The Lares 557 is lightweight and compact. Turbine operates at very high speeds – 430,000 rpm+ at about 32 psig optimum operating pressure. The 557 has one on the smallest heads on the market (10.2 mm head diameter), and can be purchased with standard chuck (requiring bur tool) or pushbutton autochuck. Like the Lares 757, the 557 has a very specific impeller design, not found in other handpieces, which makes very efficient use of your stored air supply. This design also provides a very smooth cut with minimal vibration.
