NSK NLX Nano LED Brushless Electric Handpiece System


NSK NLX Nano LED Brushless Electric Handpiece System

NSK announces the market’s first LED electric micromotor.


A New Generation of Micromotor as well balanced as an air turbine.

The NLX Nano system combines user-friendly ergonomic design with lightweight titanium. The NLX Nano micromotor weighs a mere 61 grams – up to 40% less than competitive units – making it the lightest motor in its class. Smooth, quiet, powerful, and versatile, the NLX Nano feature the market's first LED fiber optic micromotor. The NLX Nano has attachments available for all specialty areas and the system can be easily integrated into virtually any dental delivery system. 

Perfect Balance

The balance of the electric micromotor with attachment has
been dramatically improved with the introduction of the
NLX Nano. The overall length of the NLX Nano combined with the
speed increasing attachment is identical in overall length to a
highspeed air handpiece with coupler. The reduction in weight
and length of the 
NLX Nano micromotor lessens hand fatigue and
allows for a greater degree of control.

Over 25% Shorter and 20% Lighter

NLX Nano has been reduced in weight by 20% and
size by 25% compared to the current Brasseler
USA/NSK micromotor. Despite its smaller size and
lighter weight, 
NLX Nano is more powerful and offers
the same speed range as the current brushless
Brasseler USA/NSK clinical micromotor.

LED Fiber Optics

32,000* LUX of LED generates natural daylight-quality light, which assures clearer vision when compared to halogen light. No other electric motor on the market offers the LED feature. LED light sources are longer-lasting and more durable than halogen bulbs, saving you money. Pictured below.
