Paper Abstract

The writing performance of ball pens can be further improved. New or refined testing and measuring techniques have clearly shown that substantial benefits can be derived from mechanical perfection. This involves developing single-purpose machines for ultraprecision forming of cutting tools, for high speed production machinery capable of producing ball pen writing points with a minimum of uncertainties. It also involves testing equipment for the materials. However, the aim is to reduce manufacturing costs and simplify production.
