Lets get this topic started! What is 5 axis and why would you want it?
Simply put, 5 axis milling gives...See more the cutting tool more access to the stock being cut. A five axis machine helps labs save money because you can tilt pieces to allow them to fit into a thinner puck of zirconia. Thinner pucks are cheaper. Another advantage of 5 axis milling is the ability to position the piece to remove material that a 4 axis mill can not reach. For example a bridge that does not have a zero insertion angle.
The Roland DWX-50 was designed as an open system so it can take advantage of the latest CAM software technology. When you use a Roland DWX-50, the CAM software will automatically turn on the 5th axis as needed. If there are no undercuts, then it will run in 4 axis mode which is cheaper. Either way, the operator does not have to worry about any of this. It is automatic! Send me a message if you have any questions or Learn more about the amazing DWX-50 five axis dental mill at:
