The Ceramill CAD/CAM system from AMANN GIRRBACH AMERICA is a fully integrated, efficient solution that allows laboratories...See more of all sizes to control fabrication processes in-house. The system includes the automated Map400 scanner; Mind software with Artex® virtual articulator; five-axis, wet/dry Motion2 mill; and advanced materials such as Zolid zirconia and Sintron® soft CrCo. Built on an open-architecture, modular platform, the system offers flexibility and scalability: the components are optimized to work together but are also compatible with other open hardware/software so you can seamlessly exchange data with others and not limit your options for future expansions or upgrades.
The Ceramill Motion 2 from AMANN GIRRBACH is a compact hybrid CNC milling machine that combines 5-axis milling...See more and grinding technology, in both wet and dry applications. This enhanced flexibility now allows the lab to perform almost every fabrication process in house including, the dry milling of zirconia, wax and Amann Girrbach's new non-precious alloy Sintron (CrCo-Soft) and the wet milling of PMMA, TEMP and composites, as well as wet grinding of glass ceramics. With a modular design platform that's easily upgradable, the Motion 2 is ready to handle a range of new materials and future indications, virtually eliminating the need to outsource.
Ceramill Sintron CrCo sinter metal allows laboratories to dry mill non-precious metal restorations in-house using...See more desktop milling machines. The metal, developed by AMANN GIRRBACH in collaboration with Fraunhofer IFAM Dresden, has a wax-like texture so it's easily milled with either the Ceramill Motion or Ceramill Motion 2 milling machines and also minimizes wear and tear on tools. Because it is dry-milled, cooling is unnecessary. The CrCo blanks can then be sintered using the Ceramill Argotherm® sinter furnace, specifically developed for this indication.
