C5 – The table top CAD-CAM

Dental Machine C5
Easy to use, the added value to your laboratory

C5 is the “medium size” milling machine by Dental Machine, specifically developed for dental labs or dental clinics, which need an extended usage of CAD-CAM technology and an important return on the investment.

C5 is a table-top, 5-axis, numerically controlled milling/grinding machine, which is  very easy to use with 5 axes interpolated continuously. It can mill almost any dental item (crown, bridges, models, full dentures, etc.) in any material (wax, PMMA, PEEK, other resins, composites, zirconia, aluminium, titanium, Co-Cr, etc.) or grind materials such as ceramics, lithium disilicate, etc., both wet and dry.

C5 – Technical specifications

Open system

Use of standard STL files in input for the maximum compatibility with other components of the system. No constraint to use our materials / tools and no mandatory yearly softare updating: it will work forever even if not updated. And you can also choose the colour (RAL table or carbon fibre).

Highest Precision

Movement on XYZ axes with precision ball screw and backlash recovery, directly driven by brushless motors with precision encoders for continuous check of position. The 2 rotary axes have the same motors and zero backlash gearboxes.

5 Axes in Continuous

5 axes managed in continuous are needed for modern implantology, which places implants in the optimum position and optimum angle, with no restriction. For simpler jobs, the 5 axes are often useful to reduce the blank thickness (less time and less consumption of materials and tools).

16 Tools Available

Automatic tool change, 16 tools on board; automatic measure of tool length (high precision) and check for tool breakage. Mainly build in aluminium alloy (Anticorodal 6082) to reduce the machine weight.

C5: EASY TO USE

TECHNOLOGY

1 kW electro-spindle with rotation speed from 18.000 rpm up to 60.000 rpm. Quick-insertion blank holder for 98,3 mm disk with step. Option: tooling for wet milling of hard materials. On request, equipment for wet grinding of hard materials (disilicates and alike). Connection to external suction system, turned on automatically when needed. Status of the machine shown by the colour of the lights. Bus based on CANopen technology to provide maximum reliability.

THE CAM SOFTWARE

The CAM software – Dental Millbox by Sum3D (OEM version) –  is supplied with the milling machine. It is perfectly integrated with major dental CADs and very easy to use. With a click you can perform thickness optimization, automatic positioning on the blank (new or used), acceptance of proposed pinning, checking for collision etc. and includes milling strategies for most materials used in dental sector. Machine control by an external PC or tablet (not included) with Windows operating system.

CUSTOMER SUPPORT

In addition to the ease of use and careful training, Dental Machine offers the most important item in dental CAD CAM: a careful and customised support – even out of standard working hours – to his clients to help them change from traditional technology to CAD CAM. Ethernet / Wi-Fi Connection for remote support.

Why 5 axes

Modern oral implantology places the implants in optimum position and at the optimum angle for each specific implant. Thus the manufacture of the prosthesis needs a 5-axis machining; better if the axes have a simultaneous movement.
However, 5 axes are useful on traditional jobs to place the prosthesis to be milled in the disc, minimizing its thickness (higher speeds, lower consumption of materials and less tool wear). The lower cost of a 4-axis machine does not justify its limits; thus Dental Machine stopped manufacturing 4-axis machines some years ago.
