Roland Upgrades DWX-4 Compact Dental Mill with Optional Accessories
Posted on February 25, 2014
Irvine, Calif. — Roland DGA Corp., a leading provider of dental CAD/CAM technologies, has introduced two new optional accessories that enhance the production process for the company’s DWX-4 compact dental mill, including a new, expanded 4-position automatic tool changer (ATC) and a multi-pin clamp.
“As the industry’s most compact 4-axis dental milling machine, the DWX-4 is an easy-to-use, precise, on-demand production platform for digital dentistry,” said Brian Brooks, product manager for Roland DGA Corp. “These new tools enhance the DWX-4 by both expediting and automating production for more complex jobs.”
With the addition of the optional 4-position ATC, the DWX-4 supports up to four different tool sizes for highly precise unattended milling of custom dental prosthetics such as crowns, copings and bridges. The new multi-pin clamp allows the DWX-4 to mill up to four different pin-type materials simultaneously, accommodating differences in material composition and color. As a result, prosthetics for up to four different patients can be produced in a single production run, saving time, labor and costs.
Measuring 13” x 14” x 16” high, the DWX-4 is the ideal milling machine for labs looking to bring production in house, those just getting started in digital dentistry, and established digital labs that need a backup device for urgent jobs. With the DWX-4, these professionals can mill a single crown or small bridge quickly, economically and to exacting specifications. Based on proven CNC milling technology, the DWX-4 supports a wide variety of materials, including 3M ESPE’s Lava™ Ultimate Restorative, zirconia, PMMA and wax. Open architecture by design, it integrates seamlessly into an existing workflow with commercially available dental CAD/CAM software and hardware. A complete solution, the DWX-4 also comes with Roland EasyShape CAM software.
