PROJECT: MEDIVANCE AQUACUT

Complete redesign

and cost reduction

ABOUT

The Velopex Aquacut Quattro is the fourth generation fluid abrasion device manufactured by UK company Medivance Instruments ltd. under the Velopex brand and it replaces a costly metal fabrication.

 

The Aquacut is used in the dental industry as a direct alternative to mechanical based polishers. The Aquacut cuts and polishes using a jet of powder shrouded by a curtain of liquid and has no electrical or electronic components. This abrasion technology does not transfer any mechanical shock to the tooth, so there is no requirement for anaesthetic.

  • Overall component cost reduced by 67%

  • Assembly time reduced by 30%

  • Total weight reduced by 33%

  • Footprint reduced by 41%

  • Overall volume reduced by 33%
