Drinks Dispenser Concept & Pump Prototyping

An interesting mixture of conceptual and practical design.

This client envisaged a line of automatic drinks dispensers which could be used either at home or in bars. In a more commercial setting these would speed up spirits-and-mixer orders as well as ensuring an accurate measure was poured every time.

A conceptual design for the dispenser was produced and a small pump was designed from scratch. The pump was prototyped using 3D-printed parts, and tested to prove the concept, and demonstrate a working mechanism small enough to fit within the compact dispenser design.
