FROM LIQUID TO SOLID
REDEFINING BRUSH MANUFACTURING WITH PATENTED TECHNOLOGY
OPT’s Lumofil™ technology provides our clients with a simplified manufacturing experience that avoids the time consuming tooling and adjustment process of traditional injection molding. Our integrated manufacturing system shortens lead times and eliminates the need for recurrent design calibrations.
UNLIMITED DESIGN POSSIBILITIES
We believe the use of technology should be intuitive, enhancing rather than restricting a designer’s creativity. Our product development team works closely with our clients to formulate unique products with endless aesthetic options.
DISCOVER THE BENEFITS OF WORKING WITH LUMOFIL™
Our mascara applicator wands are made from a single material using a formula specifically developed for mascara performance. The material’s properties allow for a high-fidelity translation from our clients’ digital design specifications to the physical product which accommodates rapid revisions and continuous improvements during each step of the development process. By manipulating the microstructure of our material we can reduce product weight, increase material resolution, modulate flexibility, and allow for greater aesthetic options.
OPT provides brands the materials and tools to create safer, cleaner, and more sustainable products. Our bio-based wand formulation is partially derived from plant-based by-products, in an ongoing effort to offer our clients an environmentally-conscious formula that doesn’t compromise quality. The materials we use for our brushes are engineered to successfully interact with different mascara formulations and flawlessly coat different lash types.
With no minimum unit quantity required, our in-house manufacturing suite is uniquely equipped to execute pilot launches, limited-edition product releases, and full-scale production runs for mass manufacturing. OPT’s Lumofil™ technology is a new standard for what brands and consumers can expect in a mascara bottle.
Our advanced modeling software allows clients to independently adjust the shape of each wand and bristle, down to the micron-level. This system enables us to develop products with the softness of fiber bristles and specialized silhouettes of injection molding without the hassle of costly molds and uninspiring shapes. In turn, we can give clients instant feedback on the performance of any design, and offer a variety of rapid production solutions that traditional manufacturers cannot provide.
GET TO KNOW OUR TEAM
Spun off from the MIT Media Lab, OPT Industries was founded with the goal of pushing the design and production limitations of additive manufacturing. Drawing inspiration from both nature and industrial production, we build highly automated systems to manufacture mechanical metamaterials at commercial scale. Our patented technology provides material solutions to industries in medical, cosmetics, fashion, automotive, sports and beyond.
