smart optics mini

With the smart optics mini we offer a cost-effective but high-quality extension of our portfolio alongside our popular high-performance scanners. The scanner with its modern design does not have a base plate at all, which is an advantage for installation and cleaning. The new fully automatic 3D desktop scanner made in Germany is the quietest 3D scanner on the market and can precisely perform the common dental indications. It is ideal for all newcomers and professionals who want simple, fast and accurate in-house production at favourable conditions.

The open design allows the user to act quickly in the scan area. By removing the rotary swivel unit, the smart optics mini makes room for articulators. Even large articulators fit in effortlessly. The functions included in the delivery state are selected in such a way that common dental and orthodontic cases can be scanned. The range of functions of the smart optics mini can be expanded by up to three modules if required. Whatever you choose, the 2-year warranty and its accuracy of < 6μm remain the same. Of course, the smart optics mini also has an interface to both exocad DentalCAD® and OnyxCeph³™ software.
