I'm using a fairly new Velopex intraoral processor in my private
practice. Bought it in January. It is my understanding that they changed
to a finer mesh in the newer machines. I haven't seen any sign of marks on
the films. I'm running fairly tight quality control on this machine. On
this intra oral processor, one can only feed one film at a time and not too
quickly, or they come out overlapped. On the other hand, they don't get
lost in the works very often (one film in 6 months, so far).
It has method for producing a damp (unwashed) film in two minutes for endo
and similar. I like it.
