We’ve received our first set of boards back from our most recent manufacturing run.
This week we’re going to bring all of these boards up so we can take stock on what our yield was with our new US based manufacturer. We’ll diagnose if there were any issues and rectify them for our next run of 50. Once we’ve established yield and addressed any problems that arise, then we’ll begin assembly with all the boards that checked out.
We’re slightly behind on the mechanical (enclosure/plastics) because we made the decision to do a small revision so that the clamping mechanism will be able to fit both a 3/4″ as well as a 1″ pipe. This way we don’t need two separate sets of steel injection moulding tools when we’re ready to release our next size. We hope to have this revision finalized by the end of the week and we’ll send the designs to the tool manufacturer. Our hope is that we’ll have “first-shots” from the tool manufacturer in approximately 4 weeks.
Feels good to be getting closer to fulfillment.
