3Shape, Copenhagen, Denmark, has introduced the new E4 lab scanner.
To reduce scanning steps and save time in labs, the E4 reportedly has 4 x 5 MP cameras to enable powerful impression scanning and scanning of dies while they are still in the model. Like all 3Shape E models, the E4 features auto-start scanning and articulator holder support. A full arch scan reportedly takes 11 seconds, with a scanner accuracy of 4 microns, according to the company.
The E4 scanner will be available August 2019.
