Sescoi will be demonstrating its new WorkNC DENTAL software at the Rapid.Tech show in Erfurt, Germany on May 26-27. The exhibition has a special focus on rapid manufacturing in medicine and medical technology.
WorkNC DENTAL “One button CAM” has been developed and tested in collaboration with leading dental professionals and professional bodies. Its automatic 3 and 5-axis toolpaths combine with technology for nesting and orientating prosthetic implants. Additionally, tools for adding support pins and identification markings make the software an ideal solution for rapid prosthesis manufacture.
STL and native dental CAD formats are imported into WorkNC DENTAL ready for “machining wizards” to guide the user through the manufacturing process. The system automatically selects tools, machining sequences and cutting conditions optimized for particular types of material, such as titanium and zirconium, and for particular prostheses, such as copings and bridges. The intricate nature of some implants requires the use of 5-axis machining methods to reach every part of the job. Traditionally requiring highly skilled programmers, WorkNC DENTAL overcomes this problem with its automated 5-axis software. Intelligence within the system considers the limitations and kinematics of the machine tool itself to automatically produce reliable and collision free 5-axis toolpaths, according to the company.
As part of the CAD/CAM and Rapid Prototyping in Dental Technology conference at the show, Sescoi will be running a seminar in collaboration with one of its customers, Antonius Köster GmbH.
