Sintering and Glazing with CEREC CEREC SpeedFire
Full contour zirconia restorations in one session
CEREC SpeedFire is the smallest and fastest sintering furnace on the market and can typically sinter a crown in 10 to 15 minutes. The advantages of full-contour zirconia can thus also be used for chairside treatment. If required, a glaze can be applied with the CEREC SpeedGlaze that can be fired in just a few minutes in the CEREC SpeedFire.
Besides CEREC Zirconia, CEREC SpeedFire can as well process partner materials, such as IPS e.max CAD (Ivoclar Vivadent) or Suprinity PC (VITA Zahnfabrik).
The CEREC software sends the order with all the necessary information to the furnace.
allows unparalleled short sintering and firing times.
typically required for sintering a full-contour zirconia crown.

Frequently Asked Questions regarding sintering and glazing with CEREC
During sintering, fine-grained ceramic or metallic materials are heated up at a temperature below the melting temperature of the main components. The shape of the workpiece remains intact. The material condenses and shrinks. A green body is formed which solidifies by temperature. The sintered product only then gets its final properties such as hardness, strength or temperature conductivity. The sintering shrinkage is taken into account during the construction of the restoration – the workpiece is milled larger by the shrinkage factor.
The induction furnace CEREC SpeedFire combines the processes of sintering and glazing in one compact, user-friendly device. This makes it possible to use all the strengths of zirconium dioxide also for a chairside treatment.The CEREC SpeedFire reaches a maximum heating rate of 300 ° C per minute – no preheating or holding temperatures are necessary. Its induction technology ensures a perfectly homogeneous temperature distribution.
The extremely short sintering times are determined by the dry milling of the pre-sintered material. A drying process of several hours is not necessary. Its dimensions make the CEREC SpeedFire a compact device that fits in any practice.
CEREC SpeedFire can process CEREC Zirconia as well as CEREC Zirconia meso, CELTRA DUO, and all CEREC Blocs. Furthermore, the furnace is authorised to process IPS.emax CAD (by Ivoclar Vivadent) and VITA Suprinity (by VITA Zahnfabrik).
