EVO Line - Evolution of Species

EVO Line  - Evolution of Species

We constantly receive requests for lighter yet nonetheless reliable instruments, such as stainless-steel ones.  Since we cannot change the material used for the tips, to cut down the weight we can only work on the handles. Therefore, we have started production of a completely new series of instruments with light-material handles. As others have done it before us, we first focused on analyzing the state of the art of existing products in order to improve their characteristics and correct any defects.

Materials: In most cases, handles are made of silicon which is a great, heat-resistant material, but which tactile features may cause, when used over a long period of time, tension to the carpal tunnel, leading to fatigue and pain.

We chose to go a different way by using stress-resistant composite material, with a “dry”, non-fatiguing feel and a secure grip. This material has been tested for and is used in the food industry, hence completely non-toxic and free from any potentially hazardous substances. Autoclave sterilization causes no change in either shape or colour.

The EVO / Den Tag solution: Our handle is made of just one thermoplastic composite material. This procedure eliminates internal longitudinal metal cores with an evident weight reduction and the elimination of backlash and cracks deriving from the contact of very different materials. This also eliminates problems linked to potential bacterial proliferation, caused by the creation of air bubbles, deriving from the different expansion gradients of materials during the heating/cooling phases of the sterilization cycle.
