Engineered specifically for the production of precision dental prosthetics, the DWX-50 Dental Milling Machine combines advanced features with exceptional performance to deliver innovation and affordability.

Designed to streamline the production process, the DWX-50 features 5-axis simultaneous machining capability and a 5-station automatic tool changer with tool length sensor for added production convenience. The milling machine is also equipped with a diagnostic notification system that alerts the operator of system errors and upon job completion, enabling dental laboratories and technicians to carry out the milling process with minimal operator intervention.

The DWX-50 supports a wide range of software and tools and is built on open technology, allowing for easy integration with any commercially available dental prosthetic production solution. Additionally, the DWX-50 offers multicast capability, making it possible to connect up to four machines to one computer, allowing you to grow your business by adding additional production capability at a fraction of the cost.

Other key features include an integrated air blower system that aids with difficult to machine materials, such as PMMA or zirconia, along with a built-in dust collection tray that can be easily connected to any lab vacuum system, keeping the cutting area clean and free of debris.

While there are numerous dental milling machines available in the marketplace, only the DWX-50 Dental Milling Machine delivers the advanced features the market demands at an attractive price point – all of which is backed by Roland’s proven reliability and legendary support.

Error proof

Advanced Features Make for Error-Proof Production

The DWX-50 is Roland’s most advanced dental milling machine to date. Developed expressly for the production of dental prosthetics, the easy to use DWX-50 features a 5-axis simultaneous machining capability and a 5-station automatic tool changer with tool length sensor that lend to the convenience factor by fully automating the production process.

5 axis

5-Axis Simultaneous Machining

The DWX-50 features 5-axis simultaneous machining, milling on X,Y, Z axes and rotating the blocks and discs of material 360 degrees in both clockwise and counterclockwise movements. This also allows for materials to be tilted forward and backward 20 degrees to support complex cuts.

Tool Changer

Five station Automatic Tool Changer

The five station Automatic Tool Changer with a tool length sensor enables the user to run multiple tools for one job, or to run an entire disc unattended. Instead of inspecting finished pieces to determine if everything was milled correctly, the integrated tool diagnostics feature will notify users if a tool was broken prior to completion, resulting in reduced waste. Using the tool length sensor, the automatic tool changer will also verify that a tool was properly placed back in the magazine, preventing mechanical failures.

Clean Cutting Area Lends to Precision

Air Blower

Equipped with an integrated air blower system that aids with difficult-to-machine materials, such as zirconia and PMMA, the DWX-50 also features a built-in dust collection tray that can be easily connected to any lab vacuum system, keeping the cutting area clean and free of debris.

High Quality Machining Of Materials

Samples

The DWX-50 is ideal for milling wax, zirconia, and PMMA. Aided by a maximum machine speed of 3,600 mm/min and a maximum spindle speed of 30,000 rpm, the DWX-50 is able to cut material quickly and with precision.

Clean and Safe Milling

BOFA extractionThe DWX-50 is equipped with a built-in air blower that cleans the ATC magazine and cutting surface of debris ensuring smooth, error-free operation. The DWX-50 includes a vacuum system to remove fine zirconia dust. BOFA's Dust Pro dental filtration and extraction system has been developed for the safe and effective removal of swarf and particles generated during the milling process. This heavy duty unti is designed for continuous and quite operation and ensures operators are not exposed to any fine dust from milling Zirconia.

Built-In LED Light

Designed for low power consumption, the internal LED light allows for easy follow-up on the production process.

Open Design for Easy Integration

G-Code

Built on open technology, the DWX-50 is G-Code compatible and supports a wide range of software and tools, allowing for easy integration with any commercially available dental prosthetic production solution. It can take industry standard materials as disks or blocks.

Multicast

Multicast Capable

DWX-50 offers multicast capability, making it possible to connect up to four machines to one computer, allowing you to easily grow your business by adding additional production capability at a fraction of the cost.

Virtual Machine Panel

V Panel

The DWX-50 features Roland’s legendary Virtual Machine Panel or VPanel for short. Serving as the main operation panel for the DWX-50, the VPanel allows the user to automatically start the milling process or manually reposition the tools, clamp or quickly set origin points, all from their computer desktop. The VPanel is also equipped with an easily accessible hour meter to keep track of overall machine time for maintenance purposes.
