HeronTM IOS Incident Management Software

    • In addition to order management and scanning, the system allows you to share information with the lab via the cloud sharing option.
    • The software is designed to be highly flexible, with a fast learning curve that offers short and easy collaboration with the lab.
    • Open-source software is one of your biggest advantages when choosing the Heron IOS system as it offers you the option to work
      on any software platform and integrate the scanner into your office and lab workflow.
    • With the ability to scan and export in STL, PLY and OBJ format to any open lab CAD software, the Heron IOS system offers you the maximum flexibility in connecting and automating your digital recording.

The 3disc Heron IOS color scanner is designed and manufactured in the USA.

Additionally, the scanner development and design are based on four important cornerstones:

  • Open architecture – With output format STL and PLY. Compatible with most dental CAD systems, ensuring maximum flexibility for lab integration.

  • Price – The exact price is not yet available, but the scanner will be at the low end of the price scale – reasonable and affordable.

  • Ease of use – With the help of a live video feed and guidance tools, the user is guided to perform a scan of the full dental arch in a workflow. The scanner itself is intuitive and extremely easy to use with its light and small design, and a rotating tip that provides the best angle for scanning.

  • Productivity – With precision, ease of use, and openness comes productivity. It facilitates automation in the dentist’s workflow, as well as great communication options both between the dentist and the lab and between the dentist and patient. A perfect impression makes a perfect fit.

Heron IOS is an optical impression system that creates digital 3D models for dental restorations. It records the tooth morphology, analog impressions, or gypsum models for use in CAD/CAM for dental restorative prosthetic devices. A ‘cradle’ holds the scanner when not in use, and each unit comes with order management software for PCs, as well as lab integration with Exocad DentalCAD.

The scanner software is set up to aid in the creation of restorations such as Crowns, Bridges, Inlays, Onlays, and Veneers. It also offers premium features such as color capture, shade-matching, and a built-in heater to prevent fogging.
