IVOCLAR VIVADENT - Furnace Programat

Medical products



"Modern. Intuitive. Smart. With one goal: to meet your requirements in the dental laboratory. Thanks to proven technologies, such as the infrared function, combined with new features, the new Programat firing furnace is your personal specialist. And your companion." (Source: Ivoclar Website, https://www.ivoclar.com/de_de/products/equipment/programat-brennoefen)

The user interface is at the heart of medical devices. The latest touch screen technology is combined with membrane keypads and rotary pushbuttons so that the user can operate the device easily. Modern screens visualize functional content and pictograms in a self-explanatory way. However, the trick is not just to make the most of the technical possibilities, but to offer a menu and interaction structure that is as intuitive and error-proof as possible. It is strictly based on the results of an analysis of the actual operating sequences and use cases.

One example of this approach is the new generation of dental furnaces from Ivoclar Vivadent AG in Schaan, Liechtenstein. BUSSE Design+Engineering supported the manufacturer with the design:

  • Menu structure
  • Graphic design
  • Icons
  • Product design
  • Interface design
  • Mechanical design
  • Model making
  • Prototypes
