Competence in dental CAD/CAM solutions The imes-icore philosophy

„Development, production, sales and service in Germany“ – Benefit from our know-how

Since the foundation of the company in 2002, imes-icore GmbH has emerged from being an expert for individual CNC - Machining systems to one of the world market leaders in digital, dental CAD/CAM production systems. Today, imes-icore serves all dental market segments such as dentists, clinics, laboratories and milling centers by offering the broadest portfolio of milling and grinding machines.

The naming of the company was already based on the idea of not only manufacturing individual machines, but also realizing plug-in complete systems by fully integrated elements of mechanics, electronics and software (imes = integrated mechanics, electronics, software). Symbolic of the increasing importance of the dental business, the term "icore" was later added as a concept for "integrated dental solutions".
