    The DWX-51D 5-Axis Dental Milling Machine

    The DWX-51D is designed for effortless, precision production of dental prosthetics from copings, crowns and bridges to inlays, onlays and abutments, etc. With a host of automated features and a clean, stable work environment, the DWX-51D is the perfect solution for labs wanting to increase production or those looking to get into digital milling for the first time.

    Feature Summary

    • 5-axis simultaneous milling for precision milling
    • Steady and efficient ball screw-driven operation
    • New C-shape clamp for easy adjustment and alignment
    • 10-station Automatic Tool Changer (ATC) for continuous milling
    • Powerful vacuum and anti-static ionizer for clean calibration and dust reduction


    For thirty years, Roland DG has been the trusted provider of milling machines that are built to last. The DWX-51D 5-Axis Dental Milling Machine is no exception. After extensive research in which lab technicians were asked what they needed in a production mill, the DWX-51D was developed to enhance user experience, maximize ease-of-use and improve output quality. Built with a simple and modern design, the DWX-51D looks as effortless as it operates.


    Ultimate Convenience and Ease-of-Use

    A variety of new features ensure continuous, user-friendly milling, including:

    • Sturdy frame ensures stability, while slim design fits nearly any lab space
    • Easy access tool drawer properly stores and protects tools
    • Colour-coded LED status lights signal current job progress
    • Virtual Machine Panel (VPanel) allows users to configure settings from their computer, send CAM data to the DWX-51D for production, and track milling progress
    • Easily accessible cutting area for simple tool replacement and cleaning

    Combine DWX Devices for a Flexible Dental Solution

    The DWX-51D offers the best performance and value for dry milling zirconia and other popular materials. For those wanting to combine dry and wet milling, running the DWX-51D dry mill alongside the DWX-4W wet mill offers the most flexible and productive solution.

    Using separate dry and wet DWX devices gives you the confidence to take on the maximum amount of glass ceramic and zirconia restorations without the need for time-consuming, back-and-forth set-up and cleaning of a single machine.

    Compatible with Multiple Materials

    The DWX-51D is equipped to mill industry-standard discs and blocks of these and other popular materials.

    • Zirconia
    • Wax
    • PMMA
    • Composite resin
    • PEEK
    • Gypsum

    Roland DG supplies a variety of tools to mill different materials, including diamond-coated burs and ball-end tools designed specifically for precision milling of zirconia and hybrid ceramic.

    DWX Devices

    5-Axis Machining for Smoother Production

    The DWX-51D is a smooth and steady ball screw-driven machine capable of milling complex restorations. It operates on X,Y, and Z axes – simultaneously rotating blocks and discs. Tilting on the B axis it supports deep undercuts and the complex milling of large arch restorations and other full-mouth prosthetics.

    Economical Open Architecture

    The open architecture of the DWX-51D allows you to work with the latest materials, CAD/CAM software and scanners, without needing to rely on a single source.

    Clean and Comfortable Operation

    A unique inner structure with spacious airflow supports comfortable operation, while an automatic dust collection feature boasts a powerful vacuum for clean usage and calibration. An ionizer removes static, ideal for milling PMMA material.

    DWX Devices

    Connect Multiple Machines and Increase Production

    The DWX-51D offers multicast capability that allows connection of up to four Roland DG machines to one computer, making it easier than ever for dental labs to expand their businesses and increase their production capacity.

    DWX-4 samples

    New C-Shape Clamp for Quicker Set-Up

    The new C-shape clamp on the DWX-51D requires the adjustment of only two screws for a simplified set-up. The C-shape clamp (which includes a torque driver for improved clamping consistency) also provides exact alignment and uniformity, resulting in less misalignment issues.


    10-Station Automatic Tool Changer for Continuous Milling

    With a 10-station Automatic Tool Changer (ATC), DWX-51D users don’t have to stop production to replace the specific burs needed for milling different materials.

    Virtual Machine Panel

    Complex controls associated with CNC milling have been replaced by a user-friendly Virtual Machine Panel (VPanel) that automatically starts the milling process, conducts machine diagnostics and operates milling calibration from your computer.

    Progress and Error Alerts

    To further automate the milling process and ensure error-free production, users receive e-mail notifications detailing any errors, or when milling is completed, while a color-coded LED light signals machine status


    9 Pin-Type Material Adapter Included

    A material adapter with nine pin-type placement options is included for easy and error free set-up.

    CAM Software Included

    Purchase of the DWX-4W includes open-architecture CAM software that accepts all STL file types and supports the milling of relevant materials. This easy-to-use software features a user-friendly interface and simple workflow that promotes a short learning curve. Its features include automatic nesting and placement options to help maximise efficiency and pre-defined milling procedures for direct software-to-mill functionality without interruption during tool path calculation.
