Meet the Technology

Digital Dentistry – Dental Technology

Our technology philosophy is based on the belief that both software and hardware ‘tools’ are huge enablers, provided the human capital managing them have intimate capabilities to produce dental restorations that meet and exceed the expectations of our dentists and patients.

At Schell, we believe that close collaboration with our dentists on ‘joint technology’ decisions and communication interfaces, will result in the optimum treatments from a oral healthcare, aesthetic and business perspective.


Ivoclar PrograMill PM7

The PrograMill PM7 sets new industrial standards for the digital production of restorations in the dental laboratory. The powerful performance and dynamics of this unit make it a highlight in the PrograMill portfolio. This high-power machine can process a variety of materials in wet and dry mode and is suitable for a wide spectrum of indications. The high dynamics and efficiency of the machine result in precise and fast production results. The 5-axis machining process is controlled via the integrated PC with touch-screen monitor.

iMes-iCore 450i

Schell currently has two of these mills, and between them there is no material they can’t handle. With the largest footprint of our mills, they can take cases of all sizes, and any material, and mill them in any required conditions.

Roland DWX-52DCi

The ultimate in ease, material flexibility and unattended production, the DWX-52DCi dental milling machine with automatic disc changer expands lab production. With a 6-slot Automatic Disc Changer, 15-station Automatic Tool Changer and other automated features, it gives an exceptionally powerful, efficient and affordable dental restoration solution. A smooth and steady ball screw-driven system provides superior milling results – simultaneously rotating and tilting discs for deep undercuts and milling large arch restorations and other full-mouth prosthetics.

Roland DWX-51D

Roland can handle any zirconia, PMMA, or wax we throw at it. With modern strategies, it is able to complete the most complicated restorations effectively and on time.

Wieland Zenotec Select Hybrid

With a built-in disc-changer, our Wieland mill is able to wet mill emax 24-hours per day. This is the workhorse of our glass ceramic production.


Our VHF mill has a small footprint and simple software, making it the go-to mill for any technician who needs to get a restoration out quickly.

3D Printer


Though we started with a perfactory Micro, the Form2 quickly became our stable printer. With this printer, we are able to produce dental models for use with any case while ensuring the quality of a restoration. As new materials become available, we are also finding that there is a future in temporary restorations, nightguards, deprogrammers and more coming.


Neo Super Cascom

Moving away from traditional casting, we are now utilizing the Neo Super Cascom. This machine is capable of melting and vacuum casting metals with repeatability and accuracy. With the Neo Super Cascom, we can melt metal at consistently the same temperature with the ability to stop oxidization of the metals. The machine then vacuum casts the metal to ensure that margins and detail come out crisp and clean every time.



The Dekema oven is the latest in zirconia and glass ceramic sintering. With it we can bake these materials at the right temperature for the right amount of time to get accurate restorations.



With 3Shape we can take all cases through a digital workflow from scanning to designing and model building. Every case goes through the digital system quickly and efficiently while still maintaining accuracy and quality.


Magic Touch is our internal system for case tracking. From a digital or phone request, we track the case from arrival to departure. We can easily find any case and its current requirements at the touch of a button. With Magic Touch we scan cases with a barcode system to convert our analog work to Digital milestones and analytics.


Sum3D is used during the milling step of our workflow and allows us to easily nest restorations into blanks, and calculate tool paths based on burs, materials, and type of restoration.


Preform is similar to Sum3D, but it is used for 3D printing. In 3Shape, files are converted to stl then exported to PreForm for printing. In PreForm we can manage print angles, supports, and materials along with accuracy and speed.



The mainstay of our scanning capability, the D2000 is top of the line in model scanning. With the ability to scan upper and lower at the same time and in high detail, this machine allows us to move cases through scanning, quickly.


Though older, this scanner still holds its own in quality of scan, and with new software, adaptive scanning has allowed it to keep up with even the most recent of scanners.


The latest in our scanning arsenal, the E1 is the newest release from 3Shape. This scanner is great for getting a lot of the more standard restorations on track and into production.
