1st prize in innovation category of „Salzburger Wirtschaftspreis“ 12.06.2017
W&H Dentalwerk Bürmoos GmbH with its world first in the field of air-driven high-speed dental preparation – with ACMIT technology included, was awarded the 1st prize of the „Salzburger Wirtschaftspreis“.
This renowned prize is awarded by the Federal State of Salzburg and the Salzburg Chamber of Commerce.
With its new drive technology for dental turbine handpieces W&H is first in the world to provide an innovative solution with very advanced and extended options for dental restoration and prosthetics. The handpieces are also the first to offer 100% shadow-free illumination of the treatment site with the ring-shaped LEDs on the small turbine head.
„To date dental turbines have poor control of the preparation speed and poor illumination of the treatment site. The unique combination of air drive and electronic control – in contrast to the classical turbine handpieces – gives our new Primea Advanced Air System adjustable, fully automatically controlled preparation conditions perfectly adapted to the treatment situation, such as are always required for intensive removal of substance or delicate finishing work. This offers dentists the best possible treatment conditions at all times“ said Dr. Wilhelm Brugger, R&D manager of W&H.
ACMIT contributed with basic concepts including prototyping both for sensor technology and for the shadowless ring-shaped LED illumination. Dr. Brugger said: „ACMIT provided us with very valuable basic developments, which have now been successfully converted into serial products. We look forward to further cooperating with ACMIT“.
Besides the advantages for the dentist, also the patient benefits from this new technology. Primea Advanced Air noticeably reduces duration of treatment and the familiar unpleasing operating noise of the tool.
This unique drive and lighting technology for dental turbines was also presented at the International Dental Show (IDS 2017) in Cologne this year.
