( AB ) English Abstract:
An epilating apparatus has a cylindrical rotating cylinder (8), a plate (94) and
driving portions (15,16,41,47,66). The cylindrical rotating cylinder (8) has a
plurality of claw portions (5) for epilation. The plate (94) has a plurality of
openings(94a), in which the plurality of claw portions (5) are exposed, and
covers the outside surface of the rotating cylinder (8). The driving portions
(15,16,41,47,66) open-close drive the plurality of claw portions (5) while
rotationally drive the rotating cylinder (8) so that hairs held by the claw
portions (5) are pulled out. The claw tip shape of each claw portion (5) is
formed in the shape of a circular arc having a center at the rotational center
vicinity of the rotating cylinder (8).
