Kavo Proxam unveiled at IDS

Kavo recently unveiled the Kavo Proxam range of imaging technology at its stand at IDS 2023 this March.

Kavo took full use of its home turf advantage at IDS to make waves with a huge stand – and some exciting new product launches.

The company showed off its treatment centre portfolio, from the well-loved Estetica range to the new Uniqa E30.

The Uniqa range is designed to show off its owners’ individuality – without sacrificing ergonomics or efficient workflows. The Uniqa’s level of flexibility allows for a staggering number of configuration variants –  139,548,863,725,088 x 1016, to be exact.

Perhaps better yet, the treatment unit fits into the ‘mid-range’ price segment. Kavo calls these products the ‘generation of the premium compact class’. To the dentist that simply means better design and more comfort at a more cost-effective price.

The German manufacturer also made space for its range of dental instruments. The line covers everything from turbines, handpieces and contra-angles to polishing and prophy instrumentation.

A focus on imaging

But with a full practice set up and a ‘digital imaging corner’, the stand was not just visually impressive. It was practical too, giving visitors a chance to get up close and personal with Kavo’s extensive product range.

‘This is the first time that we’re showing how a practice could look,’ explained Sabine Ludwig, a product specialist at Kavo Germany.

‘We have our new Kavo Uniqa in chilli red – with some upgrades – and people are enjoying seeing it for themselves. That’s the most exciting part for us this time – along with the new line of products in our imaging corner, of course.’

Introducing the Kavo Proxam

Leading the line on the imaging front was the new Kavo Proxam range.

Sabine added: ‘The Kavo Proxam is the first big launch where you can really see the synergies between Planmeca and Kavo.’

Even the unit’s name lives up to this billing. It combines the well-known ‘pro’ from the Planmeca imaging product range with Kavo’s ‘xam’ naming convention, ‘symbolically honouring’ the quality of its forbears.

The Proxam range fills out three imaging categories: intraoral cameras, extraoral cameras, and the software powering it all.

The extraoral range offers two powerful imaging units in the Kavo Proxam 3D, and the Kavo Proxam 3DQ. The ‘Q’ specification offers a larger volume and greater flexibility in patient positioning.

A selection of 2D products are also available, ranging from whole imaging units to sensors and intraoral scanners.

‘The best thing about all these is that they work with our software platform, Romexis,’ said Sabine.

‘As part of the Planmeca family we are very very proud that we can now take advantage of Romexis’ best-in class, all in one software.’
