Ball pen writing test

Actually only with its new high precision microprocessor control you can test the quality of your ball pens, refills or inks (and now even paintbrushes or cosmetic pens) in an absolutely objective and repetitive way, as all writing conditions are tightly under control. A practical multi functional LCD display helps you to check at any time all important parameters with most indications in clear English or with easily understandable abbreviations.

Thanks to a very sophisticated software, you can now define exactly the paper advancement during each revolution regardless of writing speed for easier handling and better comparison of different tests.Standard minimum advancement is 0.3 mm per revolution (but you can ask for a lower value as you wish) so that you will save a lot of paper for life tests of most refills.

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 (in meters per minute)
  • paper advancement (in mm per revolution)
  • length of writing test (in meter)
  • automatic stop after a predefined writing length (in meter)
  • momentary pause and restart at same speed and paper advancement
  • writing angle
  • writing force ranging from 1 to 2 N (definable at order)
  • writing force ranging from 0.07 to 4 N (special version MINIWRITE/ZF) New

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