Electric Pencil Sharpeners

An electric pencil sharpener makes sharpening pencils, colored pencils and other office supplies easier and faster than when using manual models. With sharp blades and quiet motors, these sharpeners help get the job done quietly and effectively. Produce sharp pencil tips every time with electric sharpeners using steel or titanium blades. Staples has a selection of popular commercial and consumer pencils, electric pencil sharpeners, and other great office supplies.

Choosing the Right Electric Pencil Sharpener
Selecting the right pencil sharpener helps you get the exact pencil tip you need, whether it's a super-sharp tip for fine writing or a blunt tip for coloring in large areas on paper. Some electric models adjust the style of point that they produce, while others have a rotating guide that allows pencils, crayons, and other tools to fit into the sharpener. Models made for heavy use in classrooms and offices quickly sharpen pencils to a fine point with a rapid grinding blade, and other models are quieter or smaller in size. Models with adjustable sizing dials hold the pencil for you, so you don't have to press on it while the sharpener cuts the tip. Some electric pencil sharpeners are powered by USB cables, batteries or mains electricity. Do not try to sharpen mechanical pencils.

Selecting the Correct Electric Pencil Sharpener for Saving Time and Shavings
Emptying out a pencil sharpener takes time. Some models have time-saving methods for taking care of shavings, like ejecting them into a large basin. The basin then pops out, giving you a tray that simply has to be dumped into the trash. Some models have removable plastic trays, so the sharpener ejects shavings directly into a trash can. To save time, commercial sharpeners have an auto shut-off that kicks in when colored pencils are sharpened completely. They have fast-moving blades, sharpening up to 75 percent faster than consumer models. Commercial models sometimes have sharper blades, while school models use a helix-shaped grinding blade that stays sharp over long periods of time and heavy use. Both commercial and consumer models have quiet designs, so teachers, business people or others can continue to be heard while sharpeners are in use.

Why Use an Electric Pencil Sharpener?
Sharpen Dixon Ticonderoga pencils faster while resting your hands with an electric pencil sharpener. The sharpener grinds or cuts away the wood while using an electric motor to power the spinning motion. Most electric models have a single hole where the pencil is placed and held in position. The rotating blade cuts away the wood and leaves the lead exposed with a fine point. Some have a twisting straight blade while others have a cylindrical grinding blade.

What Kinds of Electric Pencil Sharpeners Are There?
Multiple styles of pencil sharpeners exist, from those that are battery powered to those with an electrical plug. Some have a tamper-proof safety switch to shut down the motor whenever shavings are released, protecting your hands from accidental cuts. Some models have helical steel blades, while others have adjustable blades that create blunt, medium or sharp pencil tips. Some models have super-fast sharpening speeds that sharpen pencils in seconds. Heavy-use models have fan-cooled motors to prevent overheating.
