Brush development at Zahn

Brush trendsetter and innovative development partner

Significant milestones in brush development, such as the replacement of pony hair with Ponex® synthetic hair, the world's first use of synthetic Brislon® bristle with flag, and a variety of vegan brush series for cosmetic applications were initiated by Zahn Pinselmanufaktur.

In-depth knowledge of brush application, close customer contact as well as creativity and fun in the development process are for us the prerequisites for innovative and successful solutions.

Take us at our word and let us start working on your individual success story today!

A further step in the consistent development of our technology portfolio is the use of 3D printing technology, through which three-dimensional workpieces are built up layer by layer. The process is controlled by a special computer program.

In concrete terms, the 3D printer is used at Zahn for the production of tool parts and for the creation of prototypes. Very precise workpieces can be created.  Brush head production, with its high quality standards, is the main beneficiary of the new high-tech technology.

Thanks to various innovation projects in the areas of manufacturing logistics, production technology and the further development of synthetic hair, Zahn Pinselmanufaktur has been awarded the Foundation Seal of the German Donors' Association.

The association's support programs improve the international competitiveness of our industrial craft business and thus sustainably strengthen Germany as a production location. Continuous process improvement as well as material research and development are deeply rooted in the manufactory's corporate philosophy.
