As dental equipment migrates from pneumatic to electric power, the internal component requirements change as well. We have a rich history of supplying OmniSeal® APS seals, Meldin® 5530 shaft bearings, Meldin® 1000 piston rings and Meldin® 7000 rotary vanes for pneumatic equipment. Similarly, we have been specifying seals and bearings for electric dental tool applications.
Saint-Gobain Seals offers a number of sterilization resistant, low friction materials that are suitable for use in pneumatic and electric dental tools. These materials, in conjunction with low friction design options, can reduce the incidence of premature failure and extend maintenance cycles. Typical applications include rotary shaft seals and bearings, miniature motor seals, and rotary vanes.
