1: Unique Patented Design and Geometry of DATRON Dental Milling Tools

DATRON prides itself on having a unique approach to tooling development. Through careful guidance from RD Dental at DATRON AG, a patented design and geometry has been achieved in all DATRON Dental milling tools.  This includes specific flute cutting surfaces and the overall blend of actual cutting diameters of the dental milling tools.  DATRON has noted that forces that are exerted on the tool surfaces are controlled with specialized geometry that increases the overall precision and lifetime of the cutting tool.

Dental milling tools geometry developed by DATRON AG in Germany is a patented design and specialized for precision milling of dental indications.

2: Longevity and Precision of DATRON Dental Milling Tools

DATRON’s design of the cutting surfaces for dental milling tools has allowed for a masterful blend of shapes and sizes that outperform many of today’s competitors. The precision instruments created by our team allow for longer running times in materials such as Chrome Cobalt (CoCr), Zirconia (ZrO2), PMMA, WAX, nano composite materials and Titanium.

The running times for DATRON dental milling tools, measured in meters, are proof of more units per tool.  For example, a normal (non-DATRON) set of titanium tools produces on average about 100 abutments or 10 bars. In comparison, some of our dental lab customers are seeing numbers per set of tools well in the 200+ range.

Please note the charts below showing longevity of DATRON dental milling tools is based on distance (meters).

3: Specialized Coatings for DATRON Dental Milling Tools

DATRON uses a specialized coating application for their tooling known as CVD or Chemical Vapor Deposition. The purpose of the coating is to protect the overall shape, sharpness and precision of the cutting flutes. These flutes are the surfaces which engage the material that is being cut. The Flutes are coated in diamond or diamond-like carbon material which enhances the overall life of the individual tool. However, sometimes a rounding off of flutes can occur from sub-standard CVD application. DATRON’s scientific and patented procedure has allowed for a perfect equilibrium between the chemical adhesion of the coating to the cutting surface of the tool. Please note the electron microscopic image presenting the CVD adhesion to the carbide tooling showing an exact and accurate deposit of diamonds to the carbide surface.

4: DATRON Dental Milling Tools for All Machine Types

DATRON AG has developed a large selection of tooling for almost all machines in the dental market today.  Thanks to the advanced engineering and development of DATRON dental milling tools, labs and milling centers can leverage DATRON’s experience to improve the quality and cut of every possible dental indication.  Through our patented tooling design, your machine can cut with DATRON precision.

Dental milling tools for most CAD CAM dental milling machines are developed by DATRON AG in Germany.
