Sescoi will be showing its automatic WorkNC Dental CAD CAM software at the Sino-Dental 2010 exhibition in Beijing on 9-12 June, in collaboration with Dental Wings, on booths I17 to I20.
Dental Wings’ design software, DWOS, manipulates models of dental crowns, bridges and custom abutments, digitized in its non-contact 3D laser scanners. Seamless integration with WorkNC Dental enables the finished designs to be passed to Sescoi’s Dental CAM software, ready for CNC program preparation and machining.
The vision behind the WorkNC Dental CAM software is to make “one button dental CAM” a reality. Automated cycles in WorkNC Dental enable technicians unfamiliar with CNC machining to produce safe, reliable CAM programs with just a few mouse clicks. Prostheses are first nested into the blank and support pins added, making the best use of the material and ensuring rigidity during manufacture. New functions in the software check that the prostheses fit into the blank and that they are orientated in the most appropriate way to ensure that they can be completely machined. Additionally, technicians can now engrave directly onto the implant, improving traceability in supply.
Using programming wizards, WorkNC Dental automatically selects the most efficient tooling and machining methods for cutting each specialist material. 5-axis toolpaths enable the prosthesis to be machined safely in one operation, with collision avoidance considering the tool, its holder and the limitations of the machine tool itself.
New in the latest version of this easy to use Dental CADCAM software is the ability to define models of the clamps required to hold down the job and include these in the collision checking algorithms, further increasing the reliability of machining. The software already produces optimized cutterpaths for zirconia, titanium and chrome cobalt. New materials have been added, including lithium disilicate, adding to the flexibility and range of the system.
Speed of calculation has been increased in the latest version of WorkNC Dental. Improvements in the handling of STL files generated from scanned data have also added to the efficiency of the system, further cutting down on programming times while maintaining accuracy. This is particularly important along the margin line, which WorkNC Dental automatically detects to form a snug fit.
By working in partnership with Dental Wings and numerous machine tool OEMs, Sescoi is offering dental professionals an open system for digital prosthesis manufacture, which will enable them to offer a greatly improved patient service, comprising fast delivery and an economical price without compromising on the high quality demands of the industry.
