Ivoclar Vivadent takes their Programat furnace line to the next level with the addition of the S1 1600 sintering furnace that enables higher sintering temperatures up to 1600 degrees for beautiful restorations with the perfect level of translucency. It features a new type of heating element specially designed for intensive everyday use. These heating elements are characterized by their long service life and even heat emission – a feature that is essential to achieve optimum sintering results.
This furnace was also specifically designed in conjunction with Weiland Zenostar® and IPS e.max® ZirCAD materials and can sinter single crowns in as little as 75 minutes and allow you to quickly select from its pre-set programs or create your own. In contrast to conventional sintering furnaces, which are generally bulky and heavy, the Programat S1 1600 is characterized by its compact design and light weight. Compared with conventional sintering furnaces that weigh up to 220 lbs, the new furnace weighs in at only 61.7 lbs.
True to form, Ivoclar Vivadent has also made it extremely user-friendly by including their optical operating status display showing when the furnace is sintering, a membrane-sealed keypad, USB connection, in-lab calibration, and the only removable sintering furnace head on the market. With these incredible features and a competitive price point, this is a sure win for any laboratory.
