ModuleWorks establishes Business Area for Digital Dentistry

August 2, 2021

CAM technology sets the standard for high quality, cost-effective manufacturing of copings, crowns, inlays, veneers, bridges and dental implants. It also delivers an enhanced patient experience which is essential for retaining patients and winning new patients. To support CAM vendors and system suppliers in the dental market, ModuleWorks has established a strategic business area with a dedicated focus on digital dentistry.


From components to complete solutions

Dentists and dental technicians who use CNC machines powered by ModuleWorks maximize the efficiency and profitability of their labs and practices through simplified workflows, faster calculation times, faster machining times and longer tool life.


For OEM partners who want to take their existing solutions to the next level, the ModuleWorks product portfolio offers a comprehensive range of advanced multiaxis toolpath calculation software including components for fast and efficient roughing, rest-roughing and finishing as well as sophisticated and fully automated undercut finishing with full collision avoidance. Powerful 3D simulation components add further value through high-performance digital verification of stock removal and powerful error detection and analysis tools for right first time dental machining.


These advanced features are also part of ModuleWorks Dental Framework, a complete plug-and-play solution that combines additive and subtractive manufacturing, simulation, a toolset library and post processor in a unified, universally configurable and easy-to-use push button system that integrates seamlessly into existing OEM dental CAM systems.
