The E-P3 is easy to use and intuitive. By delivering a precise profile every time, the E-P3 means matching player and blade has never been easier. Equipment professionals now have access to efficient, exact, infinitely variable but always consistent blade profiling.
Top players are sensitive to the most subtle variations in blade profile shape. Even differences as tiny as the width of a human hair – between blades in a pair, and between multiple sets of blades – can affect player feel and performance.
Precision begins with the profile templates which carry the shape you will copy onto the blades. ELITE profile templates are not just laser cut, but CNC-machined to tolerances of 2/1000th of an inch to guarantee consistent results.
ELITE’s proprietary blade mounting system means the E-P3 profiles blades on their own, not mounted on skates. This means that there is always a consistent reference point for the blades, every time they are profiled. It also allows two or four blades to be mounted at a time – provided, of course, that they are the same type and length – and all the blades will end up exactly identical.
By handling two or four blades at the same time, the E-P3 makes the job of profiling blades much faster and easier.
On average it takes about 10-12 minutes to profile two or four blades. This means the E-P3 can profile up to 10-12 pairs, or 20-24 blades, per hour. Precise, consistent, exactly matching the chosen template. Every time.
The E-P3 requires minimal operator supervision and is engineered to deliver precise results while leaving the equipment manager free to do other useful things. Simply select and install the profile template, mount one or two pairs of identical blades, start the system, and check back in every few minutes. Overall, the ELITE system greatly reduces the hands-on time an equipment manager needs to spend on custom blade preparation.
The profiling operation takes place within an enclosed cabinet, which controls dust and noise and ensures operator safety.
The E- P3 offers by far the widest range of profile choices on the market. ELITE offers a huge selection of proven, factory-calibrated profile templates and also welcomes special orders. We will quickly supply custom templates with the required profile characteristics.
Our wide range of profiles allows for more customized options, ensuring a perfect match between player and profile and ultimately higher performance.
