COMPANY UPDATES

NEW FACILITY

+ If you haven't heard, we are in the process of designing a different kind of metal rectangle. A new building. We are bursting at the seams at our current location, so we are way overdue for more space to stretch out and makes things more efficient.  
+ We have purchased a 3 acre parcel of land and are preparing for construction of a custom-built 12,000~ sq/ft facility. 3 acres is more than we need at this moment, but it will allow us to expand with new facilities as we grow in the future without moving again. 
+ We have a meeting early next week to finalize the design of the building. We hope to have more information in a dedicated post soon.


FUTURE PRODUCTS 

BAUER LITE *

FLOW ANALYSIS

+ While doing final prep of tooling, we found some design flaws that caused issues with different functionalities of the design. We had to correct them and get one last prototype to ensure everything was good. Adjustments have been completed and we are now awaiting the flow analysis on the parts before moving forward to tooling.

Known Info
+ Injection-molded Polycarbonate
+ Bauer Lite PCB will be the same form factor as (and compatible with) Bauer 2
+ Bauer Lite plates will be the same as (and compatible with) Bauer 2
+ Bauer Lite top/bottom case is not the same as Bauer 2 metal versions (i.e. not compatible) because the injection molding process requires a different design for production
+ Bauer Lite mounting system will be the same style as the Bauer 2, with neoprene pads and taco bumpers
+ Will be consistently available and may launch it with an unlimited preorder
+ There will be a hotswap PCB

Unannounced Info
- Price
- Launch date
- Color options
- What it sounds like (only a 3D-printed version exists!)
- Anything else not mentioned above

Waitlist
+ We have opened up a list for anyone who is waiting for the release of this project, since we are growing closer. This list is separate from our normal newsletter and will provide updates specifically about Bauer Lite, as we get closer to the release. This will also help us make decision on how we will handle the launch, by knowing how many people are wanting a board.
