Refill Write Test Machine

>> Now with microprocessor control! <<


If you buy or produce:
  • ball pen, gel (jelly) or roller tips
  • refills for ball pen
  • markers and fibre pen
  • ink for ball pen
  • ink for markers and fibre pen
  • ink for roller pen
  • ink for gel (jelly) pen
you absolutely must have our MINIWRITE/X refill writing test machine.

Actually only with its new high precision microprocessor control you can test the quality of your refills or inks in an absolutely objective and repetitive way, as all writing conditions are tightly under control.

The MINIWRITE/X writing test machine is able to check refills according to ISO 12757, ISO 14145, ISO 27668, DIN 16554/2 and JIS S6039 requirements as you can easily modify all parameters like writing speed, paper advancement, writing angle and length of writing test.
You will therefore be able to definitely compare and evaluate the writing width, the maximum writing length, the ink consumption and the quality at different writing speeds of your refills.

We would like to emphasize that this is the only machine where once you set the distance between 2 circles, it will remain the same regardless of writing speed thanks to its very sophisticated software which automatically adapts the paper advancement speed thus eliminating the need for lengty manual adjustment.

On the large display you may continuously read various data like the time needed to end the test, the required paper length and other information. And last but not least, most parameters and measurements are shown on the display in clear english or easily understandable abbreviations (other languages possible).

Additional informations like the time needed to complete the current test are available at any time.

You can easily modify following parameters:
  • writing speed of refill
  • paper advancement
  • length of writing test
  • automatic stop after a predefined writing length
  • momentary pause and restart at same speed and paper advancement
  • writing angle
  • writing force (definable at order)

All modified parameters will be remembered by the machine even after switching it off.
