The Japanese company Shimpo is one of the top manufacturers of high-quality and great user-rated pottery wheels and other equipment for ceramic workshops. We are very proud to become the exclusive distributor of the Shimpo pottery wheels in 2006 for the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Thanks to our direct cooperation with the manufacturer of these pottery wheels, we can offer you not only a good price for all Shimpo products, but we are also able to provide the latest innovations and, above all, a really wide selection of these products on the Czech and Slovak market!If you are looking for a reliable pottery wheel, where every detail plays its role in first-class throwing results, then the Nidec - Shimpo pottery wheels are the perfect choice for you!

First-class quality, functionality, performance, endurance and sophisticated ergonomics of Shimpo pottery wheels are based on the long-term tradition of manufacture of pottery wheels for ceramists. The company made its first pottery wheels in 1952. Thanks to gradual innovation processes (in 1958 Shimpo developed the first wheel with a continuous speed regulation in the world), the company became a real pioneer in the field of producing pottery wheels around the world within a short period.

The fact that the vast majority of professional potters in the Czech Republic use some of more powerful models of these wheels is another proof of the first-class quality and reliability of Shimpo pottery wheels.

Everyone will choose!

As already mentioned, the Shimpo pottery wheels give the space to choose the ideal solution for everyone, both for hobby potters and professionals. You can choose pottery wheels with and without housing, different performance variants of wheels for throwing of 5 – 40 kilos of ceramic mass, either with the latest direct connection or with belt transmission. Each Shimpo pottery wheel differs from each other by the diameter of the wheel-head (usually 300 or 350 mm), the capacity of the thrown mass (10-45 kilos) or by the number of height-setting possibilities.

A bi-directional throwing mechanism according to the potter´s preferences is the matter of course.

All Shimpo wheel-heads are made of lightweight aluminium alloy with good endurance. All Shimpo wheels contain a splash pan, allow stepless speed regulation and have a whole range of upgrades according to the specific type (e.g. preparation for a ball mill or jigger arm). To make the Shimpo pottery wheel an ideal helper for you, you can order various bespoken sizes of wheel-heads, wheel-head bats and also a special potter´s stool, which can be tilted variously for your comfortable work.

On the Shimpo pottery wheels, you will appreciate not only their electronic regulation of speed (0-250 rpm), but also their low level of noise – these are the quietest pottery wheels on the world market. Engines are quiet, yet very powerful, and they allow to throw very large and heavy masses of material. Beside almost silent operation, you will also appreciate almost 100% elimination of throwing vibration at models with a direct connection.
