πdrive® Motor

At the core of this drill is our industry-exclusive πdrive Technology—a re-imagined motor that reconfigures internal components to create efficient, lightweight power and performance.

We’ve replaced the nonfunctioning steel core in conventional motors with magnets in a “pie” configuration that use space efficiently and reduce the size of the overall housing. Instead of traditional round wiring looped around the core, we’ve used flat wiring that completely encases it. The result is a light, powerful motor that runs long and stays cool.

The result is instrumentation that responds perfectly to the exact pressure you prefer. Once you’ve set your preferences, they’re saved permanently. Your instruments will perform to your specifications—every patient, every procedure.
