CEREC SpeedFire from Dentsply Sirona CAD/CAM wins 2016 Red Dot Award

Awards and accolades

The "efficient interplay between the CEREC SpeedFire's open and closed shape and rounded and straight lines" impressed the 41-member jury of the annual Red Dot Awards.

The "dramatic tension" this created led to the award for the sintering furnace in the "Life Science and Medicine" category. The award ceremony was held at the Red Dot Gala at the Aalto Theater in Essen, Germany in July.

The CEREC SpeedFire induction furnace, which has been available for five months, is part of the CEREC Zirconia workflow that now enables dentists to offer their patients chairside restorations using the high-performance zirconia material. The compact and user-friendly device combines the sintering or crystallisation process, as well as the finalisation process (glazing), making it unique on the market. Each process takes just a few minutes. A crown, for example, can be sintered in 10-15 minutes and glazed in nine minutes.

Its connection to the system provides the furnace with all the necessary information on the material, colour, type and size of restoration via the CEREC software of Dentsply Sirona CAD/CAM. Based on this information, the furnace gets the right program for the restoration. An important benefit: The intuitive handling of the software makes all processes easy - there is no need for any special training or long practice sessions. The smallest and fastest sintering furnace on the market has become very popular with dentists in just a short time with the 1000th Dentsply Sirona CEREC furnace having already been sold.

Outstanding products, design concepts, and communication designs have been awarded the globally acknowledged Red Dot Award since 1954. This year, the jury of independent designers, design professors and journalists evaluated 5,214 products from 57 countries in 31 categories. The most important criterion for awarding the coveted prize is high design quality.
