DentalEZ Group will unveil its NuTorque™ programmable electric handpiece system during this year’s ADA Meeting, which will take place October 16–18. 

NuTorque features a touch-screen display. NuTorque also features an auto-reverse, auto-reverse forward, and auto-reverse stop; torque control ranges from 0.1-3.0 Ncm with capabilities of 384 Ncm; 27 (+2) possible reduction ratios; fully customizable presets; a flat screen that wipes clean for better asepsis and a sharp display; and a screen that can be mounted remotely for user convenience.

The customizable touch-screen display includes three general procedure memory presets for common practices, such as cavity preparation, caries removal, and polishing; a speed/RPM display; an FO light; an on/off water spray; and an attachment gear ratio indicator. The main display provides a detailed and customizable set-up mode and endo mode, which includes five endo memory presets that can be individually designed and tailored to fit various endodontic procedures. 

The NuTorque is also equipped with a brushless motor that is compact and lighter than existing electric motors currently on the market, according to the company. The micro-motor of the NuTorque measures in at 4 inches and weighs less than 99 g.

The NuTorque system has a 3-year warranty on the control box unit; a 1-year warranty on the motor, tubing, and attachments; and a 1-year warranty on the transformer.
