  • Zirkonzahn Adds M4 Milling Unit to its Line

    Zirkonzahn has expanded its milling unit line—which includes the upgradable M5 Milling Unit and the M1 Compact Line Milling Unit—with the new M4 Milling Unit. It’s equipped with built-in wet processing function and 5+1 simultaneous axes milling technology, making it easier to mill hard-to-reach areas such as undercuts and divergences.

    Indicated for crowns, inlays, onlays, veneers and occlusally screw-retained bridges, attachments and bars, the unit can be used to mill zirconia, resin, wax, wood, sintered metal, cobalt chrome, titanium, Raw Abutments®, Bridge Rods, glass ceramics and composites. M4’s extra-large milling area is particularly suitable for the milling of models; up to 10 models or up to 20 complete full arches simultaneously.

    The integrated tool changer function and the tool magazine allow the automatic exchange of up to 32 milling burs, enabling efficient workflow management. The M4 workpiece table has various holders. For instance, you can clamp...

  • Zubler Debuts Milling Wax Discs

    Zubler USA launched its new milling wax designed for pressing and casting. The wax has the reproducibility of a sturdy milling wax while retaining the characteristics of hand wax; it’s strong enough to maintain marginal integrity during milling, but is also workable for melting, spruing or sculpting. Thanks to the material’s translucent and contrasting characteristics, design detail is more visible. Because resin can increase burnout time and cause damage to pressing ovens and contamination, the discs contain less resin and more high-quality wax for better final results.

    The company also announced a new pressing course for technicians interested in applying new technology and strategies to their pressing processes.

  • Zubler Introduces New Pressable Lithium Disilicate and Milling Machine

    Zubler’s new pressable lithium disilicate, conceptPress, has a flexural strength of 420 MPa and is available in 2- and 3-gram pellets; the 2-gram ingot is ideal for one to two units, reducing waste and saving on material costs. Ideal for inlays, onlays, crowns, veneers and three-unit bridges, the biocompatible material offers natural translucency and fluorescence and comes in three levels of opacity:

    conceptPress D Pellets are available in 16 VITA shades, three bleach shades and are ideal for the layering and staining technique.

    conceptPress ID Pellets come in five colors and, because of their higher opacity, are ideal for frameworks.

    conceptPress CT Pellets offer high translucency ideal for inlays and onlays.

    Due to the low viscosity of the material, the formation of a reaction layer during pressing is minimized. This process is optimized by the patented Advanced PressTM technology in the Zubler Variopress 300.e press ceramic furnace.

    The company also introduced DC Ceram™...
