Roland DGA: Japan-based Roland has been selling its DWX-30 and DWX-50 Dental Milling Machines through a network of dealers. Its DWX-50 mills wax, zirconium and PMMA and is capable of five-axis simultaneous machining to achieve complex cuts. It features a five-station automatic tool changer with tool-length sensor, built-in dust collection tray for easy connection to any vacuum system and an innovative clamping system that securely holds a wide variety of materials. User Mark Jackson, Co-Owner and Vice President of Precision Ceramics Dental Laboratory in Montclair, CA, appreciates the machine for its low maintenance requirements, small footprint and efficient work area. He also praises the spindle collet that's sized to match other industrial milling equipment. "The common spindle collet size means we can cycle our burs through a variety of applications," says Jackson. "It's a nice feature that lets us maximize our efficiency." Roland's other dental mill, the DWX-30, is a four-axis machine that mills wax and zirconia and features three types of clamps—one for disks and two for blocks—making it easy to securely hold a wide variety of materials. Both Roland dental mills are open systems that work with scanners such as 3Shape, Dental Wings and I-Metric along with CAM software such as SUM 3D and Dentmill. The 5th axis on the DWX-50 and 4th axis on the DWX-30 are synchronous, allowing the machine to position the material in any axis simultaneously. This is a unique feature for machines in this price range. The DWX series is available through authorized Roland dealers. For details, call 800-542-2307 or visit www.rolanddga.com.
