Tecnostyl 628B Drafting Machine Extra Detail
The Tecnostyl Company has been manufacturing quality products for drafting since 1948.
The Model 628B drafting machine is an accurate track unit designed to cover A1 size drawings.
The drafting head rotates through a full 360 degrees for complete coverage of any required angle. The braking system on the horizontal and vertical tracks allows them to be locked, thus enabling the drawing of long continuous lines.
The scale rulers are graduated in millimetres and have a central alloy section and clear edges for ease of placement on the drawing. The centre section of the scales being metal minimises the risk of cracking around the fixing points, while this design also elevates the edge of the rule above the drawing surface to prevent capillary ink smudge.
Delrin covered ball bearing rollers provide a smooth movement of the carriages making drawing a quick and effortless exercise.
The attachment of the drafting head to the vertical track via a double hinged joint ensures that the scale rules sit flat to the drawing surface.
Drafting machines have proven to be the fastest and most efficient method of creating drawings manually. A great reduction in hand and arm movement occurs as a natural result of being able to place the zero point of your scale at any point on your drawing and immediately draw a line of any angle and a line at right angles to that. Compared to the alternative traditional methods of parallel rule or tee square a great time saving is achieved.
