Zirconia processing: the right tool makes the difference

The Faculty of Mechanical and Process Engineering of the Augsburg University of Applied Sciences has carried out a scientific benchmark test of dental technology tools for zirconia machining. The result: The choice of milling tools has a significant effect on the quality and efficiency of the machining process. The winner of the benchmark is a tool from Hufschmied Zerspanungssysteme GmbH. Hufschmied tools make the difference – in terms of quality, machining times and costs!


Advantages at one glance:

  • up to 40 percent less defective parts
  • longer service life
  • suitable for even the finest structures
  • specifically adapted geometry
  • patented high-quality diamond coating
  • highest accuracy in milling
  • square performance of 99% can be maintained even after the last tested circular blank
  • Hufschmied has a profound understanding of machining process and material characteristics
