Quick Fluid Applicator Prototypes for Every Challenge

Designetics Foam & Natural Hair Applicators

When you have a new fluid application challenge, one of the most important tasks is to find the right applicator and test it in real-world conditions. But designers and engineers don’t have weeks or months to procure a fluid applicator, test it, make adjustments, and wait again for the next prototype to arrive for another round of testing. This is why Designetics uses every tool at our disposal to get you the right applicator the first time – whether it’s one of our existing designs or a prototype of a new design – so you can keep your development and manufacturing process moving.

In fact, Designetics has a complete rapid prototyping process, and as part of this process, we’ve implemented state-of-the-art 3D printing so we can create fluid applicator prototypes on-demand with a short lead time. Not only do we have the highest level of fluid application expertise in the industry, we’ve also developed expertise around 3D printing processes and materials, so we can design the right applicator for your process, print samples in-house, and get them to you quickly for prototyping and testing. Our 3D printed applicator bases are durable and resistant to most chemicals, so they work with almost any fluid application challenge.

We use 3D printed bases for new designs so we can deliver complete fluid applicator prototypes to our customers in a matter of days – not weeks.

Fluid Applicator Prototypes on Your Terms, with Our Expertise

Our prototype request form makes it easy to get the process started – just give us the name of the chemical, the type or shape of the applicator (for example: brush, round, wraparound), the applicator dimensions, and any other helpful information, and our team of engineers will take those requirements and determine the best applicator solution for your process.

With thousands of applicator designs under our belt, we may have an existing solution that’s perfect for your application, chemical, and substrate. But if our experts determine that a new applicator design is the best solution, you’ll still have samples in-hand in a matter of days, thanks to our rapid prototyping process, 3D printing capabilities, and vertical integration. And as you go through the testing process, we’ll work with you every step of the way to ensure you have the best possible solution when you go into full production.

Our engineers are fluid application experts, and we take a step-by-step approach to solving your fluid application challenge. We listen so that we can understand your process and needs, then choose the best solution for your application, even if that means developing a new product. Whether standard or custom, you can be sure you’ll get an applicator that meets or exceeds your expectations for quality, accuracy, and ease-of-use. And with our rapid prototyping process and capabilities, you get the parts and systems you need on your terms.
