There are many interrelated factors that affect a DMC’s (Dental Machining Center) reliability, speed and accuracy, the three most important of which include the spindle drive system, machine control and axes drive system.

The spindle drive system provides power to the cutting tool to remove material. The control (or machine operating system) is the brain of the DMC and coordinates machine motion.

The axis drive system  determines how smooth the motion of the DMC  is and how it translate into parts that are consistently accurate with the required surface finish quality.

Most dental milling systems available today lack the rigidity of construction and fixturing, quality components, speed, versatility and size to effectively produce the various restoration types from the soft and hard materials that are required of them to maintain or grow their business.

The Versamill 5XS eliminates these issues by providing a single, cost-effective, compact and easy-to-use open platform high precision dental milling machine constructed from heavy duty, reliable components utilized in heavy industrial applications that can be implemented in any lab enviornment.

Choose the Versamill 5XS for your next purchase of a dental machining center; it may well be the only machine you will ever need.

Product Details

SPINDLE DRIVE
The amount of force and wear and tear that a DMC’s spindle must endure means the design of the spindle and the quality of the parts buried within the spindle is vital to the DMC’s spindle’s performance and its lifespan.

Quality components not only determine longevity of the spindle, they determine how the spindle handles speed, torque and vibration. Key considerations include; style (belt or integral motor), bearings (type, lubrication and cooling), motor, shaft and housing.

The Versamill addresses these considerations by utilizing a rigid, high quality and reliable precision spindle system that is also economical. The Versamill's high speed air cooled spindle can operate at high rpm while producing minimal run-out at the cutting tool edge allowing for long tool life and outstanding surface finishes; without the need for expensive tooling systems such as shrink-fit, polygonal clamping, micro collets and others.

AXIS DRIVE
The quality of the axis drive system is also a function of the construction of the frame and the axes way system. This is the key area in the construction of a machine tool as it determines rigidity, vibration damping capacity, and resistance to side thrust. It's the balance between these three critical areas (power, speed, accuracy) that you must evaluate against your current and future needs to get the best buy for your money.

Additionally the type of axis drive motor (servo or stepper) and motor control system (open-loop or closed-loop) is important to assure positional accuracy, repeatability, smoothness of motion, vibration, tool wear, quality of surface finish and quietness of operation.

The Versamill’s closed-loop servo motor system is the system of choice in a quality DMC as it avoids the positional/repeatability accuracy, noise and maintenance issues associated with open-loop systems that rely on stepper motors to drive the machine axes.

G enerally Speaking, 5-Axis machining is a manufacturing process where computer numerically controlled Axes moved in 5 ways are used to manufacture parts out of metal or other materials by milling away excess material. Typical CNC tools support translation in 3 axes; multi-axis or 5-Axis machines also support rotation around one or multiple axes.

The number of axes for multiaxis machines varies from 4 to as many as 9. Each axis of movement is implemented either by moving the table (into which the workpiece is attached), or by moving the tool. The actual configuration of axes varies; therefore machines with the same number of axes can differ in the movements that can be performed.


    Multi-axis machines offer several advantages, including:
  • Reduced Machining Time
  • Better Surface Finishes
  • Eliminate Multiple Set-ups
  • Reduced Machining Time
  • Eliminate Costly Tooling and Fixtures
  • Reduced Manual Hand Work
  • Machine Complex Bridges, Dental Bars & Implant Abutments Not Otherwise Possible



Full 35° A-Axis motion coupled with 360° B-Axis rotation enables the Versamill to produce even the most complex bridges, dental bars and implant abutments.

Not all 5-Axis Dental milling machines are equal in this key area of digital dental manufacturing. Milling machines offering anything less than the VersaMILL's robust range of rotational axis motion will simply not get the job done, forcing milling centers to outsource or spend hours producing an inferior product.

C ycle Time. How long does it take your mill to machine a (insert restoration type here)?

This seems to be an area that the digital dental labs and milling centers are most concerned with and can likely be a key criterion in their purchase of a milling machine.

Of course machine cycle time is important but it is in reality, not a true gage of a milling machines production and effect on overall throughput and profitability.

While Versamills are capable of producing single unit zirconia restoration in as little as 6 minutes and titanium implant abutments in less than 20 minutes, our answer to this questions is typically: “How long do you want it to take”?

This may, on the surface, appear to be a flippant answer but in reality we are quite serious. Often time sacrifices are made and indeed even tolerated in the pursuit of fast cycle times.

    Sacrifices that include:
  • Decreased Cutting Tool Life
  • Increased Manual Bench time
  • Decreased Accuracy
  • Inferior Surface Finish (i.e. Occlusal Surfaces)
  • Poor Feature Definition (i.e. Margin Definition)
  • Increased Design Time



Does it make sense to be able to pull a restoration off of the milling machine in 4 minutes only to spend another 10 minutes on the bench to clean it up OR determine it is unacceptable thereby having to re-make it OR spend additional time designing the restoration to avoid machine issues OR spend additional money on expensive diamond tooling due to improper feed/speed rates, OR to sacrifice finish or detail, etc.?

The achievement of high quality, in terms of work-piece dimensional accuracy, surface finish, production rate, wear on the cutting tools and economy of machining in terms of cost saving are the main challenges of modern dental manufacturing.

Machine stability in terms of vibration dampening characteristics of the axes and spindle drive systems, spindle run-out, machine positional accuracy, cutting tool materials and geometry, machining parameters such as speed, feed, depth of cut and CAM programming strategies all play a factor in enabling you to reach your throughput and profitability objectives. We at Axsys not only have the PRODUCTS, we even more importantly, have the KNOWLEDGE and EXPERIENCE to maximize their effectiveness in pursuit of your goals and objectives.

With our products we can provide you with the throughput you need to be competitive while enabling you to ship superior product to your customers while yielding high, predictable profits. You may even find that with the VersaMILL and our expertise, an extremely quick return on investment can be realized in zirconia restoration alone; thanks to the tooling cost savings associated with our extremely long tool life (in many cases over 200 units per tool) from tooling that costs a fraction of what competitive solutions offer.



The combination of the rigid machine structure and the 60,000 rpm, 500 watt spindle enables the Versamill to quickly machine soft materials, while maintaining fine tolerances. With a feedrate over 1,000mm per minute productivity is high and cycle times are low.


The Versamill conforms to our philosophy of Open Solutions for the dental laboratory. It can be driven by any open CAM system and can utilize material readily available on the open market. It comes as standard with fixtures compatible with cartridges for holding 98.3mm discs of PMMA, Zirconia, Titanium and Cobalt Chrome. Fixtures for other shapes and sizes of work piece are available upon request.


The Versamill is normally run “wet”, using pure water for flushing the cutter when machining PMMA, Zirconia and glass or using coolant for metals. The 60,000 rpm spindle potentially allows very small cutters (e.g. 0.3mm Ø ball nosed cutters) to be used so that even the finest detail can be machined to a high precision.


Easy to Use. The machine is designed to be used by a dental lab technician, not necessarily by an experienced CNC operator! The integrated control has a very simple to use Graphical User Interface and can be configured to almost any language required. An optional video camera can be supplied and can be viewed remotely via the company network or internet to enable visual access to the work piece during machining for monitoring or diagnostics purposes.
