Air Driven Handpiece Systems
An air-driven handpiece rotates at 300,000 to 350,000 rpm; however, when placed under load, the handpiece actually cuts at 180,000 to 200,000 rpm.
Air-driven dental hand pieces operate using air energy to create a cutting or rotary motion.Air-driven high speed handpieces are a bit easier to handle than their electrical counterparts, touting reduced user fatigue and in some cases, a more comfortable user experience. Air driven high speed handpieces tend to have a higher speed, but a lower torque, especially as compared to an electrical piece.
