Ti-Max Z Series Electric Handpieces from NSK
Small head and slim neck dimensions offer outstanding operational visibility and better access for difficult-to-reach posterior preparations.
NSK’s newly introduced Ti-Max Z series electric attachment handpieces have moved the global market to a higher level of durability and performance, thanks to next-generation micro-production technology and new high-technology material options that have enabled the company to design and manufacture the most durable, high-performance handpieces in their class. Ti-Max Z series handpieces operate at a remarkably low noise level with virtually no vibration, enhancing clinician concentration and patient comfort. In addition, the most noticeable feature for the clinician is the fact that the Ti-Max Z series features the smallest head and slimmest neck dimensions of any electric attachment handpiece, allowing outstanding operational visibility and better access for difficult-to-reach posterior preparations.
The Ti-Max Z series vastly exceeds all current handpiece specifications for reliability and durability. The standard head’s high-speed Z95L gear shapes have been designed using its proprietary High Spec 3D simulation software to achieve optimal results in terms of durability and noise-level minimization. In addition, its special Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) Coating is applied to the gears, dramatically increasing sustained durability. Internal tests show that gear life is increased by more than twice the lifespan of existing electric attachment handpieces (data on file).
The Ti-Max Z electric attachment series handpieces also feature a titanium body that is 30% lighter than stainless steel as well as more durable and corrosion-resistant. The reduced weight and well-balanced shape give excellent tactile feedback for enhanced ergonomics. Furthermore, all Z series attachments contain DURACOAT, NSK’s surface enhancement technology, which takes advantage of the non-allergenic and bicompatible properties of titanium to further improve durability. DURACOAT creates a smooth, scratch-resistant surface, which is comfortable to hold.
Other Unique Features
Some other unique features include NSK’s unique head cap design, which helps limit heat generation and disperses heat better during treatment; Quattro (4 water ports) water spray to more effectively cool the entire operating field (available on the Z95L model); and a microfilter, which helps prevent particles from entering the water spray system to guarantee optimal water-spray cooling at all times.
Choosing the Right One for Your Practice
