Tombow Pencil Co., Ltd. (Head office, Kita-ku, Tokyo, President, Akihiro Ogawa), the use-only type Correction Tape of the air touch system with a light tape running [ MONO Air] To add a new series that was redesigned in a sports sense to the lineup. Stationery stores nationwide and stationery corner will be released on November 8.
The product name is ” MONO Air sporty color”, it is a use-only type of tape width 5mm, 10m winding. The suggested retail price is 250 yen per tax (270 yen tax included). (The price is the same price as the MONO Air released in 2016). The annual sales plan is about 290,000 pieces, about 73 million yen.
Redesign was the theme of “Nimble” and “advanced”, the dominant technology of this product. The color is full black, clear red, clear blue, four colors of clear lime, targeted student Correction Tape users. A color part was adopted in the air Touch system part, and the charm that “moving” mechanism was seen was added (excluding full black).
” MONO Air” Correction Tape that will erase the pull force by half surprisingly lightly
The advantage of this product is that it lightened the drawing force of the tape by 61% (tape remaining 10m) than conventional products. I can fix it without stress quickly by the sense to trace the correction part lightly.
The reason why the tape drawer of the Correction Tape So far was heavy was to prevent the slack of the tape when the head was released from the paper. Therefore, it became difficult to use about 30% of the drawing force becomes heavy on the average when the tape remaining amount becomes slight. (Because the diameter of the reel is small).
This product has a built-in mechanism to control the tape running. By using the power of the correction head to touch the paper, “Tape running (unlocking)” and “Tape Stop (lock)” by separating from the paper, the Resistance (weight) that was always loaded on the reel has been halved. As a result, the drawing force at the time of use was reduced by 61% at the beginning (10m at the time of tape), and 58% at the remaining amount 2m (compared with our conventional product).
Our company calls the mechanism that the tape runs with light touch like air as “air touch system”, and displays it with the right symbol mark.
The air touch system of this product is our unique mechanism to control the tape running by using the force to push and release the modified head to the paper.
When used, it switches to “run” and “stop” when unused.
(1) Release the lock on the supply reel by applying a slight force (from 100g) to the fixed head on the paper (figure left).
(2) When the head is released from the paper, the supply reel is locked and the tape running stops (figure right).
This product is novel in that it is satisfied by using the mechanism which drives the usability that the confrontation is technically a light drawing power (a lightweight draw force), and the tape does not sag (heavy drawing force) by the air touch system.
