At the beginning of August we relocated our CNC machine shop from Rocklin to the small community of Red Bluff in northern California, with a partner, DOCO Engineering. We were unable to keep up with demand internally, and we were always out of stock [and we still are]. Further, our CNC machines were right next to our surface mount electronics line — the manufacturing heart of our business and processes we want to keep clean. Our new location has four Haas CNC running simultaneously, making parts.
- Gripper 3.0 should be back in stock by mid-October.
- Motor Mount and Wheel Kit 26 kits are in stock and another kit run is in process at Parallax.
- 6.5″ Hub Motors with Encoders and Mounting Blocks Bundle (set of two) are now in stock. The release of this hardware depends on the new P2 Motor Driver Add-On Module, the controller for the system.
- Heavy Duty Caster Wheel Kit (#64080) has been released! This product replaces the existing Caster Wheel Kit and works well with the above motors.
By November we should be fully caught up on demand and able to consider building new robotic products to accompany our electronics.
