Dental milling dry and wet devices

Wet or Dry? The Need for Both Dental Milling Machines

Roland DGA recently announced the release of the DWX-4W, our company’s first wet-milling machine. It was added to the Roland family of dental milling devices in answer to our lab and dental users need for a wet-milling option to handle many of the new brands and materials such as IPS e.max®. The DWX-4W fills a gap in many dental restoration workflows, giving laboratories the added flexibility of milling glass ceramic, lithium disilicate and composite resin materials that are becoming increasingly popular in the industry due to their high translucency, increased flexural strength and hardness, and overall aesthetic value for inlay/onlays and other smile line restorations.

Roland’s Got Teeth (Literally)

Many of you are familiar with Roland inkjets, but you may not be aware of the “other” side of our business which is responsible for some pretty unique applications from 3D milling, scanning and impact printing technologies. The latest Roland innovation in this space is aimed at the dental market. That might surprise you, but actually, the benchtop milling machines Roland DWX-50 5-Axis Dental Milling Machinewe’ve been perfecting over the last 30-years, primarily for engineers and product designers to prototype 3D models in wax, plastics, wood and a variety of other materials, transition beautifully into Digital Dental Mills, carving out dental prosthetics from a special ceramic called Zirconia (yes, a variant of Cubic Zirconia). Zirconia, a material biologically compatible with the human body and stronger (many times over) than our own teeth, is becoming very popular in the dental industry, however, it can’t be manufactured with their traditional methods (ei. precious metal & lost wax casting). Instead it requires a mill to shape the crown, bridge or coping.

Here’s one such example.
