Roland DGA Corp. has introduced two new optional accessories that enhance the production process for the company's DWX-4 compact dental mill, including a new, expanded 4-position automatic tool changer (ATC) and a multi-pin clamp.

The DWX-4 is an easy-to-use, precise, on-demand production platform for digital dentistry, said Brian Brooks, product manager for Roland DGA Corp.

These new tools enhance the DWX-4 by both expediting and automating production for more complex jobs. With the addition of the optional 4-position ATC, the DWX-4 supports up to four different tool sizes for precise unattended milling of custom dental prosthetics such as crowns, copings and bridges. 

The new multi-pin clamp allows the DWX-4 to mill up to four different pin-type materials simultaneously, accommodating differences in material composition and color. As a result, prosthetics for up to four different patients can be produced in a single production run, saving time, labor and costs.

Measuring 13 x 14 x 16 high, Roland says the DWX-4 is the ideal milling machine for labs looking to bring production in house, those just getting started in digital dentistry and established digital labs that need a backup device for urgent jobs. 

With the DWX-4, these professionals can mill a single crown or small bridge quickly, economically and to exacting specifications. 

Based on proven CNC milling technology, the DWX-4 supports a wide variety of materials, including 3M ESPE’s Lava Ultimate Restorative, zirconia, PMMA and wax. Open architecture by design, it integrates seamlessly into an existing workflow with commercially available dental CAD/CAM software and hardware.
