Behind the Panels: Key Elements of a High-Quality Dental Mill
Sat, May 20, 2017, 10:30 AM – 11:30 AM PDT
There’s a wide variety of CNC dental machining centers available and choosing the right one can be daunting. Steve Braykovich reviews the various elements of machine tool construction and their affects on machine reliability, life cycle, cost of ownership and restoration quality. He'll couple machine concepts with CAM Software considerations to enable prospective buyers of dental manufacturing technology to sift through the often overly-simplified marketing collateral offered by suppliers. Participants will learn how to ask meaningful questions of suppliers when determining which manufacturing solution best fits their short and long term quality, production and cost objectives.
Upon completion of this lecture the participants should be able to:
Describe the key components of a quality milling machine.
Understand how each component affects machine life, tool life and restoration quality
Understand the importance of proper fixturing.
Accurately compare one milling machine to another
Realize the importance of CAM Software, understand the importance of machining strategies and proper machining parameters.
