Effective immediately, the Programat CS4 furnace will come pre-installed with two new programs for processing the new IPS e.max ZirCAD MT Multi zirconia blocks. Existing users can download the V2.0 software update from the Download Center free of charge to install it on their Programat CS4.
IPS e.max ZirCAD MT Multi: Adding new options to the Programat CS4 The Programat CS4 is a compact universal furnace designed for all sintering, crystallization and glazing needs in one unit. The individual programs are ideally matched to the respective materials. In addition, users have the possibility to create their own programs for other materials. The new IPS e.max ZirCAD MT Multi block presents an attractive alternative for the existing LT translucency version of the same material. Two programs – a speed and a standard program - have been especially developed and integrated into the V2.0 software to enable optimum sintering results for crowns and three-unit bridges. The standard program takes a touch longer to complete but results in esthetic outcomes that are even slightly better than those achieved with the speed program.
New program structure The program options of the Programat CS4 are sorted by material groups. The two new programs for the IPS e.max ZirCAD MT Multi blocks have been given the program slots 1 and 2, followed by the programs for IPS e.max ZirCAD LT, IPS e.max CAD and IPS Empress CAD. An overview of the updated program structure will be attached to each new Programat CS4 in paper format. It can also be downloaded from the website. Note for existing users: Installing the software update overwrites any self-created programs stored in the program slots 9 and 10. To avoid losing your own programs, back them up with the help of PrograBase3 prior to carrying out the software update.
