DOF’s dental milling machine CRAFT 5X (CEO Henry Park) is recognized for its excellence in functional aspects and is gaining popularity not only in Korea, but also in overseas countries.
DOF reveals that it has expanded CRAFT 5X release to more than 20 countries, including the U.S., Russia, Germany, Italy, and Japan, as sales have doubled since the launch of CRAFT 5X.
One of the incomparable characteristics of CRAFT 5X is one-step milling. While traditional custom abutment production goes through complex stages of designing, milling, and scanning the abutment, the one-step milling method dramatically reduces the production stage by milling both the custom abutment and the suprastructure at the same.
Producing a full case with the one-step milling method, not only reduces the working time by more than four hours compared to the existing method, but also increases the accuracy of the result because it prevents errors that may occur during scanning.
“Although implant demand has increased and custom abutments manufacturing has become more common, most 4-axis or 5-axis milling machines sold in the market have failed to support one-step milling due to mechanical limitations or precision problems,” said Henry Park, CEO of DOF.
“If we connect the upcoming intra oral scanner and the milling machine, we will be able to process the real modeless one-step practice,” CEO Park said. “We will continue to lead the flow of digital dentistry around the world with products and services that can innovatively change the milling workflow.”
CRAFT 5X is a compact all-in-one milling machine that includes a water tank, a collector, and a compressor and it can be converted to dry or wet settings according to materials. It is a simultaneous 5-axis milling machine which can mill without restrictions on prostheses shapes, and mill most materials needed for dental treatment, such as glass ceramics, titanium, zirconia, wax, PMMA, and hybrid ceramics. Remembering the number of rotations of the motor, CRAFT 5X prevents self-extracting, and is equipped with a Jäger spindle which features up to 100,000 RPM and maximum power of 700W can mill hard materials stably.
DOF will hold a seminar about one-step milling at DOF’s Training Center located in Seoul, on February 27. Lectures are “Custom Abutment & Zirconia One-Step Milling Analysis” by Jung Hee Lee, CEO of Joyful Dental Studio and “Digital Milling Aspects of Dentists” by Dr. Hook Kook Shim, from Yul Dental Clinic.
