HELSINKI, Finland: Planmeca is excited to introduce the new PlanMill 60 S milling unit specifically designed for the needs of dental laboratories. The powerful five-axis milling unit is capable of both wet and dry processing of discs, blocks and prefabricated implant abutments for a variety of indications. Supporting an even broader range of indications than chairside milling units, Planmeca PlanMill 60 S is also a great tool for dentists willing to produce more advanced dental restorations and applications in-house.
The five-axis milling unit can be used to mill discs and blocks as well as prefabricated titanium and cobalt-chromium abutments. It is capable of both wet and dry processing of different materials, including zirconium dioxide, glass-ceramics, composites, PMMA and wax. PlanMill 60 S produces various dental restorations, custom implant abutments and bars, partial frames, bite splints and dentures precisely.
The use of various material holders extends the application possibilities of Planmeca PlanMill 60 S even further. With a half-open blank holder, the device can produce even the most demanding restorations for the anterior area. If it is necessary, the user can easily and quickly change the clamping holder in the milling chamber.
The Planmeca PlanMill 60 S milling unit is used in combination with the user-friendly Planmeca PlanCAM software, which calculates necessary milling paths for selected materials and indications. The software supports open STL files and guarantees a fast and easy workflow in the busy laboratory environment.
“Planmeca PlanMill 60 S is a powerful milling unit for the varying needs of dental laboratories, technicians and in-house laboratories. The platform-based design of Planmeca PlanMill 60 S allows introducing new functionalities to the milling unit also in the future with software updates and interchangeable clamping fixtures,” commented Jukka Kanerva, senior vice president at Planmeca.
