HOFFMAN ESTATES, Illinois—Dental equipment manufacturer NSK Dental has announced launch of the 26-watt, standard head Ti-Max air-driven handpiece Z900L series, as well as the 23-watt, miniature head Ti-Max Z800L series.
“This is our biggest new product launch ever, as the Ti-Max Z900L is the first air-driven handpiece in the history of the dental industry that delivers 26 watts of power,” said Rob Gochoel, sales and marketing director for NSK Dental.
“This unprecedented torque reduces treatment time and provides remarkably smooth handling due to the high power output and a unique new turbine design. Equally impressive, the unprecedented 23 watts of power delivered by our new Ti-Max Z800L miniature head series exceeds the power delivered by nearly all standard head handpieces on the market today.”
Both the Ti-Max Z900L and Z800L series feature a new cartridge design to improve durability, smaller head sizes to enhance operational visibility, and cartridges that can be easily replaced chairside to save time and maintain practice productivity.
Both series also feature ergonomic, solid titanium bodies and NSK’s new DURAGRIP coating, which helps make the handpieces easy to hold even when wet. To further enhance ergonomics, the handpiece body features a notch for resting the thumb and index finger for maximum leverage.
A Quattro (4 port) water spray and 2.5-year warranty—NSK’s longest ever—complete the offering. Multiple back-end types are available to fit most competitive couplers, including KaVo and W&H.
As with NSK’s other air-driven and electric handpieces, 100% of the Ti-Max Z900L and Z800L series’ components are engineered, manufactured and assembled in house for quality and reliability.
