Precision Like other AD2 products, the AD2 articulator is machined from extruded aluminum and uses a polished green anodized finish (rather than powder coating) for long lasting beauty. The result is a strong, durable instrument that maintains its beautiful aesthetics over time rather and is not subject to bubbling and peeling. Interchangeable Between Instruments thanks to the AD2’s high level of precision manufacturing, models mounted on one AD2 articulator can be transferred to another with no loss of accuracy. That means transferring any patient’s models between offices or labs with a high level of confidence. No more moving the “original” articulator from one location to another to preserve accuracy. No more risk of theft or loss of the instrument. Closer Approximation of Movement Patterns Using interchangeable analogs (fossa boxes) based on the patient’s side shift and an adjustable angle of eminence, the AD2 articulator can closely approximate each patient’s mandibular movement patterns as the lower teeth cross the upper teeth. The result: greater accuracy and a better final fit.
Greater Flexibility With our latest innovation, AD2 articulators now incorporate modular incisal pins to provide you the ultimate in flexibility. Whether you need a straight incisal pin calibrated in millimeters or a curved incisal pin (where the incisal pin stays in the same vertical position when the articulator is open and closed), one articulator lets you do it all. Damage Preventing Shift Activators Side shift activators secure the top of the articulator against the condyles during movement, reducing the danger that the upper and lower frames might separate and damage your instrument. Convenient Centric Lock and Latch The centric lock centers the upper frame to the lower frame, making it easier for the operator to move in and out of the centric slot. Constructed of machined steel, this lock will not wear over time and ensures your articulator will always be in centric for many years. The centric latch uses a unique magnetic system to hold the latch in the down position. When you're ready to close the centric latch, simply press up to release the latch and engage it back in the upper frame. No springs, no rubber bands and nothing to break.
Industry Standard Design The arcon concept AD2 articulator is precision machined with an intercondylar distance of 110 millimeters, the industry standard you’re looking for in your next articulator. Further, our articulators accommodate Bennett movements up to 2.5mm, and the angle of eminence can be set from 25° – 72°, Easier Case Preparation and Presentation To make it easier to work in and on the AD2 articulator, we specifically designed it for easier viewing and photographing of the lingual areas. In short, it’s a pleasure to work with and a breeze to use. Lowest Prices Precision, strength and durability used to translate into “high prices”. With AD2, we’ve re-defined the meaning of these words. The AD2 articulator is priced as much as 30-50% below many of our competitors, with precision and design features they can’t match. Bottom line: better performance at a fraction of the cost.
