Lube-free High-Speed Handpiece
The 430 SWL LubeFree high-speed handpiece is designed to promote infection control and increase dental efficiency
The 430 SWL LubeFree high-speed handpiece is designed to promote infection control and increase dental efficiency. Its patented LubeFree Autochuck turbine has a quick bur changing feature, and no residual lubricant is expelled into the oral cavity. The unit's small head, high torque design improves visibility and accessibility. High power enables fast, precise removal of tooth surface and amalgam.

Made of electropolished, lightweight stainless steel, the handpiece is durable and can withstand autoclaving temperatures of 121 or 135 °C or chemiclaving temperature of 132°:C. It has a scalloped handle that can eliminate grooves where debris and bacteria can accumulate.

Other features include:

  • Starbright fiber-optic glass, which can stand up to steam and chemical vapor sterilization, has 17% more light transmission than the previous model's fiber optics, and offers a 100% increase in fiber optic life
  • 360-degree Quick-Connect Swivel, which reduces tubing drag and allows greater operator comfort, also permits quick change of handpieces at chairside without engaging and recoupling each handpiece after sterilization
  • Vortex air seal, which extends turbine life by preventing the deposit of foreign debris into turbine bearings. It also seals the turbine from debris that comes up the bur shaft and blocks drive air leakage to prevent lubricants and contaminants from affecting the bond strength of restorations.
