The manufacturing software has always been an important part of the vhf range of products – self-developed, an open import system and perfectly adjusted to our dental machines. With highlights like the consistently three-dimensional display of the imported
cases, we offer our users even more convenience, options and fun while working with the software. DentalCAM is a powerful software package which does not require any previous knowledge due to its clearly structured user guidance.
Comfortable placement aids
The software supports you in an optimal utilisation of space on the blank and during setting or editing of bars, drops and sinter bars. Additionally the bars can be either reduced or fully removed – this means a considerable reduction of reworking. The 3D nesting enables a very precise alignment of your works – an especially useful feature for multi-layer materials.
Clearly structured user guidance and easy operation
Thus no previous knowledge necessary; operation via self-explaining icons and keyboard shortcuts for the most common functions; rotation of objects via scroll wheel. All relevant data concerning blanks, fixing devices and tools have been stored in the CAM software.
Maximum accessibility of undercuts
Due to the four or five axis path calculation, milling undercuts is no problem any longer.
Intelligent tool changer
Usage of backup tools if the main tool is worn out or broken. On top of that the program can regularly check whether the tool is broken.
While the milling paths of other objects or the finishing processes are still being calculated, the machine already starts – thanks to the Direct-Mill function – the roughing process. The milling paths of the different tools will be calculated fully automatized and highly optimised. Furthermore, DentalCAM is still available while the job is calculated and you can continue your work in the meantime.
Machining CoCr, titanium and glass ceramics
Thanks to according machining strategies, it is possible to mill non-precious alloys on cobalt-chrome basis and titanium. For grinding glass ceramics, grinding strategies can be added via software extension.
Special machining strategies for each object type
Machining strategies are adapted to any kind of object: crowns/bridges, fully anatomical crowns/bridges, abutments, inlays, telescope crowns, veneers, implant based bridge with divergent drillings etc.
Divergencies of fits, drillings, prepline and undercuts are automatically recognized. On top of that angulated screw channels for implants are supported; cavities and drillings can be checked in advance and manually reworked if necessary.
Comfortable choice of materials
Easily creating new blanks, respectively selecting of a suitable used blank via the material archive with search and filter functions and preview images.
Blank height optimization
The automatic blank height optimization can rotate the object within the blank in such a way that the blank height will be optimally utilised by an appropriate twist of the rotary axis – so you can use thinner blanks.
We offer a linked, searchable and regularly updated knowledge and manual database with all features and instructions for DentalCAM.
