Pencil Inside ! / Disinfection facilities

Pencil Inside !
Pencil Inside !

We designed Pencil Inside!A fully automated pen sterilization system for public places, which uses UV light to kill most viruses and bacteria, including the New Coronavirus.We designed two openings,which can make the pen out and in.So that users can put their used pens into the inlet to ensure cleanliness and safety for the next use.The pen can also be removed from the exit port at any time by induction,and a thoroughly disinfected pen can be used.Each pen is placed in a separate pen holder,which allows each pen to have a disinfection cycle,improving overall efficiency and ensuring efficiency in high-intensity use.
