With the mission of creating "brilliant progress" via "innovative grinding technology," we aim to solve social issues through our three business fields of dental, medical, and industrial products. We have published a new "Sustainability Report" in place of our existing "Environmental Report". Here we introduce our ESG-related initiatives.
Spray air contributes significantly to spray mist in dental instruments. The addition of the Switch Valve, which turns off the coolant air, allows contra angle handpieces to reduce the water aerosols by as much as 50%.
NSK has invented a spray switch for contra-angle handpieces that lets you choose between the Water Spray (water+air) and Water Jet (water only). No other handpiece brand offers this proprietary convenient and effective infection prevention feature. Eliminating spray air could not be easier - simply twist the switch.
iProphy mobile has been developed to deliver comfortable and smooth polishing performance. The cordless design produces stress-free treatment realized by no foot control and stable rotation throughout procedures.
In conformity with FDA guidance, we created the movie and the web page which indicates reprocessing procedure of air turbines and contra-angles. It leads to prevention of infection by reprocessing according to this procedure. In addition, it can prevent poor maintenance of instruments as well as contribute to the safety of patients and users.
We are pleased to announce the opening of the new Research & Development (R&D) center building, "RD1" on 11 April 2017. Its primary function is to provide a facility that will ensure more efficient operations and R&D functions and deliver innovative products in a timely manner. Within the new building will be a showroom for guests from all over the world and a symposium facility that can accommodate 400 people allowing us to enhance our innovation progress.
The RD1 operation contributes to NSK's continuous growth through management of three key areas being development, manufacturing and sales.
The Ti-Max Z45L, the premium model in NSK's Contra-Angle Series, won the gold in the newly-established "Dental & ENT Surgical Tools" category of the 2015 Edison Awards as the world's first 45-degree contra-angle. The model was selected for the gold from amongst several hundred products for being an innovative product that offers excellent accessibility, a stable rest, and superb visibility making stress-free treatment a reality.
As specialists in ultra-high-speed rotary equipment, NSK is passionate about creating innovative products that deliver outstanding value. NSK manufactures almost all parts in-house to guarantee the highest precision, reliability and unmatched performance of all products. The Ti-Max Z contra-angle and air turbine series resulted from NSK's constant quest to make the impossible possible.

Ti-max Z45L provides effortless access to hard-to-reach molars that a standard contra-angle simply can't match. The slim-form Ti-max Z45L also offers excellent visibility and high operability, creating more space between adjacent teeth and the handpiece body. Ti-max Z45L's powerful and consistent cutting shortens treatment time for time-consuming sectioning and third-molar extractions compared to standard contra-angles, dramatically reducing stress for both clinicians and patients.
In addition, Ti-max Z45L boasts the world's first two-way spray function, making it suitable for a wide range of procedures such as third-molar preparation and clarifications of the root canal orifice.
