Advanced Features Make for Error Proof Production
The DWX-50 is Roland’s most advanced dental milling machine to date. Developed expressly for the production of dental prosthetics, the easy to use DWX-50 features a 5-axis simultaneous machining capability and a 5-station automatic tool changer with tool length sensor that lend to the convenience factor by fully automating the production process.
5-Axis Simultaneous Machining
The DWX-50 features 5-axis simultaneous machining, milling on X,Y, Z axes and rotating the blocks and discs of material 360 degrees in both clockwise and counterclockwise movements. This also allows for materials to be tilted forward and backward 20 degrees to support complex cuts.
Five station Automatic Tool Changer
The five station Automatic Tool Changer with a tool length sensor enables the user to run multiple tools for one job, or to run an entire disc unattended. Instead of inspecting finished pieces to determine if everything was milled correctly, the integrated tool diagnostics feature will notify users if a tool was broken prior to completion, resulting in reduced waste. Using the tool length sensor, the automatic tool changer will also verify that a tool was properly placed back in the magazine, preventing mechanical failures.
Clean Cutting Area Lends to Precision
Equipped with an integrated air blower system that aids with difficult-to-machine materials, such as zirconia and PMMA, the DWX-50 also features a built-in dust collection tray that can be easily connected to any lab vacuum system, keeping the cutting area clean and free of debris.
Virtual Machine Panel
The DWX-50 features Roland’s legendary Virtual Machine Panel or VPanel for short. Serving as the main operation panel for the DWX-50, the VPanel allows the user to automatically start the milling process or manually reposition the tools, clamp or quickly set origin points, all from their computer desktop. The VPanel is also equipped with an easily accessible hour meter to keep track of overall machine time for maintenance purposes.
Open Design for Easy Integration
Built on open technology, the DWX-50 is G-Code compatible and supports a wide range of software and tools, allowing for easy integration with any commercially available dental prosthetic production solution. It can take industry standard materials as disks or blocks.
Roland DWX series dental mills are capable of producing a variety of dental restorations from a wide range of materials with high precision. The DWX-50 dental CAD/CAM milling machine features 5-axis simultaneous milling and a 5-station automatic tool changer for unattended milling of standard 98 mm discs and blocks including:
- Wax for lost-wax castings of gold or leucite
- Porcelain for PFM (porcelain-fused-to-metals such as alumina)
- e.max PRESS ceramic
- VITA ENAMIC hybrid ceramic
- 3M ESPE Ultimate CAD/CAM Restorative nano ceramic resin
For permanent restorations that completely cover a tooth or dental implant, strength, margins and aesthetics are key considerations. With 5-axis simultaneous milling and 5-station automatic tool changer, the DWX-50 can easily mill 25 to 30 crowns overnight from a single disc of zirconia, wax or PMMA. You can also mill precision crowns from newer ceramic materials that don’t require sintering, including standard blocks of VITA ENAMIC hybrid ceramic or 3M ESPE Ultimate CAD/CAM Restorative nano ceramic resin.
Coping refers to that part of a crown that covers the prepared tooth and can be easily milled by the DWX-50 dental CAD/CAM milling machine from wax or plastic for casting, or from a thin ceramic material to which porcelain is applied.
The DWX-50 can mill bridges of any size from wax, PMMA or zirconia, VITA ENAMIC or 3M ESPE Ultimate CAD/CAM Restorative.
A bar connects two implant abutments and requires the ability to produce a flat surface. With its 5-station automatic tool changer, the DWX-50 mills bars from zirconia for outstanding strength and precision.
An abutment is a tooth that supports a bridge or partial denture. The DWX-50 is capable of milling a variety of abutments including hybrid, screw, glue-based, etc., from a variety of restorative materials.
Inlays and Onlays
Indirect inlays (intracoronal fillings) and Onlays (cusp fillings) can be milled from wax for casting metal, or from porcelain, zirconia or composite materials. With its 5-station automatic tool changer, the DWX-50 dental CAD/CAM milling machine provides the ability to produce required sharp angles from small tools.
A Pontic is that part of a fixed bridge that is suspended between abutments and replaces a missing tooth. The 5-axis simultaneous milling and 5-station tool changer allows the DWX-50 to perform the precision undercuts required.
The DWX-50 quickly mills gradient temporary crowns and bridges from PMMA that are designed to maintain esthetics, stability and function while a permanent prosthesis is manufactured.
Also known as occlusal splints, bite planes or night guards, bite splints are removable dental appliances precision molded from plastic to fit the upper or lower arches of teeth.
