These are the innovations of IDS 2017!
Are the innovations that Ivoclar Vivadent will present at IDS in Cologne still a mystery to you? In the following article, we will present you the most important innovations:
Ivoclar Digital – digital expertise under one roof
Ivoclar Digital is the new category brand from Ivoclar Vivadent. This new brand comprises a comprehensive portfolio of CAD/CAM products for both dental laboratories including materials, milling machines and support services. The development of proprietary materials and digital processes and Ivoclar Vivadent’s close cooperation with the scanner partners and, especially the scanner and software provider 3Shape, ensures enhanced connectivity, convenience and productivity when using Ivoclar Digital products.
These are the components of Ivoclar Digital:
1. Materials: many additional products
Ivoclar Vivadent’s comprehensive range comprises esthetic and state-of-the-art CAD/CAM materials for fixed, removable and implant-supported prosthetic restorations. The following new products have been added to the portfolio:
- The IPS e.max system has been complemented with a versatile ZirCAD block and a range of discs.
- IPS e.max ZirCAD Multi discs enable the fabrication of zirconium oxide restorations with a polychromatic shade progression.
- With the tooth-coloured SR Vivodent CAD discs and the gingiva-coloured IvoBase CAD denture base material, the components for the digital denture manufacturing process are provided.
- The launch of the Viteo titanium base extends the Ivoclar Digital range to include a titanium bonding base especially designed for ceramics.
2. Milling and grinding machines: new brand PrograMill
Four new digital milling and grinding units will be introduced under the brand name of PrograMill. These cutting-edge machines set new standards in dental CAD/CAM technology and allow you to digitally produce dental restorations quickly and easily. In addition to the PrograMill PM3, PM5 and PM7 machines for dental labs, Ivoclar Vivadent will offer PrograMill One, a compact milling unit that has been especially designed to meet the needs of small laboratories.
3. Scanners/CAD: powerful package
The range of high-end scanners from 3Shape, such as D1000 and D2000, has been extended to include the new 3Shape E series. Highly efficient scanning technology has been employed in this series, which comprises the three entry-level units E1, E2, and E3. Together with the software “Dental Designer” they make up a powerful package. Exclusively developed Ivoclar Digital software add-ons (Digital Press Design, Digital Denture) increase the process reliability and efficiency of fully digitized processing procedures. All scanners and software are optimized to connect to the Ivoclar Digital system.
4. Service: support for CAD/CAM newcomers
The Ivoclar Digital offering is rounded off with Service+, the services of a dental outsourcing partner. Service+ assists dental laboratories with their entry into the world of CAD/CAM fabrication by taking on design and production orders and providing dental laboratories with access to an extended range of materials and indications. Thus laboratories benefit from enhanced productivity and even more flexibility in selecting the appropriate manufacturing procedure.
