Silent, fast, precise – this is how the Vinyl presents itself. As the first and eponymous model in the series, it is technically characterized by a suitable 1.3 megapixel camera and structured light triangulation with white light LEDs.

Its extensive range of accessories is supplied in a practical hard case. The Vinyl can be closed with a vertically opening lid – dust and stray light don’t stand a chance. Open operation is possible too. Scans can also be started via the touchscreen instead of the software.

The Vinyl – a scanner for all cases.

The Vinyl series

The compact design with the distinctive cube shape is a characteristic feature of smart optics Vinyl scanners. The series owes its name to the large black system plate, strikingly reminiscent of a turntable. Equipped with a fully automatic Z-axis and a user-friendly 180° opening, the dental desktop scanners provide convenient space for all dental objects, from individual segments through jaw models, full and partial impressions (also of toothless jaws) up to articulators of various brands.

Highest quality combined with German engineering, reliability in harmony with longevity – these are the requirements that smart optics accomplishes with the Vinyl Series. Tried and tested LED sensor technology and smart motorization allow high-precision, fast measurements. Technical innovations from our own research as well as the implementation of customer requests ensure that the Vinyl Series evolves constantly to meet the growing demands both of today and the future.

An extensive range of accessories for models and impressions can be added or purchased later for both basic and additional modules. Thanks to the multisplit base plate, which is standard for all smart optics dental scanners, same-system models and articulators do not require any accessories.
It goes without saying that all Vinyl scanners are supplied with the powerful dental Scan software – including interfaces to prestigious industry software, first and foremost exocad DentalCAD. In conjunction with the open dental Scan system, Vinyl scanners offer another advantage by working not only as first-class dental scanners, but also as clever universal scanners for objects within the size of their measuring field.
