The easiShaper is an electric motor driven carbon rod sharpener which offers easy, quick and clean carbon rod shaping for carbon evaporators which are using either 6.3mm, 3.1mm or 4.75mm stepped carbon or graphite rods. The easiShaper produces more consistent, smooth and uniform carbon tips than any hand shaper. It is designed for cutting single and double stepped carbon rods. It is supplied to suit 6.3mm rods and the VP58-8 accessory is required for 3.1mm rods.

The cutting head incorporates two tungsten carbide cutting blades, a top guiding bearing and vortex design to keep the carbon dust in the dust collector. A blade setting gauge is included to reliably set the cutting blades for a single step of 1mm or double steps with 1.65mm and 3.8mm. To set the cutter to produce 1.2mm cylinders, use the 1mm gauge and ease off a little before locking the cutter. Test cut and measure the resulting cylinder.

The easiShaper carbon rod shaper is ideally suited for busy, multiple user labs, high throughput microprobe labs, and presents a clean alternative to hand rod shapers. The easiShaper carbon rod shaper includes a carbon rod holder for the common 6mm carbon rods. Additional holders for 3mm and 4.75mm carbon rods are available as an option.

The carbon rod holder holds the carbon rod and is inserted in the top guiding bearing to produce precision cut tips. The integrated carbon dust collector is easily removed for cleaning and/or blade adjustment. The vertical design of the unit makes operation easy and saves valuable space. Universal power supply for 100-240V and 50/60Hz. UL listed and CE certified.
