Performance Study on Miniaturized Rapid Denture Repair System


Article Preview

The paper presents a miniaturized two-spindle rapid denture repair system with applications on CAD/CAM dental restorations. The necessary functions possessed by denture processing system in medical treatment environment were defined, and the main technical parameters of the machining system were determined. The modal tests of the system structure were conducted for the key areas vibration mode. The volumetric geometric errors of the system were measured with laser interferometers. At last, the milling experiments of human molar crown denture were carried out with the mean surface roughness Ra value 0.8μm, which is consistent with the requirement of dental restoration.
