Title:
ADDRESSABLE MATRICES/CLUSTER BLANKS FOR DENTAL CAD/CAM SYSTEMS AND OPTIMIZATION METHOD THEREOF
Document Type and Number:
Japanese Patent JP2010131395
Kind Code:
A
Abstract:

To enable blank interchangeability, maximize yield per blank, reduce material waste, to maximize the system's versatility, selection of materials and efficiency of operation, and to reduce inventory of blanks thus reducing operating costs associated with commercial CAD/CAM systems.

A cluster mill blank includes a framework constructed to cooperate with a blank holder of an existing CAD/CAM system, and a plurality of sub-blanks attached to the framework forming an addressable matrix or cluster blank. CAD/CAM systems including such framework, as well as associated methods are described.
