Straight and contra-angle handpieces portfolio is now complete – Sirona launches the economy-class T3 09/10/2012

The new T3 handpieces follow in the wake of the premium-class T1 and comfort-class T2 models. Available as from September, the economy-class T3 handpieces offer outstanding durability, robustness and efficiency. Sirona has now put a truly cost-effective solution at the dentist’s fingertips.

Bensheim/Salzburg, 10 September, 2012. Price-conscious users who value a cost-effective workflow no longer have to make any quality related compromises. The newly introduced economy-class T3 augments Sirona’s existing portfolio of straight and contra-angle handpieces and is based on the success of the premium-class T1 and comfort-class T2. The functions of the T3 have been reduced to the essentials, thus delivering outstanding value for money.

“With the T3 we have extended our handpiece portfolio in terms of breadth and depth,” explains Frank Peichl, Product Manager at Sirona. “Regardless the concept a dentist opts for in his or her practice, we are now positioned to supply the right handpieces. Following the introduction of the T3 alongside the existing T1 and T2 models our portfolio of straight and contra-angle handpieces is now complete.” In all three classes Sirona has maintained its dedication to quality, hygiene, design and ergonomics. The experience gained with the T1 class has been transferred to the extended and differentiated product portfolio. Hygiene is a good example. Like its predecessors, the T3 handpieces are equipped with an anti-retraction system and can be sterilized/thermally disinfected up to a maximum temperature of 134 °C.

A robust exterior combined with a high-tech core: Sirona’s outstanding technical know-how manifests itself in the economy-class T3 handpieces. The practically indestructible titanium sleeve and the ceramic ball bearings stand for advanced technology “made in Germany” and enable dentists to achieve dependable results across a broad spectrum of applications. In combination with the ISO interface the robust T3 handpieces are compatible with all conventional micromotors and thus universally deployable.

Sirona’s economy-class handpieces deliver top quality on a sustained return on investment.

To sum up: users of the T3 economy-class handpieces are in a position to achieve high-precision preparations and optimum treatment results. Robust, indestructible, chrome-plated, functional, without a built-in light source and available at a fair price: these are the defining features of the T3 models.

The T3 Economy Class at a glance:

  • Extensive portfolio of high-quality straight and contra-angle handpieces for every budget
  • Extremely robust titanium sleeve
  • ISO interface for all conventional micromotors
  • Ceramic ball bearings
  • Without light
  • Up to two years’ warranty
