HEIPI finally got the European Patent!
We are very pleased to share this news with you. After a long-time examination, we finally received a letter from the European Patent Office, informing us that a European patent is granted to our patent application for TWO-DEGREE-OF-FREEDOM AND THREE-DEGREE-OF-FREEDOM SWITCHABLE BALL JOINT STRUCTURE (Patent No. 20789817.2).
After the international search report and written opinion of PCT application received in 2020, the Chinese Invention Patent granted in April 2021 and the Japanese Patent granted in March 2022, the European patent is the fourth significant intellectual property protection granted for the TWO-DEGREE-OF-FREEDOM AND THREE-DEGREE-OF-FREEDOM SWITCHABLE BALL JOINT STRUCTURE.
This patented structure is the core technology applied on K2 series and KF60 ball head, with which the ball head simulates the counterbalance system of the fluid head with a maximum weight of 8kg in two-degree of freedom, and also able to switch to a ordinary gimbal in three-degree of freedom.
