LMT welcomed several new exhibitors to LAB DAY including: Scheftner Dental Alloys is a German manufacturer of non-precious metal alloys. Their focus is on conventional casting alloys, milling blanks and CoCr-powder for SLM/SLS technologies. The company sells direct to laboratories and production centers and is also currently looking for U.S. dealers. For more information, visit www.scheftner24.de. Making its U.S. debut at LMT LAB DAY, Robots and Design was founded in 1999 in Korea and manufactures milling machines. The MAXX DR100 machines zirconia, PMMA, wax, glass ceramic and resin and features a high-speed spindle and automatic tool changer. The MAXX DM100 mills models, metal and zirconia materials. Both units offer dry and wet milling and come in four- and five-axis models. For information, visit www.rnd.re.kr.Also making its U.S. debut at the show, China-based Shining 3D offers the AutoScan series of 3D scanners. The AutoScan-DS uses white light technology to scan a full arch...

Delcam demonstrated its latest software release, DentMILL 2014, that offers enhanced milling precision, especially important for abutment interfaces. The software imports vector information that defines the alignment of the interfaces and overlays predefined milling templates for the interfaces which is more accurate than .stl geometry, according to the company.
Another improvement to the system is the intelligent stock-management system, which allows the user to select only the sizes of material block currently in stock and suitable for the specified milling machine and fixture. After milling, partially used blocks can be added back into the stock-management system for future use.
For additional information on the software, call 877-335-2261, email email@example.com or visit www.dental-cadcam.com.

In Chicago, Delcam demonstrated its latest DentMILL software for milling implant restorations. Software enhancements include:
Improved integration with the DentCAD design software, including a new interface that features bolder and clearer icons and a reduced number of toolbars to allow maximum screen space.
Improved nesting allows more efficient use of materials. For instance, restorations are oriented in the optimum alignment so the most cost-effective part of the block can be used.
The milling templates have been extended to a wider range of materials, including titanium, cobalt-chrome and glass ceramics.
New strategies offer smoother machining to give the best possible surface finish.
Faster calculation times thanks to new background-processing capabilities. For instance, toolpath calculations can be started on the first items added to the block while the remaining restorations are still being positioned.
Closer integration between DentMILL and Delcam's OrderManager workflow management...

Based on PowerMILL CAM system, Delcam's 2012 version of the DentMILL CAM can take digital CAD designs from most systems and generate toolpaths for a wide range of machine tools. Highlights of the new software include an easier-to-use interface that maximizes screen space; closer integration with other Delcam software, including DentCAD and OrderManager that manages all the information created throughout the lifecycle of an order; more efficient nesting to allow improved material usage; five-axis machining to reduce material waste and minimize hand finishing by removing undercut regions; and new strategies for smoother machining and better surface finish.
