Schaan, Liechtenstein—The Ivoclar Group established a completely new way of manufacturing dental restorations when it transformed its revolutionary idea of pressing restorations from all-ceramic materials into reality: the press technology was born. IPS e.max Press is the original lithium disilicate glass-ceramic designed for the press technique. The material is the result of more than a decade of research, experience and continuous development.

With IPS e.max Press, Ivoclar supplies press ceramic materials that meet high quality requirements, while delivering accurate and aesthetic final results. The high flexural strength and fracture toughness of the materials enable minimally invasive restorations. Available in various degrees of translucency and shades, the materials offer a maximum level of flexibility in the dental practice and laboratory. Paired with the Programat G2 press furnaces, Ivoclar provides everything that is needed for a smooth workflow, enabling dental technicians and laboratories to benefit from unparalleled added value. The Programat press furnaces are a reliable partner for laboratories and dental technicians thanks to a host of proven technical features, including the fully automatic press function (FPF), automatic double-range temperature calibration (ATK2), crack detection system (CDS), optimized software user interface and additional IoT functions. The ceramic press workflow can be conveniently integrated into other digital workflows in the laboratory and practice. The PrograPrint 3D printing system can be ideally integrated into any conventional ceramic press procedure. The 3D printer (PrograPrint PR5) can print wax objects such as inlays, onlays, crowns or bridges for investing in the press technique, using an efficient digital procedure. This way, operators can capitalize on the advantages of additive manufacturing.

The components of the Ivoclar press technology are optimally coordinated with each other to ensure high-precision restorations. Economically efficient and effective manufacturing methods enable dental technicians to benefit from high productivity, while at the same time keeping investment costs low. Ivoclar offers the IPS e.max Calculator to calculate the production costs of the required restorations easily in just a few clicks. So, profit and cost effectiveness can be established before the work is begun and this information can assist in choosing the right workflow.
