Amann Girrbach Launches Ceramill® DNA Generation
Posted Jan 10, 2017 in Industry News
"With the introduction of the Ceramill DNA Generation, we’re having the biggest product launch in Amann Girrbach’s history,” says Georg Eickhoff, President of Amann Girrbach North America. “This new generation carries more of the Amann Girrbach DNA than any previous generation as we are manufacturing the circuit boards in-house, enabling the mills to think more dental than ever before.”
The line features a completely new processing strategy: the Carving Mode that cuts off excess material as a whole rather than grinding down the blank to the actual geometry. “This reduces not only the grinding times for difficult-to-process materials such as glass-ceramics by up to 60%, but also reduces wear of tools and mill components,” says Eickhoff.
In addition, a powerful spindle with up to 100,000 revolutions per minute has been added to the wet and hybrid mills of the Ceramill DNA Generation; it offers highly efficient milling and grinding processes for hybrid ceramics and lithium disilicate.
The product launch ranges from mills to updates on the scanner, updated software modules (including a Reax module for creating full arch zirconia hybrids) as well as materials. The new equipment portfolio includes:
- Ceramill Mikro 4-axis, a dry mill mainly designed for processing zirconia, wax, PMMA, soft metal and hybrid ceramics.
- Ceramill Mikro 5-axis offers additional dry milling indications such as splints, bars and implant bridges.
- Ceramill Mikro IC, a wet mill mainly designed for glass ceramics and titanium abutment blanks; it can also wet mill zirconia and PMMA.
- Ceramill Motion 2 is a five-axis, dry/wet mill for an almost unlimited range of materials and indications.
- Ceramill Map400 scanner features updated software, much quicker scan times (2x speed) and more convenient handling. Highly sensitive 3D sensors provide a precise image of the model and a large measuring field enables quick, efficient scanning of stone models using only two axes, which greatly reduces the scan times.
