Delcam has released a new version of its Dentmill for Roland dental milling software tailored specifically for the production of crowns and bridges in zirconia, wax and PMMA on the Roland DXW-50 desktop machining system. Delcam has also released a related program, Dentmill for Roland Express, which supports the Roland DWX-4 machine.

Both programs are based on the 2014 R2 release of Delcam’s Dentmill milling software, with the addition of dedicated templates for the automated generation of machining procedures specifically for the Roland equipment, plus libraries of tooling and fixturing.  

Dentmill for Roland supports both the five-axis and three-axis capabilities of the DWX-50, whereas Dentmill for Roland Express provides three-axis toolpaths for the DWX-4.

Dentmill for Roland benefits from the many strengths of Dentmill. These include a range of advanced strategies that offer smoother machining to give the best possible surface finish, plus flexible five-axis techniques that can produce even the most complex restorations quickly and accurately. 

For both programs, background processing capabilities mean that toolpath calculations can be started on the first items added to the block while the remaining restorations are still being positioned. This technology also allows work to be undertaken simultaneously on a number of projects. Both capabilities can reduce the overall calculation times significantly for a series of restorations.

Key features and enhancements

  • Dentmill for Roland supports both the five-axis and three-axis capabilities of the DWX-50, while Dentmill for Roland Express provides three-axis toolpaths for the DWX-4.
  • Both programs have dedicated templates for the automated generation of machining procedures specifically for the Roland equipment, plus libraries of tooling and fixturing. 
  • Background processing capabilities mean that toolpath calculations can be started on the first items added to the block, while the remaining restorations are still being positioned.  
  • Both of the new releases support the use of multi-holder fixtures. These fixtures allow individual restorations to be machined from discrete blocks of material, rather than machining multiple items from a single block.
  • The machining program can now be created so that all operations with a particular tool across the various items can be completed in sequence before moving to the next cutter, so speeding up manufacturing by reducing tooling changes.
  • Improvements have been made to the scaling of models to compensate for the shrinkage of materials during the sintering process. This option now includes the ability to undertake non-uniform 3D scaling, allowing more accurate scaling to give better-fitting restorations.
  • Data import has been enhanced to improve the import of models from many different dental design systems. In particular, more variants of 3Shape parts can now be read into the software.
  • The links to Delcam’s Ordermanager workflow management software now provide a quicker, slicker and more intelligent mechanism for transferring new restorations into Dentmill from Ordermanager, thus making the whole process more efficient and saving time. Ordermanager then manages the whole process from the initial order through to manufacturing and final dispatch.

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.
