A complete maxillofacial
imaging system.


Robotic arm technology

Planmeca ProMax® features highly advanced and exclusive robotic SCARA (Selectively Compliant Articulated Robot Arm) technology – providing flexible, precise and complex movements required for rotational maxillofacial imaging.

SCARA (Selectively compliant articulated robot arm)

User benefits for SCARA

The precise free-flowing arm movements allow for a wider variety of imaging programs not possible with other X-ray units with fixed rotations. SCARA offers superior imaging capabilities for both existing and future technologies.

All the imaging programs you need

Our Planmeca ProMax® X-ray unit offers the widest variety of imaging programs available – easily meeting all your clinical needs. You can also select the correct exposure formats to minimise the radiation dose for all types of patients and diagnostic purposes.

Standard: Basic panoramic programs

Standard panoramic
Lateral TMJ (closed & open)
PA TMJ (closed & open)
PA sinus


Child (Paediatric) mode for each standard and optional program to reduce the dose


Horizontal and vertical segmenting for panoramic program


True Bitewing

Optional: Advanced panoramic programs

Interproximal panoramic
Orthogonal (perio) panoramic
Lateral-PA TMJ
Lateral multiangle TMJ
PA multiangle TMJ
PA linear sinus
Lateral sinus

Optional: Tomography programs

Digital linear tomography in digital unit
True linear tomography or Linear tomography in film unit

Panoramic imaging

In addition to the Standard panoramic program, the following programs are offered:

Interproximal panoramic program: generates an image, where interproximal teeth contacts are open. Primarily used for caries detection.

Orthogonal panoramic program: produces an image with clearly visible alveolar crest for improved diagnostics. Ideal for periodontal imaging and implant planning.

Extraoral bitewings

The Bitewing program uses improved interproximal angulation geometry. The result is a bitewing image pair with low patient dose and excellent diagnostic quality.

Sinus imaging

The Sinus programs provide a clear view of the maxillary sinuses.

Horizontal and vertical segmenting for panoramic program

With the Horizontal and vertical segmenting program, exposure can be strictly limited to the diagnostic region of interest. Patient dosage is reduced by up to 90% compared to full panoramic exposure.

TMJ imaging

The TMJ imaging programs produce lateral or posteroanterior views of open or closed temporomandibular joints. The imaging angle and position can be adjusted to correspond to the anatomy of each individual patient.
The Lateral-PA TMJ program captures lateral and PA views on the same radiograph. The multi-angle TMJ programs produce radiographs with images from three different angles, from either the lateral or PA view.




Child mode for reduced dose

Child mode reduces the patient dose remarkably for all programs by reducing the imaging area and exposure values.
In the panoramic program the focal layer can also be narrowed.


New opportunities for tomography

Planmeca ProMax® 2D tomography programs provide accurate tomographic information for the analysis, planning and follow-up of implant and surgical procedures. 

The tomography programs include a wide range of manual and automatic cross-sectional and longitudinal imaging programs and their combinations. Combined tomography is highly valuable in implant planning, integrating cross-sectional and longitudinal views on the same radiograph. Both transversal and longitudinal views show the same position in two perpendicular projections, giving three-dimensional information on the target with the same magnification.

Easy upgrade from 2D to 3D

Planmeca ProMax® – future proof and a great investment

Planmeca ProMax® 2D is designed with upgradeability in mind. The unit’s modular structure allows easy conversion to different imaging modalities, while the software-driven SCARA is extremely flexible, allowing you to benefit from new imaging projections.

Whether you’re upgrading your 2D unit to 3D, or adding a cephalometric arm, Planmeca has the right solution for you. Individual options can be installed before delivery or added later, making Planmeca ProMax the most versatile all-in-one X-ray unit available.
