FARO has announced the FARO Optor Series platform, designed and developed for dentists, dental clinics and dental laboratories. With Optor, FARO is introducing the exacting 3D industrial measurement standards and accuracy into the dental industry derived from 20 years of proven expertise in the manufacturing industry. Accordingly, users can be supremely confident that their digital copy is an exceptionally accurate representation of reality.
The Optor Series is a tightly integrated, one stop solution that includes both structured light 3D scanner hardware with infrared technology and the most advanced and powerful 3D scanning software. The portfolio includes two unique digital dental scanners, Optor Lab and Optor Clinic. Each scanner includes its own software which ensures a seamless, optimized, workflow even as software or hardware gets updated over time. Optor software ranges from an Expert user mode to Guided procedure functionality where users can be directed through a series of steps, so even beginner technicians are able to easily and effectively drive the hardware to best in class outcomes.
Optor Lab (https://www.faro.com/faro-optor-lab/)
Optor Lab is specifically geared to dental laboratories and dental technicians for use cases that include prosthesis, removable frameworks, impressions and orthodontics. It can be seamlessly downloaded into the most popular digital dentistry CAD solutions in the industry for a confident and unbroken workflow. The dedicated OptorL software package is designed to be modular, so customers can selectively purchase the feature package/packages that best meet their combined financial and outcome requirements. Options range from accelerated scanning speed up to 50% faster, enhanced scanning accuracy up to 5 micrometers and/or color scanning, and/or single camera acquisition that allows for increased completeness of the data e.g. more in-depth data about holes or geometric nuances that a scan cannot provide.
Optor Clinic (https://www.faro.com/faro-optor-clinic/)
Optor Clinic is specifically directed to dentists and dental clinics for use cases that include implantology, impressions and prosthesis. It is fully automated and able to scan up to three impressions simultaneously. The operator simply has to put the impression in the scanner and, with just a few clicks, can scan the impression. The user does not have to move or manually rotate the object.
Optor Lab and Optor Clinic will be available for delivery in July 2019. A potential future addition to the portfolio, Optor Body, is currently showcased in the FARO Early Adopter Program https://early-adopter.faro.com/. It acquires the face and tracks the movements of the lower jaw under different conditions and is geared to dentists and dental clinics for smile design and ethical prosthesis applications.
