DWX-4 compact dental mill

DWX-4 Dental Milling System Applications

Roland DWX series dental mills are capable of producing a variety of dental restorations from a wide range of materials with high precision.  The DWX-4  features 4-axis simultaneous milling and a 2-station automatic tool changer for unattended milling of standard blocks  and pin-type materials.  An optional 4-position automatic tool changer supports up to four tools of varying sizes while the optional multi-pin clamp allows you to mill up to four different pin-type materials simultaneously.


  • Wax for lost-wax castings of gold or leucite
  • Porcelain for PFM (porcelain-fused-to-metals such as alumina)
  • Zirconia
  • PMMA
  • e.max PRESS ceramic
  • VITA ENAMIC hybrid ceramic
  • 3M ESPE Ultimate CAD/CAM Restorative nano ceramic resin


For permanent restorations that completely cover a tooth or dental implant, strength, margins and aesthetics are key considerations. With 4-axis simultaneous milling and a 2 or 4-station automatic tool changer, the DWX-4 can mill a single crown in approximately 20 minutes from zirconia, wax or PMMA. You can also mill precision crowns from newer ceramic materials that don’t require sintering, including standard blocks of VITA ENAMIC hybrid ceramic.


Coping refers to that part of a crown that covers the prepared tooth and can be easily milled by the DWX-4 from wax or plastic for casting, or from a thin ceramic material to which porcelain is applied.


The DWX-4 can mill small bridges from wax, PMMA or zirconia, VITA ENAMIC or 3M ESPE Ultimate CAD/CAM Restorative.


An abutment is a tooth that supports a bridge or partial denture. The DWX-4 is capable of milling a variety of abutments including hybrid, screw, glue-based, etc., from a variety of restorative materials.

Inlays and Onlays

Indirect inlays (intracoronal fillings) and Onlays (cusp fillings) can be milled from wax for casting metal, or from porcelain, zirconia or composite materials. With its optional 4-station automatic tool changer, the DWX-4 provides the ability to produce the required sharp angles from small tools.


A Pontic is that part of a fixed bridge that is suspended between abutments and replaces a missing tooth. Four-axis simultaneous milling and the optional 4-station tool changer allow  the DWX-4  to perform the precision undercuts required.


The DWX-4 quickly mills gradient temporary crowns and small bridges from PMMA that are designed to maintain esthetics, stability and function while a permanent prosthesis is manufactured.
