The NuTorque system, the latest in the company's line of StarDental products, is an intuitive electric handpiece. Dental professionals will experience maximum control with minimum effort using NuTorque's unique easy-to-use touch screen display.

The system's touch screen capabilities can make procedures more efficient and productive.

• Screen can also be mounted remotely for user convenience

The NuTorque system provides flexibility for a variety of individual solutions. The customizable touch screen display includes numerous useful options, such as three general procedure memory presets for common practices including cavity preparation, caries removal, and polishing; a speed/RPM display; an FO light; an on-off water spray; and an attachment gear ratio indicator.

Moreover, the main display also provides a detailed and customizable set-up mode and ENDO mode. The ENDO modeh includes five endo memory presets that can be individually designed and tailored to fit various endodontic procedures.

The NuTorque 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 four inches and weighing less than 99 grams, the balanced, lightweight micro-motor of the NuTorque enables the dental professional to maneuver comfortably and effectively throughout the oral region.

* Push-button autochuck for easy bur placement/removal

* Quick, simple connections with 360-degree rotation

* A wide speed range of up to 200,000 rpm
