inCoris cobalt chrome sintered metal disks now available for inLab MC X5

New Products

Non-precious metal restorations still play a key role in the day-to-day life of a dental technician - according to estimates from Dentsply Sirona CAD/CAM, they contribute to around 65-75% of all work produced around the globe. However, the conventional manufacturing process, the NPM cast, is a more expensive and time-consuming production process that is more susceptible to error due to the number of steps necessary. Integration in the digital workflow has provided an alternative approach for cobalt-chromium restorations that is faster, cleaner and safer. Additionally, the material is more homogeneous and stable compared to cast work.


With the introduction of the new inCoris CCB disk, Dentsply Sirona can now provide the dental laboratory with a pre-sintered, non-precious metal for the inLab MC X5 5-axis milling unit. The disk with a standard size of Ø 98.5 mm is available in six different heights and can be very easily managed via the inLab MC X5's own inLab CAM Software 16.0. As with all the other inCoris disks from Dentsply Sirona, each inCoris CCB blank has a QR code that can be conveniently scanned into the CAM software with a webcam. All material information such as disk name, colour, height, lot no., enlargement factor and other information is thus automatically included in the workpiece overview. Disks that have been partially machined can be found again later in the software via the same QR code. Users save valuable input time and always have an optimal overview of their available inCoris disk inventory.

After the milling process, the NPM restoration is sintered in a protected argon atmosphere to achieve its final strength without any inclusions or voids. The prerequisite for this is the inFire HTC speed sintering furnace with the metal sintering option from Dentsply Sirona, which is already equipped with an integrated gas management system. All inCoris materials can be quickly and directly controlled via the preset programs. Existing customers with an inFire HTC speed without the metal sintering option can have this subsequently installed, depending on the serial number of their sintering furnace.
