New DGSHAPE CA-MK1 and CA-DK1: More time savings for dental professionals

A new duo of innovations from DGSHAPE is now available, helping existing DWX dental milling machine users make additional time and cost savings. The wholly-owned subsidiary of Roland DG has released two new kits specifically for use with DGSHAPE DWX-52DCi, DWX-52DC and DWX-52D dry milling machines.

The DGSHAPE CA-MK1 Time Reduction Kit for models has been developed to allow users to create U-shaped moulds using traditional plaster, that can then be milled efficiently in-house. Compared to using a conventional milling disc, the CA-MK1 can deliver an 80% cost reduction and 50% milling time reduction* – making in-house model milling an even more affordable option.

The second new release from DGSHAPE is the CA-DK1 Time Reduction Kit for cast denture bases, again designed to accelerate production with DGSHAPE DWX-52DCi, DWX-52DC and DWX-52D systems. It allows users to create dentures in-house in three simple steps: casting using conventional liquid resins, a curing period, then milling the cast to produce the highest quality milled denture bases.

This combination of CA-DK1 Time Reduction Kit and DWX milling machine can help users achieve a reduction in milling times of up to 50% and material savings of up to 70%, compared to using a standard PMMA disc*.

"Building on the success of the Time Reduction Kit for models, we developed this solution to give our DWX users an opportunity to expand into the rapidly growing market for digital dentures," explains Hisashi Bito, President of DGSHAPE.

"Our customers can successfully create digital denture bases without any additional investment in hardware, and minimise costs by using existing denture resin inventory."

Both CA-MK1 and CA-DK1 kits contain silicone moulds, jigs and a pre-roughing bur, and are available now.
