tannertec  

When functionality and innovation meet to create a machine that is based on three patent applications, you can truly speak of an unprecedented product that will stir up the market. As a result of close collaboration between an ingenious connoisseur with many years of experience and a renowned engineer’s office, a product was developed that will please tennis fans around the world.  

Business Idea / Innovation  

Mr. Markus Tanner of tannertec, invented the first full automatic stringing machine; „tannertec“, which also is a worldwide revolution in the tennis market. 

This newly developed high-tech stringing machine is the first and only full automatic stringing machine worldwide. What makes this machine revolutionary is that the stringer doesn’t have to string the tennis, badminton or squash racket. The machine works full automatic.

How stringing must be made to the present state of the art

Remove the string from the racket. Place the racket in the center of the stringing machine. Cut the new string(12m) in half, so that we have two times 6m. Cut with scissors both ends of the string in order to make them easier to insert into the racket again.

An example with the conventional stringing machines of today.

You have to string each racket by hand with this stringing machine.

What differentiates this machine from the third generation stringing machines, is that it adjusts its own height automatically to that of the stringer reducing the chances of back pain. The current price of this machine varies from CHF. 6000.- up to CHF. 7000.-. and is not full automatic.

Yesterday

By hand, every racket is hard work / back-breaking work.

Thank you in advance  

We would like to thank you in advance for your great support, and we look forward to this day until we can show you the final prototypes, this will be the great result of your support.

 

Risks and challenges

For what exactly do we need the investment sum?

We, Tannertec, need CHF 250.000 in order to build 3 prototypes.

Every single module in the machine has been designed meticulously and with great care to detail by tannertec and Orion Engineering AG.

Now we need proof of concept. We want to prove that this machine works flawlessly and we can only achieve this if we can build the prototypes. The investment - sum of CHF 250.000 will be used as followed: 3 full working prototypes and the expenses of Orion Engineering AG.

Risks

There is no 100% guarantee that this machine will be successful, we’re just honest and transparent.

The remaining risk, even though we think it’s quite small, is that our 3 prototypes don’t work properly as planned and a bigger investment will be needed. We work hard every day and try our best to prepare for those problems that might happen. We would immediately inform every supporter and sponsor and present a positive solution if such a problem were to arise.

We are convinced that we’ll present 3 full functional prototypes and on time with the investment sum of CHF 250.000.

Challenges

The biggest challenge was to develop the technology that will go into the first “full automatic stringing machine” and to plan and sketch each part of the machine and to make it all work in theory.

This full automatic stringing machine is highly complex and required immense precision in order to design it. I have invested a large part of my private capital in this machine and now my financial resources are exhausted. Finding the right investors is a big challenge. Kickstarter offers an ideal platform for us to stay independent and acquire new capital.

We don’t have a prototype yet and so it’s very important for us to place our project correctly on kickstarter and to show the potential of the full automatic stringing machine to our supporters, investors, and sponsors.

Thanks
