Shinwa Steel Rulers

Brief general information on steel rules

Steel rules of the Japanese manufacturer SHINWA are mostly made in Japan and are the most commonly used rules among Japanese manufacturers. Some sizes are manufactured in the SHINWA owned plant in China according to SHINWA's high standards. Eye-frienly display of calibrations and pearskin finished surface for reduced reflection make them a first choice. SHINWA rules are made of stainless steel accordingly to Japanese Industrial Standards (JIS B7516 Grade 1). The tolerance on length of rules is measured between arbitrary two scale marks unter a temperature of 20° Celsius.

SHINWA Ruler size up to 500 mm within ±0.15 mm
SHINWA Ruler size from 501 mm up to 1000 mm within ±0.20 mm
SHINWA Ruler size from 1501 mm up to 2000 mm within ±0.30 mm
Shinwa Steel Rulers

The graduation of these Japanese made steel rules is engraved, decimal numbers are red (1500 and 2000 mm rule: each 500 mm numbers are red). They come with a satin chrome finish for better readability and rust resistance. The rear side of the 150, 300, 600 und 1000 mm long rulers is covered with a conversion table mm-inch and a tap drill table.

SHINWA Steel Rulers Pick-Up SHINWA Steel Rulers Pick-Up

These rulers have the same tolerance and the same finish as above, but without the tap drill table on the back. They do have the mm-inch table. The Clou:  These rulers have a raised edge on the right hand side to make picking it up from a flat surface easy. The 15 cm and 30 cm rulers will lift up all the way; the 60 cm and 100 cm rulers only lift half-way up. SHINWA steel rulers also feature easy to read extra large numbers and read even larger numbers for the decimals.
