Sales momentum gained for new inLab MC XL

Sept. 18, 2007
More than 25 percent of all original inLab milling units in the field were traded in by dental laboratory owners for Sirona's new inLab MC XL milling unit.

CHARLOTTE, North Carolina--Sirona Dental Systems, a leading producer of dental CAD/CAM systems, has announced that more than 25 percent of all original inLab milling units in the field were traded in by dental laboratory owners for the new inLab MC XL milling unit.

Since its introduction to the dental laboratory marketplace in February 2007, the demand for the new inLab MC XL by new prospects as well as owners of the original Sirona inLab has been tremendous. This is thanks in part to an aggressive trade-in program that substantially offset the cost of the new inLab MC XL milling unit.

"The number of compact inLab units that were traded in for the inLab MC XL was much higher than we expected," remarked Norbert Ulmer, Director of Dental Laboratory Applications for Sirona Dental Systems. "The response was quite remarkable. This is an indication to us that the dental laboratory industry seeks the latest Sirona inLab and CEREC technology."

Despite being on the market for only about six months, the inLab MC XL milling unit is redefining the standard for CAD/CAM technology with the following innovative features and benefits.

The inLab MC XL features a modern, elegant design with solid, heavy-duty construction. Milling performance and precision has been optimized to +/- 25 microns for increased efficiency. The tandem burs now spin at 60,000 RPM, resulting in considerably faster milling times--approximately 6 minutes for a full-contour crown.

The capacity of the inLab MC XL is almost double that of the current milling unit, enabling labs to mill up to 60 units per day. In addition, the inLab MC XL is configured with 4 burs on 4 motors, capable of milling the entire range of material blocks, so there is no need to change burs when changing materials. No tools are required to secure the block into the chamber--simply insert the peg and the machine will automatically lock the block into place.

The inLab MC XL will currently mill large-span bridges up to 7 units and approximately in Q1 of 2008 will be able to mill up to 10 unit bridges, which are ideal for producing entire quadrants at a time, or highly esthetic anterior frameworks that span the entire row of front teeth.

In addition, a large window at the front of the milling chamber allows easy accessibility for burr and block changing, as well as better visualization of the milling process with color-visualized status indication: the milling chamber lights up in specific colors that correspond with each stage of the milling process to keep the lab technician apprised of system status from anywhere in the room. As with the entire Sirona inLab product line, the Sirona inLab MC XL milling unit comes with a full 3-year warranty on parts and labor.

The inLab MC XL continues Sirona's mission of offering controllable, expandable, and affordable CAD/CAM solutions to any size dental laboratory, and any size laboratory can easily afford to intergrate this high-precision and high-volume production equipment into their laboratory.
