VLAD BLAD – ULTRON Pen
Meet a multi purpose convenient pen for all types of work – from thin delicate lines to fast solid packing with large groups of needles.
When developing Ultron Pen, we set ourselves the task of creating a machine that could be used with a wide range of needles and in different tattoo styles.
I dreamed of creating a machine that would suit equally well for whipshading, dense color packing with 15M, soft black and grey shades and 3-18RL outlines.
It took us three years to develop such a machine.
During these three years we have tried dozens of various mechanisms and motors.
Сlassical mechanisms used in most pens are reliable, but suit extremely poorly for lining.
We tested mechanisms that hit like coils but they were noisy and quickly wore out.
And it was implementing of TRIZ (The Theory of Inventive Problem Solving) that brought us to the development of a simple and reliable mechanism that is surprisingly effective with the full spectrum of needles and tattoo styles.
In recent years, we have been often asked about what our pen will be like and when it will be available for sale. Finally, after years of hard work, we are proud to introduce our Ultron Pen. Vlad Blad will personally tell you about advantages of our pen, its internals, and all about its huge potential.
The mechanism is designed in such a way that it is returned to its initial position not by the spring, but by the motor itself. This helps prevent the delay in the needle going out of the skin when using cartridges with a soft membrane and allows to work at low speed even with cartridges with a very hard membrane.
The only disadvantage of this mechanism is a bit more noise compared to classic pens, but this noise is barely audible and is not a malfunction.
The stroke is 3.5 mm, but due to its mechanism, the pen works with shadows as softly as if it had a 2.7-3.5 mm stroke and makes steady outlines as if it had a 3.7-4.2 mm stroke.
After a year of testing, we have perfected this mechanism and we are truly proud of it.
It is simple, reliable and efficient just like an AK-47.
Thin outlines: 7-9 V
Thick outlines: 8-10 V
Black&Grey : 6,5-9 V
Color realism: 6,5-9 V
Colour packing: 8,5-10 V
Dotwork: 6-7 V
Whip shading: 6-9 V
The motors are made to our specifications in China and undergo additional quality control at our workshop in Moscow.
This model is equipped with a 7 watt V1C7 motor, 10500 rpm (175 Hz).
Length (without cartridge): 104 mm
Diameter of the body: 23.5 mm
Diameter of the grip in its thickest place: 27 mm
Weight (without grip): 78,5 g
Weight with thin grip (basic): 104g
Weight with wide grip: 130 g
Thanks to the light weight of the machine and to our mechanism inside, it’s easier to feel the skin and control how deep you push the needle in it. The shape of the grip allows the pen not to roll around the table and at the same time it is very pleasant and comfortable to hold. The RCA connector is closed and protected from damage.
You can use any disposable or reusable grips compatible with Cheyenne. The surface of our pen was carefully prepared and anodised to become durable and scratch-resistant. The entire surface of the machine can be treated with disinfecting alcohol-containing solutions. The grips can be autoclaved.
