    Dental mill?

    I am looking for a mill for high precision and I don’t need much of a work envelope (4x4x2”) 3-4 axis work.
    Should I get a dental mill?
    I want sub micron machining
    I will be machining steels and titanium maybe zirconium if i can

    Re: Dental mill?

    Are you referring to something like a Roland DWX series mill?

    If so I do not believe the Roland is appropriate for machining steel.

    Where are you located, is local support a concern?

    Mate, I don't want to be rude, but I don't think that you will find this kind of information on a forum. This place is more for amateurs, so I recommend you speak with a professional in this field if you want some excellent pieces of advice. For instance, when I have dental problems, I always consult my dentist who works for https://www.bridgedentalsmiles.co.uk...oth-whitening/.So from my perspective, it would be better if you will also speak with a dentist. Wish you the best of luck.
