Roland DWX-50 Milling Machine has been the one of the most successful mills ever introduced to the dental lab community. The compact design, clean, quiet operation, and precision machining of copings, crowns and bridges. The DWX-50 streamlines the production process with 5-axis simultaneous machining capability and a 5-station automatic tool changer. At CAP we have integrated a CAM strategy that uses a 0.3 mm tool and developed strategies to mill the most complex geometries needed. This provides highly detailed anatomy on both single units and the most complex cases. An integrated air blower system aids with difficult to machine materials, such as PMMA or zirconia, along with 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. While there are numerous dental milling machines in the marketplace, only the DWX Series delivers the advanced features the market demands at an attractive price point – backed by Roland’s proven reliability and legendary support.
The next generation of dry milling.
The DWX-51D is the latest update to the DWX-50, which became the leading dry-milling machine in the U.S market in 2014. It encompasses technological advancements and a 5-axis system that maximizes performance and ease of use. The DWX-51D is compatible with 98.5mm discs and is capable of milling zirconia, PMMA, PEEK, composite resin, wax, and gypsum. This versatile mill is also capable of milling up to 9 pin-type blocks simultaneously.
The DWX-52DC offers dental laboratories the opportunity to be more productive in their current milling environment. With the addition of an automatic disc changer and its ability to hold up to 6 adapters, laboratories now can enjoy the privilege of running jobs continuously and unattended, throughout the day, night or over the weekend. Now users have the opportunity to choose their setup:
• Working with multiple shades/translucencies of zirconia material
• Working with various types of materials (zirconia, composite resins, fiber reinforced resins, PMMA, etc.)
• Increased productivity with multiple adapter changer
• 5-axis simultaneous machining with fifteen housing units on the Automatic Tool Changer
• User-friendly functions adopted from previous DWX series models
• A cleaning tool to remove additional material waste
Material adapters are stored in the same place after all jobs are completed. If pin-based materials are desired, an additional pin clamp can be used along with the adapter for efficient milling. The chamber holds up to 6 adapters that can be interchanged between jobs automatically and enable the milling of several jobs simultaneously. Users also have the ability to remove any disk inside the adapter chamber while other jobs are in motion.
With previous DWX series mills, the air pressure would need to be manually adjusted for each material. Now the air pressure can be controlled by the material selected in the CAM software. Users need to have at least 0.2 MPa of air pressure to use the functionality. Currently there are only two CAM platforms with the ability to automatically control the air pressure (Millbox and Follow-Me!). Air compressors are not bundled with the mill and must be purchased as a separate accessory.
The DWX-52DC now houses 15 burs and a cleaning tool. Intelligent Tool Controls, a Vpanel software update which allows the ability to swap out burs automatically when they reach their life span, and additional housing units all provide an opportunity to automatically manage burs for everyday use or interchange diamond and hybrid burs for special jobs.
Keeping up with the adapter and the jobs milled on the adapter is now easier than ever. The DWX-52DC provides a barcode on each adapter which allows the user to easily track the jobs on each disk based on their setup in the CAM software. In turn, removing milled units while the disk rests in the adapter will ensure no manual placement needs to be done when reinserting partially-used disks, allowing users to be more efficient when working to conserve material.
Material waste can be a big deal when removing materials and cleaning out the remaining waste. The DWX-52DC comes with a 16th slot dedicated for the cleaning tool. It removes up to 98% of material waste from milled units and can be done automatically. It takes a little less than 1-minute to remove all the material waste around each unit, depending on the size of the restoration. This functionality is only available through two CAM platforms at the current time (Millbox and Follow-Me!).
The DWX-52DC offers a simplified spindle replacement, allowing for a remote service technician to guide the user through the spindle replacement, saving money and time over the long-term use of the mill.
The DWX-52DC come with features to help aid the process of inserting material, adapters, burs, and performing basic maintenance. The storage drawer makes it easy for the user to keep track of all these items during or after milling.
