Fig. 1

Ratchet
Two ratchets are produced for the Ankylos® system. One for surgical use and one for prosthetic use. Neither of the two ratchets function as a torque wrench by itself, task specific inserts are required to transform each ratchet in to a functioning torque wrench. The surgical ratchet catalog number is 31033030 (Fig.1, left) and the catalog number for the prosthetic ratchet is 31033630 (Fig.1, right).

Hex screw driver
Two latch type, one millimeter hexagon screw drivers (Fig.2) are offered by Ankylos®, one short (catalog # 31033456) and one long (catalog # 31033455). Both drivers may be operated manually with the dedicated screw driver handle.

Handle for screw driver (manual)
The handle for screw drivers may couple with any standard latch type driver or tool, converting any latch type instrument in to a manual tool. Two handle diameters are available, one 7mm (Fig.2, catalog # 31033410) and one 12mm (catalog # 31033415) diameter.

Standard abutment driver (manual)
The standard abutment driver is specifically designed for straight standard abutments only. Two versions are produced, one for "A" (3.3mm, catalog # 31033471, Fig.3, left) abutment emergence profile diameters and one for "B" (4.5mm, catalog # 31033481, Fig.3, right) abutment emergence profile diameters. Each driver is only suitable for its intended abutment emergence profile diameter.

Positioning key for pre angled standard abutments
The positioning key (Fig.4, catalog # 31033485) for pre angled standard abutments enables the operator to align the angle of the abutment intra orally in a prostheticly favorable position while torqueing the fixation screw of the angled standard abutment. A ring at each end of the positioning tool engages either "A" (3.3mm) or "B" (4.5mm) type emergence profile diameter pre angled standard abutments.

Torque limiter
One millimeter hex drivers for the prosthetic wrench are offered in two torque versions of 15Ncm and 10Ncm. The 15Ncm hex driver is produced in two lengths, short (Fig.5, left, catalog # 31033625) and long (Fig.5, right, catalog # 31033628). 10Ncm hex drivers are only available in one length (short, catalog # 31033626).

Laboratory screw driver
The laboratory screw driver (1mm hex) has a large blue handle with a built in torque limiter of 10Ncm. Hex driver tips can not be exchanged in case of damage (Fig.6, catalog # 31033648).
