A German company offers to transfer their innovative nail polishing application system to industrial coating and cleaning tasks. The technology improves quality, increases resource efficiency and saves time wherever uneven surfaces occur or where edges cause problems, e.g. in medical devices, decoration, metalworking, automotive or aerospace industry and others.
Industrial licensees are sought, who would like to adapt the technology to their requirements.
A German start-up company has developed a new nail polish system. The system consists of the nail polish and a brush combined with a special vial, the combination of which leads to a perfect nail polish result in one go. The applicator prevents all typical problems, like painted skin, uneven surfaces and ugly edges by adapting itself to each nail, without any electronics.
The company would like to transfer this system to other applications such as industrial coatings, painting, gluing or cleaning. Sectors can be: assembly of medical equipment, interior decoration, metalworking (e.g. welding), aerospace, agriculture (use of pesticides), automatic cleaning (e.g. toilet seats), automotive industry (coating, gluing and painting) , Food (applying chocolate), infrastructure (bridges and electricity pylons) or furniture manufacturing.
Features of the technology include:
- Mechanical detection of edges and non-existent edges.
- Adaptation of application facilities (brushes/tufts, rollers, spray heads) to surfaces and contours, in particular geometrically indefinite.
- Accurate setting of the area to be e.g. painted.
- Accurate adjustment of the layer thicknesses.
- Accurate adjustment of toolings (height and process) for a specific area.
- Explosion proof.
In addition, they have developed a roller that is variable in width and can adapt to surfaces without changing its diameter.
License agreements are offered to industrial companies with relevant applications. The German company will offer consulting to adapt the solution to the respective process.
Compared to conventional ways of surface treatment, this new technology is to raise quality, increase resource efficiency and to avoid unnecessary rework. Thus process times can be shortened, quality increased and costs saved.
The prototype for nail polish is ready for demonstration.
The nail polish solution is to enter the market in 2019 still.
Concepts for other industries are ready for discussion.
The company offers advice and patent licenses.
The German company is looking for industry partners who are interested in licensing the technology and adapting it to their individual applications.
The company would support the adjustment process. Here they offer mainly consulting and patent licensing. However cooperative projects with machine manufacturers for the adjustment are possible within the license agreement.
The company comes from the field of nail polish, so they know the challenges very well, especially in small applications, but can also transfer this to larger systems.
