Oliver Brix

Oliver Brix, Germany:

The Programat P710 is my kind of furnace because for me it's very important that the furnace is calibrated perfectly. With the ATK 2 temperature calibration system I can check and calibrate the temperature in the furnace precisely. Only a perfect temperature enables perfect firing results."

Gérald Ubassy, France:

“I was amazed to hear that Ivoclar Vivadent launched a furnace with a built-in infrared camera. When I tested the Programat furnace for the first time, I was surprised by the firing results. I would never have thought that I could measure the temperature on the objects being fired so accurately with the help of this technology.”

"I look not only for an excellent firing performance in a furnace. Its optical design also plays an important role for me because ever more patients come to us to the laboratory for shade matching. The Programat P710 combines a top modern design with technical perfection and inspires confidence in our patients."
