hyperDENT®

FOLLOW-ME! Technology Group’s sole product focus is to develop and deliver a CAM software that is dedicated to the dental market. This not only allows us to quickly adapt to the functional requirements of our customers, but also bring new and innovative features first to market with our core product hyperDENT®.

hyperDENT incorporates efficient proven milling cycles from the industrial segment that provide maximum process stability and indication quality.  For example, the patent protected peeling strategies used for complex materials such as glass ceramic ensures perfect surface quality while simultaneously maximizing tool life.

Based on a modular product structure, hyperDENT targets different dental market segments from small and mid-sized dental laboratories, to milling centres and high-production laboratories.  Customers can choose which hyperDENT version best suits their business needs from one of our two core products: hyperDENT Compact or hyperDENT Classic.  Depending on individual needs, customers can also add-on software from the hyperDENT Options range.

 

hyperDENT Compact Logo

 

 

As the demand for in-house milling production began to rise steadily, a simple to use, lighter edition of hyperDENT was created.  This CAM software unlocks the true potential of common benchtop-type mills while staying sensitive to the lower-cost nature of this machine category.  All of the key advantages, of a fast, safe, efficient and precise workflow process that hyperDENT is renowned for, is maintained.  Therefore, although this edition is light, it contains all of the core requirements that any lab would need.  With its user-friendly interface, extensive training is not required and can therefore be used by technicians without previous CAD/CAM experience.

 

hyperDENT Classic Logo

 

 

FOLLOW-ME!’s flagship product allows for the in-house production of ALL your digitally designed dental applications.  Its robust features and unique customization options give labs and milling centers complete control of their manufacturing needs.

Containing all that is included in Compact, this version is a step up and is suitable for large-sized labs, where simultaneous production on multiple projects is required.  Features such as multipart roughing contribute to workflow efficiency by reducing material waste, increasing tool life and decreasing milling times.  Additionally, customers are able to create their own part types to clarify a wider range of products within the software.  This enables the customer to specify separate parameters and toolpaths for their newly created indications.

 

hyperDENT Options Logo

 

 

Staying up-to-date with new CAD/CAM technology can be difficult without a CAM product that gives its users flexibility and expandability.  hyperDENT Options allows for add-on modules so that users can either manufacture new types of indications or customize their current capabilities and solutions.

The hyperDENT grinding module adds special toolpaths for the production of glass ceramics. These toolpaths specifically address the complications of grinding with water-cooled diamond cutters, for the highest quality and most efficient production of these materials.

The hyperDENT full denture module is a fully automated CAM feature that cuts out more than half of the steps required in the traditional full denture process. It is one of the first full denture capable software systems that utilizes automated tool paths and parameter calculations. This includes both the lower and upper jaw components, which allows for easy digital handling and is particularly beneficial for novice users.

The hyperDENT template generator is for advanced CAM users who need to create individualized machining templates to respond with total flexibility to new tools, materials, and restorations. With this module, hyperDENT possesses a unique and flexible selling point in the market like no other, as other CAM suppliers create the machining templates s and then sell them on to the customer.

The hyperDENT abutment creator enables the milling of individual abutments, implant bars, and screw-retained bridges.  Due to the tested libraries of interface geometries, these complex restorations can be milled easily with high-quality results. It also disregards the inconsistency of implant interface geometries from different CAD systems and scan adapter libraries, by replacing the geometry with a perfectly fitting alternative.

Freedom of Material Selection

Choosing hyperDENT as your CAM software gives you 100% freedom of choice in your material selection. As a result, neither you or your customers are restricted due to compatibility limitations, empowering you to decide the level of quality you wish to produce. It also allows for integration of materials that are brand new to the market.

Indications

With the evolution of digitalization in the dental industry, possibilities for indications are on the rise. hyperDENT allows its’ customers to mill:

 Coping  Coping bridges  Crowns  Crown bridges  Abutments  Abutment bridges → Abutment crown bridges  Inlays and Onlays  Inlays and Onlay bridges  Telescopes  Overpresses  Bitesplints  Models Model Stumps  Full lower Dentures  Full upper Dentures  Full Dentures

Secure Workflow

Consistency checking features work throughout the whole hyperDENT V7.0 workflow process.

For example, if a part has been incorrectly placed, you will be notified with a warning or error message. You will get this when something has occurred outside from your customized default settings.

Another very useful function is the calculate if feature. As the operator, you can predetermine hypothetical situations and enter them in to the calculate if mode.

For example, when changing between blank sizes, calculate if will identify this and automatically choose the correct tools and groove depths to be used. This makes it much easier to customize options to suit any situation.

Furthermore, the default collision check settings ensure that the holder is clear of collisions in 3 and 5 axis machining jobs. For every job, the collision check setup function in the template parameters can be used for either the tool or tool and holder mode. A popup screen will show any incorrect workflow situations that are occurring, giving the operator a view of what may be going wrong.

Independent Operation

hyperDENT is the only CAM product that provides a full-sized template generator enabling customers to create their own milling strategies in a simple, straightforward manner.  This allows customers to operate independently from their CAM supplier and protect their milling knowledge, as the need to divulge milling strategies is not required.

Ease of Use

Intuitive operational guidance without restrictions

Load the piece, position it, calculate – and you’re done. hyperDENT has a unique choice of functionality, reducing or simplifying the user’s tasks.

Load Wizard automatically specifies the order of individual work steps for the user, significantly simplifying the process.

Blank management allows you to quickly and easily locate and re-machine blanks that have been partially used.

The automatically positioned connectors and sinter pins can be added quite simply with the click of a mouse, or parametrically.  Connectors on objects already positioned in the blank can then be cut or partially reduced.

Several objects can be placed wherever you like within an un-machined part, simply by moving and turning them using the mouse.  The position of the pieces is automatically checked for integrity and machinability.

Objects can be height-optimized using the ‘object alignment’ function, whereby the object is turned within the blank to minimize the space it requires.  Fitting parts into smaller blanks means faster milling times, decreased tool wear, and lower material costs.

Direct interfaces with all major CAD systems ensure that data is carried over with additional information, such as margin lines and emergence profiles.  This simplifies the workflow and reduces the number of manually defined work steps.

The template generator, although complex in functionality, is easy for a lab technician without extensive machining experience to navigate.  Toolpaths are described using dental terminology, such as “finishing margin line” or referring to the occlusal and cavity side of a part.  Choosing new tools and parameters can be done from drop down menus, and drag and drop toolpaths for reordering.

Autonesting eliminates the need for operators to manually calculate and/or estimate the optimal positioning of objects.  Operators can now choose individual nesting parameters which can be adjusted according to each different fixture or machine.  These can then be saved and used for future projects.  Additionally, multiple objects can be loaded simultaneously and can be processed within these parameters.

User defined areas allow technicians to manually select and define a specific area of a dental object which they feel may require special attention.  For example, the technician may wish to select a finer tool to be used on a specific area, in order to achieve even greater detail.  On top of this, the technician can manually select the direction and angle in which the tool should operate within the user defined area.

High Performance

High Performance – Fast and extremely reliable

Time is one of the deciding factors in the production of dental prostheses.  Fast calculation and milling times should be achieved without damaging process reliability.  No other CAM software has the functionalities that are built into hyperDENT that allow this to be achieved providing hyperDENT users with a clear-cut advantage.

With multi-core support, tool path calculations are simultaneously delivered to all the processor’s cores, leading to a significant reduction in calculation time.

Depending on the job, tool format and depth of immersion, the boundaries of the milling area are automatically widened, avoiding a potential collision.

Automatic blank-tracking ensures process reliability for roughing and the machining of rest-material.

An optional depth-limiter for tool paths, and automatic selection of the right tool length, prevent machining errors and the production of rejects.

An automatic collision control in both 3-axis and 5-axis modes, and an optional control for tool collisions against blanks, blank holders and tool holders, prevent any costly milling accidents.

An automatic check of the machine’s axis limitation results in calculations that are immediately interrupted if an error should occur.

During the production of screw-retained abutments, the screw channel is automatically recognized, and hyperDENT’s internal geometry is regenerated to remove any inconsistencies in the scanning and design process.

High Quality Results

Perfect fit, perfect surface quality

The result is what counts – and this can be judged by the fit and surface quality.  Milling algorithms are the key to achieving excellent results in these areas.

With hyperDENT you can achieve an extremely good fit exactly where it is needed; the margin line, the abutment connection geometry, or the screw seat area in the screw channel.  This gives you high-precision dental restorations, without sacrificing fast machining times.

With hyperDENT, margin lines can be manufactured to perfection. Special circular equidistant milling strategies ensure that thin edges can be machined in zirconium oxide without damage to the margin line, despite the quick processing times.
