Zirkonzahn has released its new compact line Milling Unit M1, further expanding its array of CAD/CAM equipment, materials and solutions for dental laboratories.
The development of the compact line was based on the proven M5 milling unit technology of Zirkonzahn's flagship range and is available in several models designed to match the needs and budget of any-sized dental laboratory looking to take advantage of computer-aided manufacture.
The 4-axis Milling Unit M1 Abutment model can, for example, process precast titanium abutments (raw abutments) as well as glass ceramics.
Alternatively, the M1, M1 Wet, and M1 Wet Heavy models are provided with intelligent 5 axes orbit technology to deliver the ultimate in versatility. This means that milling is possible in any conceivable plane - even undercuts and diverging abutments are processed simply and fast. Thus, besides crowns, bridges, inlays, onlays and telescopic crowns, full zirconia abutments, screw connections, attachments, bars and full prosthesis can be created.
Each model is designed to work with different materials. The M1 will mill all soft materials, such as Prettau® Zirkon Transluzent, Zirkonzahn's signature translucent zirconia material; as well as pre-sintered aluminium oxide, PMMA, wood, wax or even sinter metal.
The M1 Wet also incorporates a wet processing function which allows grinding of not only soft materials but also the increasingly popular
The top of the range Milling Unit M1 Wet Heavy offers complete versatility with both wet and dry processing functions for all soft materials and glass ceramics as well as hard materials including titanium and chrome-cobalt. The fourfold orbit and its high-torque milling spindle provides extra stability, essential for milling hard alloys.
The Compact line Milling Unit M1 is particularly compact and space saving (477 x 693 x 613 mm) and is characterized by its extremely short milling time thanks to the high speed milling engine.
The compact line Milling Unit M1 combines in an optimal way with the Zirkonzahn Scanner S600 ARTI and the user-friendly, dental-technician-designed Zirkonzahn software to provide a complete solution.
