    The DWX-42W is a 4-axis, high-quality output, desktop CNC milling device that uses a wet grinding process to produce dental restorations from glass ceramic, composite resin, PMMA, and sinter zirconia pin-type material. This device also allows the milling of titanium blanks to product custom titanium abutments. Each device is equipped with a set of grinding tools (burs), a removable coolant tank, an external air regulator, two filters, and a few other accessories to aid optimal maintenance and performance.

    The DWX-42W does not require a dedicated air compression unit, however, compressed air is necessary to operate the device. Depending on your region, filtered or distilled water along with coolant additive and chelate reagent may also be required for device operation.

    The DWX-42W’s performance can be enhanced with a Multi-Pin Clamp or with the Abutment Kit and Attachments. The Multi-Pin Clamp enables milling of up to six pin-type materials (excluding titanium abutments) at one time. The Abutment Kit together with an Attachment enables production of custom titanium abutments.. The Multi-Pin Clamp, Abutment Kit, and Abutment Kit Attachments are each sold separately.


    Key Features

    USB/LAN Connectivity: Connect the DWX-42W directly to your computer via USB or to your local network using an Ethernet cable.

    Fast Output: Mill ceramic applications in ten to thirty minutes.

    Efficiency: Choose to mill one, two, or three units at a time, or add a Multi-Pin Clamp to allow production of up to six dental units at once.

    Device Monitoring: Use VPanel software to monitor and manage jobs for this device, automatically track bur use, and perform routine maintenance.

    Abutment Milling: Bring titanium abutment milling to your dental business using the Abutment Kit and Attachments. Currently , this kit supports DESS, NT-Trading, MEDETiKA, and GeoMedi pin-type titanium abutment blanks.

    Consistent Quality: New, abrasive grain grinding burs provide finer detail, consistent quality, and tighter fitting dental restorations.

    Incredible Warranty: DGSHAPE offers a one-year warranty free spindle replacement. Warranty periods may vary by region and reseller.

    Open CAD/CAM Solution: Use this device with dental workflows like 3Shape’s Trios Design Studio, incorporate a mix-matched Intra-oral scanner, CAD, and CAM setup, or gear up for high production with optimized CAM software. The DWX-42W fits into almost any dental application development process.

    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

    Milling burs (ZGB series tools) can be used with the DWX-42W when milling specific glass type material (like Amber) or when seeking to mill units quickly. To use ZGB tools with the DWX-42W, you will need access to compatible CAM software such as MillBox or HyperDENT.

    We recommend using purified or distilled water when filling the coolant tank.

    We recommend using the proper ratio of chelate reagent and coolant additive when filling the coolant tank. The chelate reagent keeps milled waste from bonding to the inside of the device. The coolant additive helps keep the tools cool during milling. Milling without adding these compounds will reduce the performance of the device.

    Filters should be replaced after every 20 hours of use. For users working with a non-standard filter, please consult your reseller or review your filter's user instructions.

    The Abutment Kit and Abutment Kit Attachments are sold separately.

    A dedicated air compression unit is not necessary for the DWX-42W. This device requires minimal compressed air to operate and can be connected to your existing compressor. If you do not currently have access to compressed air, you will need to purchase a compressor.

    CAM software may be included based on your region. Consult with your DGSHAPE reseller.

    The Abutment kit offers a specialized set of milling tools for titanium milling. Tools should be placed in the Automatic Tool Changer according to the tool setup profile in your CAM software.

    Currently, Trios Design Studio allows milling one unit at a time.

    The DWX-42W is compatible with any workflow that exports NC code milling data. Intra-oral scanning device users should verify that their milled output file (CAM file) is compatible.

    Depending on the material selected, sintering or crystallization may be required after the dental restoration is milled. For material that can be finished by polishing only, crystallization is not necessary.

    The DWX-42W is compatible with sintered zirconia material (requiring a unique setup), however it is not compatible with general zirconia. DGSHAPE's DWX-52D, DWX-52DCi, and DWX-4 milling devices are excellent options for general zirconia milling.

    The DWX-42W mills glass ceramic, composite resin, PMMA, titanium, and sintered zirconia materials.
