August Manufacturing Update: Still on Track for November, Mold Revisions Looking Good

Our manufacturing continues to move forwards according to plan, with newly molded parts looking great. Take a look at some of the revised parts fresh off the molds below.

Here’s the logo molded into the handle, the winner of the poll we ran a couple of updates ago. The camera doesn’t capture the contrast between the textured logo and smooth handle as prominently as it shows in real life, but you can get an idea here:

And the revised reservoir with a light frosting effect on the base:


Resevoir for Water Flosser


As well as some light frosting applied to the lid:


Water Tank for Waterflosser


Finally, another neat detail which we wanted to share is the revised PCB. This PCB is the final version which will ship in all Instafloss units. The only difference between it and the PCBs we were using for testing is the length of the potentiometer and reset button. (The unit seen here is without the knob, which would cover the potentiometer.)

But that’s not what we wanted you to see, this is:


Instafloss Internals


Our manufacturer surprised us by printing our logo onto the control board. This little detail is a nice way to bring closure to our troubles securing many of the components on this very board. Seeing that logo there, along with our completed PCB is like a nice bow to wrap up the end of our electronics troubles and delays.

Here’s to hoping the world calms down and we don’t have trouble sourcing for future manufacturing runs, though if it doesn’t we’re more prepared now than ever before to deal with this kind of adversity.

Good news.
Expecting delivery in November
