Ultrasonic microvibrations can be generated by means of mechanical and electrical components. The advanced electronics and software of the device console to generate its unique, patented dual wave.

PATENTED TECHNOLOGY

Patented Technology

  • Mectron’s “dual wave technology” – overcomes the limitations of single wave, conventional ultrasonic technology
  • Primary wave between 24-36 KHz modulated by a secondary low frequency wave from 30 to 60 Hz
  • Dual wave maximizes cutting efficiency, ensures a seamless cutting action, and prevents bone overheating and necrosis.

PRIOPRIETARY FEEDBACK SYSTEM

  • Our unique Feedback System guarantees that insert and handpiece vibrate in unison, ensuring the best clinical performance.
  • Advanced safety control system automatically recognizes deviations from normal functioning in less than 0.1 seconds.
  • Built-in self-diagnostic system informs the user of the causes of malfunction, always ensuring safety and performance.
PIEZOSURGERY® HANDPIECE

PIEZOSURGERY® HANDPIECE

PIEZOSURGERY®’s unique cutting action results from the application of ultrasonic modulated vibrations generated by piezoelectric ceramic discs located in the handpiece to a surgical insert. Thanks to the sophisticated electronic controls, PIEZOSURGERY® inserts vibrate only along their longitudinal axis, thus maximizing cutting efficiency, with less mechanical stress on the insert tips and overall less heat generation.
technology_handpiece

  • High frequency electrical impulses from the console to the ceramics discs of the handpiece.
  • Electricity induces mechanical deformations of the ceramic discs, which are transferred into the titanium concentrator.
  • Vibrations in the concentrator transfer to the insert, generating its micrometric cutting action.
  • Inserts’ micrometric movement is mainly linear to maximize cutting efficiency along longitudinal axis of the handpiece.
