K5plus Laboratory handpieces

K5plus - the compact all-rounder

In the K5plus laboratory handpiece, we offer an effective entry-level model for a flexible KaVo laboratory drive solution.

In this segment, the K5plus convinces through its performance range of 4.5 Ncm and a maximum speed of 35,000 rpm.

Due to the patented KaVo one-shaft system, the K5plus is durable, robust, and very easy to service. The compact, short shape and the low weight make your work fatigue-free.

    for maximum stability

  • Ball bearing is easy and quick to change
    for ease of servicing

  • Proven rapid-clamping system
    for maximum reliability

K5plus Laboratory handpieces

Select from table, knee or foot control

The functions of the KaVo K-K5plus can be controlled either directly on the central tabletop unit or via a connected knee or foot control unit. The automatic handpiece recognition allows handpieces to be exchanged flexibly.

    For specific presetting of the torque and speed values for each user, four programmes are available, in which performance profiles can be saved and recalled by pushing a button. The maximum values for speed (up to 50,000 rpm) and torque can be set separately and independently of these programmes.

    Select and store quickly and easily

    4 storable programmes:

    • Saves within 4 seconds and thus a 4-second speed control function.

    • 4-colour display for easy distinction of the programmes.

    • Quick access to the preset speeds and torque for repetitive work by simply pressing the speed control.
