Uitlevering aan mensen die gedoneerd hebben zou in oktober moeten plaatsvinden, of is dat nieuws gewijzigd?

Edit: productie vindt plaats in oktober

Hi guys,

We just came home from Drinktec in Munich, where PLAATO was presented to our collaborators and customers in Europe.
 
Currently we are finishing the DFM (Design for Manufacturing) together with the manufacturers and reviewing all the components before production of the manufacturing tools begin.
The production schedule is now set and we are expecting a 30 day delay. We are sorry for this delay, but we are confident that we will be able to ship in November. We are happy with the effort of everyone included in the development so far, but some obstacles was unavoidable. Were sharing the details of the development status below.

HARDWARE
We Decided to upgrade the ''Smart unit' and the ''Twist lid' 'materials into Tritan,  so you guys could enjoy an even tougher PLAATO. 
The plastic injection moulding tools are made and confirmed. Below is a screenshot of the tool made for the biggest part, the main body of the airlock.

Plastic Injection Mold

ELECTRONICS
PCBs was ready from the manufacturer this Saturday, and samples are on its way. The circuit is already verified in house, and hopefully this iteration will only need minor changes.

APP
We are saving development time by including core functionality in the first version of the app. It will be out in App-store and Google Play by the time the first backers receive their Plaato Airlock. After that is done, there is much we want to do with the app and we want to include our backers in the process. We will set up an online community in October where you can give feedback, report bugs and share your ideas and the app will be updated in December and a bigger update in March.
Gravity estimation: We are currently running tests on SLS 3D-printed parts. To tweak the estimation algorithm, we to need to do testing with the final injection-moulded parts. We will ship the airlocks as soon as they are ready and then we will continue to improve the accuracy of the gravity estimation throughout the fall.

Functions in the first app version
  • User account sign-up/login
  • Setup wizard for connecting the PLAATO Airlock to your local WiFi-network
  • Fermentation activity, real-time and historical data
  • Temperature, real-time and historical data (Fahrenheit or Celsius)
  • Specific gravity estimation, real-time and historical data
  • Alcohol by Volume
  • Export data, CSV-file sent to your e-mail
  • Set volume of your batch (US gallons or Liters)
  • Set the Original Gravity of your batch (Oechsle)
  • Specific Gravity Correction (Oechsle). Update the estimate with your own sample.

Next iteration will include
  • Webhook, so you can route your data wherever you want it (hopefully ready in November)
  • Easier function for exporting and sharing your data
  • Better unit conversion functionality for temperature and volume
  • Improved gravity estimation
Thanks everyone again for making PLAATO a reality for all the brewers out there. And a special thanks for the tips regarding retailers. PLAATO will be out in many stores in Europe and in the US as soon as production is ready, and when someone has invited us for a dinner.

We will update you more frequently the next weeks, when were closing in on production. Have a great week!

Cheers!
The Plaato-team

PLAATO manufacturing update #3 Posted by Plaato Inc. (Creator) For backers only

Hi guys!

This is the third manufacturing update of Plaato Airlock. Weeks are flying past as we are closing in on shipping! 
We are now preparing a three week trip the manufacturer with the whole team, where we will finish up the last parts of development. 

This includes, among others:- Confirming the injection molded "golden sample" of the PLAATO Airlock
- Confirming and testing the final PCBA
- Testing and verifying the complete mass produced system
- Get all the wonderful certifications completed, including FDA, CE, FCC etc.

We have gotten some pictures from the millings of molds. The rest of the team is really looking forward to see this in action when were on our way next week.

We are working hard to get the units out to you guys, but unfortunately, some things took longer than expected, and we do not wan't to compromise on quality to hit the time line. The shipping will therefore be mid December. To clarify, the delay is not due to any major obstacles, but to the time consuming "easy" elements in the last stages before shipping. We appreciate all the support from you guys, but totally understand that everyone want their unit as fast as possible. We are feeling the exact same, and cant wait to see Plaato in the shelfs.

In the meantime we are preparing the shipping. Surveys for shipping addresses will therefore be sent out today to all of you.

When we arrives at the manufacturer, we will send out a new update with pictures of the process.

Best,
The Plaato teamMichael, Jiaming, Tarje and Paal
