The Barden Corporation has announced the launch of www.dentalbearings.co.uk, an innovative website specially developed to provide dental industry workers with information on their super precision range of dental turbine bearings.
The site was developed to directly provide users and manufacturers of high speed dental handpieces with clear, easy to understand details on how Barden's dental bearings can optimise performance of handpieces in terms of longer life, quieter operation and lowered repair costs.
Dental bearings operate in highly demanding environments. Repeated sterilisation, the depletion of lubricant over time and the effects of operating debris often cause them to fail prematurely. Barden's new website explains how precise engineering and manufacturing processes have addressed these issues and resulted in the development of bearings which can significantly increase the length of handpiece warranties. Improved shield designs retain lubricant more effectively and also prevent contamination of the bearing from operating debris, reducing wear on the bearings and increasing bearing life by up to four times that of traditional dental bearings.
Managing Director at Barden, Dr Graham Stirling comments: "The quality of bearings in a handpiece is critical to its performance. We believe that at Barden we have created the ideal combination, a bearing with the high specification and performance of a super precision product, while offering cost effectiveness in this competitive market."
He adds: "Our aim for this website is to let members of the dental industry know that they don't have to settle for a standard bearing, there is a more efficient, high quality alternative available."
With a bearing to fit almost every handpiece in the market, Barden dental bearings can be supplied direct to the handpiece manufacturer or to the dentist, as part of a regular handpiece maintenance routine. Barden has close links with several handpiece repair services, where dentists can send handpieces for bearing replacement. With turnarounds of just hours, they offer a simple, straightforward service and full details are available from the website. Visitors to the site can also contact Barden direct for information, via a simple enquiry form.
A market leader in the design and manufacture of super precision ball bearings for more than 60 years, Barden has supplied products to a range of extreme environment applications, including vacuum pumps and canning machinery. With a customer base that includes NASA, Schlumberger and a number of leading aerospace and defence companies, Barden boasts state-of-the-art production technology and a wealth of engineering expertise. Dental bearings have been the subject of a 25 year reliability and development programme and are produced in the company's dedicated cleanrooms to ensure contamination free assembly and inspection.
