Examination OCR Pencil. This pencil is specifically designed for use with any OCR or optical scanning forms including; examinations, surveys, scoring, multiple choice questionaires, standardised tests and practically any type of OCR form. The rectangular shape of the pencil prevents it from rolling away at a critical moment during an exam or test.
Unlike most pencils which have round leads, the TIZO pencil has a rectangular lead 1.8mm wide and .9mm thick. This leaves a very dark line 1.8mm wide which is perfect for most optical scanners. The 2B grade lead leaves a dark line without requiring much pressure and the lead is specially formulated for both optical and infared scanners. The TIZO Exam Pencil has far more surface area in contact with the paper making it less likely to break and it will also write for much longer than normal pencils. It has a surface area of 1.62 square mm in contact with the paper, compared to 0.19 square mm for a .5mm lead and .38 square mm for a .7mm lead.
It's not just a boring old exam pen though - the rectangular lead is also great for drawing - especially shading.
Each pen is packaged in it's own very attractive and distinctly Chinese looking tube with an instruction leaflet. (Written in Mandarin).
They will make a unique and interesting Christmas gift, ideal as a Stocking Filler.
