Feb. 24, 2011
Advanced 3-D milling technology supports complex geometry for copings, crowns, bridges, and abutments.
IRVINE, California--Roland DGA has expanded aline of dental milling machines with the addition of the DWX-50. To read more about Roland, go to Roland.Roland’s most advanced dental milling machine to date, the compact and easy-to-use DWX-50 is an advanced five-axis production tool for creating precision dental prosthetics. This includes copings, crowns, full bridges, and abutments using esthetically preferred zirconia, wax, and PMMA.Designed to streamline the production process, the DWX-50 features five-axis simultaneous machining capability and a five-station automatic tool changer with tool length sensor for added production convenience. The milling machine is also equipped with a virtual panel for easy desktop operation, as well as a diagnostic notification system that alerts the operator of system errors or job completion, enabling dental laboratories and technicians to carry out the milling process with minimal operator intervention. “Until now, investing in advanced dental milling technology has been cost prohibitive for many labs and technicians,” said Pedro Gonzalez, Roland product manager for 3D milling and scanning products. “The DWX-50 is powerful, yet affordable, making it easy for professionals to add a state-of-the-art five-axis mill to their lab.” Other key features include an integrated air blower system that aids with difficult to machine materials, such as PMMA, along with a built-in dust collection tray that can be easily connected to any lab vacuum system. This keeps the cutting area clean and free of debris. The DWX-50 supports a range of software and tools and is built on open technology, allowing for easy integration with any commercially available dental prosthetic production solution. Additionally, the DWX-50 offers multicast capability, making it possible to connect up to four machines to one computer. This enables dental laboratories to increase production capability at a fraction of the cost.
