Milling and machining of dental materials The dental industry has morphed from a traditional craft to a CAD/CAM manufacturing process. The production of crowns, bridges or abutments requires the use of radius cutters that are tailored precisely to the demands of the material, the machine and, last not least, the user. Nowadays, dental professionals are able to choose from a number of materials for high-quality dental prostheses. Cobalt-chrome (CoCr), NEM, zirconia, titanium, PMMA, PEEK or nano-composites are part of the range of materials that are used in the dental industry.
