Ivoclar Vivadent introduces the PrograMill PM7 milling system, the most robust milling system in the PrograMill lineup.

A 970 Watt spindle, 5-axis dynamics, and high speed servomotors allow for continuous and expedient milling of any product from the Ivoclar Digital materials portfolio. In support of high volume production, the PrograMill PM7 holds up to (8) 98.5 mm discs or (48) blocks such as IPS e.max® lithium disilicate, and further features a 20-position tool holder with automatic tool changing. Additionally, changeover between wet grinding and dry milling is completely hands-off, and integrated ionizer combined with "active air" suction serve to minimize the buildup of debris.

The PrograMill PM7 features the new PrograMill CAM software designed to produce simple and reliable workflows in the dental lab. PrograMill CAM accepts the STL file format or, in conjunction with 3Shape scanners, the proprietary time-saving CAM5 format. Using the CAM5 output, the PrograMill CAM software automatically reads material type, restoration type, axis of insertion, margins, and provides an appropriate milling strategy with minimal user interaction. When interacting directly with the CNC software, a 10.1" touchscreen provides a friendly and informative user interface for information on all current and pending jobs, as well as any needs such as tool or filter replacement.

Training programs for new owners will continue through 2018 at the Ivoclar Vivadent International Center for Dental Education in Amherst, NY.
