ProService Tips

  • Does my transmission instrument need maintenance?

    Whether straight or contra-angle handpieces, couplings or turbines transmission instruments can suddenly fail. To maximise the service life of your instrument and minimise the risks of them failing, we recommended annual maintenance. Whether your instruments are maintained regularly or not, it is worth knowing the signs that indicate a need for maintenance or repair. Here are some of the signs that your transmission instrument many need to be sent off for maintenance or repair:

    • Increased heat from the instrument
    • Unusually strong vibrations
    • Increased volume
    • Lower power/speed
    • Reduced bur holding force
    • Decreasing light intensity/light fluctuations
    • Reduced spray intensity/spray fluctuations
    • Coolant failure or leakage

    If you notice one or more of the above-mentioned operating malfunctions, contact an authorised "W&H service partner".

  • Safety technical checks for medical devices

    To ensure safety of users, patients and third parties, medical electrical devices must be checked regularly. For this reason, the Medical Devices Act provides safety checks. During the check, it is determined whether a device is functional, electrically safe and in proper condition at the time of inspection. The safety check must be carried out every three years or according to the manufacturer's instructions. For W&H devices such as Implantmed or Piezomed, the safety check is mandatory every three years. National regulations can include exceptions for shorter inspection periods.

    The safety check may only be carried out by qualified companies and institutions. These companies confirm the proper functioning of the devices and thus ensure the safety of patients, users and third parties.

    Safety checks are necessary for all W&H stand-alone devices, including: Implantmed, Elcomed, Piezomed, Pyon, Tigon/Tigon+ or Proxeo Ultra.

  • Maintenance at the touch-of-a-button

    After 35 seconds, our Assistina 301 plus leaves a perfectly maintained transmission instrument. The maintenance process starts automatically at the touch of a button. The automatic rotational lubrication ensures optimum distribution of the oil and that an even film of lubricant is created. Dirt particles are loosened and removed. The lifespan of the straight- and contra angle handpieces and turbines is significantly increased whilst service costs are reduced.

    But our Assistina 301 plus also needs a little care. Our tip: Check the functionality of your device once a week: the liquid level, the position and condition of the O-rings, the filter, and the tightness of the connections.

    The "weekly checklist" gives you an overview.

  • What are maintenance kits? And why are they so smart?

    All equipment is exposed to a certain amount of wear over time. This wear may be aesthetic or more importantly cause a system fault. Maintenance kits are designed to reduce this as they contain the spare parts that need to be replaced on a regular basis, no more and no less!

    Maintenance kits are designed either for end users or for service partners and are tailored to a defined product. A popular example are our maintenance kits for W&H sterilizers, which are normally used to carry out the recommended service after 800 or 4,000 sterilization cycles.

    • Service after 800 cycles: Do it yourself! The spare parts included in the maintenance kit can be replaced by the end user. The costs can be calculated exactly. Using original spare parts contributes to the long service life of the sterilizer.
    • Service after 4,000 cycles: The service after 4,000 cycles can only be carried out by an authorized service technician or a specialist workshop. The device must be opened and the parts included in the maintenance kit must be replaced. The costs for this can also be calculated exactly.

    Maintenance kits thus offer absolute cost transparency. The advantage over purchasing individual spare parts is obvious. For information on all available maintenance kits, please contact your
    "W&H service partner".

  • Perfect cleaning – without tools

    Surgical interventions are always challenging. So, in order to meet the high hygiene requirements, the W&H S and WS surgical handpiece ranges allow for quick easy disassembly quickly and easily. This is simple to do and does not require tools. Effective cleaning also extends the service life of your instruments. The surgical straight and contra-angle handpieces can then be reassembled just as quickly and easily.

    How to properly disassemble and reassemble our surgical contra-angle handpiece WS-75 is shown in this "video".
