The company offers a line of milling tools developed for the field of dental prosthetics manufacturing that are made of carbide construction, and cutting geometries and coatings have been engineered specifically for use with today’s dental materials.
 
The tool line consists of solid carbide ballnose and torus end mills, which are designed for optimum machining of zirconium oxide, PMMA, wax, cobalt chrome, and titanium—the most commonly used materials in making dental prosthetics. Both types of cutters have a radius tolerance of as much as ± 0.005 mm and a diameter tolerance of 0.01 mm. Solid carbide ballnose end mills are especially useful for roughing and finishing, and their optimized geometry provides more stability in long reach applications. The tapered neck ballnose end mills provide more rigidity against deflection and are optimal for finishing and rest material machining. Torus end mills are available with two or four flutes with a variety of coatings including TiAlN, which protects the tool from premature wear when machining non-precious metal alloys, CrN, which prevents the material from sticking to the cutting edge of the tool when milling PMMA and wax, and a diamond coating, which ensures extremely long tool life when machining zirconium oxide.

Turret Added to Five-Axis Bar-Fed Milling Machine

This bar-fed mill features a nine-station turret in addition to a five-axis milling spindle. That way, turning can be performed on the bar while the milling spindle performs backworking on a parted-off workpiece.
