New Ivoclar Vivadent Programat S1 is a light-weight and compact sintering furnace for the sintering of frameworks made of IPS e.max ZirCAD and other ZrO2 materials. New with software-version V2.0: “75 minutes is all it takes”!
With the Programat S1, long sintering processes are a thing of the past. It sinters single-tooth frameworks of zirconium oxide material in 75 minutes and zirconium bridge frameworks up to four units in 90 minutes. Conventional sinter furnaces usually take five to eight hours for this process. What does a short sintering process mean for the laboratory? Crowns and bridges with a zirconium oxide framework can be fabricated in one work day (including veneer). The short sintering process does not jeopardize the high material strength and accuracy of fit of the restoration, as scientific investigations have shown. Furthermore, less power is used.

New Ivoclar Vivadent Programat S1 SINTERING FURNACE 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.
