NSK launches Ti-Max Z series of handpieces
Electric handpieces launched in Canada.
HOFFMAN ESTATES, Illinois—NSK Dental has announced the U.S. launch of its Ti-Max Z Series of electric (contra-angle) dental handpieces in Canada.
The Ti-Max Z series features six instruments:
• Z95L: 1:5 increasing; Quattro spray; for FG burs
• Z85L: 1:5 increasing; single spray; for FG burs
• Z45L: 1:4.2 increasing; Quattro spray; for FG burs
• Z25L: 1:1 direct drive; single spray; for CA burs
• Z15L: 4:1 reduction; single spray; for CA burs
• Z10L: 16:1 reduction; single spray; for CA burs
The Ti-Max Z series represents next-generation micro production technology. Ti-Max Z series handpieces perform at a low noise level with virtually no vibration.
The Ti-Max Z series also features small heads and slim neck dimension to facilitate operational visibility, as well as easy access to difficult-to-reach oral regions. Moreover, NSK’s head cap design helps to limit and disperse heat generation during treatment, thereby helping maximize patient comfort and safety.
The Ti-Max Z series’ durability is the result of advanced engineering and product design. The handpiece bodies are made of solid titanium, which is 30% lighter than stainless steel yet durable and corrosion resistant. These handpieces also feature NSK’s latest surface enhancement technology, DURACOAT, which takes advantage of the nonallergic and biocompatible properties of titanium to further improve durability. DURACOAT creates a smooth, scratch-resistant surface that is also comfortable to hold.
The Ti-Max Z95L’s gear shapes were designed using High Spec 3-D simulation software to help ptimize durability and minimize noise. In addition, the gears’ special DLC Coating (Diamond-Like Carbon) further enhances durability. As a result, NSK tests show that the Ti-Max Z95L is more than twice as durable as any other comparable handpiece in the global market.
Another item in the line, the Ti-Max Z45L, is an electric (contra-angle) dental handpiece. This instrument provides access to hard-to-reach molars that a standard contra-angle simply cannot match. The slim design of the Ti-Max Z45L also offers excellent visibility and high operability, creating more space between the handpiece’s body and front and adjacent teeth. In addition, the Ti-Max Z45L’s powerful and consistent cutting shortens treatment time for sectioning and third-molar extractions, dramatically reducing stress for both clinicians and patients.
“We are proud and excited to be bringing the world’s most advanced electric handpieces to the Canadian market,” said Rob Gochoel, NSK’s director, sales and marketing. “Our Ti-Max Z handpieces deliver a combination of performance, durability, and access that until now was simply not available to Canadian dentists.”
All Ti-Max Z series handpieces carry a two-year warranty and fit all standard e-type electric micromotors. The line is being introduced to the Canadian marketplace via two introductory promotions through June 30, 2013:
• Buy a NLX nano electric micromotor and one Ti-Max Z series attachment, get one Ti-Max Z series attachment (of equal or lesser value) free
• Buy three Ti-Max Z series electric attachments, get one Ti-Max Z series electric attachment (of equal or lesser value) free
