Silent leader of professional pottery wheels

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". Throwing on a potter's wheel Nidec Shimpo RK-3E

Silent and vibration-free

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.

Height adjustment

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. 

Speed control

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.

Pri vybere kruhu padlo jednoznacne rozhodnutie na tento model.
Kvalita prevedenia, ergonomia, tichy chod a moznost montaze zatacacieho ramena robia z neho skvely nastroj kazdeho keramikara.
Mozem iba odporucit. Nakup cez shop a komunikacia s teamom Artik je na skvelej urovni, ochota poradit a vyjst v ustrety je u nich samozrejmost.

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.
