Zenotec select hybrid
The Innovative Milling System
Zenotec select hybrid combines versatility with high precision and process reliability.
Ivoclar Vivadent offers an extensive CAD/CAM system that is comprised of products and services for the entire digital processing chain. Dental laboratories have a wide choice of fully coordinated products including scanners, materials and equipment. The system is complemented by a comprehensive range of services, including backup milling at Wieland Precision Technology. As a result dental laboratories benefit from optimized workflows and maximum productivity and flexibility.
The innovative Zenotec select hybrid is a state-of-the-art five-axis machining system that is capable of wet grinding and dry milling dental materials. The system is available in two versions – one with and one without a material changer. As a result, the machine can be operated manually or fully automatically to mill materials using a dry or a wet (e.g. IPS e.max CAD) process.
The machine is fitted with a specially developed spindle as well as electronic equipment for monitoring the fill level, water pressure, flow rate and filter status to allow efficient, reliable and smooth switching between the dry and the wet operating mode. The 16-position tool changer automatically changes and switches out worn tools for new ones. Apart from the machine control applications, the Zenotec software suite also contains the user-friendly Zenotec CAM program. This software is a valuable aid to blank management, ensuring space-saving nesting combined with fast computation and exceptional ease of use. These features help to ensure the high quality of the machining results.
Features and Benefits:
- New wet grinding function: The new wet grinding function of Zenotec select hybrid accommodates the milling requirements of the lithium disilicate glass-ceramic IPS e.max CAD and the leucite glass-ceramic IPS Empress CAD. Automatic identification technology enables the IPS e.max blanks to be allocated according to their size and shade in the predefined IPS e.matrix.
- The Zenotec hydro cooling and filtration system ensures optimum milling results. A high pump pressure reduces tool wear and brushless pump technology lowers the maintenance frequency of the unit.
- Improved dry milling process: The dry milling process is now optimally matched to the zirconium oxide discs of the Zenostar system and therefore produces high-precision results.
- 8-disc material changer: The Zenotec select hybrid with material changer is fully automatic and allows a number of discs to be milled without any manual intervention. Different materials, for example, zirconium oxide, wax, and composite resin, can be automatically milled in succession with the 8-disc material changer. The automatic material changer also manages up to eight patented IPS e.matrix™ multiholders at a time, each of which holds up to six millable blocks, offering a high level of productivity for IPS e.max labs.
