Production Update

Hey guys and girls,

I know this update has been a while coming, but I have been waiting until I have the required information to make it worth while. Production is progressing, although at a slower than anticipated speed by our manufacturer. Their explanation for this, is that the stamping and forming tools have to be be run at a considerably slower speeds than they first thought they could achieve. This is being done as titanium is incredibly hard material to form and due to the complexity of the Muncher's form, slowing down the pressing processes preserves the tooling, so it does not begin to wear and effect the quality of the product being produced. This being said, a large number of units have already been stamped and formed are currently being sand blasted /polished and cnc'd. Our manufacturer has said they are very happy with the quality at the moment and do not want to push the tooling to hard and jeopardise this.

All the other components are nearly ready, so it is the utensils production that is slowing things down. In regards to timing, our manufacturer is predicted that they will have the Munchers ready by around the start of June. It will then take around 2 weeks to ship the Munchers to our fulfillment partners who will then begin shipping out all the individual pledges to you. So we are hoping to begin shipping out all the Munchers around mid June. I know we are slipping quite far behind schedule and know it is not ideal, as we were originally hoping to send out the Munchers at the end of April. But I'm sorry to say that this is sometimes the nature of manufacturing new products that have never been manufactured before. 

I am dedicated to get you your Muncher utensils as quickly as I possibly can and can assure you that they are coming. I apologise sincerely for the delay and any inconveniences this has caused.

Cheers

Mark

      So glad its finally almost here, you kinda gotta expect delays when you make a new multi tool because you can never expect fully whats gonna weaken this or get in the way of that, plus its TI so much tougher then then somthing simple. You guys are doing geat!

      @barry, count yourself lucky! I've backed numerous projects that never delivered at all and fell off the planet in terms of communication. A delay of a few months - with ongoing updates - is normal and shows a real project in development vs someone simply using kickstarter as a marketing platform for an already developed product. @full windsor, please keep the updates coming! We love photos/videos, too!

      It's fine that the delay is to ensure the quality of the product! Please update us soon with how it's going along with some photos too!

      Cheers!

      Thanks for the update! Pics would be good. A video of the production would be awesome 30-60 seconds.

      Keep up the good work, and post often!

      Thanks,

      Hi Chard,

      Thanks for the support. We will try and post some photos in the next update of the tooling in action.

      Hi Christopher,

      I appreciate your concern, but it is not that we don't appreciate the hardness of titanium, it is just that the manufacturer has had to modify the tooling to cope with number being produced. When you are manufacturing a product for the first time there is always a period of making modifications and small changes as you progress and learn the toolings capabilities, this product has never been made before. I can assure you there are not many instances that manufacturers get it 100% right off the bat.

      Cheers

      I like your communication.
      And now we know we have to wait.
      And waiting is no problem.
      I hope you took some margin in time, because it's not ok if you send this message a second time ;-)
      Good luck with product !

      Considering the sales pitch I am frankly horrified to find that it is only now that it has occurred to anyone involved that titanium is "an incredibly hard material to form". Can I have my money back please?

    20. Kil Han Yun on

      I don't personally mind how long it takes. Glad you're ensuring the quality. Hopefully Muncher will last me a life time!

      I have backed a lot of projects but this one is definitely the worst on the timeline.
