of an open source file format called UDX, or Universal Dental Exchange. The work product of OXDIG (http://www.oxdig.org), UDX enables interoperability between software systems that integrate the standard into their solutions. Using this open source file format, the TS150 is capable of communicating with scanners, design software and lab management systems.
“Just like the IOS FastScan, the 3M True Definition Scanner and 3Shape TRIOS will seamlessly integrate with the IOS FastDesign CAD software and TS150 Mill,” says IOS Technologies President David Casper, “making any of these intraoral scanners an excellent choice for dentists who are looking for an easy way to incorporate a complete in-office milling solution into their practice.”
Included in the complete IOS clinical system is FastDesign CAD, an easy-to-use software program that features accurate crown proposals based on Glidewell Laboratories’ extensive experience with digital crown design. Through integration with the complete IOS system, 3M True Definition Scanner and 3Shape TRIOS users will now have the option to mill same-day restorations in the office through a reliable connection and workflow that has been validated by IOS Technologies and clinically tested by Glidewell Laboratories.
The TS150 Mill and complete IOS FastDesign System are available through Benco Dental. To locate a dealer or for more information about IOS Technologies and its complete solution for same-day dentistry, visit http://www.ios3d.com or call 858-202-3360.
