Manufacturing of Writing Tips
Mikron Machining’s past is closely linked to the history of the ballpoint pen. Since the early stages of the ballpoint pen, Mikron has developed machinery for the stationery industry to make writing tips and to assemble refills.
200,000,000 ball pen tips are produced daily on Mikron machines – 95 % of all tips worldwide. These figures show Mikron’s unchallenged leadership in this sector. The workpieces are machined on Mikron Multistar high-speed rotary transfer machines at a very high rate and with excellent accuracy based on the most demanding quality requirements.
The automatic production line made by Mikron covers the complete range of tip manufacturing, from pre-machining equipment to the final testing machine:
- Wire cutting machine Mikron TR-42
- Rotary transfer machine Mikron Multistar LX-24
- Writing test machine Mikron ATW-10
