inLab MC X5 More freedom.

Sirona offers your lab greater freedom in terms of indications, materials and for processing third-party CAD/CAM data. The open 5-axis milling and grinding machine inLab MC X5 is designed specifically to meet dental lab requirements for cost-efficient production today and in the future.

The new freedom in detail

Every aspect of inLab MC X5 has been designed to address the CAD/CAM needs encountered in dental labs. Intensive technical and technological exchange with many dental technicians has led to the creation of a production machine fulfilling practically all requirements. For the reliable, independent production of dental prostheses.


inLab MC X5 is an open production unit. It is the perfect complement to the inLab components inEos X5 and inLab software, but it can also be used to process other STL restoration data.1 With its own CAM module, the machine can be connected to a wide range of other CAD systems at no additional cost.


The new inLab MC X5 has more than just outstanding functionality and simple operation: its extremely stable construction and modern design are also highly attractive. Its compact, elegant shape will be a real eye catcher in your lab and complements perfectly the award-winning inEos X5 extraoral scanner.

Design award winning inLab MC X5

Great variety of materials
inLab MC X5 is designed as a universal production unit for processing zirconium oxide, polymers, composites, wax, titanium and metals2 as well as glass and hybrid ceramics.
Preformed titanium abutment blanks

The new inLab MC X5 holder was specifically made for the processing of Medentika PreFace® titanium abutment blanks. This includes a prefabricated connection geometry to the implant and is machined in a process that has been specifically coordinated and validated for this material.

With the Spindle Touch Technology, that was specifically developed for this machine, pre-defines the exact position of the screw channel hole.

The Starter Kit Preface Abutments Medentika for inLab MC X5 contains the preform holder from mounting, plus new cutting bits for metal, along with a tool magazine and all other necessary components.

Disks and Blocks

Ronden verarbeiten

inLab MC X5 processes standard disks (Ø 98.5 mm, up to 30 mm thick)3 and blocks in a single machine. Together with complete freedom to use any material, the system offers you the capability to handle a broad spectrum of indications today and in the future. Switching from disks to blocks takes just a few seconds.

Blöcke verarbeiten

The innovative multi-block holder can accommodate up to six blocks of different materials thereby enabling maximum productivity even with multiple single tooth applications.

Wet and Dry

Nassbearbeitung mit dem inLab MC X5

inLab MC X5 can be used for wet, dry, or dry/wet combination production during the same machining operation depending on material and indication.

Sirona has drawn upon its 30 years of experience in the wet processing of glass ceramics to create the ultimate machine for the wet grinding of fully anatomical restorations from high-strength monolithic materials.

Switching between wet and dry production e.g. from glass ceramics to zirconium oxide is fast and uncomplicated.

Milling and Grinding

Schleifen und Fräsen mit inLab MC X5

Different tools are used depending on whether the machining process is wet or dry: Our carbide cutters and diamond grinders are designed to ensure that the cutting geometries and coatings are optimal for various indications and materials. So you achieve superb results on all surfaces and margins.

Spindle Touch Technology

Höchste Genauigkeit mit der Technologie der inLab MC X5

The unique technology of inLab MC X5 is able to capture the position of disks and blocks with the utmost precision. These exceptionally high levels of accuracy enable you to make the most economical use of materials and e.g. efficiently machine blocks with dentin or mesostructures.

First-Class Tool Changing Concept

The fully automated tool changer can be fitted with up to six tools per process. You can prepare the tool magazine according to the specific material and manage it via the associated inLab CAM software. Intelligent spare tool management helps to achieve optimal tool service life and failure safety. Additional user friendliness and user safety is assured by the color coding for material types on each tool and tool magazine in the CAM software.

Easy Clean Concept

The high-quality interior design of inLab MC X5 includes smooth surfaces and rounded contours. This reduces deposit amounts making the machine easy to clean. The intelligent suction concept, coverable tool magazine and software-supported cleaning system are all designed to make your work easier.

More convenience with Touch Remote Control

You can now have a complete view of the machining status of your inLab MC X5 anywhere, anytime. With the “touch” optimized inLab CAM software you can navigate through the machine configuration and service functions on a tablet PC quickly and with just a few clicks.4
