The Nidec Shimpo RK-3D pottery wheel is used by professionals and is designed for regular daily work. The traditional boxed design conceals the most modern design of the pottery wheel on the world market. It excels in high performance, reliability, low noise and during throwing does not vibrate.
Professional pottery wheel Nidec Shimpo RK-3D is designed for regular throwing in established ceramic workshops. Thanks to its high performance, it can be recommended for large products up to 40 kg of ceramic mass. You will undoubtedly welcome the quiet running of the wheel, which is about the same noise as in a quiet room. The Shimpo RK-3D , along with the Whisper-T and RK-3E pottery wheel, is the world's quietest wheel and during throwing does not vibrate.
The RK-3D pottery wheel uses the most modern direct drive technology. The wheelhead of the wheel is located directly on the motor axis without using any gears, belts, gearbox, etc. Thanks to the design solution, the RK-3D wheel does not vibrate, which you will appreciate especially when throwing tall and narrow shapes. Torque does not drop even at low speeds, reacts very quickly and is extremely quiet - only 30 dB.
The pottery wheel is plugged into a standard 230 V household power socket. It consumes 400 W, which is very low, and its design is extremely energy efficient. The wheelhead is driven by direct connection and the wheelhead speed is stepless controled by the foot pedal or hand lever from 0 up to 250 rpm. You can easily change the direction of rotation of the wheelhead by turning the switch - clockwise or counterclockwise, depending on how you are accustomed. The pottery wheel has electronic protection against overloading and against sudden turning of the wheelhead in case of power failure. The risk of destroying the goods and the wheel is minimized.
The wheelhead is made out of light aluminum alloy with a diameter of 300 mm and is equipped with centering grooves. The advantage of the ceramic wheel RK-3D is the free rotation of the wheelhead at zero speed, thanks to which the wheel can be used as a decorative turntable for ceramics decoration. With a weight of 45 kg and a height-adjustable leveling foot, the pottery wheel is stable during work. Included is a two-part splash pan with two clips for easy and quick disassembly of the splash pan when cleaning without tools. It is made out of durable smooth plastic, so it is easy to wash. For cleaning, the turntable can be easily removed with the Allen key supplied in the package.
The Nidec Shimpo RK-3D pottery wheel has the same power and motor as the RK-3E, but does not offer that much flexibility. Compared to 3E, for example, it is not possible to adjust the height of the wheel, it has a fixed pedal with lever, no table for tools, two splash pan clips, and can not be used as a table-top model.
Professional pottery wheels RK-3D and RK-3E have the preparation for mounting the ball mill rack and jigger arm. This accessory can be purchased together with the pottery wheel, or later.

S hrnčířským kruhem jsme na výtvarném oboru maximálně spokojeni. Je vhodný pro děti i dospělé.
Pořízení hrnčířského kruhu do našeho ateliéru bylo jednou z priorit Smetanky v druhé polovině roku 2016. Hledali jsme univerzální a kvalitní kruh, který by nebyl pouze dražší hračkou, ale posloužil všem věkovým a dovednostním skupinám našich návštěvníků. Na kruhu pracujeme krátce, protože jsme ho slavnostně roztočili až těsně před koncem roku, ale již nyní víme, že jsme vybrali dobře. A to nejen kruh, ale i dodavatele, neboť pracovníci Artik studia se prezentovali jako velmi komunikativní a korektní partneři. Za což jim patří naše uznání a jejich doporučení všem ostatním.
Děkujeme za perfektní servis s nákupem i doručením, rychlou a vstřícnou komunikaci a v neposlední řadě především skvělý produkt. Kruh jsme si ihned po vytočení prvních nádob zamilovaly, je absolutně tichý, díky vysokému výkonu je rychlost i při točení velkých kusů konstantní. Obtáčení je také velká radost, neb je i pro tyto účely k dispozici pákou nastavitelná rychlost a práce je tím velice usnadněna. Děkujeme! Vanda&Valerie
