Enrico Steger, MDT

Enrico Steger is the inventor of the manual milling machine for the production of zirconium dental prostheses. After five years of High School at the Institute for Dental Technicians in Bolzano/South Tyrol and various jobs as a dental technician throughout Europe, in 1981 he set up his own dental laboratory. In 2003 Steger had a revolutionary idea to develop a manual milling system that could be easily affordable for any dental technician. So the manual zirconium milling machine based on the functioning principle of the pantograph was born. That year, he made a prototype of the machine and, to ensure the perfect adaptability of crowns and bridges, he fine-tuned a complete system including blocks of in-house produced zirconium, milling machines and sintering kilns.
