Dental milling cutters and grinding tools
The choice of dental milling or grinding tools plays an important role in dental technology. Because the tool is the decisive link between the dental milling machine and the material to be machined. The vhf tool specialists research and develop together with laboratory users and material manufacturers in order to produce the best possible tool.
The dental milling cutters and grinding tools from vhf have sophisticated innovative geometries for machining all material classes: wax, PMMA, zirconia, composites, titanium, CoCr and glass ceramics. Therefore, when it comes to dental tools, you can rely on the sophisticated products by vhf: for first-class tool life at best quality and at attractive prices.
Laboratories and practices can obtain vhf dental milling tools exclusively from their specialist dealer who can give you detailed advice on the use of the tools.
Dental tools for processing various materials
Our tool specialists have developed optimal cutting-edge geometries for machining the various materials used in dental technology, from wax to cobalt-chrome. The result is a perfect balance between the best possible surface quality of the material to be machined and the longest possible service life of the milling tool. Since we develop and produce the dental milling machines, the CAM software, and the dental milling cutters by ourselves all components do perfectly match together.
In-house production – e in Germany
Whether single or double tooth cutters, radius cutters or mounted points: vhf manufactures all dental milling cutters on modern six- and seven-axis precision grinding centers. For our users, this means short delivery times and a portfolio which is geared to the requirements of our customers. For all questions regarding the best possible processing of your dental materials and the correct use of the milling tool, the specialized dealers trained by vhf are competent contact persons.
Dental milling cutters from vhf are made from a superfine grain carbide mixture from German production. It is characterized by high edge strength and outstanding wear resistance – further improving work piece quality and service life.
The dental radius cutter has a semicircular rounded tip. It is available with cutting-edge diameters of 0.3 mm to 2.0 mm. While the 2.0 mm tool is mainly used for efficient roughing, tools with a small diameter of 0.3 or 0.6 mm are mainly used for finely finishing or carving out fissures. Due to the especially long free grinding of these tools, undercuts can also be reached easily.
Depending on the application and the sort of dental material, the radius cutters have one to four cutting edges: for PMMA and wax, there are, for instance, extremely sharp single-tooth cutters available with a very low tendency to clog. On the other hand, the 2 mm cutters for the abrasive zirconia have three cutting edges and the CoCr cutters even have four in order to reduce the wear for each cutting edge and to ensure greater process reliability.
For processing dental materials such as 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 2.4 mm grinding tools with their coarser grain size are used for roughing and the fine-grained radius grinding tools for the finishing process.
All milling tools are characterized by their good abrasion and break resistance and extremely long endurance. The diamond grit with its especially good binding to the shank avoids micro-cracks and reduces the sensitivity to thermal impact.
