Our new SPEED Series of Precision Dental Mills share some of the most important features a high precision machine must provide to assure it is capable of reliably and consistantily producing the highest quality restorations with the minimum amount of profit-stealing and error prone post-machiing handwork. It's the life blood of your machine and a large part of the SPEED Series DNA.
High-precicion CNC machines such as SPEED Versamill's utilize precision ballscrews in a closed-loop system powered by high-torque servo motors supported by absolute encoders. This system is superior and requires signifianly less machine calibration than lower-quality systems using stepper motors or servo motors with incremental encoders.
The spindle is the heart of any CNC machine and SPEED Versamil's utilize the best in the business. SPEED spindle drives are selected for consistant, high-torque over the useable rpm range. It is this aspect of a spindle that is more important than power rating. SPEED spindles are liquid cooled 3X hybrid bearings to maintain precision and longer life.
Effectieve high-speed machine control systems require high-block processing rates to keep up with the high-speeds required for dental applications. These controls should be built-in and provide access to the control API thereby allowing future expansion and automation. SPEED Machine controls are developed in the USA.
All Versamill 3 Series machines are assembled in our Traverse City facility using foreign and domestic components. This includes the machine control which is developed in the USA.
Versamill 3 Series machines are tested and fully qualified to assure accuracy and that they arrive fully ready for production. This includes perpendicularity between rotary axes which is critical in 5-axis manufacturing.
Contrary to claims to the contrary, there are many benefits to wet-machining zirconia. These benefits extend beyond the added expense and noise associated with the required filtration and vacuum systems required for dry milling applications. These vacuum and filtration systems, while removing a large amount of the caustic zirconia dust generated by the machining process, do not remove all of the dust- the balance of which becomes air born in the lab or dental office environment and creeps into machine components thereby compromising or shortening their operational lives. Zirconia sludge (the mixture of zirconia and water) is by far easier to deal with than dry zirconia dust, does not infiltrate machine components and is significantly less destructive to machine components than caustic and abrasive dry zirconia swarf (by-products of the machining process). Users not only enjoy longer machine and tool life, lower operating expense, and reduced system maintenance, but also realize the benefits of highly detailed and lustrous post-sinter units, superior surface finishes and sharp margins without extensive margin reinforcement- “do-overs" due to chipped or blown out margins are very rare and if present, usually attributed to worn tooling. We recommend washing/cleaning out the machining area, of any mill, machining any material, be done daily as part of a preventative maintenance program. It does not take very long and is not difficult to do. Flushing with a water hose works well. Use of compressed air should be done carefully with low pressure, especially with "dry" machines that do not have adequate sealing of the machining enclosure. Do this and the machine will reward you with smooth operation and longer, care-free life.
