Inhouse production of dental milling tools
Our tool experts have developed sophisticated cutting edge geometries for machining the different dental materials from wax to cobalt-chrome. Thus the optimum balance between a best possible surface quality of the machined material and a preferably long endurance of the tool is ensured. All dental milling cutters are manufactured by vhf on modern six- and
seven axis precision grinding centres.
Dental milling cutters from vhf consist of a super finest grain carbide mixture of German origin. It is characterized by its high edge strength with high resistance to wear and ductility at the same time. This additionally improves the workpiece quality and the endurance.
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 if this is reasonable for the respective material: wax and plastics (PMMA), zirconium oxide, composites as well as non-precious alloys on cobalt-chrome basis. In addition we offer grinding tools for machining glass ceramics.
DentalCAM: we make it easy for you
In the dental software DentalCAM developed by vhf, all machining and tool parameters for different materials and objects are already set – the users do not have to bother about such technical details. The machine only has to be equipped with the material and the tools required for the respective job and there you go.
you can find all dental tools in the vhf Shop
There you can find all specifications of each tool as well as according illustrations. Just log into your account at shop.vhf.de and browse the dental tools section. This part of the shop is only accessible to registered vhf resellers and OEM partners.
This special dental radius cutter has a semi-circular rounded tip. It is available with cutting edge diameters of 0.6 mm, 1.0 mm and 2.0 mm. As the 2.0 mm tool is mainly used for efficiently roughing, tools with the small diameter of 0.6 mm are mainly used for finely finishing or carving out fissures. Due to the especially long free grinding of these tools, also undercuts can be reached easily. The tools for plastics and wax are uncoated, for zirconium oxide they are uncoated and coated, the tools for composites and CoCr are always coated.
Cylindric double tooth cutters
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 cobalt-chrome basis, this tool is available as torus cutter with a small edge radius which protects the cutting edges. So a higher endurance is guaranteed. The tools for plastics and wax are uncoated, for zirconium oxide they are uncoated and coated, the tools for composites and CoCr are always coated.
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.
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 2.6 mm torus grinding tool with its coarser grain size is used for roughing and the two fine-grained radius grinding tools for the later finishing process.
All tools distinguish themselves by a good abrasion and break resistance, and their endurance is very long. The diamond grit with its especially good binding to the shank avoids microcracks and reduces the sensitivity for thermal impact.
