Update #9 | Goodwell Co.
This week we received the first updated spring motor samples from our new vendor (see last update for a refresh on why we are switching vendors), and they look very promising! During the next few weeks, our vendor will build and test a fixture to secure the steel sleeve during the final laser welding process that will ensure the outer diameter is within spec. As you can see in the photo below, there is a peak at the weld joint in this version, so it can’t fit within the cylindrical core of the handle—the next version created with a fixture will change that! This was step one of sampling, and they passed the test well, so we’re expecting to see good progress and usable motor samples in a few weeks.
Back again in two weeks!
