New Machine for CNC Milling of Zirconia for Dental Market

Rolands compact, low-cost device for subtractive rapid prototyping.

DWX-30
DWX-30 uses subtractive rapid prototyping (SRP) to cut on the top, bottom, and at +/-20 degrees for complex geometry. A tool sensor automates machine and tool setup, saving valuable time and eliminating errors. As an open platform, the DWX-30 supports all industry standard dental CAD/CAM application software.

Roland DGA, a manufacturer of systems for 3D engraving and milling, introduced the DWX-30 dental milling machine for creating copings, crowns and bridges in zirconia and wax. Roland product manager Pedro Gonzalez said the new machine is the result of more than 20 years of experience developing subtractive rapid prototyping (SRP) technologies.

“The DWX-30 is Roland’s newest compact CNC milling machine built on more than 20 years of experience in subtractive rapid prototyping (SRP) technology,” said Pedro Gonzalez, product manager for Roland. “The DWX-30 eliminates both the expense of precious metals and the complexity of casting. It is also highly affordable, allowing even small labs to invest in precision milling technology.”

Designed specifically for the dental market, the DWX-30 features an integrated clamping system and virtual panel that make it easy to create copings, crowns, and bridges from wax and zirconia. Three types of clamps are included — one for discs and two for blocks — so it’s easy to hold various material sizes and thicknesses securely.

The DWX-30 features an integrated dust collection system that completely removes debris while keeping the machine and lab environment clean. With the DWX-30, materials can be cut on the top, bottom, and at +/-20 degrees for complex geometry. A tool sensor automates machine and tool setup, saving valuable time and eliminating errors. As an open platform, the DWX-30 supports all industry standard dental CAD/CAM application software.

The DWX-30 will be offered by authorized dental industry manufacturers and distributors, and Roland DGA is currently establishing partnerships with systems integrators to create a complete production solution including the mill, scanner, and software.
