Ivoclar Vivadent AG, one of the world's leading dental companies providing a comprehensive range of products and systems for dental professionals, has unveiled its new Programat® S2 sintering furnace. The new model boasts a revamped design, a new colour touchscreen display with an intuitive graphical user interface and a larger cooling tray. Intelligent features, such as shorter processing times and new calibration options, simplify the use of the furnace and promote work efficiency. Amidst all the enhancements, the proven sintering chamber has remained unchanged in the new model and will continue to ensure high-quality sintering processes. Additional benefits integral to the Programat S2 include: sintering at temperatures up to 1600˚C, short sintering times (approx. 75 minutes for crowns made of IPS e.max ZirCAD) and a removable furnace head. Reliability and the ability to calibrate the furnace at any time are also strengths of this cutting-edge sintering furnace.
Impresses with intuitive handling
Dental technicians will appreciate the ease-of-use that the Programat S2 affords them, in addition to the high accuracy of the sintering results. The large colour touchscreen and enhanced user interface make for better visualisation of essential information and significantly simplify operation. The furnace is operated in the same way as any other press and ceramic furnace of the Programat series. For maximum reliability, pre-programmed settings are available for all zirconia materials from Ivoclar Vivadent. In addition, a variety of individual program options are there for dental technicians to choose from. Whether a fast or standard sintering program is selected, high sintering quality is integral to all of them. The OSD display is equipped with a new "blue" indicator for indicating the cooling phase of the furnace. The blue illumination is clearly visible even from a greater distance. The Programat S2 can be conveniently operated via a touchscreen. Progress of the sintering process can be monitored with the Programat app on a smartphone or tablet.
Convinces with reliability
The furnace is equipped with modern software to control the sintering process and provide high-accuracy results. Impeccable results can be expected at all times, even in conjunction with long-span zirconia restorations or rapid sintering processes (single-tooth restorations).
Ivoclar Vivadent's Programat S2 is the state-of-the-art specialist for the high accuracy sintering of zirconia restorations. The sintering furnace is being launched in a compact lightweight design with consistently improved features.
