Type A Machines, BriteLab, and Circuit Launch today announced a service relationship to provide Print Pod 3D Manufacturing capabilities via BriteLab, an OEM capable, full spectrum, new product innovation and realization company. The announcement was made during the official ribbon cutting and grand opening of the Circuit Launch facility, a newly-dedicated 30,000 square foot coworking space for hardware startups, and the new headquarters of Type A Machines.
BriteLab specializes in the productization of complex, connected, and collaborative mechatronic and robotic products. BriteLab provides mass customization and factory automation solutions to OEMs, building IP sensitive products and equipment in the semiconductor, biomedical, robotic, alternative energy and consumer electronics space.
As part of its growing OEM relationship with Type A Machines, BriteLab has adopted Print Pod, Type A Machines digital fabrication platform, and will provide Design For Manufacturing (DFM) and high-volume manufacturing services for customers using its scalable U.S.-based facilities. This means production of parts in the tens of thousands can be done more quickly than at an offshore facility with the final product being created closer to the end users, cutting down on shipping time and the potential IP issues associated with offshore manufacturing.
“The Print Pod is a revolutionary product changing the way we design, prototype and productize hardware products,” said Andrew Rutter, CEO of Type A Machines. “By connecting Circuit Launch and BriteLab, we effectively bridge the gap between an idea and full production – leveraging the same tools, and technologies the entire way through the process.”
