Product Details Supplier Info More products

At the 2013 International Dental Show (IDS), Delcam will highlight versions of its Dentmill dental milling software tailored specifically for the production of dental restorations on the Datron D5 and Digital Dental Lab desktop machining systems.

Dentmill for Datron and Dentmill for DDL are OEM versions of Dentmill that are designed to make dental machining easier by ensuring the user is only presented with the machine kinematics, fixtures and material discs that are relevant and available.

They include machine-specific templates for the automated generation of three-axis and five-axis toolpaths for the particular piece of equipment.

The systems accurately capture implant position and orientation and allow the high-precision, multi-axis milling of customised abutments, implant bridges and dental bars.

IDS will take place in Germany on 12–16 March 2013.

Products in detail

  • All three machine-specific milling systems are based on Delcam’s Powermill CAM system for high-speed and five-axis machining.
  • Dentmill 2013 includes a completely redesigned interface with a reduced number of toolbars to allow maximum screen space for toolpath generation and simulation, as well as bolder and clearer icons.
  • Automatic nesting tools position various restorations within the block, optimising efficiency of material use.
  • The ability to apply part-to-part pinning allows restorations to be nested more closely together.
  • Restorations are oriented in the optimum 3D alignment so that the most cost-effective thickness of material block can be used.
  • The materials stock management system allows the user to only select sizes of material block that are currently in stock; it then selects the fixture appropriate for that block and the machine from the library supplied with the software and applies automatically the shrinkage allowance and milling templates for the material.
  • Dedicated systems can accept data from all the main dental CAD systems or can be supplied with Delcam’s DentCAD design software.
  • The Dentmill variants can also be integrated closely with Delcam’s Ordermanager workflow management software.

Delcam supplies software and services that help manufacturing companies to maximise their profitability by increasing productivity, improving quality and reducing lead times. The company is the world's largest specialist supplier of computer-aided machining software, with its PowerMILL, FeatureCAM, Partmaker and ArtCAM programs making up the most comprehensive range of CAM systems from any developer.

This broad selection allows Delcam to offer a CAM system capable of machining virtually any product, in any material on any type of equipment. Delcam also develops product design, tooling design and quality control programs. The unique Tribrid Modelling approach to design incorporates solid modelling, surface modelling and triangle modelling in a single program, enabling complete design and reverse engineering projects to be undertaken without transferring data between software.

Delcam's Powerinspect offers fast, reliable comparison of parts, prototypes and tooling against CAD data on all types of inspection equipment and even on machine tools. This versatility has made it the world's leading hardware-independent inspection software. Related programs are available for checking machine tool set-up and part location. Delcam software is used in over 80 countries worldwide by around 40,000 organisations, from large multi-nationals to small sub-contractors, in industries including aerospace, automotive, dental, engineering, footwear, medical and toolmaking.
