Beverage Dispenser

Case Study: Beverage Dispenser

A client came to us with an idea for a hot and cold beverage dispenser. At the time of development, it was the first product of its kind to offer hot and cold liquid dispensing. The product used a novel reusable, disposable fluid cartridge with a proprietary dispense nozzle design. An American multinational retail corporation placed production orders of 70K units per month. Pentad developed the hardware and firmware, PCB requirements, software algorithm and UL compliance for the product and worked closely with the clients Asian manufacturer to ensure a smooth production ramp up. Design from inception to production readiness was accomplished in 6 months and included design, prototypes, validation, regulatory/safety testing and production release.



Pentad Design has significant experience in the consumer market. We keenly understand that in order to survive in a competitive market place a product has to be developed quickly and released into the appropriate time window.
