WorkNC Dental open dental CADCAM on show around the globe
Excitement about WorkNC Dental CADCAM software is continuing to build with dental professionals around the globe. Dental labs using WorkNC Dental state that they particularly appreciate the benefits of its open architecture and the machining expertise built into the software that makes it supremely easy to use. WorkNC Dental engineers will be demonstrating the latest developments in the Version 3 of the software at a number of dental events taking place in the first quarter of 2012 - Dental Forum in Paris, ExpoDental in Madrid, the LMT Lab Day in Chicago and Dental South China in Guangzhou.
WorkNC Dental CADCAM software works with numerous CNC machine tool manufacturers, allowing dental laboratories to select the equipment, techniques and dental materials which best match their needs. At the Dental Forum show in Paris, WorkNC Dental will be shown in conjunction with Willemin Macodel, Charly Robot, Witech and Theis Dental. WorkNC Dental will be partnering Datron at the LMT Lab Day in Chicago; Roland and Iddentic at ExpoDental in Madrid; and Willemin Macodel at the Dental South China show.
WorkNC Dental can import scanned data from a range of dental CAD systems and scanners. The software provides margin line detection and automated nesting to make best use of the material. Users can then add support pins which will hold each prosthesis in place during the machining operations. WorkNC Dental’s optimized machining wizards are tailored to all types of prosthetic material including zirconia, wax, cobalt chrome, titanium and PMMA, and to all types of machine tool. This enables dental technicians to cut dental restorations without any specialist knowledge of CNC programming and in a few clicks of the mouse.
At the upcoming dental shows, Sescoi’s focus will be on the new WorkNC Dental Implantology Module. This Implantology module simplifies and automates the manufacturing of implants with the automatic import and nesting of each connector according to the scanned geometry of the implant. Dental professionals can ensure a perfect fit, regardless of the dental CAD system, and without having to change their existing equipment.
WorkNC Dental also includes machining sequences perfectly tailored to the connector geometries in its database. 3+2-axis and continuous 5-axis machining toolpath management is optimized according to the materials. The machining of prostheses, whether with or without undercuts, is completely automatic, with particular attention paid to connector finishing. The integration of the geometric data and the implant connectors within the CAM environment enables dental technicians, who are not experts in CNC machining, to machine with high precision.
Visitors to Sescoi’s and partners’ booths at this year’s dental shows can also see WorkNC Dental Automation, which starts and stops the machine tools, and plans the workshop loading, directing the workload to the next available mill. For dental laboratories, the automation of implant manufacture, combined with production management, will enable them to increase their product range and reduce administrative overheads.
