Datron has launched a new entry-level D5 dental mill that offers a manual puck change and costs about $50,000 less than their standard D5 model. “The unit is ideal for labs that mill mainly titanium products, but don’t require automatic puck changes,” said Robert Murphy, Vice President, noting that the entry-level D5 mill can be upgraded to include the automated puck changer if the lab’s needs change in the future.
The company also showcased its new 5-axis D5 LS milling machine that is equipped with Heindenhain linear scales for applications that demand the utmost accuracy, including large-span titanium and chrome cobalt implant parts. Due to its increased thermal stability, it provides consistent quality, even when there are significant ambient temperature fluctuations. With a repeatability of < 2 μm and an absolute accuracy of ± 5 μm, the D5 LS is the ideal machine for labs and milling centers wishing to produce screwed-retained indications such as titanium implant bars, individual abutments and Toronto bridges.
