Dental tools
  • Inhouse production

  • Our tool experts have developed sophisticated cutting-edge geometries for machining the different materials from wax to cobalt-chrome. Thus the optimum balance between the best-possible surface quality of the machined material and the longest-possible endurance of the tool is ensured. All dental milling cutters are manufactured by vhf on modern six- and seven-axis precision grinding centers.

    Dental tools – inhouse production

    Dental milling cutters from vhf consist of a super-finest grained carbide mixture of German origin. It is characterized by its high edge strength combined with its high resistance to wear and ductility. This additionally improves the quality of the workpiece and the endurance of the tool.

Tools with optimized cutting edge geometries

With vhf dental milling tools you can machine the established dental materials. The tools are available with variously optimized cutting edge geometries and with accordingly adapted coatings. In addition we offer grinding tools for machining glass ceramics.

  • Radius cutters

  • This special dental radius cutter has a semicircular rounded tip. It is available with cutting-edge diameters of 0.3 mm to 2.0 mm. While the 2.0 mm tool is mainly used for efficient roughing, tools with a small diameter of 0.3 or 0.6 mm are mainly used for finely finishing or carving out fissures. Due to the especially long free grinding of these tools, undercuts can also be reached easily.

    Depending on their field of application, the radius cutters have one to four cutting edges: for PMMA and wax, there are, for instance, extremely sharp single-tooth cutters available with a very low tendency to clog. On the other hand, the 2 mm cutters for the abrasive zirconium oxide have three cutting edges and the CoCr cutters even have four in order to reduce the wear for each cutting edge and to ensure greater process reliability.

  • Radius cutter

  • Cylindric double tooth cutter

  • Double tooth cutter

  • A double-tooth cutter with flat face grinding and a cutting-edge diameter of 1.2 mm. It is used when 90° angles have to be milled, e.g. in drillings and abutments.

    For machining non-precious alloys on a cobalt-chrome basis and titanium, this tool is available as a torus cutter with a small edge radius which protects the cutting edges (only 1.2 mm diameter) – so a higher endurance is guaranteed.

  • Cylindrical single tooth cutter

  • The cutting edge of this cutter with flat face grinding is extremely sharp and faceted. Thus the milled edges are very smooth even at high feed rates and the risk of clogging is very low – even for plastics which tend to smear.

    This tool is available with a cutting-edge diameter of 2.5 mm; it is exclusively used for roughing PMMA and wax. Roughing with a flat ground cutter reduces the milling time.

  • Single tooth cutter

  • Grinding tools

  • Grinding tools

  • For machining glass ceramics and composites, vhf offers torus and radius grinding tools with a diamond grit in different grain sizes. The two smaller torus grinding tools with their fine grain size are mainly used for drillings and abutments. The 2.4 mm grinding tools with their coarser grain size are used for roughing and the fine-grained radius grinding tools for the finishing process.

    All tools are characterized by their good abrasion and break resistance and extremely long endurance. The diamond grit with its especially good binding to the shank avoids micro-cracks and reduces the sensitivity to thermal impact.
