Sydney, Australia, January 28, 2016 – Roland DG Corporation, a leading manufacturer of dental milling devices worldwide, announced that its latest DWX-51D and DWX-4W dental mills have been validated by VITA Zahnfabrik H. Rauter GmbH & Co. KG (Germany) for use with the company's dental prosthetic materials, including VITA ENAMIC®, VITA SUPRINITY® and VITABLOCS® Mark II.“Dental materials from VITA, including hybrid ceramic and glass ceramic type materials, are becoming increasingly popular with dental technicians, dentists and their patients due to their superb aesthetic appearance, strength and shortened processing time required,” said Takuro Hosome, manager of dental business development for Roland DG. “The certification provides not only an endorsement for the excellent accuracy and quality of dental prosthetics produced with our milling machines, but also peace of mind to our customers and prospects that our devices meet the high quality standards set by VITA.”
The certification has been given for milling VITA ENAMIC® with the DWX-51D equipped with ZDB-100D/50D/30D milling burs developed specifically for milling dental hybrid type materials. Introduced in 2015, the DWX-51D 5-axis dry mill is capable of producing copings, crowns, full bridges and abutments and other prosthetics from materials such as zirconia, wax, PMMA, composite resin, PEEK and gypsum with unparalleled speed and precision. Also launched in 2015, the DWX-4W, the company’s first wet mill which was especially designed for milling glass ceramics and composite resins, is certified to mill VITA ENAMIC®, VITA SUPRINITY® and VITABLOCS® Mark II. The DWX-4W features 4-axis milling and a 4-station automatic tool changer (ATC) for changing grinding burs automatically as needed without interrupting production.
“Our DWX series dental mills were purposely built using an open architecture design in order to integrate into an existing workflow with commercially available dental CAD/CAM software and hardware,” said Hosome. “This feature allows us to partner with exciting dental companies like VITA to ensure that our customers always have access to the latest, most advanced prosthetic materials rather than being locked in to a single source.”
Patrick Bayer, Head of Global Cooperation Management of VITA, said, “We are proud to provide the Roland DG users with high quality VITA CAD/CAM material solutions. The combination of the validated Roland DG milling machines and the innovative VITA CAD/CAM materials ensure the best results for the patients.”
VITA ENAMIC® is a hybrid ceramic material which combines the high load capacity and aesthetics of a dental ceramic with the elasticity of a composite. It is finished without firing, which reduces labor and production time. VITA SUPRINITY® is high-strength, zirconia-reinforced glass ceramic acclaimed for its high load capacity. It also boasts brilliant esthetics based on integrated translucency, opalescence and fluorescence. With optimized edge stability due to fine-grained configuration, it can be used for prosthetics which require precision. VITABLOCS® Mark II is a feldspathic glass ceramic with more than 25 years of clinical experience providing excellent bonding to the tooth structure.

As explained in a news feature that aired on WIN News Illawarra, the brand new XR-640 represents the latest in print and cut technology and was given to the TAFE to use in conjunction with Roland DG’s donation 5 years ago of a VS-640 Printer Cutter. Gino Farina, Sales and Marketing Director at Roland DG, commented: “This is our latest technology… we wanted to work with the TAFE to provide them a second machine [and] more access to their students and obviously more opportunity to have that hands-on experience with the printers.”
Tafe SignwritersAired - 02/12/15Reporter - Sydney PeadPosted by WIN News Illawarra on Wednesday, December 2, 2015
The XR-640 uses the latest generation environmentally-friendly ECO-SOL MAX 2 inks and is larger and faster with greater quality output, precision and performance. The machine prints to a wide variety of materials such as vinyls, banners and textiles – producing a range of items from POP displays and soft signage to vehicle graphics.
TAFE Wollongong graduate Anthony Jones, who finished a Certificate 3 in Signage one year ago, started his own business making private and commercial murals using the older machine, which he found to be “fantastic”. He believes that the new machine will add great value. “It makes sense… when [students] do jump out into the field, they are going to be able to work with the current technology.”
Not only have Roland DG provided equipment, but they are working closely with the TAFE to add value to the curriculum in the form of additional course content on the manufacturer and business side of the industry. This competency based training is helping to educate the students so that the next generation of signage professionals graduate with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in the ever-evolving signage industry. Head Teacher of the TAFE’s Signage Department, Ian Squire, agrees that “the industry is so fast moving and revolving” and for students to learn using industry standard equipment along with the right training, is so important.
Delivery of the XR-640 has been very timely as it gives TAFE staff a chance to receive training before the updated signage course commences in 2016.

According to Gino Farina, Roland DG Australia Sales & Marketing Director, VersaUV printers, which include the previous LEF-12 and LEF-20 models, are popular for their ability to print rich color directly on a vast array of materials, including three-dimensional items up to 100 mm thick. The LEF-300 was developed in response to customer demand for greater productivity in the personalisation and custom printing markets, which are characterized by small-lot production of numerous products. To accommodate greater quantities and larger-sized items, the LEF-300’s printing area has been expanded to 770 mm wide by 330 mm long, 50% more than the previous models.
“With the LEF-300,” Farina said, “you can print on a wide variety of substrates such as PET, ABS, and polycarbonate, and soft materials such as TPU and leather, as well as three-dimensional items, including pens, smartphone cases, signs, personalised awards, giftware, promotional items, laptop covers and more. A vacuum table makes it easy to hold thin and soft materials in place,” he added.
With four print heads and two UV-LED lamps, the LEF-300 enables bidirectional printing approximately 60%* faster than the LEF-20. The number of white and clear (gloss) ink nozzles have been doubled for faster printing, increased density and opacity and faster build-up of multiple layers for three-dimensional textures. A new draft print mode improves overall efficiency for users in need of quick prototype prints.
The LEF-300 comes equipped with the new Roland VersaWorks Dual software RIP that includes all the advanced, easy-to-use features of VersaWorks, and now supports both PostScript and PDF files for improved file processing. Within VersaWorks Dual users can now automatically generate White and Gloss ink data, making it simpler than ever to create amazing high value effects. In addition, features like offset, positioning, rotation and registration of ink layers can be handled directly in the RIP without the need to return to design software.
The LEF-300 uses new EUV4 ink, Roland DG’s proprietary CYMK, White and Clear ECO-UV inks for premium quality prints. EUV4 ink reduces odor and the shrinking of thin film materials like BOPP, PE and PET when curing. In addition to a 220 cc cartridge, a new, larger 500 cc ink cartridge has been introduced which is more economical and requires less cartridge replacements. (White ink is only available in 220 cc cartridges.)
According to Farina, “The growth of digital technology has facilitated the printing of photographs, illustrations and logos onto items that people wear or carry, both as a means of self-expression and as a means of feeling closer to the things they value. The market for on-demand printing onto various articles is expected to expand further still in the future.”
“We have seen an increasing number of businesses using VersaUV LEF printers to provide custom printing services for smartphone cases and accessories,” Farina said, “including ecommerce sites as well as kiosks located within shopping centers, where they provide on-site printing of photographs taken by customers onto various blank goods to create a new shopping experience for their customers. The LEF-300 is perfect for handling the growing amount of tasks.”
Farina also sees potential in the application of UV printers used in mass production. “In order to accommodate customization and decoration of parts and modules in high volume production lines, the LEF-300 incorporates an input/output system that supports external devices such as warning lights and custom production automation systems. In addition, the LEF-300 is built with precision parts that are not susceptible to changes in temperature or humidity and are designed to maintain accurate high-quality printing even during long production runs.”
