Roland DGA has announced that two of its milling machines, the DWX-51D and the DWX-4W, are now certified to work with VITA SUPRINITY, VITA ENAMIC and VITABLOCS Mark II materials.
Roland DGA Corporation announced that its latest DWX-51D and DWX-4W dental mills have been validated by VITA Zahnfabrik H. Rauter GmbH & Co. KG (Germany) for use with VITA’s dental prosthetic materials, including VITA ENAMIC®, VITA SUPRINITY®* and VITABLOCS® Mark II.
“Dental materials from VITA, including hybrid ceramic and glass ceramic type materials, are becoming increasingly popular with dental technicians, dentists and their patients due to their superb aesthetic appearance, strength and shortened processing time required,” says Brian Brooks, senior dental product manager for Roland DGA Corp. “The certification provides not only an endorsement for the excellent accuracy and quality of dental prosthetics produced with our milling machines, but also peace of mind to our customers and prospects that our devices meet the high quality standards set by VITA.”

The certification has been given for milling VITA ENAMIC® with the DWX-51D equipped with ZDB-100D/50D/30D milling burs developed specifically for milling dental hybrid type materials. Introduced in 2015, the DWX-51D 5-axis dry mill is capable of producing copings, crowns, full bridges and abutments and other prosthetics from materials such as zirconia, wax, PMMA, composite resin, PEEK and gypsum. Also launched in 2015, the DWX-4W, Roland’s first wet mill, is now certified to mill VITA ENAMIC®, VITA SUPRINITY® and VITABLOCS® Mark II. The DWX-4W is designed for milling glass ceramics and composite resins, featuring 4-axis milling and a 4-station automatic tool changer.

“Our DWX series dental mills were purposely built using an open architecture design in order to integrate into an existing workflow with commercially available dental CAD/CAM software and hardware,” Brooks notes. “This feature allows us to partner with exciting dental companies like VITA to ensure that our customers always have access to the latest, most advanced prosthetic materials rather than being locked in to a single source.”

Matt O’Connell, president of VITA North America adds, “We are thrilled to partner with Roland DGA by providing cutting-edge CAD/CAM restorative materials that take full advantage of the advanced technology that Roland DG has developed.”
VITA ENAMIC® is a hybrid ceramic material designed to combine the high load capacity and esthetics of a dental ceramic with the elasticity of a composite. It is finished without firing, which reduces labor and production time. VITA SUPRINITY® is high-strength, zirconia-reinforced glass ceramic engineered to exhibit high load capacity. It also reportedly boasts brilliant esthetics based on integrated translucency, opalescence and fluorescence. VITABLOCS® Mark II is a feldspathic glass ceramic with more than 25 years of clinical experience.
VITABLOCS Mark II
Roland DGA will be demonstrating the DWX-51D and the DWX-4W milling VITA prosthetic materials at LMT Lab Day, February 26 and 27, in Chicago, Illinois. Interested attendees can also take advantage of free continuing education clinics given by Roland DGA and VITA while gaining CE scientific credits for attending.
