Fun Fact
Teflon was discovered at Dupont in 1938 by Roy Plunkett and Jack Rebok while trying to develop a new Freon-like refrigerant. One of the first uses of Teflon was in the making of the atomic bomb. It was first used as a cooking surface in France in 1954.

Lightning simulator

Our Client

A manufacturer of lightning rods was having difficulty with sales demo kits designed to simulate lightning on a model house.  The demo kits had been designed nearly 50 years ago and were based on outdated technology. Facing complete loss of the last remaining demo units, the customer enlisted Inventure to update the technology and fabricate a new set of lightning simulators.

Our Solution

Step one in the redesign process was to study the operation of the few remaining outdated demo units.  After gaining a thorough understanding of the device and of the customer's requirements, Inventure set out to bring the latest materials, components and safety features into the redesign.  The result is a portable, attractive and robust lightning simulator that produces sparks up to 8 inches long.
