Our Planmeca Viso® and Planmeca ProMax® X-ray units feature highly advanced and exclusive SCARA imaging technology – short for Selectively Compliant Articulated Robot Arm. It flawlessly executes the flexible, precise and complex movements that are required in rotational maxillofacial imaging.
SCARA imaging technology ensures precise movements without mechanical restrictions. It combines an electro-mechanical construction with real-time computation of dynamic rotation patterns – leading to optimised imaging of each individual patient.
SCARA technology allows our Planmeca Viso and Planmeca ProMax X-ray units to carry out a wider variety of imaging programs than X-ray units with fixed rotations. Their precise free-flowing movements provides the ability to produce numerous 2D and 3D imaging geometry options flexibly – including extraoral bitewings and TMJ imaging.
We utilise two different versions of SCARA technology in our imaging units – SCARA2 and SCARA3. The former is a two-joint model that is suitable for basic panoramic imaging needs, while the latter is a three-joint model that enables an even more extensive range of movements and can freely produce any patter required by any existing or future exposure program.
