Update on Degritter
We have some news for you on the progress of Degritter ultrasonic cleaning machines.
We highly appreciate your patience and understanding, but unfortunately we have to announce that the machines will be available for order later than we expected. The retail version will become available in January 2019. This is due to delays in producing the injection molded external water tank through our external partners.
Status of the MachineThe Degritter features an easy to use external water tank. For the beta machines these tanks were handmade out of acrylic. However, this type of manufacturing was very time consuming and the material was brittle and prone to cracking. Because of this we have been working on using better technology for a larger production run.
The retail version of the machine will feature water tanks made out of impact resistant polycarbonate, using injection molding. In order to get the production of water tanks properly set up, we are working closely with two companies that have a lot of prior experience. Our external partners have provided very valuable advice, but dealing with multiple different parties has unfortunately caused additional delays beyond our control.
We have, however, resolved the design challenges related to the production of the external water tanks and have an agreement in place with the company who will produce them. Unfortunately, however, they will be finished and shipped to us the first week of January.
The production of the first batch of retail machines is already under way and will reach their recipients in January.
