The DC3™ machine concept is a clear advantage for the modern user and allows for system customization throughout the lifetime.
For a targeted investment
Modules ensure progress
Depending on the customer‘s requirements, DC3™ systems can be put together individually, both when acquiring the milling machine and years later, in terms of the user. The assortment of DC3™ modules includes a wide variety of variants and will be expanded in the future. Extensions of the control and CAM software enable expansion up to the level of the extensive DC7™ system. Depending on the philosophy, the customer, when purchasing the system, e.g. whether the DC3™ should be operated by a separate computer and monitor or extended by a module with the integrated computer system and touch monitor. Subsequently, various modules such as the expansion of workpiece automation, automation measurement, motor spindle, cooling and extraction techniques are possible.
A special challenge
The machining of implant-supported superstructures in metal and the resulting precession for all production steps pose a particular challenge to CAD/CAM systems. The DC3™ system was developed for this type of application and allows for a great deal of flexibility with a full range of materials. The DCS family of devices is known for its long-lasting performance and is valued by users around the world for its ability to produce bridge and telescope supplies.
Motor spindles for the future
A motor spindle may not be too small or too big in a system! Any weight that is accelerated must also be braked again. Anyone who wants to mill and even drill with high dynamics, precise and low-resonance requires a well-thought-out system. For the DC3™, a special kind of motor spindle could be developed. An increased clamping force for all tools and the largest possible angle of attack for deep cavities were important points besides a design that was as light as possible.
Precise Abutment manufacturing
The production of abutments can be done by pre-milling in the DC3™. For the processing different holder systems are available. In addition to the ability to process blanks made of metal, the system is particularly suitable for processing aesthetic Bio HPP ™ prefabs. In addition, all other commercial materials can be processed in the DC3™, wet or dry. For fully automatic measurement in blank automation, an additional module is available.
Extensive tool management
Due to complex requirements in the manufacturing of abutments and implant-supported superstructures, more and more milling tools are needed. The DC3™ milling system has an intelligent tool change system. The interchangeable tool magazines can each accommodate 20 tools and are automatically recognized by the system. Pick-Up sleeves for holding the tools and stop rings are manufactured uniformly and therefore have the same high precision.
More precision through
a clean workspace
The DC3™ workspace contains all relevant components. Machining table with blank holder, spindle and tool magazine as well as workpiece changer with automation. The workpiece magazine moves into the rear wall of the machine during processing and protects finished restorations and blanks from unnecessary contamination. The shape of the interior allows complete cleaning in just a few minutes and provides the user with production without long and unnecessary interruptions.
Low-resonance machine frame
The DC3™ milling system also has a low resonance machine frame which is unique due to its special design. The DC3™ frame captures vibrations and enables a machine design that is in the precision of industrial machines despite its low overall weight. Frame and portal can be converted by an additional module for motor spindles of a different design. The resulting flexibility for future adjustments to a future even more extensive production is a clear advantage.
Large setting angle for deep cavities
Due to the large angle of the Z-axis, the DC3™ milling system is particularly good at producing bite splints and prostheses. Deep cavities and undercutting areas can be reliably milled. The workpiece changer allows permanent use. With the help of blank measurement, the exact positioning can be determined. Due to the special construction of the chip tray, even in wet operation, large quantities of residual material can be intercepted and easily disposed of.
Sophisticated machine control
The DC3™ milling system has a separate computer system with a large monitor for a comprehensive overview. The control software is tuned directly to the CAM software and thus enables full functionality. The Dental Concept Systems has a control concept, which was developed by in-house developers and thus
always adapted to modern requirements. The device is a modular split CNC industrial hardware control.
Efficiency with system
All components integrated into the DC3™ system are used intelligently by the DC ConceptCONTROL control and are well thought out by the user. The DC3™ system is energy-efficient and quiet thanks to demand-based extraction. The device is connected to a 230 Volt socket and only needs to be protected by a commercially available fuse. The low power consumption and the always refillable fluid system permanently save high costs.
Expandable components in the substructure
All components are integrated into the lower part of the floor unit. In addition to the suction system, the fluid and material drawer, cooling and abrasive system, as well as the regulation of pneumatic and flow control, are housed. The system has a controlled cooling system with tank, pump and fine filter and allows wet processing in the working space. If necessary, the fluid system can be extended to a further complete cooling circuit.
