vhf camfacture AG is Ivoclar Authorized Milling Partner for IPS e.max CAD

Second Ivoclar certification for vhf in one year

vhf and Ivoclar are further expanding their joint partnership: In February 2023 vhf was one of the first manufacturers to be certified as an Ivoclar Authorized Milling Partner for the Ivotion Denture System. vhf camfacture AG is now also an official Ivoclar Authorized Milling Partner for the renowned lithium disilicate ceramic IPS e.max CAD.

The IPS e.max Authorized Milling Partner accolade represents a validated and optimally coordinated processing procedure between the material and the device. This seal of quality guarantees high-precision, high-quality restorations and has now been officially awarded to vhf. The vhf DENTALCAM 8.09 software update will be available in mid-March 2024, and the IPS e.max CAD for PrograMill in the vhf N4+ will be authorized for crowns, inlays, onlays, veneers and three-unit dental bridges up to the second premolar. vhf is also planning to obtain authorization from Ivoclar for additional wet grinding machines in the near future.

“The collaboration between vhf and Ivoclar to achieve a successful validation reinforces the trust and certainty of users in the quality and precision of the vhf dental milling machines. The IPS e.max Authorized Milling Partner accolade is the official declaration that dental and practice laboratories can process IPS e.max CAD in an optimal procedure with vhf machines,” says Lucas Kehl, Head of Product at vhf camfacture AG.

vhf is one of the leading manufacturers of modern dental milling machines, high-precision milling tools and associated CAM software, and is renowned internationally for its high standards of quality and the innovative strength of its products; two characteristics shared by vhf and Ivoclar. The N4+ is the bestseller from the vhf PERFORMANCE CLASS. The four-axis wet grinding machine has been demonstrating its strength as a partner for dental laboratories and practices since 2020. In early February 2024, vhf updated the N4+ and has brought it to the latest state of the art. The dental milling machine has a new machine design and even the most demanding users are impressed with the wet processing capabilities of the device.

“We are delighted to further expand our already very successful partnership with vhf. We share the high standards that we want to offer our customers at all times, along with the constant development of our products and workflows,” says Stefan Schulz, Director Global Business Unit Clinical Prosthetics at Ivoclar.

IPS e.max CAD has inspired dental technicians and dentists for almost 20 years. The reason: clinically proven, high-strength lithium disilicate glass ceramic material with a strength of 530 MPa¹, which achieves impressive results with its natural color behavior and optimal light-optical properties. After the blocks are wet processed, the restorations are crystallized in a Programat furnace.
