January 2019. Another shipment of wheels and pugmills from Nidec-Shimpo. Although a large company, making drive mechanisms for many types of heavy equipment, they apply their technology to potter's wheels as a matter of pride in a country that reveres pottery in its culture. Every box has been opened to reveal the existing serial number. A certified inspector will check every one of them and affix another sticker to assure they meet CSA Code SPE-1000 for electrical safety. This approval enables the sale of the equipment to public institutions. And it assures your that the equipment meets CSA electrical standards and is safe to use.
