Premax Ring Lock System Men's Manicure Nail Clippers, Curved Blades (04PX003)
PM04PX003: Men's Manicure Nail Clippers
For generations now high quality scissors are manufactured in a small Italian town named Premana close to the Lake Como. With the latest machining centers using only the best materials and passion for details they meet the challenging requirements of their customers and enforce Asian low-cost competition. Premax is a particularly innovative supplier. The old characteristics, such as the screw, is replaced with a specially developed and patented locking system. The ring lock system uses the same technology as used in the watchmaker industry but using a ring and one aluminum bushing, that guarantees a permanent function of the shear blades.
The majority of the articles is manufactured using AISI 1050 carbon steel, which guarantees a high cutting ability and endurance. Some articles are manufactured also AISI 420 stainless steel, which offers high resistance to corrosion and a optimal cutting ability and endurance.
The clippers are assembled with a screw that allows the regulation and an eventual disassembly for a professional sharpening.
The blades are hardened with chemical salt heat treatment to a hardness of 52-26 HRC, to guarantee a good cutting edge resistance and blades flexibility.
The raw materials undergo several polishing and grinding steps in order to obtain an excellent appearance. The articles manufactured with carbon steel are nickel-plated to protect the steel from corrosion and give a brilliant look to the product. Only the inner blade and the cutting edge are sharpened to improve the cutting performance. It is advisable to avoid contact with water, steam and generally humid conditions.
Some articles are available also with chrome-plated finish, which offers more resistace to corrosion, in comparison with nickel-plated items. Upon request, we can produce any article manufactured with carbon steel in the chrome-plated finish. Some items are gold-plated, sand-blasted or lacquered.
