      Just read online this morning that Ivoclar bought Sagemax. Article said that they intend to run it as a separate company.

      When you think of Ivocar ,you don't think 'great zirc product' . They really need to step their game up (this is a good start ) .

      You're not fooling any of us, we know you are the wallet behind Ivoclar.

      I guess next they will try to buy Exocad so they can nail-down the software market.

      From on high, I have heard that ivoclar will not be supporting their product. This is not ivoclar acquiring R&D or a better product, thats why it will be run seperately, theyre standing on the oxygen line, as it were, of their biggest competitor.

      By the time they do, everyone will be on to the next thing. FDA hoops to jump through I imagine.. I also think the smaller mfgs arent as well equipped at producing a large amount of product. Id rather get good product and wait, then be a test dummy.

      I thought this would happen. I heard rumor of it, they would not get replacement liquids for the Nexxzir Plus, and things were just different around there the last several months.
      Maybe they will take the Nexxzir Plus multi layer to what it had potential to be.

      Would be nice, but I don't think theyre are going to mix colors here, I think they don't want the product, just the looming corporate control..

      In the not so distant future, less than 10 years or so, the majority of the dental lab market will be dominated by vertically integrated companies. The Glidewell model comes to mind with their new service oriented local lab operations "Crown World".
      Just imagine, Dentsply, Ivocalar, Glidewell,??, all with local dental lab services and vertically integrated from materials to chair side milling.

      Whats next? Ivoclar to buy National Dentex. That would be awesome!Hmmmm2

      It's the middle of the end for most labs.
