Sagemax announces a new partnership with Nabertherm to offer its high-temperature HTCT 01/16 zirconia sintering furnace. Equipped with SiC heating elements to avoid contamination or chemical interactivity often experienced between zirconia units and molybdenum disilicide heating elements, the furnace can reach 1,550°C in less than 40 minutes with cooling capability back to 200°C within 120 minutes for a reasonable overall cycle time and can sinter a variety of different zirconia materials. The furnace augments Sagemax's CAD/CAM product line which also includes its NexxZr, a high-translucency full contour zirconia, and a range of zirconia and wax discs compatible with different systems. Last summer, Sagemax partnered with Roland DGA to sell its DWX-50 milling machine and Tanaka Dental to market its pre-sintered stains and other products.
