PANArt otained a number of patents for production processes of its musical instruments.
Abstact: Production of a steel pan instrument comprises deep drawing a section of a steel sheet forming a sheet membrane with a bulge, hardening the sheet membrane and joining the sheet membrane with a cylindrical or quasi-cylindrical casing
Abstract: The invention relates to a method for producing a metal sound instrument of a steel pan type, particularly for producing a Hang®. According to the method, the steel sheet required for production having a thickness of 0.7 mm to 1.25 mm is nitrided until the sheet is fully permeated by iron nitride needles. The linear density of the needles is generally between 40,103 m-1 and 80,103 m-1. The type of nitriding can be freely selected. The instrument so obtained is characterized by novel sound tones.
Abstract: Indicated is a method for production of a metallic-sounding musical instrument of the steelpan-type, in particular for production of a Hang.RTM.. In the method the steel sheet with a thickness of 0.75 to 1.25 mm required for the production is nitrided until the sheet is completely permeated with iron nitride needles. The linear density of the needles is, as a rule, between 401010.sup.3 m.sup.-1 to 8010.sup.3 m.sup.-1. The type of nitriding can be selected freely. The thus obtained instrument is characterized by novel tones.
