    Recommended products Vol.2: “Adjustable Burr Cutter (Patent No. 5848715)” for Helio machine

    19 Adjustable burr cutter

    Have you ever had any scars, scratches, or craters while you are engraving cylinders?

    Almost all of those problems are caused by burrs that are not cleaned up by burr cutter.
    *Burr is made after copper cylinder is engraved by diamond stylus.
    Especially when you change cylinder size that from small to large and vice versa, those troubles occur frequently.
    Unfortunately original burr cutter does not cover all size of cylinders, because this fixed feature of diamond.
    It may be good for just several cylinder sizes but no-good for outside of that range.

    Our new burr cutter is movable. It means you can change cutter angle whatever you want.
    Why do you need this movement?
    As you know touching point between burr cutter and cylinder is different when you use different diameter (circumferential length) of cylinders.
    If you can set burr cutters as same angle always, you can remove burrs easily!

    Another good point is this cutter(blade) part is detachable.
    When cutter itself become dull, you can change it in a minute and you do not have to do unit adjustment anymore.

    If you are interested in this new item, please tell us. We will prepare you free trial sample soon.

    Recommended products Vol.3: “Direct Acting Sliding Shoe for Helio Machines”


    Sliding shoe measures the distance between copper cylinder and engraving head.

    You may have to change its zero point (reference point) every time changing stylus.
    Original model of sliding shoe rotates for changing its length, but sometimes this movement makes scratches on a cylinder surface because of uneven abrasion of top part(diamond).
    This problem is inseparable as long as sliding shoe makes rotation.
    If cylinder got those scratches, it is difficult to make shipment as a good item.
    We will give you a solution for such a kind of frustration and disgusting situation.
    Our direct acting sliding shoe does not rotate, but changes length as usual.
    It means diamond touches same face to cylinder every time.
    No more scratches and reduce your rejection rate.

    Recommended products Vol.4: “Grinding Stone Clamping Unit (Patent No. 5848691)”


    When you make cylinders, how do you fix and remove grinding stone on your grinding machine right now?

    Do you use any chemical agents (adhesion bond, silicon, solvent, thinner or so) for that?
    Are those items safe on the body? Nobody thinks so. It maybe accumulated in your body before you notice.
    If you use any heat (portable gas stove, burner and etc.), aren’t you scare fires?
    Another question is, how many minutes do those works take?
    Plus, do glue or double-sided tapes fix stone and plate exactly the good position?
    Sometimes OK but sometimes not. Who knows?

    Even if you are satisfied your current situation, our new attachment will help you a lot.
    Look at this kit; it does not need any chemicals.
    You do not need to wait such a long time till stone is ready, either.
    And this unit gets a good center position every time, this good position brings you good surface roughness always.

    Try our product and feel more comfortable. Let’s avoid all of life’s irritations.

    See the details of “Finish Processing”

    Where is your stylus originally from?

    Stylus what you are using is really made by that manufacture’s country?
    It may be difficult to confirm the truth by yourself, because almost all of users have never polished diamond on their side.
    We have heard of an interesting story these days; it seems like a maker makes stylus in a third country, not in Europe. However he labels his original name on the box of stylus. It is a kind of false advertising and we do not agree this business style.
    Of course 100 % of our products are made at our factory in Japan, even if it is brand-new or re-sharpened stylus.
    If your recent stylus does not provide same performance as before, you would better to doubt its country of origin.
    Good and stable quality is proof of the trust. That is our policy.
