programill-one-mill-ivoclar

The long awaited Programill One may be just around the corner. Announced 3 years ago, the chairside mill from Ivoclar Digital had a bumpy start and ultimately was pulled from released. This was due to all sorts of issues with the mill performing to standard and now these concerns have been sorted out.

So the question becomes, what makes the PrograMill One different to other mills? What is the cost? What does it mill? etc. We have summarised all available information about this new mill down below.

  • The PrograMill One is a very compact 5-axis milling machine. This means it has few limitations in regards to milling shapes. It can mill screw retained implant bridges and angled screw channels. Of course it handles standard crowns, inlays, onlays and bridges with ease too.
  • The cost of the PrograMill One is around $65,000
  •  It will mill an e.max crown in the range of 15-20 minutes. Not particularly fast but said to mill beautiful anatomy.
  • It will only mill Ivoclar Blocks. The chuck of these milling blocks differs to anything else on the market. Meaning you will be restricted to what materials are available to use on the mill. Currently this includes IPS e.max CAD, IPS Empress CAD and Tetric CAD.
  • It has an internal compressor and therefore only needs a mains power and network connection to operate. 
  • It is made to work closely with the 3Shape Software.
  • It has a 5-block magazine and can be loaded with five restorations and mill them in a row without having to touch the mill.
