Press release   •   Sep 09, 2016 11:21 UTC

The Finnish dental equipment manufacturer Planmeca today announced the latest addition to its comprehensive product line – the Planmeca PlanMill® 40 S milling unit for dental clinics. It is the most powerful unit for chairside milling the dental market has seen.

The Planmeca PlanMill® 40 S milling unit has been designed for the chairside fabrication of metal-free dental restorations and appliances. It combines superior usability with accurate high-speed milling.

“Planmeca PlanMill 40 S will introduce a level of quality, precision and performance that has not yet been seen in the industry”, states Jukka Kanerva, Vice President of Planmeca’s Dental care units and CAD/CAM division.

With its state-of-the-art design, smart tool paths, expanded range of applications, automated tool changer for 10 tools, and intelligent maintenance features, Planmeca PlanMill 40 S is set to offer the most complete milling experience available today.

“The S in the product’s name stands for Smart – which is exactly what the unit brings to the table”, Kanerva illuminates.

“From usability to performance, the new unit has been built to achieve the smartest and most efficient milling experience in the field.”

The Planmeca PlanMill 40 S unit will replace its predecessor Planmeca PlanMill 40 in the company’s product line.

The new milling unit will also combine with the Planmeca PlanScan® intraoral scanner and the Planmeca PlanCAD® Easy design software in forming the Planmeca FIT™ chairside CAD/CAM system from now on.

Planmeca PlanMill 40 S is immediately available for orders everywhere except the North American Market. Deliveries are expected to begin in Q4 2016.
