Service and repairs must be performed only by service technicians authorized by DeguDent and

Dentsply.

The Multimat 2 Touch, Touch & Press furnace must be operated using original replacement parts and accessories only. This is the only way to ensure that the performance data outlined in the Instructions for Use are met and that the device can be operated safely.

The furnace must be completely disconnected from mains when service or repair work is performed!

Exception:

The furnace can be in operative condition when performing setting or adjustment tasks.

These tasks must be performed with the utmost caution, as there is a risk of touching live components.

The insulation material used inside the furnace contains ceramic fibres. Fibre dust can be released on exchanging the muffle or the insulation.

Ceramic dust has been shown to be carcinogenic in animal experiments. Make sure to observe the precautionary measures listed in the pertinent EU Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS).

If ceramic fibres are used at temperatures above 900 °C for a longer period, silicogenic substances

(cristobalite) may form.

In certain cases, such as when exchanging the firing muffle, dust emissions may occur that may cause irritations of the skin and eyes and of the respiratory tract.

When a firing muffle has to be exchanged, always proceed as follows:

Instruct the staff to wear long-sleeved clothing. Heads must be covered and eye protection and

• gloves worn.

Connect a dust vacuum aspirator at the source of the dust. If that is not possible, provide the staff with a dusk mask of grade FFP3 or comparable.

Upon completion of the procedure, any adhering dust must first be rinsed off the unprotected skin using cold water. Only then can you wash off any residue with water and soap. Wash work clothes separately from other clothes.

Before touching any electrical components, touch a piece of blank metal to discharge any electrostatic charge.

We recommend the use of a grounding bracelet when working on electronic components. Store and ship PCBs only wrapped in antistatic material (such as aluminium foil).

Use the original packaging material if possible.

On completion of any service or repair work, the furnace must be tested as per the testing protocol outlined in Chapter 7.1.

Silver wire test

Chapter 4.1

Page 1 of 1

Rev. Index 0

Rev. Date 27 Sept 2004

Procedure:

Observe the precautions listed in chapters 1.1 and 6.1.

This test is used to check the temperature of the chamber, not to adjust the temperature to the ceramic material fired.

This test requires the silver wire test calibration kit, Order Code D 03 532 803.

The furnace must be pre-heated at 600 °C for at least one hour.

The easiest way to do this is setting the idle temperature in the Basic Set Up to 600 °C, changing to a different menu and closing the chamber.

Note: Before calibrating the temperature, the temperature offset in the Furnace Parameters menu

must be reset to zero. To do so, touch the M button, open the Furnace Parameters menu and select the Temp. offset command, then confirm the reset to zero by touching the C button.

The furnace must be connected to the pressurized air supply for the pressing rod to be in its upper position. This position is required to ensure reproducibility of the temperature test.

Use the touch firing base for the purposes of this test.

Once the furnace has been pre-heated, start the special silver wire test program.

This is done either by touching Porcelain Type – Special Programs – Silver wire calibration or by calling the silver wire test directly by touching the R button and entering 475.

• Open the chamber.

• Insert the silver wire into the wire carrier and place it in the middle of the firing base.

• Start the silver wire test program.

• If the upper half of the silver wire shows signs of melting in the upper third, i.e. if a bead of molten silver has formed on the surface of the wire, the temperature is correct to within ±2°C.

• If the surface of the silver wire does not show any signs of melting, the firing temperature is too low.

In this case you would repeat the testing program while increasing the chamber temperature by 3 C at a time until the desired melting effect is seen on the surface of the silver wire.

• If the silver wire has melted to a clump, the firing temperature is too high. In this case you would repeat the testing program with new silver wide and while decreasing the chamber temperature by 3

°C at a time until the desired melting effect is seen on the surface of the silver wire.

• Once the correct melting temperature has been reached, touch the Silver field. The temperature offset is stored in memory.

• This completes the adjustment of the chamber temperature.

Vacuum test

Chapter 4.2

Page 1 of 1

Rev. Index 0

Rev. Date 27 Sept 2004

Procedure:

Observe the precautions listed in chapters 1.1 and 6.1.

Vacuum test

Used to check the furnace for leaks.

Note: The firing base must be located inside the chamber.

• Touch the M button.

• Touch Furnace Parameters.

• Touch Vacuum test.

• The position of the chamber is of no consequence. The chamber will close, and the vacuum pump will start operating.

• The vacuum should be brought down to 40 hPa, whereupon the vacuum pump will be turned off.

• The vacuum will be held, and the Test successfully completed message will appear in the display.

• Confirm the message by touching the C button.

• If the required vacuum level is not attained, detach the pump’s vacuum line at the furnace, shorten it by 1 cm and reattach it.

• Repeat the vacuum test.

• Watch the vacuum on the display. If it still is not brought down to 40 hPa, completely kink in the vacuum line so that the pressure cannot be decreased. Watch the display.

• If the existing vacuum is maintained, the vacuum pump is not strong enough to create the required vacuum.

• If the pressure increases, there is a leak inside the furnace.

• Clean the firing base carrier seal or replace as appropriate.

• Check the magnetic valve and clean or replace as appropriate (see 6.11, Replacing the magnetic

valve).

• Replace the seals of the connecting bolts (thermo couple and heating muffle).

Disassembly is described in Chapter 6.5, Replacing the firing muffle.

Setting and checking the toothed belt tension

Simple instructions for accessing and adjusting the toothed belt tension in Multimat 2 Touch/Touch &

Press furnaces in which the toothed belt tension set screw is freely accessible rather than being covered by a label.

The furnace should be in a cold condition:

• Move the upper part of the furnace to the upper terminal position.

• Remove the firing base from the firing base carrier.

• Use a vacuum cleaner to remove any ceramic dust from the firing base carrier.

• Detach all connections to the furnace.

• Lay the furnace on its back.

• Move the upper part of the furnace against the upper stop to release the tension on the toothed belt.

• With light finger pressure, press one side of the toothed belt from the outside inward. If the belt has the right tension, it should be possible to press it inward by about 10 mm. If this is not possible, the tension of the toothed belt is too high. In this case, proceed as described below.

• Use the enclosed internal hex key to turn the toothed belt tension set screw counterclockwise until it is possible to push the cog belt from the outside inward by about 10 mm.

Note:

The toothed belt tension set screw may be secured with a locking varnish. In this case, turning the set screw can be somewhat difficult.

The correct toothed belt tension has now been restored.

• To mark the new position of the toothed belt tension set screw, draw a short line across the column cover plate and the set screw. This lets you check the setting whenever you want.

• Restore function in reverse order, see Chapters 6. 5. 4 and 2.

Column cover plate

If the cylinder screw is detached from the belt tension sheet, use a screwdriver to press the toothed lock washer toward the screw from below.

On completion of any service or repair work, the furnace must be tested as per the testing

protocol outlined in Chapter 7.1.

Procedure:

Observe the precautions listed in chapters 1.1 and 6.1.

The pressing module upgrade kit (Order Code D03050010) is used to upgrade the Multimat 2 Touch to a Multimat 2 Touch & Press. The kit contains all the components required for this upgrade. The upgrading process is described below.

Observe the dust protection precautions listed in Chapter 1.1.

• Move the upper part of the furnace to the upper terminal position and remove the firing base.

• Disconnect the furnace from mains.

• Unscrew the lid of the vacuum vessel and disconnect the protective earth wire from the lid.

• Loosen the lower mounting screws of the vacuum vessel (four slotted cylinder screws and the two front hexed cylinder screws.

• Slightly loosen the third and central hexed cylinder screw so it protrudes somewhat.

• Tilt the vacuum vessel slightly backward while pulling it forward. This will pull the vacuum vessel off the bolt.

• Lift the vacuum vessel and disconnect the vacuum hose, muffle, thermo couple, and protective earth.

• Lift the vacuum vessel out of the upper part of the furnace.

• Remove the control unit. See instructions in Chapter 6.2, Replacing the control unit.

• Remove the I/O PCB. See instructions in Chapter 6.3, Replacing the I/O PCB (interface)

• Cover the power supply PCB with a cloth so no filings can fall on or into the PCB. Consider removing the power supply PCB. See instructions in Chapter 6.4, Replacing the power supply.

• Break out the aperture for the pressurized-air connector (directly above the vacuum hose connector). Clean the edges and remove any flash.

• Install the connection hardware for the pressurized-air inlet. The respective fastener nut is located on the outside of the lower part of the furnace.

• Attach the “max. 2.7 bar” label above the pressurized-air inlet.

• Thread the control wire for the pressing module through the left support hole, from top to bottom, so that 45 cm of the control wire (with connector) remain in the upper part of the furnace.

• Thread the pressurised-air hose for the pressing module through the right support hole, so that 33 cm of the hose remain in the upper part of the furnace. Connect the control wire and pressurised-air hose to the existing lines/tubes using a cable tie.
