Kavo Intra Lux – Intra with Light
Kavo Intra Lux combines variety with extreme precision. Light transmission is excellent, while each component meshes with vibration free perfection. To put the 25,000 lux generated by the fiber optics of the Kavo Intra Lux into perspective, this is just below the level of having concentrated direct sunlight illuminating the patient’s mouth.
With Kavo Intra Lux, the company is defining the rules which govern gear driven dental handpieces capable of high speeds. Absolutely no room for error, or misalignment, here and Kavo seems to be creating the science as they go. Many of us seem to forget the enormous problems which arise when combining high speeds (approaching 200,000 rpm) with gear driven metal to metal contact.
- Metal causes friction
- Friction causes heat
- Heat damages components
Kavo Intra Lux – Resists Heat
Kavo Intra Lux solves the problem by using materials resistant to conduction and heat transfer, while providing cooling to the exact points of expected failure. Or should we say, least likely to succeed, because we never really expect Kavo to engineer anything capable of failure.
