ZIN-18 Nixie Tube
Meet Reborn ZIN18 the new super-compact Nixie tube - is shape of the history in the strong and smart modern body.
Millclock has designed and manufactured a new variety of Nixie tubes. We intend to set up their mass production for popular use in technical projects. Nowadays, ZIN18 is the most compact and upgraded Nixie tube on the market. Now, the famous Nixie tube’s shape is elongated, neat, strong, and smart.
The name “ZIN” is a blend of the Z class and IN class Nixie lamps. It took us profound research and hard work to transform the two classes into one. Conceptually, first we modernized a beautiful base which is used in the Z class tubes. Then, we elongated a small IN18 Nixie tube with digits measuring 44 mm in height., and mounted it in the base. We strengthened the entire piece to create the modern adaptation of the Reborn ZIN18 super-compact Nixie tube using modern equipment. Most of the Nixie tubes that are used in technical projects are taken from the 50-year-old storages. We offer a modern Nixie tube which can be used in a wide variety of different projects, providing a modern more widely available alternative to the older original Nixie tube components which are becoming harder and harder to find.
The Manufacturing Process
The manufacturing of this beautiful tube is like creating an art piece like mechanical clocks, perfume, or gem jewelry. The process is quite intricate and mesmerizing with all of its milestones elaborated. First, we manually assemble 47 best quality components of the envelope. Then, we form the glass tube and the thread in special machines, and put the whole piece in the “ovens” with temperatures as high as 1,000 degrees °C. Then, we anneal it, infuse mixture of pure gasses, and finally test it on the stand. Such procession results in highly strengthened glass of the tube and leak-free seal at the bottom part of the tube. And those are the two main checkpoints of the tube’s long service lifetime. The service life of a Reborn ZIN18 Nixie tube is about 20 years or 200,000 hours of uninterrupted work 24/7. Owing to such manufacturing process and scientific approach, the tubes components can be only worn out due to the aging of its materials.
