    Just got a new 30s mill into the office today.  Pretty cool mill, one tool, but should be about the same speed as the 40.  And lower cost.  Might be a good second mill for some or a great entry level mill.

    Maybe E4d can trade out my new 40s for 2 of these 30s mills. I have had nothing but issues with the 40s  since we got it almost a year ago. Jeff

    HI,   I am forwarding a question posed by a client who has a bit of difficulty posting in English and who has a problem with thread milling.He needs to mill M1 threads with a special thread mill (expensive), the core diameter of the thread is 0.76mm, the mill cutter OD is 0.73mm.Given the tiny…

    Anybody have any experience with the new 40s mill? Benefits vs. previous model? Rumored to mill pucks?

    Quick question? Was milling a three unit Telio provisional this morning for an immediate extraction case fractured tooth #3. Bur snapped and distal abutment #2 did not completely mill. Worked out as I just hollowed out both abutments, #4 was fine though, and relined it with Luxatemp. My understanding and correct me if I'm wrong…

    I have just got in my first quantity of GC Cerasmart to try. I still have the cart system which my understanding has no more software updates available. Am I able to mill the ceramart on the same settings as the lava ultimate? I assume that I will still need to use the defoamer solution…

    Dr. and I have been throwing around the idea of designing a Maryland type bridge. Based on the picture attached, can anyone tell me if A) This is possible to mill, and B) what material would be best. Thanks for the input!

    What does the term"walking bur" mean? This occurred and as a result the restoration was incompletely milled. An error message occurred stating bur is loose in collet and collet needs to be cleaned.

    Yes that's what a walking bur means, collet looses it's grip and the bur moves out of position.  Servicing the collets will usually fix the issue.  Sometimes the collets wear out and need to be replaced which isn't a big deal.  Best advice, be sure whoever is doing the mill maintenance is doing it correctly…

    Help! I am having an issue that SOS support does not seem to be able to help me with. I am getting the communication error (ie. check network and that job server is on etc.) when I attempt to send a crown to the mill. Also when I turn on my mill I get the…

    Why does the mill have an error message at the start of milling a restoration? UNABLE TO DETECT BLOCK DATA The block is inserted correctly. Thiis is happening more frequently in the last month.  This seems to be happening at random. After the error message appears the mill jobs stops and I will start the…

    Hi Folks,   The first week after our Integration day, we have had 3 broken bats (burs) in the right side collet... Everything has been going fine, was milling a Telio Block 2 wing temp Maryland bridge, and whammo!   Right side broken tool....Didn't have a replacement available to load in, so I had to…

    make sure you are running a mill simulation and checking for a good mill. A lot of this is based on orientation especially for bridges. I mill a bunch bunch of very large Telio cases for large implant cases. It is hard on the mills because the acrylic gums up the burs. But the mills…

    I have one of the old 40k mills. I've been trying transition from our old way of design and mill after the pt left with delivery 1 to 2 days out. I've started timing the same day crowns we're doing more and more of, and find the mill time is killing me. I just did…

    We have the original mill 7 years old. Nothing can be done, no updates available. I agree it takes 5 minutes to generate a mill path. Restorations anywhere from 12-18 minutes not including the 5 minutes to generate mill path. Argh too slow but is it worth it to spend the money for a new…

    I hope the title of this thread got your attention, because what I am about to show you will most probably save you frustration, time and money!  I am in the middle a bridge case with two "bridges" (actually splinted crowns) 22-24 and 25-28.  After 20 minutes or so milling 22-24, the elliptical bur breaks!…

    Hi,   Yes, re-set the Orientation (I called it path of insertion, sorry) for the unit that is attached to the sprue just before milling and set it such that all retainers will draw from their preps as if you were surveying the preps to avoid any undercuts in that orientation (or path of insertion).…

    Please could anyone help me?. I am about to mill a crown but I can't tighten the block into the cam slot. It is going in normally but just won't tighten.

    If I'm reading your post correctly, I have had something similar happen before. We have very hard water here in Las Vegas, and I have noticed a calcium buildup where we tighten the hex to load the block. One day I couldn't do that and so I took the steel wire brush and cleaned some…

    Has any one had this problem. Tech support hasn't been very helpful. We have had 3-4 crowns do this (see photo). Our mill will re-calibrated and then it has happen twice this week.   Thanks for your thoughts.   Jono Bauter

    Jono,   You don't set it, it was a software update a year or so ago.  So if your mill software is current and you have one of the newer mills (gray plastic trim or planmill) then you should be milling emax on the "fast" cycle.

    Today, Microsoft ended support of Windows XP...leaving any machine that is running XP AND connected to the internet vulnerable to viruses / hackers, etc.  I'm not too concerned, but it would be nice to see an "official" statement from E4D / Planmeca...Gary are you listening?   Alex
