New Optional Accessories for DWX-4

Roland DG Enhances DWX-4 Compact Dental Mill with New Optional Accessories

Sydney, Australia, February 14, 2014 - Roland DG Corporation, a leading worldwide provider of dental CAD/CAM technologies, 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.

As the industry's most compact 4-axis dental milling machine, the DWX-4 is an easy-to-use, precise, on-demand production platform for digital dentistry. The addition of the optional 4-position ATC allows the DWX-4 to support up to four different tool sizes for highly precise unattended milling of custom dental prosthetics such as crowns, copings and bridges.

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

Measuring 340 (width) x 365 (depth) x 405mm (height), the compact 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. Open architecture by design, it integrates seamlessly into an existing workflow with commercially available dental CAD/CAM software and hardware.
