Roland DGA Corp. offers an expanded line of dental milling machines with the addition of the DWX-50. The compact production tool creates precision dental prosthetics, including copings, crowns, full bridges and abutments, using zirconia, wax and PMMA.
Designed to streamline the production process, the machine features five-axis simultaneous machining capability and a five-station ATC with tool-length sensor. The milling machine is also equipped with a virtual panel to ease desktop operation, as well as a diagnostic notification system that alerts the operator of system errors or job completion. This enables dental laboratories and technicians to carry out the milling process with minimal operator intervention, the company says.
Other features include an integrated air blower system that aids with PMMA and other difficult-to-machine materials, as well as along with a built-in dust collection tray that can be connected to virtually any lab vacuum system to keep the cutting area clean and free of debris.
The milling machine supports a range of software and tools and is built on open technology to enable easy integration with any commercially available dental prosthetic production solution, the company says. Additionally, it offers multicast capability—as many as four machines connect to one computer to increase production capability.
