DGSHAPE Introduces New Dental Accessories for DWX Milling Machines

 Hamamatsu, Japan, September 12, 2018 – DGSHAPE Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Roland DG Corporation and a leading provider of digital fabrication tools, including 3D milling machines, 3D printers, and engraving machines, announced today the release of a suite of Dental accessory products for their successful DWX series of milling machines. These products are designed to allow new and existing DWX dry mill owners to expand their application offerings to their customers and cut down on time/material costs associated with popular dental prosthetics. 

The Time Reduction Kit for Models allow users to create U-shaped molds using traditional plaster that can be milled in their DWX-52D, DWX-52DC and DWX-52DCi.  

The Baltic Denture System (BDS), by Merz Dental, allows users to retrofit their DWX-51D and DWX-52D to mill BDS discs (BDLoad®) as part of the complete digital denture workflow, Baltic Denture System*. The retrofit takes advantage of the DWX 5-axis platform to mill high quality digital dentures using popular CAM software packages.

According to Hisashi Bito, President of DGSHAPE, “the MC-BDS represent our commitment to growing the field of digital dental prosthetics through efficient design and ease-of-use. Our collaboration with Merz Dental provides unique solutions to new and existing DGSHAPE customers to increase their profitability and reduce costs; to help take their digital dental lab business to the next level. The CA-MK1 is one of our unique challenges to bring value to our DWX users in a way no one else has tried. 

The Time Reduction Kit will be available worldwide in October 2018 wherever DWX milling machines are sold.
