Pottery wheel Nidec Shimpo RK-3E belongs to the wheels of the highest class. It was designed for professional potters who have higher demands on the machine"s performance and count on long-term operation in pottery workshops. Thanks to its modern design, the ceramic wheel is practically noiseless at work, does not vibrate and has low energy consumption. The pottery wheel is height adjustable.
Pottery wheel RK-3E is designed for professionals who work on the machine every day. Its exceptional qualities are appreciated by beginners and advanced potters. The Nidec Shimpo RK-3E, with its sophisticated refinement and high performance of up to 40 kg of ceramic clay, has become a world leader in professional pottery wheels. You will undoubtedly welcome the quiet operation of the wheel (30 dB), which is approximately the same noise as in a very quiet room. The Shimpo RK-3E, along with the Whisper-T and RK-3D pottery wheel, is the world's quietest wheel, does not vibrate, and even earned the nickname "Noiseless wheel".
The RK-3E pottery wheel uses the most modern direct drive technology. The wheelhead of the wheel is located directly on the engine axis without the use of gears, belts, gearbox, etc. Thanks to this design solution, the RK-3E is vibration-free when throwing, torque does not drop even at low speeds, reacts quickly and is extremely quiet – only 30 dB.
The working height of the Nidec Shimpo RK-3E pottery wheel can be adjusted using the adjustable feet. If necessary, the wheel can be used as a table-top model or placed on the ground. The height can be adjusted to: 290, 465, 495, 525 or 555 mm.
Pottery wheel does not require special conditions, plug into a standard 230V socket and has low consumption. Its design is energy efficient. The wheelhead is driven by direct connection and the wheelhead speed is stepless regulated by the foot pedal from 0 to 250 rpm. The pedal has a connector and can be disconnected. The direction of wheelhead rotation can be easily changed with a switch - set it clockwise or counterclockwise to suit your needs. The pottery wheel has electronic protection against overloading and against sudden turning of the turntable in case of power failure. The risk of destroying the goods and the wheel is therefore minimized.
The wheelhead is made of light aluminum alloy with a diameter of 350 mm and is equipped with centering grooves. Advantage of the ceramic wheel RK-3E is the free spin of the wheelhead in case of zero speed, thanks to which the wheelhead can be used as a decorative turntable for ceramics decoration. The wheel is equipped with a table for bowl with water and pottery tools. With a weight of 42.5 kg and a three-leg construction, the pottery wheel is stable at work. The delivery includes a two-part splash pan, which is equipped with a proven quick-release system for easy and quick removal of the splash pan for tool-free cleaning. It is made of durable smooth plastic, so it is easy to wash. The wheelhead can be easily removed for cleaning with the Allen key supplied.
Professional pottery wheels RK-3E and RK-3D have the preparation for mounting the ball mill rack and jigger arm. This accessory can be purchased together with the pottery wheel, or later.

V průběhu 15ti let je to již druhý hrnčířský kruh zakoupený u této společnosti, i první kruh je stále plně funkční. Rozhodně chválím a doporučuji, jak ochotu poradit, tak zakoupené kruhy, oba RK-3E. Tentokrát jsem volila vrtanou točnu s úchyty na podložky a jsem moc spokojená. U kruhu velmi oceňuji bezhlučnost, stabilitu, volně umístitelný pedál a možnost volby směru otáček - pro leváky na kurzech. Mohu pochválit i dřevěné podložky, vyhovují mi více, než plastové, nasazení je snadné a jsou příjemné v kontaktu s rukama při točení. Děkuji, doporučuji tyto kruhy i ARTIK STUDIO, kudy chodím :)
I bought the Shimpo wheel RK-3E because it is the best wheel i have tried during my ceramics classes. It took me some time to realise internationally i could not find reviews because it is sold as the Whisper wheel in other countries. It is super silent, which is great. The pedal is responsive but the initial start is a bit abrupt.
As a service, i got the pin holes drilled by Artik and the delivery was super fast in Prague. I installed it by myself, as it is pretty easy to do, however i recommend two people instead of one.
Od firmy ARTIK STUDIO s.r.o. jsme se rozhodli pro koupi Hrnčířský kruh Nidec Shimpo RK-3E. Doporučujeme pro snadné složení, jednoduché ovládání. Kruh není hlučný. S kruhem jsme velmi spokojeni a můžeme ho vřele doporučit.
*Kruh je uzasny, na prekvapenie velmi tichy, regulacia vsetkeho ani nehovorim:-) od vysok az po otacky.. zatial len par krat vyskusany,ale tesim sa na pracu s nim. a cena je tiez super! oplatilo sa az na SR:-)
Jak jinak než perfektní. Dosud jsem točila na kruhu RK-3D.
Velké plus, kvůli kterému jsem si tento kruh pořídila, je možnost nastavit si pedál kruhu do polohy, která noze nejvíce vyhovuje. Bezva točení!
