As you have seen in our Gantt chart, the last metal part being prepared for production is also arguably the most important: the spring motor assembly. Today, we tested the torque of the two latest versions that we’ll take into our trial production run, and we’re feeling good about the input and output torque values!
This is the part of the Be. brush that stores the energy produced with every twist of the handle, so it’s critical to the overall function of the toothbrush. The next step for the spring motor is to test it fully assembled with all the internal gears from the tooling that’s being completed in Chicago.
Take a look at the gif below to see our engineer testing the torque of each winding of the spring motor. It might not look like much, but it’s progress!
All of our packaging has arrived! As we've mentioned, we designed the packaging to be dual use (retail and direct to consumer) - so it's made to be able to be shipped to you in the tube itself, as well as suitable to put on a retail shelf. It's made 100% out of paperboard, so it's recyclable and plastic-free. We are extremely excited to fill these tubes with Be. Brushes and deliver them to your doorstep!
Below is the latest overview of where things are at in the production cycle of Be. Brush. The idea behind showing progression in a GANTT chart is to give you transparency into what we're working on, broken down to the component level, so you know on a bi-weekly basis what has been done, and what is left to do.

Have a great weekend, we will see you again for an update in about two weeks!
