PANArt was some time ago awarded U.S. Patent No. 8,552,279 and European Patent Nr. 2 443 625 covering methods of manufacturing its instruments.
As you know Sabina Schärer and Felix Rohner of PANArt have created in the last years through patience and research a unique material (Pang® Composite) and a production method that has found a remarkable expression with the Hang®, the Gubal® and the Hang® Gudu.
PANArt has taken the decision to place this method at the disposal of the other instrument builders and to share this rich treasure trove of experience. This offers the opportunity to produce and distribute your instruments within a legal range.
With the acquisition of a license you will be entitled to produce your instruments with our patented production method, thus obtaining a tuning-stable, unique material.
As a license holder of PANArt you can avail yourself of the excellent reputation of PANArt and the possibility to use the expression “Made according to patented PANArt Method” with your products, thus adjoining a considerable enhanced image and a competitive advantage for your company.
Signing a license agreement will also make you eligible to be listed as an official PANArt Licensee on our website.
To find out if a material of an instrument builder infringes the properties defined in mentioned patent and if it requires the acquisition of a license agreement, we offer the option to all instrument builders to send in samples of their material. We will make sure that these samples will be analyized by a highly specialized institute and will then communicate the results promptly. For this analysis we will charge only 300 CHF which will be refunded on signment of a license agreement.

The license does not enclose any training or courses. PANArt is not seeking for any apprentices and there are no job opportunities available at PANArt. Please desist from sending job applications.
