This is the latest version of the Stigma® Force, featuring a forward weighted XL grip with a maximum diameter of 40 mm. The XL grip makes the machine easier to hold for extended periods of time as it requires less pressure and provides great assistance to the artist regarding the needles’ pressure on the skin.
The Stigma® Force is the result of countless hours of engineering, developing and testing, a truly remarkable pen machine that’s here to shake the industry. Featuring a state of the art and unique dual drive system, the Force is equipped with a custom Faulhaber brushless motor utilizing a dual cam mechanism for isometric operation and more robustness, making the machine maintenance-free but still more than capable of providing many hours of non-stop runtime each day.
As a wireless pen machine, it comes with a high-end removable power pack which features a built-in display, button controls and a USB – C port for charging and pass-through operation (charging while working). You can customize and save memory presets to quickly swap between different voltage and give/boost settings. You can also adjust these parameters independently at any given time to make your work more efficient. The battery can last up to 10 hours on a single charge (depends on many factors such as voltage, cartridge needle configuration etc.).
There are three different versions available, a 2.8 mm stroke length which is perfect for shading work, a 3.7 mm stroke length as a powerful allrounder and a 4.5 mm stroke length ideal for bold lining or color packing. Like all our pen machines, the Force can be used with cartridges of all major brands thanks to the interchangeable cartridge receivers.
With the new “digital give & boost” feature, the motor as a default runs in constant mode which means the stitching speed is not affected by the skin’s resistance. Enabling give will allow the machine to respond to the skin’s resistance and become softer. By choosing between 3 levels of give you can adjust the sensitivity and softness. Enabling boost on the other hand will allow the machine to run without dropping the stitching speed but it will respond to the skin’s resistance and become punchier and faster on difficult areas to ensure optimal results.
With “motion control” you can simply adjust the voltage really fast just by rotating the device. To enable it, press & hold the Power button while the motor is running, then voltage is set based on the positioning, when the front (needle) points up the voltage is at its peak, 11 V, and when the front points down the voltage goes as low as 4 V. Of course, you can set it anywhere in between just by stopping the rotation where it feels right. Same goes for left- or right-hand artists.
The power pack is Bluetooth enabled which allows you to pair your machine directly with the Pilot Foot Switch or our mobile app for iOS and Android (more info soon) to unlock even more features.
The ergonomic design makes it one of the most comfortable pen machines out there. The vibration and noise are minimal while the shape of the machine allows you to hold it and work with it for many hours.
There is also a traditional version of the Force available which includes only an RCA plug for use with standard cables and a power supply. You can always upgrade later by purchasing the Power Pack separately. (The RCA Plug is included in the wireless version.)
The Force, as well as all the other Stigma® machines, is designed and assembled in Europe ensuring only the best parts are being used and top-notch quality control.
