Introduction of the Optima MX, a compact solution allowing professionals to perform all their procedures at high speed or low speed, including endodontics, with only two contra- angles. Five programmable memories facilitate operation of the Optima MX, the first control unit fitted with the powerful MX motor, brushless and without sensors, autoclavable and insensitive to fluid infiltration.Transfer of electric motor production to Noirmont, in the Jura. Optimization of the production line.
|| MX, the new autoclavable high-performance motor, is combined with the DMX electronic kit. This control, which can be incorporated in existing units, makes the very latest technology available to the integrators and manufacturers of dentists' chairs. New Laboratory line consisting of two practical, ergonomic control units. Prolab and Prolab Basic now include the most powerful motor on the market, derived from the revolutionary MX micromotor.
||Launch of the new Eolia® entry-range turbine and of the new straight HP 1:2 handpiece with external spray and speed increasing ratio of 2. It is used for restoration and implantology work and for extracting wisdom teeth.
||OPTIMA MX INT offers the same benefits as OPTIMA MX while being integratable into existing chairs. A new, very easy and instinctive navigation system and pre-recorded programmes distinguish it from the table-top version.
Sales release of the first shaver for ENT under the name OSSEODUO.
||The spring of 2009 sees the advent of top-of-the-range turbines, with a carbon-fibre handle.
With numerous improvements offering unique ergonomics, CHIROPRO-L, for its part, introduces a new generation of implantology systems.
The young Laboratory Division becomes Bien-Air Laboratory in 2009.
It meets the expectations of dental technicians faced with increasingly high aesthetic and economic demands. Bien-Air Laboratory proposes a CAD/CAM system consisting of CNC machines, an imprint scanner and flexible, user-friendly software.
