Vacuson 60 LP

Infiltration pump
The infiltration pump with its well accessible tube set compartment, on the right side of the control unit, can be accessed by a practical closure mechanism. The fixation of the tube set is done by lateral clamping levers. The peristaltic pump can be easily fitted with a replacement tubing set.

 

Dual-piston pump, max. vacuum up to -0.9 bar/686 mmHG
The high performance of the Vacuson 60 LP vacuum pump of 60 liters per minute is achieved by a dual-piston pump, which is oper- ated without any lubricant due to PTFE-graphite piston rings. The uniform, pulse-free type of suction of this vacuum pump is an impor- tant criterion for gentle treatment in liposuction.

Conform Cannula handpiece
Besides the suction of fat cells the Conform Cannula handpiece is also responsible for the scattering of the tissue by cannula strokes of 3600 strokes per minute, hence the extraction can be carried out more effectively. To loosen the tissue and release the fat cells, a stroke travel of 2 mm is sufficient.

Vario pedal
After adjusting the maximum vacuum at the control unit, the device is basically regulated by the pedal. The blue foot switch on the left side of the pedal starts the pump. The yellow one, on the right side, sets the cannula stroke in motion. With the pedal the infiltration performance is regulated up to the level of the adjustment. With the practical carrier bar the pedal can be easily relocated by foot.

Company details

Growth in spite of recession
On July 5th 1974, the one-man company was converted into the stock corporation "NOUVAG AG". At that time, many companies had to grapple with an upcoming recession. NOUVAG AG was not only unaffected by this economic slump, but quite on the contrary saw itself confronted with the necessity of making plans for expansion, as the steadily growing volume of orders no longer permitted optimal production procedures at the site where the company was located at that time.

In 1976, the company was able to move to a new plant. Even at this early stage, Beda Hutter, the dynamic entrepreneur, had realised that successful exploitation of the market and further expansion of the company would only be possible if the company developed its own range of products. Market analysis combined with an element of intuition led NOUVAG AG to venture into the crisis-proof segment of medical technology with its excellent future potential.

Expansion and relocation to Goldach
Thanks to the superb quality of the products, the company succeeded in expanding not only its geographical market, but also its product range. Steady growth soon led to new problems with insufficient space. A planned expansion at the Rosengartenstrasse site was delayed time and again by additional legal injunctions or appeals, and so it was almost a stroke of luck when the opportunity came in 1991/92 to take over the vacant "Odol" plant complete with office building and high-rack storage facility. .

At the beginning of 1992, part of the production was moved to these facilities located in Goldach. When the Rothenstein property was purchased and the château-like mansion renovated and converted into an administration building, the relocation of the administration to Goldach, which took place in early December 1993, followed as logical consequence.

NOUVAG goes international
In order to cover the high demand of technical service around the globe for the world famous "physio dispenser" Implant Motor, a co-operation with the Californian Electronic Services Company was made, which turned into NOUVAG USA in the same year. Around the same time, NOUVAG GmbH was founded in Konstanz. A company branch outside of Switzerland was needed as well for supplying the German market and also as a European Service Point , and the new location inside the EU was ideally suited for this. 

 

NOUVAG AG in 2018
Today, the company employs around 100 highly qualified specialists. Special value is placed on the wide range of in-house production of the Nouvag products. Nouvag is able to produce with an in-house productive value of around 87 percent.

The administration is located at the company headquarters in Goldach next to the "Schössli" [little château] Rothenstein, while the former "Odol" building accommodates the departments for research and prototype construction, mechanical and electronic development, quality management, sales and marketing, production and assembly as well as storage and transport facilities. The mechanical production facility, which is equipped with the most modern CNC machines, is also located at Goldach.

Leading market position
NOUVAG plays a leading role especially in the field of motor driven instruments for Dental Surgery, Micro Surgery and Plastic Surgery.

Every year, around 20,000 new appliances and instruments are used by customers around the globe. Thanks to intensive research and a high innovative potential, our small family owned Swiss company has succeeded in occupying a leading market position in the specialized market niche of medical technology.

Due to ever shorter innovation cycles as well as increasingly demanding legal requirements worldwide, highly qualified specialists are needed to enable Nouvag AG to maintain the leading position in the global markets in future as well.

Future
Besides research, development and a production standard which meets the most stringent quality requirements, the company places greatest value on extending the product portfolio to constantly improve the customer experience.
