Fig. 1: Device according to the invention


The state of the art includes systems that examine the drilling process and the process parameter.


However, the measurement of the temperature at the tip of a drilling tool during the drilling process and the immediate return to the process control is not possible yet.

Innovation / Solution

The invention relates to medical and measuring technology in the field of intraoperative sensor technology, instrumentation, surgery and machining technology. The inventive method and device provide both the recording and examination of process data and also the design of a control for the practical application.


Direct measurement of the temperature at the tip of the drill bit during drilling processes in tissue All components can be integrated in one handpiece / Compact design Enables a direct intervention into the active process control in contrast to previous procedures in the minimally invasive cochlear implant surgery

fields of application

Application examples include the bone surgery in general, as well as the processing of plastics and other synthetic materials, the production of printed circuit boards and the industrial deep hole drilling.
