StarDental introduces NuTorque Lite programmable electric handpiece system

Feb. 22, 2010
StarDental's NuTorque line offers affordable electric choices.

MALVERN, Pennsylvania--DentalEZ Group, a supplier of products and services for dental health professionals worldwide, has announced expanding its StarDental line of electric handpiece systems with the introduction of the new NuTorque Lite.

A modified version of the NuTorque programmable electric handpiece system, the NuTorque Lite is an economical option for dental professionals seeking a less-aggressive entry point into utilizing an electric handpiece system.

It is a choice for dental professionals to perform general dental practice procedures, as well as basic endodontic procedures.

Much like the original NuTorque programmable electric handpiece system, the NuTorque Lite is intuitive. Dental professionals will be able to control the system's features with easy-to-use push-button controls.

Benefits of the NuTorque Lite system include:

* Two customizable memory presets for general and endo procedures
* Speed, gear ratio, and forward/reverse direction settings
* Universal E-type motor coupling accepts seven different NuTorque attachments
* Adjustable light intensity
* Autoclavable, brushless motor

The NuTorque Lite system provides maximum flexibility for a variety of individual solutions. The display screen includes useful options, such as two fully customizable memory presets for commonly used gear ratios, RPMs, and direction.

The NuTorque Lite is also equipped with a brushless motor that is compact and lighter than existing electric motors currently on the market. Measuring in at a mere six inches and weighing less than 76 grams, the balanced, lightweight micromotor of the NuTorque Lite enables the dental professional to maneuver comfortably throughout the oral region.

With the NuTorque Lite system, dental professionals are provided the freedom to perform various individual procedures while delivering consistent speed and torque on high- and low-speed settings.

The whisper-quiet, vibration-free motor system is also easily adaptable to existing standard delivery units. Moreover, NuTorque Lite's micromotor is fully autoclavable.

NuTorque Lite attachments feature lightweight, durable, and corrosion-resistant titanium housings that provide a firm, tactile grip. The lightweight attachments grant the handpiece balance and help reduce hand and wrist fatigue.

NuTorque Lite features seven attachment options, including the new Straight Doriot. The NuTorque attachments have a number of features and benefits, including:

* Push-button autochuck for bur placement/removal
* Quick, simple connections with 360-degree rotation
* A wide speed range of up to 200,000 rpm
* Ergonomic grips relieve user fatigue
* Cellular glass rod fiberoptics (except new Straight Doriot)
* Universal E-type coupling
* Attachments are fully autoclavable

The slender angulation of NuTorque Lite attachments permits intraoral access and sight lines.

StarDental's NuTorque Lite system has a three-year warranty on the control box unit, a one-year warranty on the motor, tubing, and attachments, and a one-year warranty on the transformer.
