Quality Control

Writing Tester

We use the writing tester system to collect data to test for the following:

  • Ink consumption
  • Writing length
  • Wear resistance

Scanning Electron Microscope

This device allows us to observe pen nib surfaces and cores at high magnification. This can reveal differences that might affect the “writing feel” that is so important to markers, and thus is useful in product development and refinement.

CNC Image Measurement System

A high degree of precision in dimensions is necessary in molding pen nibs. This system allows us to confirm whether a nib meets the client’s specifications by automatically measuring and inspecting the pen nib dimensions.
