Supply and production schedule
As explained in the previous update, we are arrived at a point where all of our supply contracts have been signed for several weeks now. In order to launch the production, we need to gather all of the components, tools for production and testings, as well as essentials documents expected from each supplier.
Today, part of our suppliers are off schedule, delays that are unfortunately out of our sphere of influence. Those events are quite usual in industrialized processes, in complexe projects such as our. Also, our low level of purchase is not important enough to be made a matter of priority, but it doesn’t mean any less true it’s a disappointment for us. And unfortunatly, due to the summer annual leaves, production can’t start before end of august which means first SteadXP will be rescheduled to be shipped in september.
In a previous update we shared with you the disappointment regarding our previous certification lab that discovered it didn’t have the right approval to certify our. We have had to do again the major part of the testing in a parisian lab from the same company thinking it would come to an end in june.
As expected, the new testing phase was successfully completed as explained in the previous update. Our relationship with this company went from good to strained. And they did not point us that we were missing some electrical safety tests which have to be done now.
Those thermoformed pieces are made thanks to a steel mold. This process allows us to produce large number of plastic parts required to build our SteadXP’s. It also ensures a quality regularity in production. Later, those parts will be produced in France to allow us a better control on production and availability.
