THE JLP AIRBRUSHES PROJECT :
In 1993 Preci Jura's employees were presented the challenge to produce the ideal Airbrush, free of any endemic deficiencies such as :
The need to possess different products in order to spray any kind of lines.
Difficulties of assembly and disassembly
Problems in adapting for both right and left handed users
Lack of permanent adjustment
Difficulty in use on the most difficult paintings
Soon after the launch of the product in September 1994, the demonstration prototype, result of the work of Preci Jura's research department received all the votes during the Micronora Golden Micron competition, an international exhibition of micromecanics in Besancon.
The first batch of devices produced were distributed to airbrushes specialists. Their judgement concerning the quality of the product was unanimous and diverse propositions put forward were considered and applied.
Thus, from 1996, the employees of PreciJura successfully completed their challenge, the range of airbrushes available was enriched with a new evolutional and modular product, the JLP Airbrush.
