On October 20, 2016, Platinum Pen Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Tokyo, President: Toshiya Nakata) will release “OLEeNU+,” which boasts the strongest lead resistant structure in the series. The Company released “OLEeNU” in 2009 as its first lead resistant mechanical pencil model, followed by “OLEeNU Shield” with improved functions in 2014. |
The “OLEeNU” series, which protects the lead from the shock of falling or pressure of the writing, has been gaining a good reputation especially among students for some such noted points as being stressed free and not interrupting the flow of thought. As a result of pursuing the improvement on the lead resistance, “Lead Tank Guard,” a new structure that reduces the vibration of the lead tank from the shock of falling was developed. Consequently, the lead resistance of “OLEeNU+” improved by approximately twice of that of the first “OLEeNU” model in a drop test.
The lead tends to break while writing and from a continuous shock it gets while being carried in a pen case. It makes you stressed out if the lead is broken when you are about to write. We hope our customers experience the stress freedom of the breaks of lead on variety of scenes with the improved “OLEeNU+” with a number of functions against the break of lead.
*Measurement of number of times of a meter height horizontal drop until the lead inside the taper breaks.
