Today I am thrilled to present the Arum 5X-500 machine. This remarkable device is perfect for mid-sized dental labs that require efficient milling of various materials in large quantities. While we already have the 5X-200 milling machine with a spindle power of 3kw, we have developed the 5X-500 model to cater to customers who may have reservations about the higher price of the 5X-200.

Key Considerations for Buying a Milling Machine


Before we delve into the details of the Arum 5X-500, let's revisit the five essential factors to consider when purchasing a milling machine:

  1. Spindle quality

  2. Spindle power

  3. Machine weight

  4. Machine structure and organization

  5. Milling quality and machine durability

Introducing the Arum 5X-500


The Arum 5X-500 features a spindle developed by SycoTec, a renowned German manufacturer. With a spindle power of 2.2kw, this machine offers reliable milling capabilities for a wide range of materials, including Co-Cr disks. The 5X-500 incorporates a zero-point system that allows for precise, fast, and flexible clamping of parts. It provides convenience in attaching and removing various cartridges, such as regular round type, T-type, C-type, and CAD block cartridges. Additionally, the machine boasts a tool changer capable of accommodating 20 different tools.


Comparison with Competing Machines


Let's now compare the Arum 5X-500 with machines from our competitors. While three major brands are vying for market share, VHF R5 differs significantly, making a detailed comparison irrelevant for customers.

One notable distinction is the spindle brand used in the Arum 5X-500, setting it apart from machines produced by Amann Girrbach and Imes-icore. We firmly believe that the Sycotec spindle offers superior performance in heavy-duty material milling. In terms of spindle power, the Arum 5X-500 surpasses both Amann Girrbach and Imes-icore machines. Additionally, the weight of the Arum machine distinguishes it from its competitors, which are considerably lighter.

At Arum, we prioritize machine durability and performance. As previously mentioned when discussing the 5X-450 model, we advise against using its 1.28kw spindle power for Co-Cr disk milling. Instead, we recommend the 5X-500 with its 2.2kw power, capable of handling all types of milling materials, including Co-Cr disks. This commitment to ensuring longevity aligns with our company policy.

However, our competitors seem to have a different perspective. According to the provided comparison table, they believe that machines with weaker spindle power and lighter weight can handle any task. We firmly stand by the Arum 5X-500 as the superior choice, providing stability and reliability as a workhorse in your dental lab.


With its powerful spindle, innovative features, and exceptional performance, this device is an excellent investment for mid-sized dental labs. By considering the key factors in purchasing a milling machine and recognizing the advantages of the Arum 5X-500 over competing models, you can make an informed decision that will positively impact your lab's productivity and efficiency.
